Another blackmail attempt…

Just received another blackmail attempt in the email. Do they really think any person with half a brain falls for these…?

Posting it here so that anyone else who got this knows it should be ignored.
The following email originated from Korry Maykis (ujpamgnk[at]outlook.com) and was sent to one of my previous email accounts. The email’s subject mentioned a username/password combo I’m sure I’ve used sometimes, way back. Unfortunately, I don’t recall which site(s) I used it on.

Lets get directly to the purpose. Not one person has paid me to investigate you. You do not know me and you’re most likely thinking why you are getting this e mail?

In fact, I actually placed a software on the 18+ videos (pornographic material) web-site and there’s more, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean). When you were watching videos, your browser initiated working as a RDP with a keylogger which provided me accessibility to your display and also cam. after that, my software program obtained your complete contacts from your Messenger, FB, and e-mailaccount. And then I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you have a fine taste : )), and next part displays the view of your cam, and it is u.

You have got two different choices. We should check out these choices in aspects:

Very first solution is to disregard this e mail. Consequently, I most certainly will send your actual video recording to every one of your personal contacts and think concerning the shame you will definitely get. Not to mention should you be in an affair, how it would affect?

In the second place solution will be to pay me $7000. Lets think of it as a donation. In this instance, I most certainly will asap discard your video recording. You can carry on with your life like this never occurred and you never will hear back again from me.

You’ll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search for “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).

BTC Address to send to: 1Cjy1GiHXCAEh3DokmCjmtXYWk7xHLV4Gm
[case-sensitive, copy and paste it]

If you have been thinking of going to the law, good, this e mail can not be traced back to me. I have dealt with my actions. I am also not attempting to charge you much, I prefer to be paid. I’ve a special pixel within this e-mail, and now I know that you have read this e mail. You now have one day to make the payment. If I do not get the BitCoins, I will definitely send out your video to all of your contacts including members of your family, colleagues, and many others. Nonetheless, if I receive the payment, I will destroy the recording immediately. It is a nonnegotiable offer, that being said don’t waste my personal time and yours by responding to this mail. If you need proof, reply with Yes! & I will send your video to your 10 friends.

They’re making quite a few assumptions here:

  • I have colleagues
  • I have at least 10 friends 😎

Don’t fall for nonsense like this, and please leave a comment if you’ve received a similar email. And if you can give some idea of which site they got the username/password combo mentioned in the subject from, that would be swell 😎

  • Today another attempt, this time from Britani Omarley ncavalryyg@outlook.com:

    [redacted] is your pass, correct? I’m Britani. One of the xxx videos website you watched was infected with my malware which taped a video of your indecent stimulating doings using your webcam and even taped the video you were watching! In the video recording you are actually appearing interesting.

    Your mail and FB contacts were afterward sent to me by the malware.

    I’ll email your video to your friends unless you pay me $2000 via Bit coin in the next 36 hours to the below address:
    B I T C O I N Address: 1H2bC84BhGBJWVVmNkU9yHv11XUukv9W6c
    Make sure to Copy-Paste address because it is case sensitive.

    Once I get the money, I will destroy your recording and every other information I have about you. If I don’t receive the money, I will send your recording to every contact of yours. Just think about the embarrassment you experience. or in case you are in a committed relationship, how it would affect?

    If you want proof? Reply “Yes”, & I will email your video to six of your e mail contactsright now.

    Yours truly

    Britani Omarley

  • Evert I have video of you in your robe going to get your newspaper this morning. But since it was actually my newspaper that you stole off my porch, you have two choices. #1, Read it and return to me or #2 pay me $2. You have one hour to either return my newspaper or pay me the $2 in small unmarked bills or I will be forced to stop getting the paper. You have been warned. I will also post this on Twitter for everyone to see and you will be very scared and humiliated.

  • There’s discussion with lots of other examples (all of them a little different) in the comments here: https://krebsonsecurity.com/2018/07/sextortion-scam-uses-recipients-hacked-passwords/comment-page-14/#comments
