The "Got You You Got Owned" threatening email asking for bitcoin below, which appears to have been sent from email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, is a fake being sent by scammers attempting to frighten and trick potential victims into sending them cryptocurrency, by claiming they have infected their computers with the RAT Remote Administration Tool malware and they know their password. Therefore, recipients are asked not to follow the instructions in the fake email and should delete it. Also, the phoney email was not sent from an intuit.com email account, it was spoofed, meaning, it was actually sent from another email account and made to appear as if it was sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. This helps to convince potential victims into believing the fake and scam email is legitimate.
The "You Got Owned" Email
From: Got You email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
I know your password!
I infected you with a malware (RAT)/(Remote Administration Tool), some time ago and since then, I have been observing your actions. The malware gave me full access and control over your system, meaning, I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it, yes such things exist, you can Google it!
I have also access to all your contacts, I collected everything private from you, pictures, videos, everything!
And I MADE A VIDEO SHOWING BOTH YOU (through your webcam) AND THE VIDEO YOU WERE WATCHING (on the screen) WHILE SATISFYING YOURSELF!
I can send this video to all your contacts (email, social network) and publish all your private stuff everywhere!
You can prevent me from doing this!
To stop me, transfer exactly: 400$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.
If you don't know how to get bitcoin, Google - "How to buy Bitcoin", it's very simple for example with credit card. The wallet you can create here: https://www.blockchain.com
My bitcoin address is: bc1qn8lf2w0v24uvk7x7epmmftuqyhtlkvf44ng6td
Copy and paste my address - it's (CASE-sensitive).
You know this all isn't a joke, you got the proof above!
I think it's a very good price compared to the damage and hell it can bring into your life!
After receiving the payment, I will delete everything from you and you can life your live in peace like before. I give you 3 days to get the bitcoins!
Don't share this email with anyone, this should stay our little secret!
The "Got You" email or "Got You" scam have been around for years. The aim of the scam is the same, scammers demand a ransom by claiming they have taken sensitive videos of their potential victims and will share it with the internet if they do not meet their demands. But, they do not have such videos.
