Scam letter I received and at least 82 others have reported on the bitcoin abuse database as of this writing.
I have to share bad news with you.
Approximately few months ago I have gained access to your devices, which you use for
After that, I have started tracking your internet activities.
Here is the sequence of events:
Some time ago I have purchased access to email accounts from hackers (nowadays, it is
quite simple to purchase such thing online).
Obviously, I have easily managed to log in to your email account (xxx.xxx).
One week later, I have already installed Trojan virus to Operating Systems of all the
devices that you use to access your email.
In fact, it was not really hard at all (since you were following the links from your
All ingenious is simple. =)
This software provides me with access to all the controllers of your devices (e.g., your
microphone, video camera and keyboard).
I have downloaded all your information, data, photos, web browsing history to my servers.
I have access to all your messengers, social networks, emails, chat history and contacts
My virus continuously refreshes the signatures (it is driver-based), and hence remains
invisible for antivirus software.
Likewise, I guess by now you understand why I have stayed undetected until this letter...
While gathering information about you, I have discovered that you are a big fan of adult
You really love visiting porn websites and watching exciting videos, while enduring an
enormous amount of pleasure.
Well, I have managed to record a number of your dirty scenes and montaged a few videos,
which show the way you masturbate and reach orgasms.
If you have doubts, I can make a few clicks of my mouse and all your videos will be
shared to your friends, colleagues and relatives.
I have also no issue at all to make them available for public access.
I guess, you really don't want that to happen, considering the specificity of the videos
you like to watch, (you perfectly know what I mean) it will cause a true catastrophe for
Let's settle it this way:
You transfer $1650 USD to me (in bitcoin equivalent according to the exchange rate at the
moment of funds transfer), and once the transfer is received, I will delete all this
dirty stuff right away.
After that we will forget about each other. I also promise to deactivate and delete all
the harmful software from your devices. Trust me, I keep my word.
This is a fair deal and the price is quite low, considering that I have been checking out
your profile and traffic for some time by now.
In case, if you don't know how to purchase and transfer the bitcoins - you can use any
modern search engine.

You have less than 48 hours from the moment you opened this email (precisely 2 days).
Things you need to avoid from doing:
*Do not reply me (I have created this email inside your inbox and generated the return
*Do not try to contact police and other security services. In addition, forget about
telling this to you friends. If I discover that (as you can see, it is really not so
hard, considering that I control all your systems) - your video will be shared to public
*Don't try to find me - it is absolutely pointless. All the cryptocurrency transactions
*Don't try to reinstall the OS on your devices or throw them away. It is pointless as
well, since all the videos have already been saved at remote servers.
Things you don't need to worry about:
*That I won't be able to receive your funds transfer.
- Don't worry, I will see it right away, once you complete the transfer, since I
continuously track all your activities (my trojan virus has got a remote-control feature,
something like TeamViewer).
*That I will share your videos anyway after you complete the funds transfer.
- Trust me, I have no point to continue creating troubles in your life. If I really
wanted that, I would do it long time ago!
Everything will be done in a fair manner!
One more thing... Don't get caught in similar kind of situations anymore in future!
My advice - keep changing all your passwords on a frequent basis
