Bitcoin Bomb Threat Scam Disrupts Businesses Across US Canada

first_imgStay on target FBI statement on recent bomb threats made across the country: pic.twitter.com/lOXnwtBZqB— FBI (@FBI) December 13, 2018Accounts from San Francisco, Chicago, and Tampa Bay highlight the “clumsy” threats—”written in the stilted fashion of Nigerian prince hoaxes of years past,” according to SFGate—demanding bitcoin payment to prevent detonation.The New York Police Department tried tempering the situation by advising that “these threats are meant to cause disruption and/or obtain money” and can be assessed as “likely NOT CREDIBLE.” A wave of emailed bomb threats were reported this week at various locations across North America.All appeared to be hoaxes.News outlets, government buildings, banks, libraries, schools, and other businesses temporarily closed on Thursday as local and federal authorities investigated.AdChoices广告“We are aware of the recent bomb threats made in cities around the country, and we remain in touch with our law enforcement partners to provide assistance,” the FBI said on Twitter. Russian Bots Found to Have Rigged ‘The Voice Kids’ Talent ShowFCC: Don’t Be Fooled by ‘One Ring’ Robocall Scam We are currently monitoring multiple bomb threats that have been sent electronically to various locations throughout the city.These threats are also being reported to other locations nationwide & are NOT considered credible at this time. pic.twitter.com/GowGG4oZ9l— NYPDCounterterrorism (@NYPDCT) December 13, 2018Law enforcement in Oklahoma and Massachusetts also responded to “multiple” email bomb threats, though investigators found nothing serious.Similar messages were sent across Canada: at least 10 in Ottawa and five in Montreal, and unspecified numbers in Winnipeg, Calgary, and British Columbia.“A whole lot of people have had a stressful afternoon just like we have,” Indiana’s WNDU-TV anchor Maureen McFadden told NBC News.This sort of real-life denial-of-service attack—in which the perpetrator(s) disrupts the country by flooding it with bogus threats—would have been unthinkable 20 years ago.But in an age when gunmen and explosives make headlines almost daily, this news comes as little surprise anymore.Of course, that doesn’t make it any easier for the victims.“It makes you feel uneasy,” WNDU-TV general manager John O’Brien said after being evacuated from the South Bend building.“It’s upsetting. It’s a disruption,” he explained. “We’ve all seen how much things like this go on today in our society—we see it a lot—but you have to take each and every one of these instances seriously, because you never know when it’s a real threat.”The emails came from verified domains of non-malicious services, Dan Leahy, a website systems administrator, told NBC News. Some slipped through because they came from a “clean” address or a hacked account, he said.No further details have been revealed.More on Geek.com:Couple, Homeless Man Allegedly Made Up Story to Scam GoFundMe DonationsAmazon Scam Floods Couple With Unwanted PackagesStore Your Bitcoin Fortune in DNAlast_img read more
