Hitman E-Scam Exposed
(United Kingdom) Hundreds of (retired) pensioners have been targeted by an email scam telling them to pay £5,000 or be killed by a HITMAN.
The chilling message, believed to be sent by an Eastern European gang, claims the "killers" have been watching OAPs in Eastbourne, East Sussex.
One woman victim aged 72, said: "I'm terrified. I checked my account to see if I had enough to pay them."
Cops dubbed the scam "particularly nasty".
