Has anybody else received this one?
How are you?
As you saw in the message that i sent to you before, Someone that is
really close to you want you DEAD. We were paid to KILL/ASSASINATE you.
Now You have just two options, either to LIVE OR DIE. If you want to
LIVE, then you are to pay USD 10,000 Dollards for we to spare your life.
But if you don't pay this mentioned amount of money that means you have
to DIE, We have no option than to KILL you.
I must inform you that we have no time to waste. You have to be fast in
every thing you do because the person who want you DEAD will soon ask
about the mission to KILL/ASSASINATE you.
WARNING: DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELL ANYONE
BECAUSE I WILL KNOW. REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANT YOU
DEAD! I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, INCASE I NOTICE SOMETHING
FUNNY. DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 7:30PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU
AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF MY DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD
AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLIED WITH MY DEMANDS, THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE
ANY LEGAL ACTION.
GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY.

In the United States, threatening a person's life, be it in written form or verbally is considered a felony. I don't consider it very hilarious, prank or not.

Yes, has anyone else received it? Think, Tim, think. Who says it's a general scam?
Could it be the in-laws? Someone you've annoyed recently? Or not so recently - maybe some schoolmate whose conker you smashed to pieces in front of the whole class all those years ago, but they've never forgotten? The poison drip-drip-drips down through the years.
No, not funny at all, but it is rather strange they ask "How are you?" at the beginning. The answer presumably being, "Hunky dory until I read the next bit, pal".
And they sign "Fox James". Maybe they didn't see the end of The Jackal.

...whether I would prefer to be killed or assassinated...
