There is the explosive device (Tetryl) in the building where your company is conducted. My recruited person built an explosive device according to my instructions. It can be hidden anywhere because of its small size, it is not able to damage the building structure, but in case of its explosion there will be many wounded people.
My recruited person keeps the building under the control. If any suspicious activity, panic or cop is noticed he will power the device.
I would like to offer you a transaction. 20.000 $ is the cost for your safety. Pay it to me in BTC and I guarantee that I have to call off my recruited person and the bomb won't explode. But do not try to fool me- my warranty will become actual only after 3 confirmations in blockchain network. 

Here is my btc address - 15qH84uLC49CmC6jRE958Qjcf9WRZ

You have to pay me by the end of the workday. If the workday is over and people start leaving the building the bomb will explode.
Nothing personal this is just a business, if you don’t send me the money and the bomb explodes, other companies will send me a lot more, because this isnt a single incident.
To stay anonimous I will no longer visit this email account. I check my wallet every 40 min and if I see the transaction I will give the command to my recruited person to leave your district.

If an explosive device blows up and the authorities see this letter-
We arent terrorists and do not assume any liability for acts of terrorism in other places.
