    You have 46 Hours in order to make the payment. (I have a Facebook pixel in this email, and at this moment I know that you have read through this email message). If I do not get the Bitcoin, I will certainly send out your files and video recording to all your contacts including relatives, coworkers and all contacts. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy all files and videos immediately. If you need evidence, reply with "Yes" and I will certainly send out your video recording to your 6 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer, Don't waste my personal time and your by responding to this message.


    I'm a Hacker who cracked your devices. I set up a malware on the adult video (p0rn) website and guess what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your internet browser started out functioning as an "HRDP" Hidden Remote Desktop Protocol which gave me accessibility to your screen and web camera. After that, my software program obtained all your contacts and files.


    What did I do?
    I generated a backup of your every system (private document files, video, photos, all files). I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you've got a good taste hahaha), and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam. All your data is already uploaded to a remote server. 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.


    Exactly what should you do?
    Well, in my opinion, 500 (USD) Dollars is a fair price for our little secret. You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (search "Bitcoin Wallet" in Application Store then Download and Install it) Make a deposit to your wallet. After that, transfer it to my wallet.
    My Bitcoin (BTC) wallet address: 👉 1KxcLRkaN9hfx3dZWurCNKbKhYsHzxa7xR 👈

    (It is case sensitive, Bitcoin wallet address Beginning with 1 and ending with R).

  • I got the same email as well. Just ignore it, it’s a scam and there are plenty of forums to support this.
