Bitcoin Bomb Ransom Fizzled Out: No Payments Made By Deadline

There will be winners and losers in the race to become the best bitcoin extortionist emailer. The latest bitcoin scam email campaign looks like it will be one of the losers.

New Bitcoin Bomb Ransom Email A Fake

Starting this morning, from U.S. sources, BitcoinWhosWho.com began receiving reports of a fake bomb threat demanding $20k in bitcoin or a “mercenary” would blow up their building. So far no one has paid any of the 15 bitcoin addresses that have been identified. But, it would only take a few people falling for this to make it worthwhile for the scammer.

The email typically states the bomb or explosive device is made of “lead azide”, “Tetryl” or “Hexogen” but also “tronitrotoluene” has been reported.

Notably, the author really wants to be clear that everything is proceeding “according to my guide”. Oh, and BTW, the bomb will go off by the end of the day if you don’t pay.

Good day. My mercenary has carried the bomb (lead azide) into the building where your company is located. It was built according to my guide. It is compact and it is hidden very carefully, it is impossible to damage the building structure by my bomb, but if it explodes you will get many wounded people.
My mercenary is watching the situation around the building. If he notices any unusual activity, panic or emergency he will power the device.
I want to offer you a deal. $20’000 is the price for your life and business. Pay it to me in BTC and I warrant that I will withdraw my mercenary and explosive won’t explode. But do not try to cheat- my assurance will become valid only after 3 confirmations in blockchain.

You have to pay me by the end of the working day, if you are late with the payment the bomb will explode.
Nothing personal this is just a business, if I do not receive the bitcoins and the bomb detonates, other commercial enterprises will send me more bitcoins, because this isnt a one-time action.
I wont enter this email. I check my Bitcoin address every 20 minutes and if I see the money I will order my mercenary to leave your district.
If an explosion occurred and the authorities notice this letter- We are not terrorists and do not take any liability for explosions in other places.

Here’s one using Tetryl and “my man” instead of a mercenary.

It is small and it is hidden very carefully, it is impossible to destroy the supporting building structure by this bomb, but if it explodes there will be many victims.
My man keeps the building under the control. If any strange activityor cop is noticed he will power the device.
I can call off my man if you make a transfer. $20’000 is the value for your safety. Pay it to me in BTC and I assure that I will withdraw my mercenary and explosive will not explode. But do not try to cheat- my warranty will become valid only after 3 confirmations in blockchain.

You must pay me by the end of the workday. If the workday is over and people start leaving the building explosive will detonate.

I wont visit this email. I check my Bitcoin address every twenty five min and after receiving the money I will order my recruited person to leave your area.
If an explosion occurred and the authorities notice this message:

One thought on “Bitcoin Bomb Ransom Fizzled Out: No Payments Made By Deadline”

  1. So they are not a terrorist organization? These criminals are well beyond ordinary blackmailing, since they launch large scale fear-mongering campaigns. Widely spreading fear, aka “terror”, is the very hallmark and definition of terrorism. Terrorism does not depend on the underlying motivation: it can be an ideologically, religiously or greed induced variation of insanity. They all have in common that they do not care about the suffering they cause, somehow believing the end justifies the means. Sick narcissists and sociopaths.
