Authorities warn of - hit man - email scam


We will be seeing a lot more of these types of scams in 2015.  This and the - I am stranded - scam are the two most common.  Your first reaction may be - how can anyone fall for this, but the sad truth is that folks fall for this every day.  My advice - Delete!  If you receive these scams in an email, record the headers and notify authorities.   Most of these scams are bogus and nothing will ever happen unless you fall for it and respond.  But there are documented cases where the threat was actually carried out.  Either way, play it safe.
