Tourist spots, landmarks, shopping centers, are the target of a developing bomb scare in many major cities in the United States. It appears to be a nationwide e-mail extortion scam. Scammers are sending emails demanding “to be paid’’ by Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a non-traceable currency.  The threat claims bombs are about to explode at city landmarks, tourist spots, schools, and shopping centers.

Many authorities are convinced this is a fake extortion attempt, but evacuations are ongoing everywhere in the United States

Officials continue to investigate the incidents, but they are believed to be a hoax.Visitors and locals should follow the advice of authorities.
