Email threats demanding money scam

A few weeks ago we posted about another Extortion Phishing scam. Our blog blew up with comments and calls from you all. So this one came through today and we thought we’d post and see who else is being Extortion phished:


You have set up my deleterious software ocasionally.

My maleficent software codifies all files with AES-256. After encryption this deleterious software may block your system without opportunity to rescue files. Reserve copy will lead to the blocking.

It\’s easy to guess its a ransomware.
If you wish to conserve your hardware and files send me 169 usd in btc(cryptocurrensy). I accept solely complete sum. After payment I am going to send you information which will support you destroy my crypto-locker.

This is my BTC address – 1AuFoV9kd6bPEzBXgj37gShoMDgGQUAuuS

You have twenty h after reading this text.

I am aware joffrey one of your pass. Lets get right to the purpose. You may not know me and you’re probably thinking why you’re getting this e-mail? No-one has compensated me to investigate you.

In fact, I actually placed a malware on the adult video clips (adult porn) site and there’s more, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were viewing video clips, your web browser started out operating as a Remote Desktop having a key logger which provided me accessibility to your display and webcam. after that, my software program obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, social networks, as well as e-mailaccount. After that I created a double video. First part shows the video you were viewing (you’ve got a nice taste lol . . .), and second part displays the recording of your web cam, yeah its u.

You actually have only 2 choices. Let us read these options in details:

Very first alternative is to neglect this email. As a result, I most certainly will send out your tape to every single one of your personal contacts and thus you can easily imagine concerning the shame you will see. Not to forget should you be in a loving relationship, precisely how it can affect?

Second solution should be to compensate me $7000. Let us think of it as a donation. As a result, I will straight away eliminate your video footage. You will keep on everyday life like this never took place and you will not hear back again from me.

You will make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search for “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).

BTC Address to send to: 1LMh5BN8v1eacg5HqRPz2k6ktRUpSN4u4V
[case-SENSITIVE, copy & paste it]

If you have been looking at going to the authorities, look, this message can not be traced back to me. I have taken care of my actions. I am not attempting to charge you a huge amount, I simply prefer to be paid. You now have one day in order to pay. I have a specific pixel in this e mail, and now I know that you have read this message. If I don’t get the BitCoins, I will, no doubt send your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, colleagues, etc. However, if I receive the payment, I will erase the video immediately. If you want to have evidence, reply Yup then I will send out your video recording to your 10 friends. This is the non-negotiable offer, thus don’t waste mine time and yours by responding to this email message.=

I have just got one of these saying that I was watching porn (?) and pleasuring myself (?) Disturbing thing is : it was sent from one of my e-mail addresses and the password was included. What do I do
– I’m not giving him money – I don’t know a thing about bitcoin to start with.
