Hello, my perverted friend

Hello, my perverted friend, We’ve actually known each other for a while, at least I know you.

I would expect so, seeing that you refer to me as “my perverted friend”…

You can call me Big Brother or the All-Seeing Eye. I’m a hacker who a few months ago gained access to your device, including your browser history and webcam.

I doubt that very much. My webcam is disabled. But do go on, you have my attention.

I recorded some videos of you jerking off to highly controversial “adult” videos. I doubt you’d want your family, coworkers, and your entire <insert-not-used-email-address-here> – (your password for this mail on moment of hack : <password-from-1996>) contact list to see footage of you pleasuring yourself, especially considering how kinky your favorite “genre”.

I guess you have the dvd-shop.ch credential list, given the email address you “use”. Given nobody really buys DVDs any more, you must know that the credentials are very aged, right? You’ve also clearly not tried to log into the email “account” since it does not and never did exist.

I will also publish these videos on porn sites, they will go viral and it will be physically impossible to remove them from the Internet.

Physically? Besides, in Internet terms, I could be famous for five minutes. Isn’t this what people want nowadays!?!?

How did I do this?

More like “How didn’t I do this?” – but go on….

Because of your disregard for internet security, I easily managed to install a Trojan on your hard disk. Thanks to this, I was able to access all the data on your device and control it remotely.

Disregard? I worry for regular people if I have a “disregard”.

By infecting one device, I was able to gain access to all the other devices. My spyware is embedded in the drivers and updates its signature every few hours, so no antivirus or firewall can ever detect it.

Genius. Embedded in the drivers and updating its signature every few hours. I assume this is just a side hustle and you are some hotshot programmer somewhere….

Now I want to offer a deal: a small amount of money in exchange for your former worry free life. Transfer $950 USD to my bitcoin wallet:1BqMb5HKDj5xaTR65Psx1pfaDfzqWKPE65

Here comes the rub. The scam is actually working. The wallet has Bitcoin in it:

Also, looking back at transactions, it seems I am being asked to pay more than other victims (I find this grossly unfair!) and many are paying up. Really? Yes, really….

Anyway, the emotional pressure continues:

As soon as I receive confirmation of the payment, I will delete all the videos that compromise you, remove the virus from all your devices and you will never hear from me again. It’s a very small price for not destroying your reputation in the eyes of others, who think that you are a decent man, according to your messengers.

The videos you don’t have? Oh, hold on – I’m going to have to trust you here….

You can think of me as some sort of life coach who wants you to start appreciating what you have.

Eh? Life coach? You’re an opportunistic scammer with no technical skills to hack. Life coach <> you.

You have 48 hours. I will receive a notification as soon as you open this email, and from this moment, the countdown will begin. If you’ve never dealt with cryptocurrency before, it’s very easy. Simply type “cryptocurrency exchange” into a search engine, and then all set.

Here’s what you shouldn’t do:

Don’t reply to my email. It was sent from a temporary email account.

To my temporary account. Touché!!!!

Don’t call the police.

+: Don’t post your email to me on the Internet?

Remember, I have access to all your devices, and as soon as I notice such activity, it will automatically lead to the publishing of all the videos.

Don’t try to reinstall your system or reset your device. First of all, I already have the videos, and secondly, as I said, I have remote access to all your devices, and once I notice such an attempt, you know what happens.


Remember, crypto addresses are anonymous, so you won’t be able to track down my wallet. So long story short, let’s resolve this situation with a benefit for me and you. I always keep my word unless someone tries to trick me.

Oh trick me? If you wrote that in capitals, I would probably think you’re DONALD TRUMP.

Lastly, a little advice for the future. Start taking your online security more seriously. Change your passwords regularly and set up multi-factor authentication on all your accounts.

I do. I have. But thanks.

Best wishes.

Boomshanka back atcha!

Public Service Announcement

If you received a “ransom” from someone with this Bitcoin address (1BqMb5HKDj5xaTR65Psx1pfaDfzqWKPE65), don’t pay. The person is working with Fear Uncertainty and Doubt to pressure you into paying. Some people have paid.

You don’t need to pay.

Your devices are fine, consider the advice at the end of the email, have strong passwords and multi-factor authentication on your email accounts.
