Internet Blackmail

I just received an email attempting to blackmail me. The threat is they'll release a 'video' of me. But no such video exists. I don't use computers like that.

The irritating bit is that the password they quoted to me is one I used sometime ago, so somewhere along the line they've acquired this info. I don't use it now though, and obviously I'll now be changing all my passwords.

My question is, can these people be traced and or/prosecuted? Or is that just a lost cause. Ideally I'd like to perpetrate an act of violence on them - not something I'd normally think of, but justifiable in this case I think.

Also, for people who do use internet porn, this could be extremely worrying....


I am aware, ************, is your pass word.

I require your complete attention for the next Twenty-four hrs, or I may make sure you that you live out of guilt for the rest of your existence.

Hi, you don't know me personally. Yet I know all the things concerning you. Your present fb contact list, smartphone contacts along with all the virtual activity on your computer from past 131 days.

Including, your masturbation video, which brings me to the main reason why I 'm crafting this e mail to you.

Well the previous time you went to see the sexually graphic web sites, my spyware ended up being activated in your computer system which ended up logging a beautiful video clip of your masturbation act simply by activating your web cam.
(you got a seriously strange preference btw lmao)

I own the whole recording. If you think I 'm messing around, just reply proof and I will be forwarding the particular recording randomly to 7 people you recognize.

It might end up being your friend, co workers, boss, mother and father (I don't know! My software will randomly pick the contact details).

Would you be capable to gaze into anyone's eyes again after it? I doubt that...

Nonetheless, doesn't necessarily have to be that way.

I'm going to make you a one time, no negotiable offer.

Get USD 2000 in bitcoin and send it to the down below address:

12G6Qr3caxd3DQBF64Z*DsC2gVKaHADNfwL
[CASE-sensitive copy and paste it, and remove * from it]

(If you do not know how, google how to purchase bitcoin. Do not waste my precious time)

If you send out this 'donation' (let's call this that?). Immediately after that, I will vanish and never ever make contact with you again. I will eliminate everything I have in relation to you. You may very well carry on living your ordinary day to day life with no concern.

You've 1 day in order to do so. Your time will start as soon you go through this mail. I have an special code that will inform me once you go through this e-mail so don't attempt to act smart.

My wife has had 3 of these emails (exact same wording) over the past month from the same person, quoting a very old password.

I panicked, thinking I might have borrowed her laptop at some point

Had a couple of these about a year ago. Almost word for word as quoted above. Yes it was concerning they had a password that I had been known to use at some time, more so than any videos being posted as they donít exist.

These identical email get sent sent in their millions. I can't imagine the Police would have much time for them or ability to do much about them.

My wife said that each time she got one of these emails, they came from a different address. this meant that time she reported it as a phishing email and blocked it, it came from a different place.

I wouldn’t worry about it unless it turns out they sent the same mail to the golden Labrador.

Good shout. I reckon many of them will know how to get their hands on two grand. Email the bloke back and ask for a cut.

They buy your details online and then use it as a way to try and convince you that they have dirt on you etc.

Was on holiday 3/4 years ago and I got a call from my firms IT manager. They were very good. Had found a password I used on one of our programs on the Darkweb. The password was Palace orientated and the manager knew me so called and I changed a lot while I was away. A lot of scare mongers about but also some clever nasty bastards.

I did think about emailing back pleading with them to take less money, as a way of getting their identity and somehow exacting retribution legally or otherwise. But of course that would just be validating my own email address to them. I guess I could set up an email address solely for that purpose, but seems unlikely that they would fall for it.

I own the whole recording. If you think I 'm messing around, just reply proof and I will be forwarding the particular recording randomly to 7 people you recognize.

This is the best bit. Only talks about a single recording. So they have spyware that can remotely turn on your webcam???? Lol. Why not make multiple recordings/copies and build up the ammo.

Then the double threat if you ask for proof. Or in other words call their bluff.
So recording is 100% geniue but we gonna throw away the chance of a payday but sending
to just 7. Also, why do these email never enclose a screenshot???

Had one of these email about a year ago.
