Cybercriminals have started sending out Sextortion emails, therefore, recipients of sextortion emails like the one below, which claims they have viewed child porn and threatens to expose them if they do not send money or Bitcoins, are asked to delete them and should not send any money or Bitcoin. This is because the email is being sent by cybercriminals who are attempting to frighten and trick their potential victims into sending them money, or in other words, extort money from them. So, let us not be a victim in 2020.
A Sextortion Email 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.
