Bitcoin or death

FBI’s attention was caught by a new wave of extortion. It’s undertaken via a Bitcoin scam in which the victim is threatened with murder if they don’t pay back.

The scenario is simple. Internat users receive a short email, where an unknown person says, that he has got an order to kill the user.  The assassin-to-be can change his mind and leave you alive if you pay him $2,800 in Bitcoin.

One of the victims shared her feelings on media:

“I knew no one was tracking me. But I found myself as I was on my way to work looking around. Are any cars following me? Does anyone look suspicious?”

FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center is daily contacted by people got into the same situation.

“We receive an average of 800 complaints a day in the United States on that site. We believe it represents about 15 percent of the scams that are actually taking place, so it is heavily underreported. If only 1 percent of people send money to them, there’s no overhead for them. That is money in the bank.”

– FBI agent Laura Eimiller commented.

If you ever have the same situation, don’t answer and react. Contact the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center to register a complaint.
