A "I Know Your Password" Email Sextortion Scam

I do know [Password] is one of your pass words. Lets get right to point. No person has compensated me to check about you. You don't know me and you're probably wondering why you're getting this email?

in fact, i actually setup a malware on the X videos (adult porn) site and do you know what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what i mean). While you were viewing video clips, your browser started operating as a Remote Desktop that has a keylogger which provided me with accessibility to your screen and also web camera. after that, my software obtained your entire contacts from your Messenger, FB, and emailaccount. after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part displays the video you were watching (you've got a nice taste lol), and second part shows the recording of your cam, and its you.

You have got only 2 choices. We should understand each one of these possibilities in aspects:

First choice is to dismiss this email. Consequently, i most certainly will send out your videotape to every one of your contacts and then just imagine concerning the awkwardness that you receive. Not to mention should you be in an important relationship, exactly how it will eventually affect?

in the second place choice will be to give me $977. We will call it a donation. Consequently, i most certainly will instantly delete your videotape. You can go forward everyday life like this never happened and you never will hear back again from me.

You'll make the payment through Bi‌tco‌in (if you don't know this, search 'how to buy b‌itcoi‌n' in Google search engine).

[CaSe sensitive so copy and paste it]

if you have been thinking about going to the cops, good, this e-mail cannot be traced back to me. I have dealt with my moves. i am not looking to demand very much, i would like to be paid for. right now if i don't get the ‌bi‌tco‌in‌, i will definitely send your video to all of your contacts including relatives, co-workers, and so on.

Nevertheless, if i receive the payment, i will destroy the video right away. If you really want evidence, reply with Yes! then i will certainly send your video to your 14 friends. it's a nonnegotiable offer, and so please don't waste my time and yours by responding to this email message.

The cybercriminals may have your old password, but it doesn't mean that they have anything on you. It appears they may have gotten your password from the Yahoo or other internet hacks or data breaches that took place a few months or years ago. Yahoo and the companies who suffered the data breach have forced their users to change their passwords, so they should have nothing to worry about.

    to me

    I know *** is one of your password on day of hack..

    Lets get directly to the point.

    Not one person has paid me to check about you.

    You do not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email?

    in fact, I actually placed a malware on the adult vids (adult p**n) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean).

    When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam.

    immediately after that, my malware obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as email account.

    after that I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste omg), and 2nd part displays the recording of your cam, and its you.

    Best solution would be to pay me $1088.

    We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, I most certainly will without delay remove your video.

    My -BTC -address: 3Dh1rQNskAH1BfTxzAwFkN2MvLyYGf5ofT

    [case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it]

    You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me.

    You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).

    if you are planning on going to the law, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me, because it's hacked too.

    I have taken care of my actions. I am not looking to ask you for a lot, I simply want to be paid.

    if I do not receive the bitcoin;, I definitely will send out your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, co-workers, and so on.

    Nevertheless, if I do get paid, I will destroy the recording immediately.

    If you need proof, reply with Yeah then I will send out your video recording to your 8 friends.

    it's a nonnegotiable offer and thus please don't waste mine time & yours by replying to this message.

    I got this one:

    "I know, *j, is your pass word.

    I require your complete attention for the coming Twenty-four hrs, or I will certainly make sure you that you live out of embarrassment for the rest of your lifetime.

    Hello, you do not know me personally. But I know pretty much everything regarding you. Your entire facebook contact list, phone contacts as well as all the online activity in your computer from previous 155 days.

    Consisting of, your self pleasure video, which brings me to the main reason why I 'm crafting this specific mail to you.

    Well the last time you went to see the sexually graphic web sites, my spyware was activated in your pc which ended up documenting a lovely video of your self pleasure act simply by triggering your cam.

    (you got a exceptionally unusual taste by the way haha)

    I own the complete recording. If perhaps you feel I 'm fooling around, just reply proof and I will be forwarding the recording randomly to 5 people you recognize.

    It might be your friend, co workers, boss, mother and father (I don't know! My system will randomly choose the contact details).

    Will you be able to look into anyone's eyes again after it? I question it...

    But, doesn't necessarily need to be that route.

    I want to make you a one time, non negotiable offer.

    Purchase USD 2000 in bitcoin and send them on the down below address:

    1*DNiag94Qca6HVipiUvekX5bxsxs5c2wLv

    [case sensitive copy & paste it, and remove * from it]

    (If you don't know how, lookup how to buy bitcoin. Do not waste my valuable time)

    If you send this particular 'donation' (let's call this that?). After that, I will go away and never contact you again. I will delete everything I have got concerning you. You may very well carry on living your regular day to day lifestyle with zero fear.

    You've got 24 hours to do so. Your time will begin as soon you read through this email. I have an special code that will tell me as soon as you go through this e mail therefore do not try to play smart."

    "From: YOU'VE BEEN HACKED

    Date: Sun, Apr 12, 2020 4:56 PM

    To: hacked - 873;

    Subject:High Danger

    Hello!

    I am a hacker who has access to your operating system. I also have full access to your account.

    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.

    If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $ 00 to my BTC address.

    You do not know how to buy? Search to Google : Buy BTC

    My BTC address (BTC Wallet) is:

    bc1qewpl4qv9zh2nm9tnzrhwfd4y0j0yfgvgg9spwk

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

    I give you 0 hours (more than days) 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 BTC address.

    I do not make any mistakes.

    Bye!"

    I received this scam.
