The following is a copy of a tweet posted by North Yorkshire Police's Cybercrime team on the 13th December (https://twitter.com/NYPDIIU).

There's a new wave of bomb threat e-mails going round today. Email demands payment in Bitcoin or sender will detonate a bomb on the premises. Email is non-specific, threat is not credible and is a scam. Don't panic, don't pay, just delete.

Good advice
