    Hi, i guess you dont know me and youエre asking yourself why you're receiving this email, right?

    I have put an malvware (virus) on a porn site (site with adult videos) and you accessed it to have some fun (you know what i mean)

    While you were watching the adult videos the system began to work as a RDP (Remote Desktop) with a keylogger and i had access to device screen and your camera.

    After that my malvware collected all your messengers, emails and social networks contacts.

    Then what did i do? i just created an double screen video (the first part is your screen record, the second part is the recording of your camera (yes, record of yourself while watching the porn video, i must admit you have a nice taste :) )

    I guess isnt good news, right?

    But dont worry, thereエs a way to fix all this mess. What you have to do is just pay me U$360,00, this is a fair value to keep our little secret. You will make this payment through Bitcoin (If you dont know how to do this just search google "how to buy bitcoin" or "localbitcoins, its pretty easy to buy it). My Bitcoin address is: 1CvDgUXDpc2Samht5v4MHKAcYtmYfz9HhD

    You have only 12 hours after reading this e-mail to send my payment (i have set a pixel in this message and i will know the date and time you read it).

    If you decide not to make my payment i will send your double-screen video to all your contacts (yes this includes co-workers, friends, family, etc...) and of course make the video public available on internet.

    If i receive my payment all the material will be destroyed and you will never hear from me again.

    If you dont believe and want proof just reply to this email with "PROOF" and i will send your video to 3 of your contacts.

    I guess there isnt good news

    I setup an very small malware in a porn website (adult videowebsite) and you viewed the videos (you know what im talking,).

    While you were watching the videos my malvware started to work as a RDP (remote desktop view) with a keylogger and i had access to your device screen and camera.

    My malvware also collected your contacts (from email, social network, etc...)

    After this i started to record your screen and your camera at the same time. So i created an double-screen video (half side your camera watching porn and half side your screen).

    As you might be thinking i had a lot of trouble doing all this.

    You might be worried at this point but dont be, its simple to fix all this mess, all you have to do is pay me U$350, this value is enough to keep our little secret safe.

    You will make my payment through Bitcoin (if you dont know how to buy Bitcoin search on google, its fast and easy, i recommend localbitcoins).

    The Bitcoin address you have to send the money is: 1EQ1SWvxFHfCq3ENjrCUN1KKwdK8XnrgkR

    You only have 24 hours to send my money after reading this e-mail (i setup an special tracking pixel in this message and i will know when you read it).

    If i do not receive my Bitcoins i will send your double-screen video to all contacts that i collected from you (including friends, co-workers, family).

    If you are wise enough and send my money all the material will be deleted and you will not hear from me again.

    It is possible that they are sending these emails out randomly and hoping some one answers. It is very possible that any malware connected to this email is not from watching any videos etc but will be picked up if anyone replies to this scammer.

    There seems to be lots of code in the return address. Instead of risking a reply that may reward you with Malware it would be smarter to do some anti virus scans and not to answer this scammer.

    Can they track these accounts down and find out who this is?

    The Bitcoin address you have to send the money is: 12L2XNbnPdaAoCCkn8q1HjfXMXVi5WaMYA

    It is possible to track many of the transactions via the blockchain.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/andygr...rugs-on-silk-roads-black-market/#6c15f70adf76

    Bitcoin's privacy properties are a kind of paradox: Every Bitcoin transaction that occurs in the entire payment network is recorded in the "blockchain," Bitcoin's decentralized mechanism for tracking who has what coins when, and preventing fraud and counterfeiting. But the transactions are recorded only as addresses, which aren't necessarily tied to anyone's identity--hence Bitcoin's use for anonymous and often illegal applications.

    But Meiklejohn and her colleagues at UCSD and George Mason University have found that a little snooping in the blockchain can often uncover who owns which of those Bitcoin addresses. In a paper they're presenting at the Internet Measurement Conference in Barcelona next month, they showed that they could use "clustering" methods taking advantage of clues in how bitcoins are typically aggregated or split up to identify thousands of addresses based on just a few test transactions they performed. With the data from just 344 of their own transactions, they were able to label the owners of more than a million Bitcoin addresses. And by making just four deposits and seven withdrawals into accounts held on Silk Road, Meiklejohn says the researchers identified 295,435 addresses as belonging to that drug market.

    I advise you to take this letter seriously, if you value your life and family, since this is not a joke or a scam.
    I have been thinking for a very long period of time whether it is worth writing this letter to you and decided that you have the right to know the truth. I'll try to be short. I received an order to kill you, because cause inconvenience to a particular man. I studied you for quite a long period oftime and made a decision to give you a second chance, despite the specifics of my job, the ethics of which do not allow me to do this, as this will destroy my reputation (more 9 years of impeccable executions). But since this is my last order i decided to break some rules.

    In general, let's Get down to business. I want you to pay the amount of 0.8 BTC. I accept btc. Details on how to send funds in this currency you can find in Google. Here are the details:

    12gzbLuWWQHHSvRkUfHUygSU9zRP8aAbKq

    When i'll receive funds I'll tell you the name of the man order came from, plus all the evidence i have. You will be able to use this information with the police. I wouldn't suggest you to contact the police, because you have a very little time (three days) and they simply will not have time to find out anything.
    Responding to this mail box doesn't make sense, because i use single use mailbox, because i care about my anonymity. I'll contact you as soon as i'll getfunds.
    I sincerely regret that you became my target.

    As this low life scammer is of very low intelligence maybe we can pay him with 'bitcoin coffee" ?
