Dangerous SPAM - NOT amateur radio

Recently in my SPAM folder I received this. The important thing is these scammers have a way of detecting passwords. So have unique passwords and ones that are hard to crack and change them often. Should you receive anything beware!! 

"I am aware $$$$$$ (password hidden but visible in the original SPAM to me is one of your pass. Lets get directly to the point. Not a single person has compensated me to check about you. You may not know me and you are most likely thinking why you are getting this email?

Well, i actually placed a malware on the adult videos (pornography) web-site and there's more, you visited this web site to have fun (you know what i mean). When you were watching video clips, your web browser started out working as a Remote control Desktop with a key logger which provided me accessibility to your screen and also webcam. after that, my software collected every one of your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as e-mail. after that i created a video. 1st part displays the video you were viewing (you have a fine taste rofl), and second part shows the recording of your web cam, and it is u.

You get two different options. Why dont we take a look at the options in details:

1st alternative is to ignore this e-mail. in such a case, i will send out your very own video clip to all your contacts and then consider concerning the humiliation you will see. and definitely if you are in a romantic relationship, just how it will certainly affect?

Second option would be to compensate me $2743. Lets refer to it as a donation. Then, i most certainly will straightaway erase your video. You could keep daily life like this never happened and you would never hear back again from me.

You will make the payment through Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google search engine).

Bitcoin address to send to: 16G7Lwom3tnKJ9nMpwcQzDJd4rrYvcrs2s

[case sensitive copy and paste it]

in case you are curious about going to the authorities, well, this email cannot be traced back to me. I have taken care of my actions. i am not trying to charge a fee very much, i would like to be compensated. in order to make the payment if i do not get the bitcoin, i will definately send your video to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so forth. Having said that, if i receive the payment, i will destroy the video immediately. If you want evidence, reply Yup! & i will send out your video recording to your 11 friends. it is a nonnegotiable offer, therefore don't waste my personal time & yours by responding to this email message."

You know Roger, there is a big business/trade going on at the darkweb. Others selling these passwords. Others buying and try to get easy profit. I too received these kind of e-mails. The only thing you can do is changing that particulair password fast. And of course not get in contact with this idiot. Nothing is going to happen since those are all lies. But I'm shure others will pay because they are afraid.....I feel sorry for them. 73, Bas

Hi Roger,
They will have obtained one of your passwords from a past data breach (by an online service that you had a login with). You can confirm this by using https://haveibeenpwned.com/

I checked the Bitcoin address provided in the spam email - no-one has ever paid any money into it!
