Fucked-up email

Got this today from a splitter hitwoman (a splitwoman?). Maybe like a female take on John Cusack in the movie Grosse Pointe Blank. i suppose that means it could actually be someone who can't bring herself to kill me cuz she still holds a candle for me. To be fair, i have been out with some people who could feasibly have been secret assasssins.

(i don't know anyone named Kathy Yarbrough, so i'm guessing this is a comandeered email address.)

Fucking weird, tho.

          This is the only way I could contact you for now,I want you to be very careful about this and keep this secret with you until I make out space for us to see. You have no need of knowing who I am or where I am from.I know this may sound very surprising to you but it’s the situation.I have been paid some ransom in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer. It’s someone I beleive you call a friend, I have followed you closely for a while now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusations he leveled against you. Do not contact the police or try to send a copy of this to them,because if you do, I will know,and I might be pushed to do what I have been paid to do.Besides, this is the ist time I turn out to be a betrayer in my job.I took pity on you,that is why I have made up my mind to help you if you are willing to help yourself.

Now listen,I will arrange for us to see face to face,but before that, I need $30,000. I will come to your home or you determine where you wish we meet; I repeat, do not arrange for the cops and if you play hard to get, it will be extended to your family.Do not set any camera to cover us or set up any tape to record our conversation, my employer is in my control now. Payment details will be provided for you to make a part payment of $15,000 first,which will serve as gurantee that you are ready to you co-orperate,then i will post a copy of the video tape that contains his request for me to terminate you which will be enough evidence for you to take any legal action against him before he employs another person for the job. You will pay the balance of $15,000 once you receive the tape.

Warning: do not contact the police, make sure you stay indoors once it is 7.30pm until this whole thing is sorted out,if you neglect any of these warnimgs, you will have yourself to blame. You do not have much time, so get back to me immediately.

Note: I will advise you keep this to yourself alone, not even a friend or a family member should know about it because it could be one of them. 

Tick Tock.

i got one of these aswell and i replied to it and this is what i got...

hello Chris ,
I dont just have time ,all i know is to carry out my job and before anything can be done,just go and deposit the sum of $5000 to the following info given bellow, and send it through the western union because that is the fastest way i can receive the money and you have just two day to do that because i been paid half of the payment to kill you and if you refuse to do that it means you are gone...

You are to sent the money to one of my agent in spain after which i will arrange for us to meet and i,ll hand over the tape containing our conversation to you where he asked me to eliminate you, and i believe that is enough evidence to nail him and charge him to court. This is the first time i,ll be betraying my employee but like i told you in my previous mail that my men have been following you for weeks now and with there findings you seems innocent of the accusation.

NOTE THIS : ANY SI LLY MOVES BY YOU WILL COST YOU YOUR LIFE AND THAT OF YOUR FAMILY. I WILL START WITH l DO NOT PLAY GAMES WITH ME.Bringing the police into this will fasten your death and i,ll make your family go through pain for the treat in your mail BASTARD. no one toils with me and go scottfree.

so just send me the transfer information's and the (MTCN Number) so that my agent will be able to pick up the money immediately.

I am giving you 48hrs to get back to me with the mtcn given to you at the western union together with the attach copy of the receipt of the transaction just to be sure you sent the money.
Also, you may want to consider seeking another form of employment. The origin of your threat was fairly easy to establish & further details as to your true location are not far from my reach... Anonymous accounts are rarely truly anonymous.

Heed this warning my friend & never be near me lest your future be bleak.. You have been warned.

hi everyone, thanks for the comments.

Anon1: interesting. how do you s/he knows people you do?

Anon2 (Chris?): so, is the last part ("anonymous accounts are rarely anonymous") also meant for you? if so, what could this person be referring to? i'm a little confused by that.

fyi, "Av. Paseo de la Castellana 49, 28046 Madrid, Spain" is the InterContinental Hotel in Madrid.

Anon3: so lemme get this straight, are you saying this person is making himself look more plausible by using the real names of yr friends on, say, Facebook etc.? in my case, there weren't any names mentioned other than the name in the sender's email address.

this thread in a scambaiters' forum might shed some light on the matter, about to read it now.
