In the last few days you likely received a mail from @outlook.com or @hotmail.com domain accounts saying “XXXXXXXXX is one of your password” and asking you for an amount of Bitcoin (BTC) to avoid revealing videos while you watch adult/sex vids.
Well, that’s clearly fake. Your password has been probably taken from a public data breach (e.g., LinkedIn Data Breach). So, the main cyber-criminal ‘s scope is to scare you, so that you are encouraged to pay the requested amount of money.
Of course, don’t send any money to that BTC account. Instead, consider to change all your passwords.
You can verify if your account has been previously hacked on the following web site: haveibeenpwned.com
Below the text of two mails.
I know xxxxxxxxxxx is your pass. Lets get directly to point. You may not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email? No person has paid me to investigate about you.
In fact, I setup a malware on the X vids (porno) web-site and you know what, you visited this website to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching video clips, your browser started functioning as a RDP with a key logger which provided me with access to your screen as well as web cam. Just after that, my software program collected every one of your contacts from your Messenger, social networks, as well as e-mailaccount. And then I made a double video. First part displays the video you were viewing (you've got a nice taste hehe), and next part displays the recording of your cam, yeah it is you.
There are two different choices. Let us explore these possibilities in details:
Very first choice is to dismiss this e-mail. Then, I will send out your actual video clip to each of your your personal contacts and consider about the disgrace you feel. And consequently should you be in a relationship, precisely how it will eventually affect?
2nd option will be to give me $7000. Lets refer to it as a donation. In this scenario, I will straightaway remove your video recording. You can go on daily life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me.
You'll make the payment through Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google search engine).

In case you are curious about going to the cop, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me. I have dealt with my actions. I am also not trying to ask you for money very much, I just want to be rewarded. You now have one day in order to pay. I have a special pixel in this e mail, and right now I know that you have read this message. If I do not receive the BitCoins, I will, no doubt send out your video to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so forth. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy the recording right away. If you want to have proof, reply with Yes & I definitely will send your video to your 13 friends. It is a nonnegotiable offer and so please do not waste mine time and yours by replying to this email message.
