Hi All,

I received a crappy email from a scammer saying he had locked my operating system, blah blah blah and he requested that I pay him some BTC to prevent this. I knew it was a scam but as he spoofed my email address there was no way of communicating with him, however when I checked the BTC wallet, there were 1 or 2 payments in there, today there are over $6400 worth of BTC in this wallet.

Is there anyone to report this to, can anything be done to stop people paying up, just hate watching a scammer get rich!!

I'll happily provide the header privately (it's a work account and not personal)

Link to BTC wallet:
Code:

I greet you!

I have bad news for you.
11/08/2018 - on this day I hacked your operating system and got full access to your account [email protected]

It is useless to change the password, my malware intercepts it every time.

How it was:
In the software of the router to which you were connected that day, there was a vulnerability.
I first hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it.
When you entered in the Internet, my trojan was installed on the operating system of your device.

After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).

A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a small amount of money to unlock.
But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and came to the big delight of your favorite resources.
I'm talking about sites for adults.

I want to say - you are a big pervert. You have unbridled fantasy!

After that, an idea came to my mind.
I made a screenshot of the intimate website where you have fun (you know what it is about, right?).
After that, I took off your joys (using the camera of your device). It turned out beautifully, do not hesitate.

I am strongly belive that you would not like to show these pictures to your relatives, friends or colleagues.
I think $892 is a very small amount for my silence.
Besides, I spent a lot of time on you!

I accept money only in Bitcoins.
My BTC wallet: 1B1Vov1LTLGLcVG3ycPQhQLe81V67FZpMZ

You do not know how to replenish a Bitcoin wallet?
In any search engine write "how to send money to btc wallet".
It's easier than send money to a credit card!

For payment you have a little more than two days (exactly 50 hours).
Do not worry, the timer will start at the moment when you open this letter. Yes, yes .. it has already started!

After payment, my virus and dirty photos with you self-destruct automatically.
Narrative, if I do not receive the specified amount from you, then your device will be blocked, and all your contacts will receive a photos with your "joys".

I want you to be prudent.
- Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data is already uploaded to a remote server)
- Do not try to contact me (this is not feasible, I sent you an email from your account)
- Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help either, since your data is already on a remote server.

P.S. I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment, as you are not my single victim.
This is a hacker code of honor.

From now on, I advise you to use good antiviruses and update them regularly (several times a day)!

Don't be mad at me, everyone has their own work.
Farewell.

This sort of thing is not baitable. There's no way to fake a Bitcoin transfer, and if the From and Reply-to are both spoofed, there's no way to bait him. You can still post it on Scamwarners so that people searching for the Bitcoin address can recognize the scam.

Posting this kind of thing at Scamwarners can help, in case someone searches for the text and especially the bitcoin wallet ID.

In this specific case the exact mail has already been posted at Scamwarners: there's a post here in a thread full of different examples.

There's not much else that can be done with these unfortunately. If you come across any others, do feel free to add them to that thread over at Scamwarners.

But, can they actually do what they claim???

My gut says no. But...

Just wondering.

EDIT: Saw this article, felt it should be shared. Answered my questions
