A Sample of a Bitcoin Sextortion Email Scam

was under attack! Change your access data!

Hello!

As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account.

This means that I have full access to your account.

I've been watching you for a few months now.

The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.

If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.

Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device.

This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.

I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence.

Why your antivirus did not detect malware?

Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.

I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.

With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks. I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.

If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $526 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").

My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1BPUUNghhuwQjDDvFd3TnJz2ato5dyDLr8

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again.

I give you 48 hours to pay.

I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.

Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address.

I do not make any mistakes.

If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.

Best wishes!

    Hi!

    I know that: - is your password!

    I infected you with my private malware, RAT, (Remote Administration Tool) some time ago.

    The malware gave me full access and control over your computer, meaning, I got access to all your accounts (see password above) and I can see everything on your screen, even turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it.

    I made a video showing both you (through your webcam) and the video you were watching (on the screen) while statisfying yourself!

    I can send this video to all your contacts (email, social network)!

    I can publish absolutly everything I found on your computer!

    You can prevent me from doing this!

    To stop me, transfer exactly 1000$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.

    If you don't know how to get bitcoin, Google - "How to buy Bitcoin".

    The wallet you can create here: www.login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/

    My bitcoin adress is: 13i31QoZKzo4DkB7ewHvFuHN5hDnztfRUe

    Copy and paste my adress, it's (cAsE-sensetive)

    After receiving the payment, I will delete the video, and we will forget everything.

    I give you 4 days to get the bitcoins.

    "Your account was under attack! Change your access data!

    Hello!

    I'm a programmer who cracked your email account and device about half year ago.

    You entered a password on one of the insecure site you visited, and I catched it.

    Of course you can will change your password, or already made it.

    But it doesn't matter, my rat software update it every time.

    Please don't try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your email account.

    Through your e-mail, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System.

    I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources.

    Also I installed a rat software on your device and long tome spying for you.

    You are not my only victim, I usually lock devices and ask for a ransom.

    But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you very often visit.

    I am in shock of your reach fantasies! Wow! I've never seen anything like this!

    I did not even know that SUCH content could be so exciting!

    So, when you had fun on intime sites (you know what I mean!)

    I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device.

    After that, I jointed them to the content of the currently viewed site.

    Will be funny when I send these photos to your contacts! And if your relatives see it?

    BUT I'm sure you don't want it. I definitely would not want to ...

    I will not do this if you pay me a little amount.

    I think $736 is a nice price for it!

    I accept only Bitcoins.

    My BTC wallet: 1EVe67RXBA28s14cnnsVv1WkxhtoXMjCTy

    If you have difficulty with this - Ask Google "how to make a payment on a bitcoin wallet". It's easy.

    After receiving the above amount, all your data will be immediately removed automatically.

    My virus will also will be destroy itself from your operating system.

    My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is looked, I will be know it!

    You have 2 days (48 hours) for make a payment.

    If this does not happen - all your contacts will get crazy shots with your dirty life!

    And so that you do not obstruct me, your device will be locked (also after 48 hours)

    Do not take this frivolously! This is the last warning!

    Various security services or antiviruses won't help you for sure (I have already collected all your data).

    Here are the recommendations of a professional:

    Antiviruses do not help against modern malicious code. Just do not enter your passwords on unsafe sites!

    I hope you will be prudent.

    Bye."

    O.K. - It's great to know that yet another internet application/ tool/ has been hacked. And since the majority of people have no concept of BitCoin, how does this help?

    I was just ht with a shakedown threat myself.

    These idiots/nerds do not know that those of us in IT for over 30 years will find and expose them.

    The idiot who targeted me wanted me to pay BitCoin at:

    1NJ2JS3F8sabD66BAmg4HScXjARcGjKNya

    These threats need to be reported to Law Enforcement because people less informed will fall for this crap.

    I will only say that I worked for GTE/Verizon for over 36 years and we do NOT take kindly to criminals using OUR network; YOUR network to defraud and scare and rip-off innocent citizens!

    This has to stop and it begins with you - pick up a phone, call the LAPD get it on a log - recorded - and the more we do it the more they will notice.

    It is a real shame that what DARPA and major universities envisioned as saving history and so on, became a dumbed-down internet where any idiot can post anything and be believed.

When you were viewing videos, your internet browser started out operating as a RDP that has a keylogger which provided me accessibility to your display screen as well as web cam. Right after that, my software program obtained your complete contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, and e-mail . after that i created a video. 1st part displays the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste : )), and 2nd part shows the view of your webcam, & its you.

    Hello Frank Jung!

    Please read the following message very carefully.

    About two months ago we have infected your system with a Web Scripting Virus through one of the updates that you have downloaded.

    The virus operates as an RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and allows us to actives your webcam every time you access any website with an adult content and records the screen. We have videos and photos of you pleasing yourself while browsing those sites. Also, we have obtained contact information of your friends/family from your email and Facebook page.

    To ensure that those videos are not sent to your friends/family, and not uploaded to your social network profiles, you would have to pay a settlement of $1000- via Bitcoin.

    Use this Bitcoin address to send your payment: 1P9QpUqRXx9VsD1MK4rWfgzwowHLWuzJ3R

    If you fail to meet these demands within the 48 hour period, videos of you will be distributed to your family members and friends.

    Once this email is read, we will be notified, and you will have 48 hours to make your payment.

    Once the payment is received, all the info collected from your system will be permanently deleted, and you will receive an email confirmation."

    "Security Notice. Someone have access to your system.

    Sat 1/26/2019 10:04 PM

    From: baeveasperov@gotmail.com

    Hello!

    I have bad news for you.

    09/10/2018 - on this day I hacked your OS and got full access to your account [domain name]

    On this day your account [domain name] has pa**word: fatta@1977

    So, you can change the pa**word, yes.. But my malware intercepts it every time.

    How I made it:

    In the software of the router, through which you went online, was a vulnerability.

    I just hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it.

    When you went online, my trojan was installed on the OS of your device.

    After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).

    A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a not big amount of btc to unlock.

    But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and I was shocked by what I saw!!!

    I'm talk you about sites for adults.

    I want to say - you are a BIG pervert. Your fantasy is shifted far away from the normal course!

    And I got an idea....

    I made a screenshot of the adult sites where you have fun (do you understand what it is about, huh?).

    After that, I made a screenshot of your joys (using the camera of your device) and glued them together.

    Turned out amazing! You are so spectacular!

    I'm know that you would not like to show these screenshots to your friends, relatives or colleagues.

    I think $716 is a very, very small amount for my silence.

    Besides, I have been spying on you for so long, having spent a lot of time!

    Pay ONLY in Bitcoins!

    My BTC wallet: 1MrUDSrZiqD3ijxsBUPt2SukoFy534orP2

    You do not know how to use bitcoins?

    Enter a query in any search engine: "how to replenish btc wallet".

    It's extremely easy

    For this payment I give you two days (48 hours).

    As soon as this letter is opened, the timer will work.

    After payment, my virus and dirty screenshots with your enjoys will be self-destruct automatically.

    If I do not receive from you the specified amount, then your device will be locked, and all your contacts will receive a screenshots with your "enjoys".

    I hope you understand your situation.

    - Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data, files and screenshots is already uploaded to a remote server)

    - Do not try to contact me (you yourself will see that this is impossible, the sender address is automatically generated)

    - Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help, since your data is already on a remote server.

    P.S. You are not my single victim. so, I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment!

    This is the word of honor hacker

    I also ask you to regularly update your antiviruses in the future. This way you will no longer fall into a similar situation.

    Do not hold evil! I just do my job.

    Good luck."

    Can anyone use my own account to send me to my own account? that means he has attacked me and so he has access to all of my info. Yes? I got an email like this from my own account which scares me great... so my question is, is it right or just an attempt? Do I have to pay and will it stop then? Please help me.

      The email was spoofed, which makes it appears as if it was sent from your own email account, although it was sent from another email address. So, do not be fooled.

          Because I 'm afraid again and stupid about this kind of things, a next question: I use four email addresses (name@name.nl) the one I got this blackmail from is one I did't use for years.

          Is that a good or a bad thing? I hope you have a happy answer. (I guess you are a dutch comp., in that case you may reply in dutch) I 'm grateful!

    Here is another scam:

    -------- Original Message --------

    Subject: This account has been hacked! Change your password right now!

    Date: 12/31/2018 12:27 pm

    You may not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting

    this e mail, right?

    I'm a hacker who cracked your devices a few months ago.

    I sent you an email from YOUR hacked account.

    I setup a malware on the adult vids (porno) web-site and guess what,

    you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean).

    While you were watching videos, your internet browser started out

    functioning as a RDP (Remote Control) having a keylogger which gave me

    accessibility to your screen and web cam.

    after that, my software program obtained all of your contacts and

    files.

    You entered a passwords on the websites you visited, and I intercepted

    it.

    Of course you can will change it, or already changed it.

    But it doesn't matter, my malware updated it every time.

    What did I do?

    I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were

    watching (you've got a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the

    recording of your web cam.

    Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data is already

    uploaded to a remote server)

    – Do not try to contact with me

    – Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or

    destroying a device will not help either, since your data is already on

    a remote server.

    I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment, as you

    are not my single victim. This is a hacker code of honor.

    Don’t be mad at me, everyone has their own work.

    exactly what should you do?

    Well, in my opinion, $1000 (USD) is a fair price for our little secret.

    You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how

    to buy bitcoin" in Google).

    My Bitcoin wallet Address:

    1AyRZviUxoBaCU1pJM5m7C1V2LdhPYiRcB

    (It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)

    Important:

    You have 48 hour in order to make the payment. (I've a facebook pixel

    in this mail, and at this moment I know that you have read through this

    email message).

    To track the reading of a message and the actions in it, I use the

    facebook pixel.

    Thanks to them. (Everything that is used for the authorities can help

    us.)

    If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your video

    recording to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so

    on. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy the video

    immidiately.

    If you need evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will certainly send out

    your video recording to your 6 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer,

    that being said don't waste my personal time and yours by responding to

    this message.
