Carlisle police investigate death threat emails

Police are investigating after death threat emails were sent to three people in Carlisle this weekend.

They have, however, urged people not to worry if they receive a message from a Muhammed Yunus Jinnah because it is a hoax.

In the email, Jinnah says that he had been hired to kill the recipient.

DS Peter Goulston advised anyone getting one of these emails to delete it and ignore its contents.

“Sadly these type of email hoaxes do happen and could easily scare someone who is unaware that they exist.

“If anyone has any concerns about threatening emails it is important that they do not reply to the email as it could be a scam. If you receive an email such as this and cannot think why this would happen, chances are it is a hoax or a scam.

“However, if you are concerned that it may be a real threat please do it report it to the police immediately,” he said.

Anyone with concerns or suspicions should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
