Happy Friday! Here’s Another Extortion Phishing Email For You

I have yet another extortion phishing email that I would like to share with you. This particular one is not very sophisticated and not all that good. Which illustrates that the people behind it aren’t all that bright. But it may still fool someone into handing over their hard earned money to a low rent loser who doesn’t deserve it. So here it is. And a warning. This particular email may be a bit graphic for some:

THIS IS NOT A JOKE – I AM DEAD SERIOUS!

Hi perv,

The last time you visited a p0rnographic website with teens, you downloaded and installed software I developed.

My program has turned on your camera and recorded the process of your masturbation.

My software has also downloaded all your email contact lists and a list of your friends on Facebook.

I have both the ‘[NAME OF USER REDACTED].mp4’ with your masturbation as well as a file with all your contacts on my hard drive.  

You are very perverted!

If you want me to delete both the files and keep the secret, you must send me Bitcoin payment. I give you 72 hours for payment.

If you don’t know how to send Bitcoins, visit Google.

Send 2.000 USD to this Bitcoin address immediately:          

[BITCOIN ADDRESS REDACTED]

(copy and paste)

1 BTC = 3,580 USD right now, so send exactly 0.564038 BTC to the address provided above.

Do not try to cheat me!

As soon as you open this Email I will know you opened it.

 This Bitcoin address is linked to you only, so I will know if you sent the correct amount.

When you pay in full, I will remove the files and deactivate my program.

If you don’t send the payment, I will send your masturbation video to ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES from your contact list I hacked.

Here are the payment details again:

Send 0.564038 BTC to this Bitcoin address:

—————————————-

[BITCOIN ADDRESS REDACTED]

—————————————-

You саn visit police but nobody will help you. I know what I am doing.

I don’t live in your country and I know how to stay anonymous.

Don’t try to deceive me – I will know it immediately – my spy ware is recording all the websites you visit and all keys you press. If you do – I will send this ugly recording to everyone you know, including your family.

Don’t cheat me! Don’t forget the shame and if you ignore this message your life will be ruined.

I am waiting for your Bitcoin payment.

If you need more time to buy and send 0.564038 BTC, open your notepad and write ’48h plz’. I will consider giving you another 48 hours before I release the vid       

Anonymous Hacker

So, they’re trying to use the same playbook of using shame and embarrassment to get you to pay up. The low rent losers behind this email don’t offer up any proof and it looks like a form letter of sorts as the name of the video is the user name of the email address that this email was sent to. The only thing different is that they use explicit language and introduce the implication that the victim was looking at teen porn which is illegal in most places on Earth, or at least frowned upon. But beyond all of this, this is yet another scam email that you should delete should you receive it. And a message for the low rent losers behind this scam email. Your email is a #fail and nobody will fall for it. Especially after this post starts to circulate.

UPDATE: These same scumbags sent the reader in question a second email. Click here to see it.
