    Yesterday I received an email that had one of my old passwords in the header! That was interesting. Given the list of places where I used it, it was interesting because I hadn't logged on to any of them in over 4 years. Did someone get an old server from a vendor and crack the user/password list. At this point I don't know but the scammer is very real.

    The individual demanded $1900 in 24 hours or they would send video of me watching porn to my contact list. The closest to porn I have watched since college is deadpool, but you can photoshop anything so oh well.

    It is sad that we live in a place where we are afraid of our own shadow, that is our online shadow, even if it is fake.

    If you get an email like this, forward it to spam@uce.gov, mark as junk and delete it.

    Cheers

      I got the same one today from Annemarie Cherniack demanding $8000 in BTC or would release p**n to my contacts. The password was an old one that I found was still in use one some irregular shopping websites I had used.

        Guess they are lowering their extortion rates, mine only wanted $1000 BTC. Anyone living in their basement or contracted govt surveillance should consider the wunderbar KARMA created for themselves by making extortion demands.. not to mention the illegal spying/stealing/deception to name a just a few other activities.

    I receive about 10 spam emails a day, usually from “Jasmine” or “Sarah” saying, “Hey YOU, please stop sending me your pictures. :) Thanks,” or “All I need is a yes or no.”

    They are non-stop and I get really confused when I see them. I also get “Security Alert” saying that my account sends out suspicious emails and my access to the account will be suspended if I don’t respond within 24 hours.

    I always think of responding to the ridiculous emails, just to mess around with them, but I don’t want to receive more than I do.

      Receiving these same identical harrassing emails for MANY YEARS - some with password warning/alert, some from Jessica , Sarah or similiar very common English name. They also often claim to be a local person/neighbor or friend from the past.

      **** EMAILS ALMOST ALWAYS WANT A REPLY TO ITLGOPK.COM***

    Answer me ASAP Goodbye,"

    I have gotten several emails from the listed orion1148 with the diplay name changing: Jasmine ("plz stop sending me your photos"), Tiffny ("STOP. I don't want your pics"), and various other sundry attempts to get my attention. The interesting thing is there is not an embedded link, so the phish must for me to reply and then it goes from there. Glad they get filtered to Junk Mail. Yes, take care out there and always look at the underlying email address behind the name.

    Some of these come, purportedly, from Google; others, from various forums. The common theme has been the startdedicated.net source. The individual server name (orion1148 here) changes periodically, presumably to bypass simpler spam filtering.

    Hello, I'm Sue Ann from Pleasant Grove, Utah. I have seen emails from this "Orion" in my SPAM box and the email says it's from Google, but I knew right away it was a lie and was the job of these scammers. I'm glad I didn't respond. It's a shame that these people have nothing else better to do with their time than send out emails like this. I hope most of the public will be aware that these emails are not from Google and the scammers are just trying to get your information. Thank you, Sue.
