Subject: Don’t forget to pay the tax within 2 days!

Hi. How are you?

I know, it’s unpleasant to start the conversation with bad news, but I have no choice.
Few months ago, I have gained access to your devices that used by you for internet browsing.
Afterwards, I could track down all your internet activities.

Here is the history of how it could become possible:
At first, I purchased from hackers the access to multiple email accounts (nowadays, it is a really simple thing to do online).
As result, I could easily log in to your email account ([REDACTED]@bu.edu).

One week later, I installed Trojan virus in Operating Systems of all devices of yours, which you use to open email.
Frankly speaking, it was rather straightforward (since you were opening the links from your inbox emails).
Everything ingenious is quite simple. (0_o)!

My software enables me with access to all controllers inside devices of yours, like microphone, keyboard and video camera.
I could easily download to my servers all your private info, including the history of web browsing and photos.
I can effortlessly gain access to all your messengers, social networks accounts, emails, contact list as well as chat history.
Virus of mine constantly keeps refreshing its signatures (because it is driver-based), and as result remains unnoticed by your antivirus.

Hence, you can already guess why I stayed undetected all this while.

As I was gathering information about you, I couldn’t help but notice that you are also a true fan of adult-content websites.
You actually love visiting porn sites and browsing through kinky videos, while pleasuring yourself.
I could make a few dirty records with you in the main focus and montaged several videos.

If you are still uncertain regarding the seriousness of my intentions, it only requires several mouse clicks for me to forward your videos to all your relatives, as well as friends and colleagues.
I can also make those vids become accessible by public.
I honestly think that you do not really want that to happen, considering the peculiarity of videos you like to watch, (you obviously know what I mean) all that kinky content can become a reason of serious troubles for you.

However, we can still resolve this situation in the following manner:
Everything you are required to do is a single transfer of $1340 USD to my account (or amount equivalent to bitcoin depending on exchange rate at the moment of transfer), and once the transaction is complete, I will straight away remove all the dirty content exposing you.
After that, you can even forget that you have come across me. Moreover, I swear that all the harmful software will be removed from all devices of yours as well. Make no doubt that I will fulfill my part.

This is really a great deal that comes at a reasonable price, given that I have used quite a lot of energy to check your profile as well as traffic over an extended period of time.
If you have no idea about bitcoin purchase process – it can be straightforwardly done by getting all the necessary information online.

Here is my bitcoin wallet provided below: [REDACTED]

You should complete the abovementioned transfer within 48 hours (2 days) after opening this email.

The following list contains actions you should avoid attempting:
#Do not try replying my email (email in your inbox was generated by me alongside with return email address).
#Do not try calling police as well as other security forces. In addition, abstain from sharing this story with your friends.
After I find out (be sure, I can easily do that, given that I keep complete control of all your devices) – your kinky video will end up being available to public right away.
#Do not try searching for me – there is absolutely no reason to do that. Moreover, all transactions in cryptocurrency are always anonymous.
#Do not try reinstalling the OS on your devices or throwing them away. It is pointless as well, since all your videos have already been uploaded to remote servers.

The following list contains things you should not be worried about:
#That your money won’t reach my account.
– Rest assured, the transactions can be tracked, hence once the transaction is complete, I will know about it, because I continuously observe all your activities (my trojan virus allows me to control remotely your devices, same as TeamViewer). #That I still will share your kinky videos to public after you complete money transfer.
– Trust me, it’s pointless for me to continue troubling your life. If I really wanted, I would make it happen already!

Let’s make this deal in a fair manner!

Owh, one more thing…in future it is best that you don’t involve yourself in similar situations any longer!
One last advice from me – recurrently change all your passwords from all accounts.

My budget is $5/year.I need an entire /24 range (MUST BE CLEAN), not IPv6, only IPv4, and SMTP ports must be unblocked. I need to send out 50,000 emails/second, to spread the word about #lowendtalk on libera and how my wife hates me, and my ugly children.

We should meet up in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, but I’m too busy pirating shotacon and lolicon.

Scam Alert: Zelle Fraud Scam

The scam begins with a spoofed text message from the target’s bank warning about a suspicious Zelle transfer.

If a response is received, a phone call from a scammer, pretending to be from the bank, is triggered. The caller’s number will be spoofed so that it appears to be coming from the target’s bank.

The caller will “verify the identity” of the customer, asking for their online banking username, and then tells the customer to read back a passcode sent via text or email.

In reality, the scammer initiates a transaction — such as the “forgot password” feature on the financial institution’s site — which then generates the authentication passcode delivered to the target.

An important aspect of this scam is that the scammer never needs to know or phish the victim’s password. By sharing their username and reading back the one-time code sent to them via email, the victim is allowing the scammer to reset their online banking password.

Subject: Waiting for the payment.

Hello!

Have you recently noticed that I have e-mailed you from your account? Yes, this simply means that I have total access to your device.

For the last couple of months, I have been watching you.

Still wondering how is that possible? Well, you have been infected with malware originating from an adult website that you visited. You may not be familiar with this, but I will try explaining it to you.

With help of the Trojan Virus, I have complete access to a PC or any other device.

This simply means I can see you at any time I wish to on your screen by simply turning on your camera and microphone, without you even noticing it.

In addition, I have also got access to your contacts list and all your correspondence.

You may be asking yourself, “But my PC has an active antivirus, how is this even possible? Why didn’t I receive any notification?” Well, the answer is simple: my malware uses drivers, where I update the signatures every four hours, making it undetectable, and hence keeping your antivirus silent.

I have a video of you, and on the right screen – the video you were watching.

Wondering how bad could this get? With just a single click of my mouse, this video can be sent to all your social networks, and e-mail contacts.

I can also share access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.

All you have to do to prevent this from happening is – transfer bitcoins worth $1450 (USD) to my Bitcoin address (if you have no idea how to do this, you can open your browser and simply search: “Buy Bitcoin”).

My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: [REDACTED]

After receiving a confirmation of your payment, I will delete the video right away, and that’s it, you will never hear from me again.

You have 2 days (48 hours) to complete this transaction. Once you open this e-mail, I will receive a notification, and my timer will start ticking.

Any attempt to file a complaint will not result in anything, since this e-mail cannot be traced back, same as my bitcoin id. I have been working on this for a very long time by now; I do not give any chance for a mistake.

If, by any chance I find out that you have shared this message with anybody else, I will broadcast your video as mentioned above.

Subject: Important Updates

I am sorry to inform you that your device was compromised.

I’ll explain what led to all of this. I have used a Zero Day vulnerability with a special code to infect your device through a website. This is a complicated software that requires precise skills that I have. It works as a chain with specially crafted and unique code and that’s why this type of an attack can go undetected. You only need one not patched vulnerability to be infected, and unfortunately for you; it works that simple.

You were not targeted specifically, but just became one of the quite a few unlucky people who got hacked that day. All of this happened a few month ago. So I’ve had time to collect information on you.

I think you already know what is going to happen next. During that time, my software was quietly collecting information about your habits, websites that you visit, searches you do, texts you send. There is more to it, but I have listed a few reasons for you to understand how serious this is.

For you to clearly understand, my software controlled your camera and microphone as well and it was impossible for you to know about it. It was just about right timing for me to get you privacy violated.

I’ve been waiting enough and have decided that it;s time to put an end to this. So here is my offer. I need a consulting fee to delete the media content I have been collecting. Your privacy stays untouched, if I get paid. Otherwise, I will leak the most damaging content to your contacts and post it to a public tube for perverts to explore.

I understand how damaging this will be for you, and amount is not that big for you to keep your privacy. Please dont blame me; we all have different ways of making a living.

I have no intention of destroying your reputation or life, but only if I get paid. I don;t care about you personally, that’s why you can be sure that all files I have and software on your device will be deleted immediately after I receive the transfer. I only care about getting paid.

My modest consulting fee is 1650 US Dollars transferred in Bitcoin. Exchange rate at the time of the transfer. You need to send that amount to this wallet: [REDACTED]

The fee is non negotiable, to be transferred within 2 business days. We use Bitcoin to protect my identity.

Obviously do not try to ask for any help from anybody unless you want your privacy to be violated. I will monitor your every move until I get paid. If you keep your end of the agreement, you wont hear from me ever again.

Take care.

Subject: Commercial offer

Hi! Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you. Several months ago, I got access to the device you are using to browse the internet. Since that time, I have been monitoring your internet activity. Here is the proof I hacked this email. Your password at the time when I got access to your email: [REDACTED] Being a regular visitor of adult websites, I can confirm that it is you who is responsible for this. To keep it simple, the websites you visited provided me with access to your data. I’ve uploaded a Trojan horse on the driver basis that updates its signature several times per day, to make it impossible for antivirus to detect it. Additionally, it gives me access to your camera and microphone. Moreover, I have backed-up all the data, including photos, social media, chats and contacts. Just recently, I came up with an awesome idea to create the video where you [REDACTED] in one part of the screen, while the video was simultaneously playing on another screen. That was fun! Rest assured that I can easily send this video to all your contacts with a few clicks, and I assume that you would like to prevent this scenario. With that in mind, here is my proposal: Transfer the amount equivalent to 1700 USD to my Bitcoin wallet, and I will forget about the entire thing. I will also delete all data and videos permanently. In my opinion, this is a somewhat modest price for my work. You can figure out how to purchase Bitcoins using search engines like Google or Bing, seeing that it’s not very difficult. My Bitcoin wallet (BTC): [REDACTED] You have 48 hours to reply and you should also bear the following in mind: It makes no sense to reply me – the address has been generated automatically. It makes no sense to complain either, since the letter along with my Bitcoin wallet cannot be tracked. Everything has been orchestrated precisely. If I ever detect that you mentioned anything about this letter to anyone – the video will be immediately shared, and your contacts will be the first to receive it. Following that, the video will be posted on the web! P.S. The time will start once you open this letter. (This program has a built-in timer). Good luck and take it easy! It was just bad luck, next time please be careful.
