It’s not everyday you get a bomb threat via text. 
However, it happened to local realtor Tawnie Misik at around 4 p.m. on Wednesday (Jan.31).
The message read: "we have your house address and if you don't cooperate with us, we're going to set a bomb in your house. You have eight days to cooperate or we'll come out for you and your family and if you report it to the police, more will arise, cooperate now, eight days left," as summed up by Misik.
The text had poor spelling and grammar and Misik proceeded to interact with the anonymous texter.
"I had to ask several times what they were even demanding," she noted.
The texter wanted $50,000.
Reportedly, several realtors from Royal LePage received the same message.
Misik reported the incident and it's now under investigation by the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
