But, the fake email messages were created by cybercriminals to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money, which the cybercriminals or scammers will claim that they need to do in order to receive their compensation.

    I was on Facebook and a woman sent me a friend request, I denyed it and a few moments later she was sending me emails trying to blackmail me. She is not from the United states and she keeps threatening to ruin my life if I don't pay her $100 but first it was $5600. What do I do?

    • January 19, 2017 at 4:53 AM by info

      You can ignore her. Threat tactics are being used by scammers to frighten their potential victims into sending them money, when they have realized that they cannot scam your potential victims.
