Hit Man for Hire?

I’m amazed at times by the comments my blog posts attract. The note below, for instance, was submitted in relation to a 2017 Killer Covers piece that showcased some revealing vintage paperback fronts:
This is an organization with a powerful group of well trained professional sniper, assassins, hit men which are located all over the world such as the entire USA, CANADA, and EUROPE and in every country of the world. Here our job involves, the assassination of individuals who are threats to you and your family, revenge on someone, oppression, killings of top government bodies and politicians, blackmailing of a boss, ex-partner or placing a tail on someone to know their whereabouts. Our methods are long range snipping, or forcing someone close to them, torturing of their friends, coworkers, family doctor, therapist, etc. no undercover cops here, no risks of getting caught, because we are professional killers: we don’t ask for your name, we don’t want to know who you are or where you live. You pay by bitcoin and we don’t need to know about your credit card or bank account details making it as much easier and safer you.
I assume this is a scam, and not simply because of the poor grammar used. Of course, I rejected the comment and will not—for obvious reasons—include here the contact information it included.

Personally, I've never been a fan of long distance snipping either.
