Stay away & close “Payment from your account.” email

Last updated: July 05 2021

If you’re getting emails from “hackers” who claim your computer is compromised, just delete them – most likely the information is false. Alternatively, you may reach local authorities or report it to the FBI at https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

How do you know it’s fake?

  • They don’t provide actual evidence of compromising screens or videos;
  • Scammer claims they gained access over your emails;
  • A 2-day deadline for the payment is often imposed – so you won’t have time to research on the matter; and
  • Bitcoin is a preferred payment method.
