If you pay I will tell you who put the contract on you.

I've talked about bitcoins since they were like $100 or less. Still taking about them.

I haven't seen this one in a while. Bitcoins now? I guess I'm out of luck. Don't have any bitcoins and don't know what they are.

I'll have to pay in lead I guess

Bitcoin is a favorite of those dealing in ransomware and extortionists but this is a new twist.

I got one of those emails three days ago. It was horrible broken English. I figured it was the Uncle to the Nigerian Princess who has been wanting to send me $1 Million for the ministry. "rlol"

Isn't that +-$7000.00 at current rate? For 7G's you'd have to give me a lot more than just a name......

This thread reminds me of the Jack Benny skit. An armed man holds up Jack & his wife and tells him his money or his wife. Jack answers " I'm Thinking"

I think they also offered not to execute the contract but read the fine print. It would be a bummer to pay the 0.4 bitcoin and the hit man gives you the name seconds before he kills you.

It would be funny to make a counter offer. Tell me the name and if I believe you, I will pay a whole bitcoin to kill them instead of me.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Here is a copy of my email:
Hi

I advise you to take this letter seriously, if you value own your life, since this is not a joke.
I've been thinking for a very long period of time whether it's worth sending this message or not to you and decided that after all you still have the right to know. I'll try to be as short as possible. I received an order to remove you, because your activity causes inconvenience to a particular person. I studied you for a time and made a decision to give you a chance, despite the specifics of my job, the business ethics of which don't allow me that, as this will destroy my reputation (more 12 years of flawless order executions). But i decided to break a rule since this is my last order (I hope).

So let's Break it down now. I suggest you pay 0.6 Btc. I accept btc. Information on how to send you can Google. Here are the details below:

1F6s2JBTaYiLkHSeHYY1qmRPYoTptk1EBc

When i will receive funds - I will send you the name of the person order came from, plus all the evidence i have. You can use this information with the authorities. I would not recommend you to contact police or make any other mistakes, because you have a very little time (2 days) and they simply will not have time to investigate.
Answering to this letter doesn't make any sense, because i use one-time mailbox. I will contact you as soon as i will getfunds.
I seriously feel sorry that you became my prey.

Four bits will buy a hit man? Wow. The economy must be worse than I thought.
