"I am a Hacker Who Has Access to Your Operating System" Scam

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

Online users, please DO NOT follow the instructions in the "I am a Hacker Who Has Access to Your Operating System" emails like the one below, which claim your operating system has been hacked and you need to make payment to prevent your photos and videos from being exposed. The fake emails are being sent by cybercriminals who are attempting to frighten and trick their potential victims into making payments for some false claims.

It appears the cybercriminals got their potential victims old passwords from a hack or security breach of a few internet giants, which took place months ago. The cybercriminals then created the fake email (see below) and place the password in them to convince the recipients their claims are true.

But, the internet giants affected by the security breach have forced their users to change their passwords to prevent the cybercriminals from gaining access to their accounts. So, those old passwords will not help the cybercrooks.

Hi!

I am a hacker who has access to your operating system.

I also have full access to your account: At the time of hacking your account([email address]) had this password:

You can say: this is my, but old password!

Or: I can change my password at any time!

Of course! You will be right,

but the fact is that when you change the password, my malicious code every time saved a new one!

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

But 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 from e-mail and messangers.

Why your antivirus did not detect my 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 $747 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").

My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1BDePsBcraa7qgPZNcU2PK5QgbpBarRGZc

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.

And please do not try to answer me (the sender's address is automatically generated).

I do not make any mistakes!

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

Bye!
