No, not an invitation to find God or Allah or another deity. This evil little threat comes courtesy of one of my clients.
These bitcoin scammers make their threats sound nasty. Always telling you they have webcam footage of you in compromising, sexual, circumstances. They don’t. They don’t even know who you are.
However, this IS a lesson in ensuring that you use robust passwords. You’ll notice that the (very old) password quoted was a simple word. Make sure all your passwords are strong – make them long, use numbers, upper & lower case letters and characters. Change them regularly.
Meanwhile, ignore this scammer who just wants your money – in bitcoin to ensure that they cannot be traced. There is no way that a bitcoin address can be tracked down, unlike a bank account or Paypal account.
Hello, I know your password: monday
Your computer was infected with my malware, RAT (Remote Administration Tool), your browser wasn’t updated / patched, in such case it’s enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more – Google: “Drive-by exploit”.
My malware gave me full access and control over your computer, meaning, I got access to all your accounts (see password above) and I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won’t even notice about it.
I collected all your private data and I RECORDED YOU (through your webcam) SATISFYING YOURSELF!
After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces.
I can send this video to all your contacts (email, social network), on the whole web, I can publish absolutly everything I found on your computer!
Only you can prevent me from doing this and you know that’s no joke – you got the proof above!
Transfer exactly 1200$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.
It’s a very good offer, compared to all that horrible shit that will happen if I publish everything!
You can easily buy bitcoin here: www.paxful.com , www.coingate.com , www.coinbase.com , or check for bitcoin ATM near you, or Google for other exchanger.
You can send the bitcoin directly to my address, or create your own wallet first here: www.login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/ , then receive and send to mine.
My bitcoin address is: 12EMaHiZG75ztkjUjuPZhQDcyW89qRJVuR
Copy and paste my address, it’s (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE)
I give you 3 days time pay.
As I got access to this email account, I will know if this email has already been read.
If you get this email multiple times, it’s to make sure that you read it, my mailer script is configured like this and after payment you can ignore it.
After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before.
