Lodewijk Posted December 13, 2018 Share Posted December 13, 2018 (edited) Hi, yesterday I got a blackmail e-mail. Someone send it seemingly from and to my e-mail address. As if I send it to myself. He claimed he had hacked a porn site I had been going to, had gotten my address there, had loaded a Trojan on my PC, used my webcam to spy on me, and had images of me looking very excited at pictures and clips on that site. He also had everything I have on my PC. That I had to pay him €35 to get rid of him, and he gave a bitcoin address. I know all that is bogus -not that I've never visited a porn site- as I always have my webcam lens closed off, except for an occasional Skype talk. Plus I have no malware on my laptop according to Emsisoft, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro and the free herdProtect which uses 68 scan engines. But I did not forward it to SpamCop, as he used my e-mail address to send it from. Although I suppose SpamCop can see in the header that is not coming from me. So in case he sends me more, shall I just tap it away again, or report it to SpamCop? Edited December 13, 2018 by Lodewijk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
