another nasty mean scamming email

    Look at this stupid scam I had in my inbox today.

    I know it's complete garbage, I don't have a camera on my laptop, and being asexual, I don't have any reason to ever visit 'intimate content sites' ( no judgement on anyone who does)

    i can just imagine the upset and distress this sort of rubbish could cause some people


    Hello!

    My nickname in darknet is beniamino80.
    I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago,
    through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

    So, your password from dunnocks@live.co.uk is 8c154624507a2df8be886ac67d08a603a764fc1e

    Even if you changed the password after that - it does not matter, my virus intercepted all the caching data on your computer
    and automatically saved access for me.

    I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history.
    Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos.

    I was most struck by the intimate content sites that you occasionally visit.
    You have a very wild imagination, I tell you!

    During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching.
    Oh my god! You are so funny and excited!

    I think that you do not want all your contacts to get these files, right?
    If you are of the same opinion, then I think that $874 is quite a fair price to destroy the dirt I created.

    Send the above amount on my BTC wallet (bitcoin): 1EZS92K4xJbymDLwG4F7PNF5idPE62e9XY
    As soon as the above amount is received, I guarantee that the data will be deleted, I do not need it.

    Otherwise, these files and history of visiting sites will get all your contacts from your device.
    Also, I'll send to everyone your contact access to your email and access logs, I have carefully saved it!

    Since reading this letter you have 48 hours!
    After your reading this message, I'll receive an automatic notification that you have seen the letter.

    I hope I taught you a good lesson.
    Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don't enter your passwords anywhere!
    Good luck!

    I’ve received a similar email, although not as long winded. I did a bit of internet searching and apparently there is such a large percentage of the world who look at pawn on the internet, that a lot just pay up.

    Just write back and say you are an adult actor and would love the extra publicity.

    P.s - don’t open emails if you have the slightest suspicion! A decent anti-virus should protect most of the time, but there is always something new out there.

    My dad had a scam email about pawn purporting to be from 'The UK Police Force'.

    I had one yesterday allegedly from TV Licencing - is this where I should forward this email to as well? (Any that I get from HMRC I forward directly to their own phishing email address.)

    Really? I'm surprised. Even if the term wasn't used much years ago, there have been articles about it recently.

    I sort of always knew what it meant, by deconstructing the word itself.

    Furthermore, our Chinese scammer has got a lot of work to do, producing a video cassette copy and sending it to all your colleagues and friends (presumably from your contacts). And the scammer does that every time someone doesn't pay.

    I'm surprised the scammer has got time to do anything else.

    :) ancient Romans used to call us "the unmoved" which is pretty cool, and quite accurate.

    I'm certainly completely "unmoved" by anyone who thinks they can scare me by trying to convince me they have videoed me in any sort of clandestine sexual activity, but I am a bit angry and worried when I think of how such an email could possible affect someone else though, some youngster doing something so harmless, and normal and common, but private.

    Ah I don't get these... dunno why. There was that Nigerian Prince who emailed and I use to get stuff from Russian women who just wanted a nice man and could I send them money.

    I put them in touch with the Nigerian Prince. I'm sure they are very happy.

    But do be careful with any reply:

    “A phishing email is being circulated by fraudsters who are claiming to be from the City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau and in some versions the ‘Fraud Intelligence Unit’..”

    The City of London Police and the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau will never email you asking for you to disclose personal information.
