I Received a Death Threat does that mean I'm important

 I think I've seen it all now.  Me, little old me.  Non - millionaire me receiving a death threat.  A ransom note to be exact.   

So I wonder what it was?  My jet setting lifestyle?  My ford explorer?  It couldn't be my latest Walmart top,  maybe I really should throw away those old worn Ralph Lauren tops.  Oh' well someone thinks I'm important. hee-hee.  

 Normally I would have found something like this threatening and scary.  But honestly I just had to laugh.  I must get 25 phishing emails a day.  Easy to spot right away.  Deleted without reading but really how could I pass up reading an email with this in it's title (all big and bold and everything):

SOMEONE WANT TO KILL YOU‏

And the blackmailer was nice enough to leave his name too.  Gotta love that English.  Well needless to say, after seeing their  command of the English language I couldn't take it anymore serious then I do the love letters and important inheritance emails I receive.  After reading this you will probably be cracking up just like me.  This guys morals make him keep his part of the bargain, i.e. killing me, since he was already paid for it.  Yet my paying him could help him  forget all about his promise.  Best of all I love it when they try to throw in some English slang like "straight up".  Just too funny, though I do think instead of just marking this as another phishing email I should contact the cyber police or somebody.  

Oh' well here it is for you to read for yourselves.  And by the way if I ever become a social celebrity I'll be sure to let all of you know before you read it in People magazine.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am very sorry for you; It is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don't comply. As you can see there is no need for me introducing myself to you because I don't have any business with you, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to (KILL YOU) and I have to do it as I have already been paid for that.


Someone you call a Friend wants you Dead by all means, and the person have spent a lot of money on this, the person also came to us and told us that he want you dead and he provided us with your name ,picture and other necessary information's we needed about you. So I have sent my boy's to track you down with the information given to us and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation on you, and they have done that but I told them not to kill you that I will like to contact you and see if your life is Important to you or not. Since we have find out that you are some how innocent not too sure as yet.


I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didn't tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing to you now my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you. Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? As someone has paid us to kill you. Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your life, $3,800 is all you need to spend. You will first of all pay $3000usd then I will send a tape to you which I recorded every discussion I had with the person who wanted you dead and as soon as you get the tape, you will pay the remaining $800. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up.

WARNING: DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELLING ANYONE BECAUSE I WILL KNOW. REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANTS YOU DEAD! I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, INCASE I NOTICE SOMETHING FUNNY. DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 7:PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF MY DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE ANY LEGAL ACTION. GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY VERY URGENT
THANKS.

  4. Thanks y'all for caring. I seriously am going to contact the police because I think people should not be able to scare others like this. And the thought of them terrifying someone or taking there money is unacceptable. I hope y'all laughed with me just a little though.

    Love ya'll....Tracy :)

  6. Tracy I too would contact someone as it's a death threat and having just gotten off a jury this is a crime. Some dumb yahoo this Steven York is, what does he think you'll do e-mail him back and arrange to pay? That is what he is hoping for. Maybe this can be traced to the sender. Good luck girl. Nan

  8. I agree, Tracy...This is a little beyond funny and I would report it. Goodness! There are way too many nuts out there, and I'd be worried about anyone emailing threats - even if it's supposed to be a hoax.
    Be Careful!

  11. Guess too many got on to the "you've won the lottery" and those other money schemes, now they are trying to scare you into paying them.
    I do agree to report it but I doubt much can be done ... this is someone in S. Africa or somewhere else outside of the U.S. Sadly, they will find people that will take this seriously and will pay. I'm glad you know it is a phishing email ... and I do find it funny and sad too.(())

  13. Tracy,

    This kind of thing can be trailed, but you have to make sure you contact authorities A.S.A.P. before the trail goes cold. My husband is a forensics specialist in computers and they can track this. I'm sorry, I don't agree that it's funny, I think it's sad that it's even accepted as a joke. Whether it's serious or not, it shouldn't ever be ignored or accepted as just a crazy person being weird or playing a joke. Please, if you haven't already, contact someone now. If the authorities in your area do not take this seriously, let me know.

    Hugs,
    Meri
