Funny spam email I got

So I got this email at the end of November and I can’t… For context, I use my own domain in my email address, which broke this idea completely xD

Here it goes:

Expand to see the email.

Greetings!

I have got two not really pleasant news for you.
I have been monitoring your internet activities for some time by now.

The only person to blame in this situation is you, since you are a big fan of adult websites and also have got an uncontrollable desire to indulge yourself with another orgasm.
Simply speaking, all your porn websites search requests have become a key to access your device.
The thing is that I work in a company that provides services related to security and performance of email providers, including [my domain name] as well.

During the pandemic outbreak a lot of providers have faced difficulties in maintaining a huge number of staff in their offices and so they have decided to use outsourcing instead.
While working remotely from home, I have got unlimited abilities to access the user databases.

I can easily decrypt passwords of users, access their chat history and online traffic with help of cookie-files.
I have decided to analyse users traffic related to adult websites and adult content.
I was truly shocked to discover that nearly 75% of users regularly access porn websites or participates in sex chats.

I have filtered out the worst perverts from the list. Yeah, you are one of them. Not everyone chooses to watch such hardcore videos…
Basically, I have infected your device with one of the best Trojan viruses in the market. It was relatively easy, since I have access to your email address ([my email address]).
It was sufficient to prepare one of your routine emails asking you to click the harmful link…

My spyware functions as a driver. Hence, I can fully control your device and have access to your microphone, camera, cursor and set of symbols.
Generally speaking, your device is some sort of my remote PC.
Since this spyware is driver-based, then I can constantly update its signatures, so that no antivirus can detect it.
While digging through your hard drive, I have saved your entire contact list, social media access, chat history and media files.

One week ago, I have montaged a videoclip, which shows you masturbating on one side of the screen and on the other side a porn video
that you were watching at that moment of time - recently this type of exotic stuff is really popular on the internet!
Don’t worry, I will need just a few mouse clicks in order to share this video with your entire contact list and upload it to some porn website, like Bigle.
I believe that you would not like this to happen, since a long holiday season is just about to start soon -
just imagine the number of silly jokes and loud laughter that would get provoked by your video all over the neighbourhood bars and pubs…

I am offering a simple and reasonable solution:
All you need to do is transfer an amount equivalent to $1750 (USA Dollars) to my bitcoin wallet and we both forget about this silly story forever.
All your data and this video will be deleted by me once and for all. You have my honest word!
You’ve got to agree, this amount is really insignificant. Just imagine how much time and resources I have spent to get this done…
If you don’t know how to operate the cryptocurrency - you can always search for assistance online. It is that simple.

Here is my bitcoin wallet (BTC): [REDACTED]

You have exactly 2 days (48 hours) from the moment of opening this email.
I can easily track when you have opened this email (my software will notify me about it). Once you complete the transaction - I will be able to see and confirm that.
Please, do not try replying me via this email - there is no point in that (I have generated the header of this email as well as return address).

Remember that there is no point to complain anywhere, since I cannot be found (Bitcoin system is anonymous and I am also using I2P network in order to access your device).
I have considered all the small details.
In case, if 48 hours after you have opened this email,
I still don’t receive the required amount of money, then your videoclip will be automatically sent to all your contact list and uploaded to public websites.

Good luck and please don’t hate me too much!

This is life! You are merely out of luck this time.
Who knows, maybe next time you will get lucky at something else…

So what are the two “bad newses” that they have? I only see the one. :smiley: And if you happened to have a US-based address, then the whole “there is no point to complain anywhere” trope fails because one can report it to the FBI Cybercrimes division. Wire fraud is a felony. :slight_smile:

That ending, though! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: “Good luck and please don’t hate me too much!” That’s next level.

Thanks for posting this. I needed a good laugh today!

I can report it to Europol in the EU I guess (my email is hosted in the EU). Especially that they gave me their BTC address lol, as if that can’t be tracked.

I bet scammers hate it when they come across other hackers who know all their silly tricks. :smiley:

I hope they’re using different btc addresses for each potential victim. Everything else would be bad opsec. I’d be interested in the address to take a looksie.
