Hello! As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account. This means that I have full access to your Operating System. I've been watching you for a few months now. The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited. If you are not familiar with this, I will explain. Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device. This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it. I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence. Why your antivirus did not detect malware? Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent. I made a video showing how you masturbate in the left half of the screen,and in the right half you see the video that you watched. With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks. I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use. If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $950(USD) to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: 'Buy Bitcoin'). My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1JPC1YtkVL21q4Bf9mbAPundcNMx4q65ua After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again. I give you 48 hours to pay. I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter. Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address. I do not make any mistakes. If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed. Best regards!
If you recently got this email, you shouldn’t immediately think that:
a. your computer and its content is compromised
b. mailbox content is leaked
Remain calm and do the following:
1. Make sure you have an active up-to-date antivirus on your computer ( ESET, Bitdefender or McAfee ).
2. Contact your business email provider and report the spam message.
3. Report the Bitcoin address here: https://www.bitcoinabuse.com/reports/create.
