Hello!

As you may have noticed, I sent this email from your email account (if you didn’t see, check the from Sender email ID.)

In other words, I have full access to your email account.

I infected you with a malware (RAT) / (Remote Administration Tool), a few months back when you visited an adult site, and since then, I have been observing your actions.

The malware gave me full access and control over your system, meaning, I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won’t even notice about it.

I have also access to all your contacts.
I made a video showing both you (through your webcam) and the video you were watching (on the screen) while statisfying yourself.
I can send this video to all your contacts (email, social network)!

You can prevent me from doing this!

To stop me, transfer exactly 2000$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.
I think it’s a very good price compared to the damage and hell it can bring into your life!
If you don’t know how to get bitcoin, Google – “How to buy Bitcoin”.
The wallet you can create here: www.login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/

My bitcoin adress is: 1BYamnmKJmDE5ftfi73FgpjWhFPBs7ojzJ

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video, and we will forget everything.
I give you 3 days to get the bitcoins.
Since I already have access to your system, I know when you read this email.
Don’t share this email with anyone, this should stay our little secret!
