    Hey. It's me! Your future friend or enemy.
    You do not know me and think why I received this letter.
    I am sorry for my english, its not my native language.
    I learn more machine language - code.

    I hack phones and save information from them.
    I installed you a program with the functions of saving video and saving typing.

    When you visited the sites that interest me. (Sites containing porn.)
    My program recorded video from your screen with simultaneous connection to your camera.
    Saying thanks you to the phone manufacturers. This mode - Split Screen.

    Also, I saved a full backup of your phone, which contains all your files.
    History of correspondence, browser history and all telephone contacts during the hacking.
    Saying thanks you to the phone manufacturers. This mode - backup.

    At the moment the program is deactivated, and I am writing to you.

    You think what I should do. And, of course, you are furious.
    You have to make a choice.
    And remember. You make choice, what will happen next in your life.

    1. You can delete and ignore this email. When I return, I will see that the letter is being viewed.
    In this case, I will be able to share this personal record with your contacts.

    To track the reading of a message and the actions in it, I use the facebook pixel.
    Thanks to them. (Everything that is used for the authorities can help us.)
    More you can find out by the link.

    REMOVED

    2. You can write to the police, and they will investigate the hacked ip and hacked mail.
    In order to find me and protect you. I think time is too small for this, 48 hours before sending the files.
    In this case, I will be able to share this personal record with your contacts.
    The police will not save you from the ridicule of friends, colleagues and family. You want live with this?
    In my practice, there were cases when people had to change the whole way of life and place of residence.
    They wanted to pay, but it was too late. It's time, and the files have been sent.

    Everything that is downloaded on the Internet there and will remain forever.
    More information you can find on request in Google
    "Beyonce delete photo from internet"

    3. I want to get paid for the work done. We all want our work to be paid.
    (Even if it was not a wanted job.)
    I want 1000 USD. In Bitcoin
    My wallet BTC Address:

    1EkAVVDg8Rbwwa7j9DbvHQ7VmQ4FkBdEGT

    (CASE sensitive, copy and paste it carefully)

    If you have any questions, you can write me. Email will be available for short-term support.
    For payment after opening the letter 48 hours.

    Pay me and you make new choice.
    4. Receiving video only personally.
    5. Delete all the data.

    Time has begun.

    $$$#####****


    Just thought you should know...

    I would reply that if they are planning on publishing any clips of me involved in any sexual activity, then they should be aware that all my video clips are copyrighted and they should talk to my agent, on the plus sude my exclusive contract with Xhamster expires at the end of the year.

    It's not new. You've been watching porn for 15+years :D

    More seriously, these emails have been doing the rounds for quite a while now. Some of them display a password you have used in the past as evidence of their "power"

    Just ignore it. - Replying only lets them know they've found a valid email address.

    I had one of these come to work, and I'm professional enough to not view pornography at work... plus good luck getting web cam footage in a room with no web cams.

    Everyone in my office had a good laugh at the attempt to extort me, then we got on with out work.

    Alternatively you could send them a stern message warning them that they are in breach of GDPR.

    Another one to look out for especially in the lead up to Christmas, I’ve seen it circulating around some of our delivery clients

    Missed delivery cards being popped through the letterbox at Xmas time, with a phone number to call to arrange redelivery... except the number is a premium rate number which as soon as it connects, charges the caller £300+

    It is a scam and it has been done. My uncle had some virus on his laptop (it wasn't from a porn site) and he on his screen similar to the above and also a pic taken from his laptop cam, showing the sofa set in his lounge. It was deleted and laptop cleaned, all was fine afterwards. So, someone did gain access through his wifi and then into his PC.

    You could always tape up the camera lens which is something I have seriously considered this week as I have received several warnings from my security software advising that Windows are attempting access.

    I have googled it and turned something off in settings and the messages have gone.

    Like I said I did consider it but, in the end, though about what they would see which is me sitting at my desk squinting at the screen and either laughing or swearing depending on mood.

    Incidentally, they would also see my dog trying to jump into my lap when I have sworn at some email I have received in an attempt to cheer me up, he never fails to do so!

    Why on earth is it legal for any telephone call to cost that much. It's just playing into the hands of scammers. Such an easy one for the government to tackle if they only applied some common sense.

    Ah come on people, that tale has been doing the rounds for nearly 15 years now. All the more ironic because the actual scenario that spawned it was long since shut down, and the company responsible fined. There's been no notable recurrance since but this sh*t keeps on getting pedalled out year on year :rolleyes:

    It isn't, they don't. The scammers have got it easy, because people will blindly believe any old thing they read on the internet. I'm not sure it's the government that needs to apply common sense here?

    Except there were cases in 2018 about it, and Royal Mail have again set up an investigation ahead of this years season as per their own warnings, which will go out in due course

    I’ll also assume you meant ‘companies’, as there has never been just the ‘one’. Just because it doesn’t happen to you, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Just like I wouldn’t be silly enough to let gas men in with fake badges, unlike my widowed grandmother a few years back which resulted in money and jewellery being stolen under her nose

    I guess you’re another person who thinks contactless cards can’t be swiped in the safety of your pocket? :wallbash:

    Yesterday I was sent a £100 Amazon voucher out of the blue. I'll not be clicking on the "Accept" button :D
