Police in Karlstad are deciding whether to investigate the online bounty after the victim browsed the website on Friday evening and noticed the death threat.
“A report has been filed but there is no grounds to believe that the threat will be carried out,” said officer Tommy Lind to local newspaper Nya Wermlands-Tidningen.
“But this is more serious that many would think.”
Police believe the perpetrator is oblivious to the gravity of the crime which has been committed.
“It involves a younger person who probably doesn’t understand that the consequences of their actions are punishable,” Lind added.
A decision will be taken over the weekend as to whether police will take matters further in the case.
