”Hi perv. I recorded you masturbating!” is the title of the new Bitcoin Email Scam. The extortion or blackmail attempt is randomly sent to any email that the scammers can find on the internet. It is completely random. They don’t have a single video or image of you in an embarrassing position.
The bitcoin email scam has been reported by people of all ages and genders; men and women. In summary, they claim to have a video of you in an embarrassing position that they obtained with the help of a software. They also claim to have all your email contacts. They want you to pay them 2000usd, to their Bitcoin address, which is equivalent to 0.560794 BTC to delete the video and keep quiet.
Don’t fall for the extortion attempt, it’s a lie. Even though, the person(s) responsible for this bitcoin email scam, most likely, don’t have anything on you. If you send them money or reply to their email, they will know that you have something to hide, and they will never stop asking for more money.
Don’t ever send money to someone blackmailing you, whether they have something on you or not.
