My virus grаbbеd all yоur рersоnаl infо and turned on your саmеrа which cарturеd thе
prоcess of yоur onаnism.

Onanism? Oh, how priceless! 😂🤣

I know, right?  And believe me, I wish I had the "position and status" in life where I would be "shamed" if the people I knew saw my "onanism" (which, for some strange reason, still hasn't happened, despite it being far more than 48 hours since I opened the e-mail).

Timmy is right - we can't stop these people (as I noted in an earlier post, I remember when the Nigerian e-mail scam was a big thing; this is the same mentality - trying to defraud people out of their money - just packaged differently), but we can defeat them by refusing to fall for their ploy.

Onanism, as originally practiced by the man himself, Onan, wasn't what these idtiots think it was.

The story tells about a man and his brother during ancient Bible times. One of the men's wives died. The practice, ordered by God, among the ancient Hebrews was that if a man died without leaving an heir, the dead man's brother would have sex with his wife until she was able to give birth to a male child so that the dead brother's family line could be continued. 

Onan, the surviving brother, for whatever reason did not want his brothers linaege to continue so he slept with the woman but withdrew and shot his load on the ground rather than impregnate her. 

Apparently, so the story goes, is that this pissed God off so much that he struck Onan dead on the spot. 

So yeah, Onanism... lol. It wasn't the fact that the guy was whacking off. It was that he refused to follow the ancient, God ordered custom and give the woman a child to take care of her in her old age and to perpetuate the dead man's linaege.

Idiotic story, but there it is!

The price of a good wank seems to be so variable!  For $1,000US a time I might even have a wank on camera and take the cash from the public who suibscribe to my channel. [Note to self: you do not have a channel]

I'm getting so many of these I can't be bothred to post them all. This one came better bundled than the others. Obvioulsy it's organised crime, and the emails are, at first sight, quite scary.  They are meant to be.

In the UK they get reported to NFIBPhishing@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk where they are aware of the fraud and are workig out what to do.  If you are not a UK resident please find your national place to report them and report yours there.  And yes, I know this is not a phishing attempt

You may not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this e mail, right?
I'm a hacker who cracked your email and devices a few months ago.

Do not try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from YOUR hacked account.
I setup a malware on the adult vids (porno) web-site 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 a RDP (Remote Control) having a keylogger which gave me accessibility to your screen and web cam.
After that, my software program obtained all information.

You entered a passwords on the websites you visited, and I intercepted it.
Of course you can will change it, or already changed it.
But it doesn't matter, my malware updated it every time.
What did I do?

I backuped device. All files and contacts.
I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you've got a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your web cam.
exactly what should you do?
Well, in my opinion, $1000 (USD) is a fair price for our little secret. You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).
My Bitcoin wallet Address:
17kHUhZJkn9Z9zR3rYc1MoYUvbdUqhbPH2
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)

Important:
You have 48 hour in order to make the payment. (I've a unique pixel in this e mail, and at this moment I know that you have read through this email message).
To track the reading of a message and the actions in it, I use the facebook pixel.
Thanks to them. (Everything that is used for the authorities can help us.) If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your video recording to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so on.

There is no unique pixel. We used to call such things 'webbugs'. Thsi scam needs nothing except fear of having your dick waving around.  Now I'm not at all worried about pictures of my dick being in public, but I also know they don't have them. The whole scam is non existent.  And they cannto have hacked the account they emailed because... it does not exist. It looks as if it might exist, but it doesn't. It has never logged in to anywhere at all

I agree on all counts. Sadly there are emails out there that are malicious and can end up causing bad things to happen, which makes these scams all the more dangerous to the uninformed. Which is why I delete indiscriminantly anything that enters my box from anyone I don't know or am not expecting communication from. While opening an email isn't a problem on it's own, in these days of touch screens it's so very easy to inadvertently touch a link... and off we go to the races! lol

I can only think of two possible reasons for this:

#1 Maybe they think that we didn't see the original e-mail because it wound up in our s-mail's spam folder (or otherwise completely blocked because of filters) and so got deleted without us ever reading it (so they're thinking, "Hey, maybe I'd better send it again, only slightly reworded to maybe get it past their e-mail's various filters!").

#2 They're just doing bulk e-mailing (maybe using some automated setup - way back when spam e-mail started being sent out I know we used to call a certain type of such programming as a "spambot"; I don't know if the term is still in use) and so there isn't anyone really paying attention to where the e-mails are being sent (and so there's no one involved who's realizing that sometimes the same e-mail addresses are being hit).
Now they send it as a picture  [message #75607 is a reply to message #74415] Mon, 11 March 2019 09:11 Go to previous message

This avoids being detected easily by spam prevention systems. Same meat, different gravy

http://forum.iomfats.org/?t=getfile&id=5058&private=0
Notice that they no longer quote an old password from an ancient data breach elsewhere, they just go for the jugular instead. But this is far less effective because you don't get that frisson of "Oh SHIT!"

I think many of these are copycat crimes. In the UK we are asked to forward the email, as an attachment, to NFIBPhishing@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk so I so. It;s mainly to give the evidence by the kilo.
