NEW Bomb Threat for Bitcoins Not Credible, says RCMP December 14, 2018

17th Street and K Street Northwest in Washington DC on Thursday afternoon

The preschool remained closed for the day, and afterschool has been canceled.

The RCMP says if you have received one of these e-mail threats, do not respond to the Bitcoin demand.

So I actually just got a bomb threat in my work email today ordering me to send the person $20,000 via bitcoin or they will blow up my place of work.

The person or persons making the threats, are demanding a sum of Bitcoin be sent to a wallet address, or are threatening to detonate a bomb, potentially harming many in the process.

Dozens of bomb threats - all believed to be unfounded - were reported in major cities across Canada and the United States on Thursday.

The threat was determined not to be credible.

Email threats have also been received in Canada.

The Ottawa Police Service is looking into more than 10 bomb threats made to local business and individuals, via e-mail, in the Ottawa and Gatineau area, but investigators believe it's a hoax.

The Vermont State Police and FBI are investigating.

In British Columbia, the U.S. Consulate in Vancouver said in a statement that it was aware of 15 bomb threats made in the province.

He encouraged people to report anything suspicious to law enforcement and that "swatting incidents" would be investigated.

Businesses at 1 Derby St. and 33 Central St. were evacuated Thursday afternoon after they each received emailed bomb threats, Hingham Police Sgt. Steven Dearth said.

Threats were also emailed to locations in New York City and Atlanta; the Charlotte News & Observer and the Raleigh News & Observer newspapers in North Carolina; and three sites in Miami. On social media, numerous law enforcement departments issued alerts notifying citizens that they're looking into bomb threats targeting businesses, schools, government offices and even private residents. Sgt. Seth Tyler said the Chandler Police Department's Criminal Investigations Bureau is continuing to investigate, but the business is now open and operating as normal.

The letter goes on to threaten that if payment isn't received by the end of the "working day" the bomb "will explode".

There is nothing to validate the threat that was found at Columbine, where 12 students and a teacher were killed by two students in 1999, according to Sheriff's spokesman Mike Taplin. The threats are believed to be a hoax.

The State Police Tweeted there were multiple bomb threats within the Commonwealth and across the nation.

The 20-year-old, M., whose full name is withheld by a gag order in Israel, has been diagnosed with autism and also suffers from a brain tumor, which his parents and attorney argue impacted his behavior. "The (department) takes these threats seriously until proven otherwise, as the safety of the people of San Diego is our top priority".
