They’re at it again.
For the last wee while I have been getting loads of mails all saying the same thing
It seems that, (), 's your password. You might not know me and you are most likely wondering why you're getting this e mail, right? in fact, I setup a trojans on the adult videos (porno) web-site and you know what, you visited this web site to have fun (you know very well what I am talking about). When you were watching videos, your internet browser started off operating as a RDP (Remote Access) which gave me accessibility of your screen and web cam. after that, my computer software obtained all of your current contacts from your Messenger, Outlook, Facebook, as well as emails. What did I really do? I made a double-screen video clip. Very first part shows the recording you're watching (you have got a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your web cam. exactly what should you do? Well, in my opinion, $1100 is really a fair price for your little hidden secret. You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google). Bitcoin Address: 18ZKSpbvXLtu9x7RGEFTvvmqdmUx93xxNA (It's case sensitive, so copy and paste it) Important: You've got one day in order to make the payment. (I've a completely unique pixel within this e mail, and at this moment I know that you've read this email message). If I don't get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your videos to all of your contacts including family members, co-workers, and so forth. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy the recording immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will undoubtedly send your video recording to your 6 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said don't waste my personal time and yours by answering this message.
One thing that’s strange is there are subtle differences in the mails. In the example above they say “in fact, I setup a trojans” where in others they say “actually, I put in place a trojans” which is weird. Apart from some little anomalies they are all identical except for the BitCoin address which is always different.
Now the little brackets at the top [It seems that, (), ‘s your password] actually contained a password in the first few. It was a password I used many many years ago, and haven’t used in ages so obviously some ancient site has been hacked and they are assuming I use the same password on everything for the last fifteen or so years. Lately they haven’t even bothered with that which sort of removes the sting from their tail?
Naturally I have binned the lot and have been waiting expectantly for all the contacts on my Outlook Address Book [which I don’t have, by the way as I abandoned Outlook along with all the rest of the Microsoft junk ages ago] to mail me wanting to know what the story was. Their “one day in order to make the payment” has expired on all their mails but nothing has happened, which is disappointing to say the least.
There again there are so many flaws, loopholes and technical impossibilities [for a start, you can’t place a hidden pixel in a plain text email] that the whole scam is laughable.
But then there are those I suppose who may be technically challenged, who visit porn sites, have the camera on their laptop somehow placed under the keyboard [origami laptops?] and who have $1100 to throw away?
I can’t help but wonder what their next trick will be. “We have used your email address to place a hidden webcam on your bedroom ceiling”?
