Subject: WARNING I’m sorry, pay or you’ll regret

I greet you.

I have to share bad news with you. Approximately a few months ago, I gained access to your devices, which you use for internet browsing. After that, I have started tracking your internet activities. Here is the sequence of events:

Some time ago, I purchased access to email accounts from hackers (nowadays, it is quite simple to buy it online). I have easily managed to log in to your email account. One week later, I have already installed virus on devices you use to access your email. It was not hard at all. I recorded you (through your cam) satisfying yourself. I also have no issue at all with making them available for public access (leaked and exposed all data). I guess you don’t want that to happen.

Let’s settle it this way:

You transfer $750 USD to me and once the transfer is received, I will delete all this dirty stuff right away. After that, we will forget about each other. I also promise to deactivate and delete all the harmful software from your devices. Trust me. I keep my word. That is a fair deal, and the price is relatively low, considering that I have been checking out your profile and traffic for some time by now. If you don’t know how to purchase and transfer Bitcoin – you can use any search engine.

You need to send that amount here (Bitcoin wallet): 12xHi1pTom3od4CUDGMxAcABboM1W8iej1
(The price is not negotiable).

You have several days (2-3) in order to make the payment from the moment you opened this email.

Do not try to contact me. 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. Don’t be mad at me, everyone has their own work. I will monitor your every move until I get paid.

If you keep your end of the agreement, you won’t hear from me ever again. Everything will be done fairly.
