Blogger threatened by hit man

Have a laugh at this email from a reformed hitman

We all receive an extraordinary amount of junk and spam mail. Personally I delete without reading. This morning I accidentally opened a message which made it through my filters – the subject header was “Act Fast”. Turns out, the message was from a hit man with a conscience. Apparently, he has been contracted to kill me, but has decided instead to offer me a chance to make him go away – all I have to do is send him $5,000 by Western Union. Below is the entire email message from Don – the reformed hit man.

There are so many internet scams out there – I worry about people who take everything they read at face value. Do some research – Google internet scams and Paypal or Western Union or Nigeria. Inform yourself, and have a chuckle when one of the scammers tries to take a run at you.

This is the only way I could contact you for now, I want you to be very careful about this and keep this secret with you until I make out space for us to see. You have no need of knowing who I am or where I am from. I know this may sound very surprising to you but it’s the situation. I have been paid some ransom in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer. It’s someone I believe you call a friend, I have followed you closely for a while now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusations he leveled against you. Do not contact the police or try to send a copy of this to them,because if you do, I will know, and I might be pushed to do what I have been paid to do. Besides, this is the first time I turn out to be a betrayer in my job. I took pity on you, that is why I have made up my mind to help you if you are willing to help yourself. Now listen I need just $5,000. And you have to send it through western union; I repeat, do not arrange for the cops and if you play hard to get, it will be extended to your family. Do not set any camera to cover us or set up any tape to record our conversation, my employer is in my control now. Payment details will be provided for you to make a part of the payment of $3,000 first,which will serve as guarantee that you are ready to you co-operate,then i will post a copy of the video tape that contains his request for me to terminate you which will be enough evidence for you to take any legal action against him before he employs another person for the job. You will pay the balance of $2,000 once you receive the tape.

Warning; do not contact the police, make sure you stay indoors once it is 7:30pm until this whole thing is sorted out, if you neglect any of these warnings, you will have yourself to blame. You do not have much time, so get back to me immediately.

Note: I will advise you keep this to yourself alone, not even a friend or a family member should know about it because it could be one of them.
