Probably the most heinous scam ever thought of is a new scam that sends you an E-mail that tells you that a person close to you has hired someone to kill you. For a sum of money this person can be called off. I have yet to see one of these scams though I am sure it is a matter of time.
Remember, almost your entire life can be found on the internet. They may know your phone number, your address or other important information. However the likelihood that they actually could reach out to you is not great. After all once you have been warned you have the ability to notify law enforcement.

The first episode of this I am aware of was in Indiana and verified by Indiana State Police. The Email that came through had a subject lin of "Live or Die"
IF  you are worried about this then contact the police and the FBI. Go to the FBI website and report the threat. Copy all of the information from the email and send it to them. THIS INCLUDES information that may not be visible without clicking on a link that shows the real trail of the email through the internet.. at least what someone wants you to know. It can be forged apparently. However this will give authorities important information on tracking the email back to its source in order to protect you or to let you know if this is a hoax.

Copy of a Hoax email... Notice the very bad grammer, and the poor sentence structure indicative of the ignorant idiots of Nigeria who proffer these scams.

Subject: LISTEN UP AND BE VERY VERY CARE !!!

Hello .

I am very sorry for you , is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you donít comply. As you can see there is no need of introducing myself to you because I donít have any business with you, my
duty as I am mailing you now is just to KILL you and I have to do it as I have already been paid for that.

Someone you call a friend wants you Dead by all means, and the person have spent a lot of money on this, the person also came to us and told me that he wanted you dead and he provided us with your name ,picture and other necessary informationís we needed about you. So I sent my boys to track you down and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation on you, and they have done that but I told them not to kill you that I will like to contact you and see if your life is Important to you or not since their findings shows that you are innocent.

I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didnít tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing to you now my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you.

Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? As someone has paid us to kill you. Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your life, $20,000 is all you need to spend You will first of all pay $8,000 then I will send a tape to you which i recorded every discusion i had with the person who wanted you dead and as soon as you get the tape, you will pay the remaining $12,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up.

WARNING: DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELLING ANYONE BECAUSE I WILL KNOW.REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANT YOU DEAD! I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, INCASE I NOTICE SOMETHING FUNNY. DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 7:PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF MY DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE ANY LEGAL ACTION. GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY.

 

Analysis:
When it comes to your life, protect it. Do not take anything for granted. Any Email purporting to be a threat should be copied and sent to the FBI online reporting service. Beyond that NEVER pay these people EVER. IF you pay you will be getting tons of the same threats since you have fallen for it. Your name and email will be sold for almost as much as you send these people. There is NO REAL THREAT. Still take no chances and forward to the FBI, and report the mail to local authorities.
