We have received many questions regarding email concerns that are similar to the below email. With several large digital breaches in the last few months, comes the risk that some of your data has been exposed. Recently several lists have been posted in open locations and they are unable to be removed at this time. Some criminals are using the exposed information to create doubt and shame to get the user to act. Please do not send money through an email request without verbally speaking with someone. Since this email doesn’t contain the normal spam triggers, our filter is allowing some of this mail. We are working towards a solution as quickly as possible.
Knowingly or unknowingly 80% of web traffic lands on an adult website once in a month. With this knowledge, and the hacked data the criminal can gather publicly, they use volume to get just 1 response to make it worth their time. As always you can send suspicious emails to firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call us at 235-6425. You only need to ask if it is a legitimate email.
Subject: cbennett – caddieguy
I’m aware, caddieguy, is your pass word. You do not know me and you’re probably thinking why you are getting this mail, right?
In fact, I actually setup a malware on the adult video clips (porn material) website and do you know what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching video clips, your browser started out working as a RDP (Remote Desktop) that has a key logger which gave me access to your display as well as webcam. Just after that, my software collected every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, and email.
What did I do?
I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a fine taste ; )), and second part displays the recording of your web cam.
What should you do?
Well, I believe, $2900 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).

(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)
You have one day to make the payment. (I have a specific pixel in this email, and right now I know that you have read through this email message). If I do not get the BitCoins, I definitely will send your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, coworkers, and many others. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I will erase the video immidiately. If you want to have evidence, reply with “Yes!” and I will send out your video to your 8 friends. This is a non-negotiable offer, so please do not waste my personal time and yours by responding to this e mail.
