Chinatown business owners targeted in extortion plot

A Mandarin-speaking extortionist has been threatening Chinatown business owners in what police are calling a "phone-phishing" scam. In the last nine days, at least 19 operators of businesses in Chinatown have received threats against their families if they didn't come up with $10,000 to $20,000, a police official said.
