E-mail scam warning by FBI

Date: January 27, 2007

The FBI says scam artists are putting a new twist on a death threat hoax.

In early December, the FBI warned of an e-mail scam where the sender said he'd been paid to kill you, but would let you live if you gave him thousands of dollars.

Now, there's a new e-mail going around, supposedly from the FBI in London.

It says police recently arrested someone for several murders in the U.S. and Britain, connected to the original e-mail.
