Police Probe Wave of Hoax Bitcoin Bomb Threats In U.S., Canada

According to Reuters, U.S. law enforcement officials on Friday were probing a wave of hoax emailed bomb threats demanding bitcoin payment that caused worry but no damage in the United States and Canada.

Hundreds of businesses, government offices and schools received letters, threatening to set off explosives if payments of $20,000 in cryptocurrency were not received.

The threats sparked evacuations of schools and transit facilities before the FBI dismissed the threats as lacking credibility.
