Watch Out for "US State Police" Phishing Extortion Scam

Be on the lookout for a new sophisticated phishing extortion scam. In this scam, the bad guys claim to be from your local state police and say they have some incriminating information about you. Since they are retiring, they generously offer to delete the evidence in exchange for 2000 bitcoin. It even includes a phone number which you can call if you have any questions.

Don't let the bad guys scare you into action! If this email makes it through your inbox, do not click the link, do not reply or call the number in the email, and do not send them any money. Be sure to follow your organization's procedures for reporting these types of criminal emails.
