Yup, my company got hit with the latest bomb threat extortion.
Glad our users were smart enough to just report it to I.T. and carry on.
Ya our company has integrated a "phishing scam" button into outlook. Some days I feel like clicking it for meeting requests
oh if anyone is wondering the current wording of the scam
Objet : Use your time wisely
Good day. There is a bomb (Tetryl) in the building where your business is located. My recruited person built the explosive device according to my guide. It can be hidden anywhere because of its small size, it is impossible to damage the supporting building structure by this bomb, but if it detonates you will get many wounded people.
My mercenary keeps the building under the control. If he notices any unusual activity, panic or emergency he will blow up the bomb.
I want to suggest you a deal. 20'000 usd is the price for your life and business. Pay it to me in BTC and I assure that I have to withdraw my man and the bomb will not explode. But do not try to deceive me- my guarantee will become actual only after 3 confirms in blockchain network.
My payment details (BTC address)- 15qH84uLC49CmC6jRE958Qjcf9WRZ2rMuM
You have to solve problems with the transaction by the end of the working day. If the working day is over and people start leaving the building the device will detonate.
This is just a business, if I do not see the bitcoins and a bomb detonates, next time other companies will send me more bitcoins, because it isnt a one-time action.
To stay anonimous I wont visit this email. I monitor my wallet every 20 min and if I see the payment I will order my man to get away.
If an explosion occurred and the authorities see this email-
We are not terrorists and do not take liability for acts of terrorism in other buildings.
