Hello!

 

I'm a programmer who cracked your email account and device about half year ago.

You entered a password on one of the insecure site you visited, and I catched it.

Your password from  email address on moment of crack: password

 

Of course you can will change your password, or already made it.

But it doesn't matter, my rat software update it every time.

 

Please don't try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your email account.

 

Through your e-mail, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System.

I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources.

Also I installed a rat software on your device and long tome spying for you.

 

You are not my only victim, I usually lock devices and ask for a ransom.

But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you very often visit.

 

I am in shock of your reach fantasies! Wow! I've never seen anything like this!

I did not even know that SUCH content could be so exciting!

 

So, when you had fun on intime sites (you know what I mean!) I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device.

After that, I jointed them to the content of the currently viewed site.

 

Will be funny when I send these photos to your contacts! And if your relatives see it?

BUT I'm sure you don't want it. I definitely would not want to ...

 

I will not do this if you pay me a little amount.

I think $717 is a nice price for it!

 

I accept only Bitcoins.

My BTC wallet: 1QHEbZG8NQT6vYCC8pyHvteNcmJ78B3ak3

 

If you have difficulty with this - Ask Google "how to make a payment on a bitcoin wallet". It's easy.

After receiving the above amount, all your data will be immediately removed automatically.

My virus will also will be destroy itself from your operating system.

 

My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is looked, I will be know it!

 

You have 2 days (48 hours) for make a payment.

If this does not happen - all your contacts will get crazy shots with your dirty life!

And so that you do not obstruct me, your device will be locked (also after 48 hours)

 

Do not take this frivolously! This is the last warning!

Various security services or antiviruses won't help you for sure (I have already collected all your data).

 

Here are the recommendations of a professional:

Antiviruses do not help against modern malicious code. Just do not enter your passwords on unsafe sites!

 

I hope you will be prudent.

Bye.

if it wasn't that they had the password I wouldn't have taken any notice.

Standard Issue extortion email. Ignore it, they're just cherry picking a list of usernames and passwords stolen from other sites.

I get a few a day with various messages saying roughly the same thing.  We've spent a stupid amount of time at work telling people to ignore them and change their passwords.

I agree, change your password and ignore it

When sites like linkedin, Facebook and others got hacked, they use the data they've obtained for scams.

Including your password, leaked from one of these sites, in the email is just the new trick in the scammer's toolbox.

Previously it was include your address or postcode in the email to "show it's legitimate"

Ignore. Our work computers have had them. 

They don't have webcams. 

 

Also, the passwords are old.

As everyone else has mentioned, change any passwords linked with said account as a precaution but otherwise ignore it.

I think it was more the shock of seeing a password that I have used in the past plus I'm doing a lot of finance and HR work at home now. The bit about a webcam is total jackanory as I don't have one on my pc!
