Harrowing Threats Target Latinos

first_imgImagine receiving what you assume to be a harmless text only to find a grisly picture of an execution-style murder. Then, the sinister warning: “You’re next.” Even worse, what if a caller stated he knows where you are, and unless you pay up at once, he’ll come for you?So far no one has been hurt by what Southampton Town police are calling a “scam,” although a chilly one.“There have been several calls and texts using the same graphic photo or similar graphic photos depicting an execution-style murder,” the department said.Scammers are using mobile apps to threaten and defraud users to send them specified amounts of money, investigators said.It is neither new nor limited to the area.Richmond, VA police experienced a similar extortion scam that involved social media apps back in 2017, as did Dodge City, KS the following year. The scammers often use Facebook to find photos of the target and their family and WhatsApp to initiate calls or text messaging. All the reported text messages and phone calls were written and spoken in Spanish.“This scam so far has specifically targeted Hispanics — natural Spanish speakers — but it’s a crime of which everyone should be aware,” Dodge City police warned. There had been five instances there in May 2018, with police saying that callers may send videos of men and women being killed.The department is warning the community to avoid sending any money to an unknown number or caller. Victims are urged to contact local police if and when encountering incidents like these.Funny MoneyA Brooklyn woman was arrested after using fake bills to purchase gift cards from a 7-Eleven in Westhampton, police said.Kaylynn Dyer, 30, of Brooklyn, was arrested by Suffolk County police September 24 for separate charges, but was identified through a Crime Stoppers tip as being wanted on a counterfeit charge.Dyer was turned over to Southampton Town police and charged with first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony.

“He will come back” – Norwich hopes of signing dealt blow,…

first_imgNorwich City’s hopes of keeping Ondrej Duda beyond this summer have been dealt a blow, with Hertha Berlin planning on keeping him long-term. Duda joined Norwich on loan in the January transfer window, as manager Daniel Farke looked to add creativity to his relegation-threatened side.The midfielder arrived having found his chances of regular game time at Hertha Berlin limited following the arrival of Jürgen Klinsmann as manager.He’s been a regular for the Canaries since making the switch, racking up eight appearances in all competition since his arrival.Embed from Getty ImagesThey may have been hoping to turn his move into a permanent one in the summer, but those prospects have now been dealt a blow.According to Kicker, Norwich do not have an option to buy at the end of his loan, so Hertha are planning to take him back to the club as Klinsmann has long since departed.In fact, sporting director Michael Preetz has confirmed as much when asked about the on-loan midfielder.“We are planning 100 per cent with Ondrej, he will come back”, he told the newspaper.“He has shown how much he can help a team that has a functioning axle.“In winter, he was tired of the personal constellation we had in the coaching position because he saw no prospects for himself. He always wanted Hertha.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
