Subject: Pending for payment.


Have you seen lately my e-mail to you from an account of yours?

Yeah, that merely confirms that I have gained a complete access to device of yours.

Within the past several months, I was observing you.

Are you still surprised how could that happen? Frankly speaking, malware has infected your devices and it's coming from an adult website, which you used to visit.

Although all this stuff may seem unfamiliar to you, but let me try to explain that to you.

With aid of Trojan Viruses, I managed to gain full access to any PC or other types of devices.

That merely means that I can watch you whenever I want via your screen just by activating your camera as well as microphone, while you don't even know about that.

Moreover, I have also received access to entire contacts list as well as full correspondence of yours.

You may be wondering, "However, my PC is protected by a legitimate antivirus, so how could that happen? Why couldn't I get any alerts?"

To be honest, the reply is quite straightforward: malware of mine utilizes drivers, which update the signatures on 4-hourly basis, which turns them to become untraceable, and hereby making your antivirus remain idle.

I have collected a video on the left screen where you enjoy ****, while the video on the right screen shows the video you were watching at that point of time.

Still puzzled how much damage could that cause? One mouse click is enough for me to share this video to your social networks, as well as e-mail contacts of yours.

In addition, I am also able to gain access to all e-mail correspondence as well as messengers used by you.

Below are simple steps required for you to undertake in order to avoid that from occurring - transfer $1550 in Bitcoin equivalent to my wallet

(if you don't know how to complete that, just open your browser and make a google search: "Buy Bitcoin").

My bitcoin wallet address (BTC Wallet) is: [bitcoin address]

Once the payment has been confirmed, I shall remove the video without delay, and that is end of story - afterwards you won't hear about me again for sure.

The time for you to perform the transaction is 2 days (48 hours).

After this e-mail is opened by you, I will get an automatic notice, which will start my timer.

Any effort to complain will not change anything at all, because this e-mail is simply untraceable, just like my bitcoin address.

I have been developing these plans for quite an extended period of time; so, don't expect any mistake from my side.

If, get to know that you tried to send this message to anyone else, I will distribute your video as described earlier.

The bitcoin blackmailers and sexploiation scammers have upped their game recently with a whole slew of blackmail that accuses the recipient of abusing minors, not just the typically "you watch p**e" messaging,. Emails now include a list of made-up/fake/fictitious *.mp4 videos pre-pended with a label that reflects the email address being scammed as though that's 'proof' of anything.

Text below of blacked out. To read drag-select the black blocks.


Subject: I know that you are a ****..

Message for: [scraped email address] I know that you are a ****.

I know about your interest in young children.

I also know that you like to watch pictures and videos of children.

Some time ago when you looked at **** videos, you downloaded a virus to your device.

This virus enabled me to connect from a distance and take over the full control over your device and your camera.

I also downloaded a contact list for your family and work colleagues.

I caught you several times how you watched pornographic videos with children, and I recorded the entire incident.

I have secured a copy of your webcam video with your face and body as well as your device screen capture.

I happen to be part of the hacker group Anonymous, and unlike you, I know how I can protect myself.

With such incriminating evidence of your **** fantasies, I am confident that I can **** your life.

I have 4 videos of you clearly **** while watching to videos of children:

Enquiries_1697978542.mp4 (112.8 MB)
Enquiries_1697280825.mp4 (64.2 MB)
Enquiries_1697264845.mp4 (99.0 MB)
Enquiries_1694165672.mp4 (123.1 MB)

If you want me to forget the whole thing, you have to pay me 5000 pounds.

I know that is a lot of money, but that's the price for my silence.

You only have 72 hours from the time of reading this message to do this.

If not, I will make these videos public and distribute them to your family, your colleagues and the police.

You have to pay via Bitcoin transfer. If you don't have enough bitcoins, research how to buy bitcoins, and transfer them to me.

You can use online exchanges such as Coinbase, Binance or other to buy bitcoin.

1 Bitcoin now costs exactly 27830 GBP.

Then send exactly 0.1798904 BTC to the address below.

Copy and paste (note the upper and lower case!).

Transfer 0.1798904 to: [bitcoin address]

Remember that you only have 72 hours to do this and you have to transfer the exact amount of 0.1798904 BTC (5000 GBP)!

If you send the Bitcoin transfer, I will forget the whole thing and remove the virus from your device and we will never see each other again.

But if you don't do it, I guarantee that your family and all your friends will be amazed by your fantasies..

Don't cheat ... I keep an eye on you!

You only have 72 hours from the time you received this message.

I will be notified when you read this message.

If you have problems to transfer or buy bitcoins, I may give you few more days and will contact you again, but I have to see that you are trying to buy btc to send me the money!

Because I have access to your devices and data, I know a lot about you and I know that you earn well.

So don't try to fool me because I know that you can afford to pay me!

I send the details for the Bitcoin transfer below.

You have to transfer the equivalent of 5000 GBP to BTC.

Transfer exactly 0.1798904 BTC to the Bitcoin address: [bitcoin address]

(Copy this address because the upper and lower case is important!)

I am waiting for your transfer ... you should better pay, otherwise everyone will find out about your deviations ..

/We do not forget. Expects us./

Hello there!

Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you.

Some time ago your device was infected with my private trojan, R.A.T (Remote Administration Tool), if you want to find out more about it simply use Google.

My trojan allowed me to access your files, accounts and your camera.

Check the sender of this email, I have sent it from your email account.

You truly enjoy checking out **** websites and watching dirty videos, while having a lot of **** fun.


After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces.

If you still doubt my serious intentions, it only takes couple mouse clicks to share the video of you with your friends, relatives, all email contacts, on social networks, the darknet and to publish all your files.

All you need is $1400 USD in Bitcoin (BTC) transfer to my account (Bitcoin equivalent based on exchange rate during your transfer).

After the transaction is successful, I will proceed to delete everything without delay.

Be sure, I keep my promises.

You can easily buy Bitcoin (BTC) here: [link removed], [link removed], or check for Bitcoin (BTC) ATM near you, or Google for other exchanger.

You can send the Bitcoin (BTC) directly to my wallet, or install the free software: Atomicwallet, or: Exodus wallet, then receive and send to mine.

My Bitcoin (BTC) address is: [bitcoin address]

Yes, that's how the address looks like, copy and paste my address, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE).

You are given not more than 2 days after you have opened this email.

As I got access to this email account, I will know if this email has already been read.

Everything will be carried out based on fairness.

An advice from me, regularly change all your passwords to your accounts and update your device with newest security patches.
