The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre has received reports of extortion emails claiming to be from various international law enforcement agencies.
The fraudulent email asks you to download an attachment to view the fraudulent letter.
After opening the attachment, the letter often contains law enforcement logos, names of high-ranking law enforcement officials and claims that you are accused of serious criminal charges. Suspects provide a fake law enforcement email address to respond to. After communicating with suspects, they will ask you to send a payment to avoid going to jail.
This is a scam.
