Received the following email. The aforementioned bitcoin account is used for payment of a ramson, I would appreciate appropriate action being taken.
Subject: Your personal data has leaked due to suspected harmful activities.
I am a professional hacker and have successfully managed to hack your operating system.
Currently I have gained full access to your account.
In addition, I was secretly monitoring all your activities and watching you for several months.
The thing is your computer was infected with harmful spyware due to the fact that you had visited a website with porn content previously.
I have made a video compilation, which shows on the left side the scenes of you happily masturbating, while on the right side it demonstrates the video you were watching at that moment..ᵔ.ᵔ
All I need is just to share this video to all email addresses and messenger contacts of people you are in communication with on your device or PC.
Furthermore, I can also make public all your emails and chat history.
I believe you would definitely want to avoid this from happening.
Here is what you need to do - transfer the Bitcoin equivalent of 950 USD to my Bitcoin account (that is rather a simple process, which you can check out online in case if you don't know how to do that).
Below is my bitcoin account information (Bitcoin wallet): 1AsRkzQSorZAc66fdXof9NHTNJdU4T8nC8
Once the required amount is transferred to my account, I will proceed with deleting all those videos and disappear from your life once and for all.
Kindly ensure you complete the abovementioned transfer within 50 hours (2 days +).
I will receive a notification right after you open this email, hence the countdown will start.
Trust me, I am very careful, calculative and never make mistakes.
If I discover that you shared this message with others, I will straight away proceed with making your private videos public.
