(KHOU Houston)   For the record, if somebody really was hired to assassinate you, they probably wouldn't let you know about their plans ahead of time in a text message   (khou.com) divider line 22

What if they're just texting to tell you how sorry they are?
 
2013-11-20 10:03:05 AM
That's just part of the game.

If I got a text like that, I'd probably reply with "come at me, bro".

That or a paraphrased version of the "Taken" quote.

Or mine: Well, that'll be an interesting day.

Or you can text back...

"Oh yeah? Im not afraid of you. I live at {your local police station address here}. Come and get me. Bring your biggest gun!"

I'd text back,
"I am a young attractive white female who sleeps naked and is a *very* heavy sleeper. Please don't come to my house located at (x)"

And I'll wait in bed for them and pretend to be asleep and after they get done, I'll jump up and say "Dude you just had sex with a guy! You are so gay!"

I'll bet they'll never try and pull a stunt like that again.

This scam seems to work like many others.

1.  Send out a gazillion emails/texts to scare people and attempt extort money.
2.  At least one person will have something enough to worry about, and $5k of disposable income, and actually pay.
3.  Profit.

As long as you don't get caught, for lack of covering your tracks well enough, this seems like it could be quite successful.

I prefer the challenge when they run.

This scam reminds me of this....
Music: "Jaws Theme" ]

[ open on interior, apartment ]

[ doorbell sounds ]

Woman #1: [ moves to chain-locked door ] Who is it?

[ muffled voice ] Mrs. Ramilarghh??

Woman #1: Who is it?

[ muffled voice ] Plumber..

Woman #1: Plumber? I didn't ask for a plumber. Who is it?

[ muffled voice ] Telegram.

Woman #1: Oh. Telegram. Just a moment.

[ unlocks door, and opens it. The head of the shark appears, grabbing her arm and pulling her into the hallway as she screams. ]

[ SUPER: "Jaws II" ]

[ dissolve to Sheriff's Office, Sheriff and Matt Hooper looking over a three-foot long metal tub covered with a white cloth ]

Matt Hooper: [ looks under cloth and winces ] Oh, my God!

Sheriff: What was it?

Matt Hooper: Land shark. The cleverest species of them all.

Text back "Haha. That's funny. You kill me."No, wait.
 
2013-11-20 11:48:50 AM
Quite the enigma, this one. By now everybody knows that hitmen are myths, they are all undercover cops. So am I to believe undercover cops are extorting money from victims that are not actually victims? Who do I make the check out to?

OMG!! SOmeone is FINALLY paying attention to me!
"So...A/S/L??? I'm lonely. So lonely...."

So I shouldn't be afraid to submit a link to Fark for fear of being green lit.

*knock knock* "Burglar!"
"What do you want?"
"Burglar, madam.  I'd like to come in and steal a few things."
"Are you an encyclopedia salesman?"
"No, I just want to ransack your house."
"I think that if I let you in, you'll start selling me encyclopedias!"
"No, I promise, I just want to steal a few things."
"You promise?"
"Yes"
(opens door)
"You know, I don't think you've really considered all the advantages of owning a really fine set of encyclopedias."
 
2013-11-20 12:42:42 PM
Just text back that you've paid someone $10k to kill them.
 
2013-11-20 03:05:39 PM
It wasn't a text, but Hank got a warning....just sayin
 
2013-11-20 04:09:27 PM
