‘Ignore’ death threat
The Internal Affairs Department is warning the public to ignore a death-threat email that is again doing the rounds. Senior investigator Toni Demetriou says the anti-spam compliance unit has received several complaints about a threatening email people have received from a ‘‘contract killer’’. ‘‘He demands $5000 to prevent ‘his boys’ carrying out the killing and warns the recipient not to go to the police,’’ Mr Demetriou said.‘‘we always encourage recipients to complain to Internal Affairs regarding any spam email they receive and then delete it. With this email people should just ignore it and delete it.’’ The email is signed by Abdulla Azzam. Mr Demetriou said this is just one of many scams circulating and people can learn more from the department’s website.
