Chinese software engineer
Got an email with this text (shortened to fit the textbox):
I'm the Chinese software engineer who hacked into your device OS.
I've been watching you for month now. The thing is, you've been infected with malware through the adult website you visited... I have downloaded all confidential information from your system and I got some more evidence.
Why didn't your antivirus detect any malware?
Answer: My malware uses a low-level device driver build-in your CPU and I update its signatures every 4 hours to keep your antivirus silent. I made a screen recording of you masturbating.
On one side of the screen is the video you're watching at the moment and on the other side is your satisfied face. With one click, I can send this video to all your contacts.
Do you want to prevent it?
I understand your concern. Especially since the video was quite vulgar, I can't imagine the embarrassment you will feel when your colleagues, friends and relatives see it.
If you need to erase all of your collected data just send $1000 USD to a wallet that was specially generated for your email address.
Yes, it's that simple! My script will detect the transaction to the wallet and will automatically delete all the dirt that was collected on you.
I will give you 48 hours to pay.
