Hello Pervert (again)

A new email: “Response for you’re doing.”

Hello pervert,

Erm, hello?

I want to inform you about a very bad situation for you. However, you can benefit from it, if you will act wisely. Have you heard of Pegasus?

Yes. You mean this?

This is a spyware program that installs on computers and smartphones and allows hackers to monitor the activity of device owners. It provides access to your webcam, messengers, emails, call records, etc. It works well on Android, iOS, and Windows.

Actually, it seems to be very limited to mobile devices and it also seems to be leveraged by Nation State threat actors. Is that you?

I guess, you already figured out where I’m getting at.

I am assuming you are all bluff and bluster because you don’t have the access to the devices you claim to have.

It’s been a few months since I installed it on all your devices because you were not quite choosy about what links to click on the internet.

I actually am quite choosy but do go on.

During this period, I’ve learned about all aspects of your private life, but one is of special significance to me. I’ve recorded many videos of you jerking off to highly controversial porn videos. Given that the “questionable” genre is almost always the same, I can conclude that you have sick perversion.

OMG, it’s that Shut Up and Dance moment. Should I ready my bicycle?

I doubt you’d want your friends, family and co-workers to know about it. However, I can do it in a few clicks. Every number in your contact book will suddenly receive these videos – on WhatsApp, on Telegram, on Skype, on email – everywhere.

Do people still use Skype? Are you some kind of Boomer?

It is going to be a tsunami that will sweep away everything in its path, and first of all, your former life. Don’t think of yourself as an innocent victim. No one knows where your perversion might lead in the future, so consider this a kind of deserved punishment to stop you.

Punishment indeed. I believe you want to punish my stupidity, I’d better read on to understand what that stupidity might entail.

Better late than never. I’m some kind of God who sees everything. However, don’t panic. As we know, God is merciful and forgiving, and so do I. But my mercy is not free.

So this it the moment where you come around with the collection basket?

Holy Tintinnabulation, Batman!

It even seems like two victims have paid you. Jolly well done!

Once I receive confirmation of the transaction, I will permanently delete all videos compromising you, uninstall Pegasus from all of your devices, and disappear from your life. You can be sure – my benefit is only money. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be writing to you, but destroy your life without a word in a second.

Aha, but you don’t know who I am, you just sent a random email to an email address from a breach. You faked the “From” to scare me (oh my) but of course I can see you relayed the email from:

[160-238-27-131.vivatele.com.br](<http://160-238-27-131.vivatele.com.br/>) []

It seems from Censys.io that you have no ports open. Which suggests you are in Brazil on this residential ISP running your own SMTP server (after all, you are unlikely to be relaying via the host if all ports are closed).

I’ll be notified when you open my email, and from that moment you have exactly 48 hours to send the money. If cryptocurrencies are unchartered waters for you, don’t worry, it’s very simple. Just google “crypto exchange” and then it will be no harder than buying some useless stuff on Amazon.

You won’t be. I won’t be. I guess then we won’t be.

I strongly warn you against the following: ) Do not reply to this email. I sent it from a temp email so I am untraceable. ) Do not contact the police. I have access to all your devices, and as soon as I find out you ran to the cops, videos will be published. ) Don’t try to reset or destroy your devices.

Since you did not forbid me from reporting you to your ISP, I’ve just done that. Since you cannot hide your IP address and the routing IP is closed to the Internet, I support that’s either you or some victim that you’ve managed to acquire.

As I mentioned above: I’m monitoring all your activity, so you either agree to my terms or the videos are published.

How did I agree to your terms? Did you agree to mine, by the way?

Also, don’t forget that cryptocurrencies are anonymous, so it’s impossible to identify me using the provided address.

You gave me your IP address. Or one that you’re linked to. Maybe there will be a knock at the door one day soon.

Good luck, my perverted friend. I hope this is the last time we hear from each other. And some friendly advice: from now on, don’t be so careless about your online security.

Good luck to you, my low-skilled scamster. I am really not careless about my online security, you should actually consider some self-reflection and maybe some upskilling. You did not even get ChatGPT to write your ransom note!
