Myrtle Beach lawyer Harry Pavilack has contacted local police and the FBI about an alleged hit man that he thinks has been sent here to kill him over a real estate debt that has been tied up in a complicated bankruptcy case.
Pavilack, who was forced into bankruptcy by a trio of banks in August, told police and The Sun News that he has been threatened over a nearly $80,000 debt that is tied to an out-of-state land deal. Pavilack declined to say who his businesspartners are in the land deal or where the property is located.
"It's scary to think there's somebody out there," Pavilack said. "You worry every time a car pulls up beside you or you go out in the morning to get your newspaper."
Pavilack contacted Myrtle Beach police about the threats late last month, telling an officer that "an Israeli hit man has been in town ... and is looking for him," according to a police report.
Pavilack told police a man in a black Mercedes with New York license plates has been driving by his home.
