Public Safety Announcement from the Parkersburg Police Department

We at the Parkersburg Police Department would like to alert the public that we are currently investigating numerous bomb threats being delivered via email to area businesses. Though we must investigate each as though they are a credible threat, we believe this to be part of a larger incident that is happening across the nation today where bomb threats have been delivered via email to businesses and local government offices in Colorado, New Jersey, Ohio and various other states across the United States. Our investigators have analyzed the email and believe it to be a phishing scam often originating outside the United States in which the sender is attempting to induce panic and obtain funds from the threatened business. We will coordinate with our Federal Law Enforcement partners to expand the investigation until it is determined who the person or person(s) involved are.
