Fake 'I hacked your account' email

Last week I got this email from someone claiming to have hacked me. The thing is, they send it to a fake/throwaway hotmail.com email address I havn't used in years that they probably found on some spam list. The 'hacker' also doesn't specify what specific website they tracked me on - instead everything is general so it could apply to just about anyone that visits dirty websites..

Here is the email, If you get this or one similar, don't fall for it, it's fake ("yourmail replacing the actual email address)

January 11, 2019

Hi perv. I recorded you masturbating! I have captured 'youremail.mp4'!


Hi perv,
The last time you visited a p0rnographic website with teens,
you downloaded and installed software I developed.
My program has turned on your camera and recorded
the process of your masturbation.
My software has also downloaded all your email contact lists
and a list of your friends on Facebook.
I have both the 'yourmail.mp4' with your masturbation
as well as a file with all your contacts on my hard drive.
You are very perverted!

If you want me to delete both the files and keep the secret,
you must send me Bitcoin payment. I give you 72 hours for payment.

If you don't know how to send Bitcoins, visit Google.
Send 2.000 USD to this Bitcoin address immediately:
(copy and paste)
1 BTC = 3,580 USD right now, so send exactly 0.560682 BTC
to the address provided above.

Do not try to cheat me!
As soon as you open this Email I will know you opened it.

This Bitcoin address is linked to you only,
so I will know if you sent the correct amount.
When you pay in full, I will remove the files and deactivate my program.

If you don't send the payment, I will send your masturbation video
to ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES from your contact list I hacked.

Here are the payment details again:
Send 0.560682 BTC to this Bitcoin address:
You саn visit police but nobody will help you. I know what I am doing.
I don't live in your country and I know how to stay anonymous.

Don't try to deceive me - I will know it immediately - my spy ware is
recording all the websites you visit and all keys you press.
If you do - I will send this ugly recording to everyone you know,
including your family.

Don't cheat me! Don't forget the shame and if you ignore this message your
life will be ruined.

I am waiting for your Bitcoin payment.

If you need more time to buy and send 0.560682 BTC,
open your notepad and write '48h please if you do not mind'.
I will consider giving you another 48 hours before I release the vid.

Re: Fake 'I hacked your account' email

people don't believe in this, just didn't follow any link from unknown mail and didn't install any app from a bad webs. This is simple instruction.

Re: Fake 'I hacked your account' email

install the most popular mail service and you will not receive such message

I hacked your account scam

Funny.. According to stat's I've read, Gmail is the most popular email service, and that's what I use.. And yet, I've received two of these scam emails in the last few months.
Please check your facts before posting.

Re: I hacked your account scam

I have 3 Gmail accounts and didn's receive any scum message for all 5 years, you need to check your security settings

Re: Fake 'I hacked your account' email

Did you even read the post, or are you just retarded?
There is no mention of any links in the email, and this scam has nothing to do with malware..

Re: Fake 'I hacked your account' email

Why u bulling me?
If u stupid -u will receive scum message every day, if can't use email this is your problem.
I just want to help, u must be careful to post your email everywhere or just stopped visit adult services )))

Re: Fake 'I hacked your account' email

Gmail or not, there's always a chance of information leakage (for example, database was stolen from a source where you had an account - and here we go, you got a message). That's because I'm trying not to use my main or work e-mail at less important websites. Still - it's not dangerous. Just some trolls trying to make money the easy way. Just delete it and move on.

If you still worry about your privacy - you'd better go through your Facebook, Google, etc security settings and check all the apps and third-party sites that have access to your profile. Revoke everything you don’t recognize and don’t 100% trust and actually need.
