This morning I got the first REALLY NASTY Bitcoin extortion email I've had!

I forwarded it to'NFIBPhishing@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk' with these comments
  • The Password quoted in the mail was changed some months ago, and the site in question (*****) is not one I ever used for “social contacts”
  • All my (many!) accounts have different passwords.
  • I have a Facebook account, but that was not/never has been my Facebook password, and I have never used Facebook Messenger
  • To the best of my knowledge, I’ve not visited mature content sites in (at least!!!) the last ten-15 years except very occasionally by accident and if I did I then immediately left those sites.:rolleyes:
Also: the email is timed as Sent on 09 October at 23.00, but it arrived in my Inbox at around 08.57 this morning (10th Oct) so it looks like it would nominally have been sent from somewhere in a timezone about 8-9hrs behind the UK.

It came nominally from a "Chrystal Satta" with an @outlook.com address, and it read (the quoted password having been replaced by ****, and part of the Bitcoin account number is also redacted) as follows:
"
I‌ do‌ kno‌w ******** o‌n‌e o‌f yo‌ur pass wo‌rds. Lets g‌et dir‌ectly to‌ purpo‌se. No‌ o‌ne ha‌s pai‌d m‌e to‌ ch‌eck a‌bo‌ut yo‌u. Yo‌u ma‌y not kno‌w m‌e a‌nd yo‌u'r‌e pro‌ba‌bly wo‌nd‌eri‌ng why yo‌u a‌r‌e g‌etti‌ng thi‌s ‌e-ma‌i‌l?

Whew, that is nasty. I hope that they get caught.

As an aside, and not because I am guilty of anything, I have my camera covered with a piece of tape. I did this many years ago and am not alone. I believe that Mark Zuckerbereg, for instance, has done just that.

For those who don't (or aren't old enough to!) remember, that's the catchphrase that Hylda Baker used in the comedy series "Nearest and Dearest" in the 1970's/80s:D
IIRC I think it goes back further than that to when she was on stage in variety, together with 'It's quarter past..... I must gt a little hand on this watch!'

@pgh13
Probably quite right - but I figured that a relevant link might be more "insightful" than just quoting that amusing phrase - "I know, y'know! ":-rofl2
PS: no Bitcoins here AFAIK, and so not "paid" that ******!

Not a chance - even if I could remember the last time or what I looked at! :-lmao

PS: Don't even need to visit "naughty" sites to "get an eyeful" - just take a look at the photo-section of any "Craigs List" pages! :-rofl2

Just got another one almost identical to that reported in post #285, and including the same text except for the BitCoin account link - but this time from an "@inbox.ru" account!

Got 5 of these to an old email address today. Bits redacted for obvious reasons :D

I greet you!

I have bad news for you.
11/08/2018 - on this day I hacked your operating system and got full access to your account xxxxxxxxxxxxxx


It is useless to change the password, my malware intercepts it every time.

How it was:
In the software of the router to which you were connected that day, there was a vulnerability.
I first hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it.
When you entered in the Internet, my trojan was installed on the operating system of your device.


After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).

A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a small amount of money to unlock.
But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and came to the big delight of your favorite resources.
I'm talking about sites for adults.


I want to say - you are a big pervert. You have unbridled fantasy!

After that, an idea came to my mind.
I made a screenshot of the intimate website where you have fun (you know what it is about, right?).
After that, I took off your joys (using the camera of your device). It turned out beautifully, do not hesitate.


I am strongly belive that you would not like to show these pictures to your relatives, friends or colleagues.
I think $867 is a very small amount for my silence.
Besides, I spent a lot of time on you!


I accept money only in Bitcoins.
My BTC wallet: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


You do not know how to replenish a Bitcoin wallet?
In any search engine write "how to send money to btc wallet".
It's easier than send money to a credit card!


For payment you have a little more than two days (exactly 50 hours).
Do not worry, the timer will start at the moment when you open this letter. Yes, yes .. it has already started!


After payment, my virus and dirty photos with you self-destruct automatically.
Narrative, if I do not receive the specified amount from you, then your device will be blocked, and all your contacts will receive a photos with your "joys".


I want you to be prudent.
- Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data is already uploaded to a remote server)
- Do not try to contact me (this is not feasible, I sent you an email from your account)
- Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help either, since your data is already on a remote server.


P.S. I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment, as you are not my single victim.
This is a hacker code of honor.


From now on, I advise you to use good antiviruses and update them regularly (several times a day)!

Don't be mad at me, everyone has their own work.
Farewell.


:-rofl2 go right ahead bud. But first please tell me a technical description on how you have uploaded multi gigs of data on my 0.5meg upload bb without me noticing. Because it seems you have developed a way to move data around damn sight faster than Plusnet do.

And maybe if I pay him the requested 800 bucks he can go and enrol himself a college course in proper English :D
