Yet again, we have a fraudster who is trying to blackmail you into parting with your hard earned cash.
We have been receiving updates from our Clients of the latest email scam. The sender purports to have one of your passwords, have access to your pc and will send a video of you to all your contacts. One of your passwords will be shown within the email.
Whilst this may seem alarming, in actual fact, this will be a password you used some years ago and attained from a leaked database, probably Linked-In or Talk Talk. Generally, people use the same password for different sites and accounts. This dramatically reduces your security and leaves you wide open to this type of fraud.
We have pasted below the email contents. Due to the spam style email, this is likely to end up in you Junk folder. If you do receive the email, it is essential you change your password on any website or account that uses the password shown in the email. Additionally, ensure you have recently performed a full anti-virus and malware scan of your PC or MAC.
As we keep advising, never use the same password for different accounts and CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD at least once a month.

I am well aware xxxxxxxxx is your pass. Lets get directly to purpose. You do not know me and you are most likely thinking why you’re getting this e mail? Absolutely no one has compensated me to investigate about you.
Let me tell you, I installed a software on the adult video clips (pornography) web-site and do you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were viewing videos, your browser started functioning as a Remote Desktop that has a keylogger which provided me with accessibility to your screen and also web camera. Immediately after that, my software obtained all your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as emailaccount. After that I made a double-screen video. First part shows the video you were viewing (you’ve got a fine taste haha . . .), and second part shows the view of your cam, and it is you.
You actually have 2 solutions. We are going to go through these options in particulars:
First solution is to just ignore this e-mail. As a consequence, I most certainly will send your recorded material to just about all of your personal contacts and also think about the disgrace you will see. And likewise if you are in an important relationship, precisely how it will eventually affect?
2nd choice will be to give me $1000. Lets describe it as a donation. As a consequence, I will instantaneously eliminate your videotape. You could continue on your daily life like this never happened and you never will hear back again from me.
You’ll make the payment through Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google search engine).

If you may be looking at going to the police, anyway, this e mail cannot be traced back to me. I have covered my moves. I am also not trying to ask you for a whole lot, I only want to be paid for. I have a specific pixel in this e-mail, and right now I know that you have read through this e-mail. You 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 friends and family, colleagues, etc. However, if I receive the payment, I’ll destroy the video right away. It’s a non:negotiable offer and so don’t waste my time and yours by responding to this message. If you want proof, reply Yeah then I will send out your video recording to your 15 friends.
Read this post carefully, since it can be the last in your life.
People are by nature envious. Given the fact of successful development of your business, people (your rival ) paid me 30,000 GBP for your cutted ears.
It’s not the first time I’ve done this kind of work, but I’m already tired of these envious bastards and your life will be the last one I’ll take or will not do, it’s up to you.
Under normal circumstances, I would just do the work for which I was paid without going into the details, but I’m going to get away from it and go on a long-awaited vacation.
You have 2 options for solving this situation.
Adopt my proposal or deflect.
You pay me 5 thousand £ for safe your life and you receive all the information about the customer with whom you apply to the police and thus you save your life and the lives of your relatives.
The second option is you ignore my proposal and turn to the police, but by the same token you will only postpone your doomsday, even if I can not do the work, then someone else will do it, not within a week and say in a month or half a year, but order for your head will be fulfilled sooner or later.
Thus, you will be afraid of every rustle, walk around looking and thinking that you are being persecuted.
If you want such a life, your choice, but if I were you, I would think very well.
Tickets to England have been taken for July 28, and you have exactly 3 days to transfer money to an anonymous account bitcoin 1AX7eBFHoZCt2iX5i9WBwg7FXC26AHLf9v.
The last time I can check it 28th before flying to you.
In the event of receiving a reward, I will not come to take your life, but will also pass all the information about your customer (Let the bastards get what they deserve) and you can protect yourself, otherwise you know the consequences.
The well-being of the future life depends on your choice.
Think about your life, you family.
