Hired to Hurt You
How the scam works:
You are approached by somebody through e-mail, phone call, or fake e-mails, claiming to be a hit man hired to hurt you (or destroy your business, set your house on fire, etc).
He says is hired by one of your enemies and asks if you can pay a bigger wage to let you go. With a very threatening tone he demands that you do not contact the authorities, otherwise you are dead. Then he will ask you to wire the money in such a way that it cannot be traced.
How to avoid:
Although the hitman scam is in decline, it’s still happening in several states. Just contact the police.
