Reply To: Porn Blackmail Email Extortion Scam
After reading the posts above I feel a little better since mine sounds like some of the most recent ones, but getting an email from a complete stranger this morning with my name and password (a password that I use for some things) in the subject is very scary. Is that normal?
Here’s what mine said:

Subject:[insert my first name] – [insert a pw I use sometimes]
It seems that, [insert a pw I use sometimes], is your pass word. You may not know me and you’re most likely wondering why you are getting this e-mail, right?
actually, I actually placed a malware on the adult videos (porn material) web-site and guess what, you visited this web site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your internet browser initiated operating as a RDP (Remote Desktop) that has a keylogger which gave me access to your display and also cam. after that, my software obtained your complete contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, and email.
What exactly did I do?
I made a double-screen video. First part shows the video you were watching (you’ve got a good taste hahah), and next part displays the recording of your webcam.
exactly what should you do?
Well, in my opinion, $2900 is a reasonable price tag for our little secret. You’ll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).

(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)
You now have one day to make the payment. (I have a unique pixel in this email message, and now I know that you have read through this e-mail). If I do not get the BitCoins, I definitely will send out your video to all of your contacts including family members, colleagues, etc. However, if I receive the payment, I’ll destroy the video immidiately. If you need proof, reply with “Yes!” and I will certainly send out your video to your 7 contacts. This is a non-negotiable offer, thus please don’t waste my personal time and yours by responding to this e-mail.
