11NT1KhH3aXsRw4LS6PFFrT5fRkdZFmne Bitcoin Wallet Scams
Numerous email scams currently use the 11NT1KhH3aXsRw4LS6PFFrT5fRkdZFmne Bitcoin wallet as a way to maintain anonymous exchanges with victims. Scams associated with the Bitcoin wallet, or BTC wallet, are typically known as sextortion email scams where an email scammer sends a victim a bogus email message in which the scammer claims to be a hacker who hacked the victim’s computing device and recorded them through their device’s camera while they were watching adult videos. The email message then insists that the recipients of the bogus email message pay Bitcoin to avoid having the alleged video sent to their contacts including their friends, family, and colleagues.
To make the scam seem believable, the email scammer may claim to know the past or current password to the victim’s email account and may include the information in the email message.
I know your password for this account [
(Email address)]: ( Password)
Although sextortion scams like this may seem like a concern they do not pose a real security threat. However, receiving the email message could be an indication that your information was leaked online, possibly after a third-party data breach occurred. Your information including your email address, password, name, phone number, address, and more may have been leaked online and obtained by a scammer on the dark web, then used in scams like this.
There isn’t much you can do to prevent a data breach from happening to a third-party business such as Adobe, Facebook, Experian, and so on, but you can change your password and follow a few online safety practices to ensure better security and privacy:
- Don’t reuse passwords. Create unique passwords for all of your accounts.
- Use special characters such as !@#$& to make your passwords harder for people to crack.
- If you have trouble remembering passwords, use a password manager such as 1Password, LastPass, or Roboform.
- Use multi-factor authentication (MFA) such as two-factor authentication (2FA) whenever possible.
- Use a secure email service that provides end-to-end encryption such as Tutanota or ProtonMail.
- Use Antivirus software such as Microsoft’s built-in Windows Defender Antivirus that is free and better than a lot of Antivirus programs on the market, especially when combined with Malwarebytes.

Your account has been hacked! You need to unlock.
Hi, dear user of
We have installed one RAT software into you device
For this moment your email account is hacked too.
I know your password for this account :
Changed your password? You’re doing great!
But my software recognizes every such action. I’m updating passwords!
I’m always one step ahead….
So… I have downloaded all confidential information from your system and I got some more evidence.
The most interesting moment that I have discovered are videos records where you masturbating.
I posted EternalBlue Exploit modification on porn site, and then you installed my malicious code (trojan) on your operation system.
When you clicked the button Play on porn video, at that moment my trojan was downloaded to your device.
After installation, your front camera shoots video every time you masturbate, in addition, the software is synchronized with the video you choose.
For the moment, the software has harvrested all your contact information from social networks and email addresses.
If you need to erase all of your collected data, send me $600 in BTC (crypto currency).
This is my Bitcoin wallet: 11NT1KhH3aXsRw4LS6PFFrT5fRkdZFmne
You have 48 hours after reading this letter.
After your transaction I will erase all your data.
Otherwise, I will send video with your pranks to all your colleagues and friends!!!
P.S. I’m asking you – not to answer this letter because the sender’s address is fake, just to keep me incognito.
And henceforth be more careful!
