Please do not ignore this message, as it refers to your account and cloud storage.

We are a group of data storage hackers.

If you receive this message, we've already hack you.

We are software developers (Login And Backup or often called LAB Bot).

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Q: What is the LAB Bot?

A: LAB is an automated application made by Bot using a special API request; the API can download all the data or files that are related to your cloud storage and send it to our server automatically via hacked email access.

Q: Definitely, you'll think this is impossible!

A: Smartphones, Apple, Windows, etc. All have cloud storage data. Like Google with Gdrive, Microsoft with OneDrive, Apple with iCloud, and all cloud storage directly connected to an email account.

Q: Why should you care about LAB Bot?

A: Lab Bot is automatically configured and has a five day grace period. On the fifth day, Lab Bot will accomplish its final task.

I.e., share backup data downloaded to the darknet forum publicly or to e-mail correspondence, contacts, social network, co-worker. (You certainly didn't want everyone to see or know your private files (documents, nude photos, hot videos, or others).

Precisely what should you do?

To prevent all of this thing from happening, you need to send Bitcoin with the amount of 0.18472 Bitcoin - to my bitcoin wallet address. (if you didn't know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' on Google.)

BTC address:

Scan the QR code with your phone to get the address.

So, to stop the LAB Bot process, it's only in one way; "make payments through Bitcoin in the amount of 0.18472 Bitcoin". You have five days to make a payment, and the time will start when this message opened; LAB Bot will know if you've already read the letter because it uses e-mail trackers.

Amazon customers should always go directly to www.amazon.co.uk or www.amazon.com to view their order status or other account notifications. Instead of clicking on a link in an email which may go to a phishing website that steals personal and account information.
