I’m usually a good sport about phishing scams, but a death threat via Twitter private message goes too far. When you follow lots of people on Twitter, you’re bound to find a few, well, out there. I should probably report this one. Pro tip – if you want to extort money from somebody, come up with something more creative than a fake death threat. I give this one an F. It’s just creepy.
