Email scam threatens to kill

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

PITTSBURG, TX (KLTV) - The Pittsburg Police Chief, Richard Penn says a resident received an email Thursday that says you have to pay out a large sum of money to not be killed.

"This is someone who is taking and preying on two emotions that are of the greatest factor in humans," said Penn. "One being fear, the other being greed. This one preys on fear simply for the reason they're looking to take and try to extort money from someone, and that's what this is!"

Chief Penn says as of right now, they don't have any clue as to who sent the email.
