I was just going through my spam email folder. I found a blackmail letter. It had a lot innuendo and threats but no proof the only actual personal information it seemed to have was my email at the password that I use for a couple Ford forums. Has anyone else seen anything like this? I have noticed for the last month or two that I have been getting a lot of sexually-oriented spam email even in my regular folder. Kind of wondering if I should go what is the main threads and contact the moderators about the Forum integrity
Those blackmail letters are running rampant lately, I get at least one a day on the email I use to sign up for forums and newsletters and such. Best thing to do is ignore them, nobody can do anything about it and unless you're a moron with a guilty conscience they're harmless.
Hi, this account is hacked! It will be good idea to change your pswd right this moment!
You probably do not know anything about me and you are most likely surprised why you are receiving this letter, right?
I am ahacker who openedyour emailand OSa few months ago.
You should not make an attempt to get in touch with me or alternatively seek for me, it is definitely hopeless, considering that I sent you a letter from YOUR account that I've hacked.
I have installed malware soft on the adult vids (porn) website and suppose you have enjoyed this site to have fun (you know what I really mean).
While you have been keeping an eye on content, your browser started out to act as a RDP (Remote Control) with a keylogger that gave me authority to access your monitor and webcam.
Consequently, my programobtainedall information.
You have wrote passcodes on the online resources you visited, and I caught them.
Needless to say, it's possible to modify each of them, or have already changed them.
But it does not matter, my spyware renews needed data regularly.
And what did I do?
I generated a backup of your system. Of all files and contact lists.
I created a dual-screen videofile. The first screen demonstrates the clip you had been observing (you have an interesting preferences, wow...), and the 2nd part displays the video from your web camera.
What exactly do you have to do?
Good, in my view, 1000 USD is basically a fair amount of money for this little secret. You'll make the deposit by bitcoins (in case you don't recognize this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).
My bitcoin wallet address:
(It is cAsE sensitive, so just copy and paste it).
You will have 48 hours in order to make the payment. (I have an exclusive pixel to this letter, and from now I understand that you've read through this email).
To trackthe reading of a letterand the actionsinside it, I utilizea Facebook pixel. Thanks to them. (Everything thatcan be usedfor the authorities may helpus.)
If I do not get bitcoins, I will immediately transfer your recording to all your contacts, along with family members, colleagues, etc?
