Reply To: Ransom Email with Password Included
Mine gave my email user (the before-the-@ part) as well as an old password. It also claims to have an embedded tracking pixel, but looking at the message source, I don’t see one. These guys don’t seem that sophisticated, and it would provide a way to track them by seeing where that image stored.
This is your badluck. I know that XXXXXX is your password. More importantly, I’m aware about your secret and I have proof of this. You don’t know me and no one paid me to check out you.
It’s just your bad luck that I stumbled across your misadventures. Actually, I placed a malware on the adult vids (sex sites) and you visited this web site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching video clips, your web browser initiated operating as a Rdp (Remote desktop) having a key logger which gave me accessibility to your screen and also cam. Immediately after that, my software program obtained your complete contacts from your social networks, as well as mailbox.
After that I put in much more time than I should’ve digging into your life and created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you had been watching and 2nd part displays the video from your web cam (its you doing inappropriate things).
Honestly, I want to forget everything about you and allow you to get on with your daily life. And my goal is to give you two options which will accomplish this. Those two option is either to ignore this letter, or just pay me $8000. Let us explore these two options in more details.
Option 1 is to ignore this e mail. Let us see what is going to happen if you opt this path. I definitely will send out your video to your contacts including close relatives, co-workers, etc. It does not help you avoid the humiliation you and your family will feel when friends uncover your unpleasant videos from me.
Other Option is to send me $8000. We will name it my “privacy fee”. Now lets see what will happen if you opt this option. Your secret will remain your secret. I’ll delete the recording immediately. You continue on with your life that nothing ever occurred.
At this point you may be thinking, “Let me call cops”. Let me tell you, I’ve covered my steps to ensure that this e-mail cannot be linked back to me and yes it will not steer clear of the evidence from destroying your lifetime. I’m not looking to break your bank. I am just looking to get paid for my time I put into investigating you. Let’s assume you’ve decided to generate pretty much everything go away and pay me the confidentiality fee. You will make the payment by Bitcoins (if you don’t know how, type “how to buy bitcoins” in google search)
Amount to be sent: $8000
Send To This Bitcoin Address: 15YXtLN4zWPMxW86Zw6pEENkkwQ3rttMrZ
(It’s cASe sensitive, so you should copy and paste it)
Share with nobody what you will be transferring the bitcoin for or they might not provide it to you. The method to have bitcoin will take a short time so do not put it off.
I have a special pixel within this message, and now I know that you have read this email. You have 1 day to make the payment. If I do not get the BitCoin, I definitely will send your video recording to your entire contacts including family members, colleagues, and many others. You better come up with an excuse for friends and family before they find out. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I’ll erase the video and all other proofs immediately. It is a non negotiable one time offer, so please do not ruin my personal time and yours. Your time has started. You should know that my tracker is going to be sharing what action you are taking when you find yourself done reading this letter. Let me assure you that If you google anything suspicious I’ll share your videotape to your friends and family, coworkers before time ends.
