Residents of Canadian Toronto and its suburbs received letters with unknown white powder and threats.
All letters were delivered by regular Canadian post on December 18. The package contained an unknown white powder that the attached letter claimed was the drug fentanyl. The senders demanded that several bitcoins be deposited into their account, otherwise they threatened to pay a visit to the recipients.
Police did not specify the exact number of parcels, but it was a “large quantity.” Preliminary examination showed that the sachets contained ordinary sugar. Law enforcers urged people to inform the police if they found new parcels without opening them.
Earlier it became known that fraudsters sold a resident of the Leningrad region massager for 140 thousand rubles.
