Wave of Bomb Threats Sent

It would appear that scammers worldwide have failed to meet this year’s financial goals so they had to resort to plan b.

As reported by social media and numerous law enforcement agencies On Wednesday afternoon, a wave of bomb threats were reported at various locations across the United States.

Those being, schools, hospitals, government offices, businesses and something new, private residences.

The threats came by email according to law enforcement.

NBC News quoted the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau’s brief statement on the investigation:

“We are currently monitoring multiple bomb threats that have been sent electronically to various locations throughout the city. These threats are also being reported to other locations nationwide and are not considered credible at this time.”

Scammers are becoming increasingly more and more brazen albeit, ridiculous in terms of the threats circulating these days, but generally you can still tell that it is complete and total bs.

Whomever is behind the threats is clearly truly quite inept.

Guess, who is not impressed by this latest attempt to score some cryptocurrency?

This is not how we communicate with one another here in America, try texting and shortening the length of that poorly written demand for Bitcoin next time.

Kremlin Bomb Threats – Spread Across Russia

Russia – Over 45,000 Evacuated

In sort of a rather odd twist of fate, news reports coming out of Russia seem to indicate that Russia has been experiencing a wave of bomb threats the past few days that have resulted in over 45,000 individuals being evacuated from over 200 buildings, in 29 Russian cities.

Some suspect that it is either foreign interference or a domestic anti-terror drill.

Today, 15,000 were evacuated from various buildings across Moscow after bomb threat calls were made to 12 shopping centers, 3 train stations and at least 4 universities.

The calls are being made over the internet, which makes them very difficult to trace. It’s been reported that the callers will call into emergency services, name multiple locations and tell emergency services those locations have explosive devices inside.

Of course Russian officials who have searched each location after the calls, have come up empty handed.

It has also been reported that an anonymous source in the law enforcement have told the media that mass evacuations were prompted by a spam attack “masterminded from abroad.”

While several regional news outlets have quoted unidentified military officials who seem to think that the evacuations are part of a Russian anti-terror exercise, performed in preparation for the 2018 World Cup.

Frants Klintsevich, Deputy Head of the Defense Committee said in a phone interview that “There’s never been anything like this before, it’s 100% telephone terrorism. The only goal is to set off destructive processes to sow panic.”

That or, people get so used to them or tired of them that they begin to ignore them…which is not good.

At any rate, several cities in Russia are investigating the calls as “knowingly false reports of terrorist acts,” a criminal offense in Russia that is punishable by up to 3 years in prison.

This is pretty typical Russia for you, conduct these anti-terrorism drills, but do not tell local authorities or citizens so we can test our own systems.

Then again, it could also very well be some group conducting some tests for a future potential attack somewhere in mother Russia.

That also makes sense if you are part of a terrorist organization, do the legwork upfront and look for systematic breakdowns and weaknesses.

Then exploit those breakdowns and weaknesses through a terrorist attack while also having the benefit of having called in so many fake bomb threats, that the citizens wherever the attack might occur, are more likely to blow off and ignore an actual bomb threat.

We may never really know what is behind the mass bomb threats throughout Russia because officials in Russia can’t even seem to agree where the calls are stemming from or why.
