Don’t ever be scared into paying blackmail if you get an email like the one below. They are mostly fake, even if they have your password. They just that one bit of information to scare you into thinking the rest is true. In my case, it was not. But even if it was I would not pay these idiots. That will only encourage them to do it to others.

Lets get right to purpose. You don’t know me and you’re probably wondering why you are getting this e mail? None has compensated me to investigate about you.
Let me tell you, I placed a software on the xxx vids (porno) site and guess what, you visited this web site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were viewing videos, your internet browser initiated working as a RDP that has a key logger which provided me access to your screen and also web camera. after that, my software collected every one of your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, and email . And then I created a double video. 1st part displays the video you were watching (you have a fine taste hahah), and 2nd part shows the view of your webcam, & its u.
You will have two alternatives. Why dont we review each one of these choices in particulars:
1st option is to dismiss this email. As a result, I am going to send out your actual video to all your your contacts and also consider regarding the awkwardness you feel. And definitely should you be in a romantic relationship, how it will affect?
Latter choice is to pay me $2000. Let us call it a donation. Consequently, I most certainly will instantly remove your video recording. You could go forward daily life like this never happened and you will not hear back again from me.
You will make the payment by Bitcoin (if you don’t know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google search engine).

Should you are thinking about going to the law enforcement officials, anyway, this email cannot be traced back to me. I have covered my steps. I am not trying to charge a fee so much, I just like to be compensated. I have a unique pixel in this e-mail, and right now I know that you have read this email message. You now have one day in order to make the payment. If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your video to all of your contacts including members of your family, co-workers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I receive the payment, I’ll destroy the video right away. This is the non:negotiable offer thus please do not waste mine time & yours by responding to this mail. If you want evidence, reply with Yea & I definitely will send your video recording to your 5 friends.
