A new scam targets cheating men, and it has made its way to the Waxhaw area.

What seems like blackmail is actually a new scam police have seen pop up in different areas.

Waxhaw Police confirm two reported letters received in the Waxhaw area.

Recipients receive a letter in the mail from a mystery writer, requesting $3,600 in Bitcoin.

If the recipient does not pay up, the writer threatens to send supposed evidence the man has cheated to his spouse.

Police said the letter has been sent to people who are not even married, and are urging people to contact authorities if they receive it.
