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
