Australians dial 000 over hitman scam

Zdnet - Australians, scared that they may be an assassination target, have called police for help after receiving SMS death threats, but it is just an old hoax.

The story is too old to be commented.

People should ignore and delete this message.

I would report it. Empty threat or not, it's not okay to go about threatening peoples lives. Especially since they seem to be trying to extort money from people.

At the least, call a non-emergency number and report the number/email.

Oh dear. Poor police services getting tons of calls.
