Hello,

Ive recieved this email

Hello!

I think that you will not be very pleased with what you will see next.

The fact is that I hacked your device, now it is infected with a virus.
1/27/2022 12:06:42 PM
-On this day I hacked your operating system and gained full access to your account on PC ronal
.
I installed for you the Trojan virus, which is updated every few hours so that antivirus programs could not recognize it.

Thanks to access to your device in my hands, all the data from your devices, personal correspondence, photos, I also found something interesting. In the same way, I now have the opportunity to turn on/off the camera and microphone, make notes, while you do not know anything.
All this time all your contacts, correspondence for me is also visible. In general, you, so to speak, open book

Recently, a stupid thought came to me: to create a video clip in which you masturbate in one part of the screen, and in the other part of the porn session that you are at the moment, such videos are now at the peak of popularity!

What happened struck me!

Do not think that it will be difficult for me to distribute this video to everyone who knows you in a couple of minutes, as well as download the video on popular porn sites.
In addition, I found something interesting that I could publish.

I think you would like to prevent such a scenario. It will be very unpleasant, and you will remember this for a long time.

I suggest you avoid this script:

You send  1500 $ (US dollar) on my bitcoin wallet, and we both forget a stupid story, and I will forever delete all the data and videos, as well as delete the virus.

I think this is a very small amount for the work performed. I spent a lot of resources and time ...

My bitcoin_wallet (btc): bc1q32k8mjzxg7xpsdj223pr83z2j2vmlqjlm6ekh4

But if you do not know how to replenish such a wallet, use the Google search engine. There is nothing complicated in this.

For payment, I give you exactly two days (48 hours) since the opening of this letter.
As soon as you make a translation, I will see payment.

After this period, if I do not receive the indicated amount from you, the video and personal data will be immediately sent to everyone who knows you, you will be unpleasantly surprised by popularity.

All complaints do not matter, because it is impossible to find me. Formatting a disk or destruction of the device will not help, since your data is already on a remote server.
You are not the only one I watch. Therefore, I guarantee you that after payment we will forget each other.

Remember. I do not make mistakes, I do not advise you to joke with me, because I foresee everything, I have many opportunities.

Good luck and don't be angry!

Everyone has their own work, you are simply unlucky today.

It makes no sense to write in response - the sender address consists of arbitrary data.

P.S. In the future, I recommend safety rules on the Internet and not visit dubious sites.

Hwid your device 6F0FCFF77F84D2F4878DB99E236AAD4C

Also the email had a screenshot of my screen about 6 months ago

The same email was send to 3 of my friends and both parents. Should i be worried or is it just a scam.

Hi,

This is a scam, they may know your email address due to a recent data breach or probably because you gave it to a suspicious site or clicked on a phishing link from your email account. You can use Have I Been Pwned to find out if your email address is in a data breach.

I recommend you to update your password immediately - check also your other accounts and update their password if you think there are also at risk. Then, scan your computer with your antivirus - try also Malwarebytes - to make sure there is no malicious activity.

Tell your friends and parents to follow the same process. Once again, don't pay anything and delete the message, this is a scam. You can also report the scam to the FTC by going to this page. For more information about this type of scam, see this article.

Good luck.

Keep an eye on your account and computer for some time, but I think everything should be ok.

They just pretend to have videos of you or a screenshot of your computer screen. In truth, they have nothing. The so-called "proof" they may add to their message has been taken from the Internet. They only play on fear to make you pay.
