Amarillo Men Could Be The Target of New Scam
The men in Amarillo need to be on the look out for a new scam. There is someone out there trying to make you pay for something you most likely did not do.
Men are getting letters in the mail that reads something like this. “I know about the secret you are keeping from your wife and everyone else. More importantly, I have evidence of what you’ve been hiding”
What does the person sending this letter want? A large payment of Bitcoin. Once the payment is made the person making the treats promises that the secret will “go away”.
The FBI says that a large amount of men are being attacked across the country. One guy said that the letter came from someone named “Gus”. Gus wanted $8,000. Gus claimed that he has webcam footage of the man he was blackmailing watching porn. However, the man claimed that his webcam has been blocked on his laptop since the day he bought it.
The FBI says that if you get one of these letters do not respond to them. Contact law enforcement right away and report the scam letter to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
