Hitman scam takes spam to new level

This has surely got to be one of the most disturbing examples of spam ever. The message comes from a supposed hitman who claims he will terminate his contract unless he is paid $80,000. If you don't pay up, he will kill you.

In one way its very far fetched, but people have fallen for plenty of other scams.
