    I keep getting these emails. I am not sure if you have seen this one yet. Maybe the date is just different

    Change your password immediately. Your account has been hacked.

    I greet you!

    I have bad news for you.
    27/08/2018 – on this day I hacked your operating system and got full access to your account
    On that day your account () password was:

    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 $985 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: 1LwibmKAKu4kt4SvRLYdUP3aW7vL3Y78zL

    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.

    These scams are definitely becoming very popular. A previous one also showed the last digits from your phone number.

    ‘Your account has been hacked’ scam tries to blackmail you for Bitcoin

    Question for people who received this email: did it ever contain a password that you actually used?

    For me this was the case, although certainly not for the mentioned account at the mentioned time. Of course I didn’t pay, but I am curious as to where they got this password.

    Yes it contained my real password. Have several messages that do starting from early October. Some of them also have my password as “tyg” and I think that is a mistake on their part
