Fun one.

So this guy installed some malware on my computer and he has tons of pics and videos that he had a really hard time to gather, as I could imagine (yes, read the email below!) and if I don't pay him $350 he's going to email that data to all my contacts.

I wonder how many people receiving such threat will fall for it. Especially because sending screenshots is not going to make it more believable that it is indeed my computer that he took the footage from. There are literally billions of people with similar computers?!

Not only that, many people receive emails with stuff like that in them already and I don't think they read them much anyway. :-)

Oh well... nice attempt I suppose.

I certainly hope that if you received such that you did not send the $$$. Note also that the guy says he will delete all the content once I paid the $350. Why wouldn't he then ask for $1,000? After all, nothing forces him to delete anything at all. Frankly?!

Any type of locking like that would be the same thing. One intelligent thing to do is have backups of your data if you're worried it could happen to you (and it certainly could). So have backups and that way you'll be happy when such a bad thing happens to you. Note that having a backup means copies of all your files on several different computers or on different mediums (i.e. an external USB drive, on the cloud, etc.)

Be safe!

  i dont have good news for you

  I setup an big malware in a porn website (adult video content website) and you viewed the video (you know what im talking).

  While you were watching the videos my virus started to work as a R.D.P (remote desktop view) with a keylogger and i had full access to your screen and camera.

  My malvware also collected your contacts (from email, social network, etc...)

  After this i started to record your screen and your camera at the same time. So i created an double-screen video (half side your camera watching porn and half side your screen).

  As you might be thinking i had a lot of trouble doing all this.

  You might be worried at this point but dont be, its simple to fix all this mess, all you have to do is pay me U$350, this value is enough to keep our little secret safe.

  You will make my payment through Bitcoin (if you dont know how to buy Bitcoin search on google, its fast and easy, i recommend localbitcoins).

  The Bitcoin address you have to send the money is: 1KowtJ26v9MpS9xHwM5sSyD4Gqzyqyeqqo

  You only have 24 hours to send my money after reading this e-mail (i setup an special tracking pixel in this message and i will know when you read it).

  If i do not receive my Bitcoins i will send your double-screen video to all contacts that i collected from you (including friends, co-workers, family).

  If you are wise enough and send my money all the material will be deleted and you will not hear from me again.
