Email Spam Now Threatening Your Personal Extinction

hitman8.jpg So, I’m one of the dumbasses over on Facebook who just got a virus because I couldn’t resist when I got a message from a “friend “I haven’t spoken to in years that promised a video that included me. All I could think was, “How am I in a video with this guy? I barely knew him.”

Stupid me. Now all my google searches take me to paid advertisements. Good times.

Still, that’s not as bad another email spam making the rounds, the contents of which read:

“I felt very sorry and bad for you,” read the e-mail, “that your life is going to end like this if you don’t comply, I was paid to eliminate you and I have to do it within 10 days. … I might just spare your life, $8,000 is all you need to spend.”.

It gets worse:

From there, the message warns of certain death — ordered by an unnamed “friend” — unless the reader sends in $8,000 in two separate payments.
The e-mail also cautions the reader against contacting the authorities because the threat “will extend it (sic) to any member of your family since you are aware that somebody want you dead, and the person knows some members of your family as well.”

That email is gonna mess up a lot of folk’s day.
