There are many ways to get scammed on the Internet and one of the most common ones is by trusting random spam and phishing e-mails that get sent to your e-mail address. There could be all sorts of lies written in such letters, all aimed at tricking you in one way or another.

For instance, you may be told that your debit or credit card has been blocked and you now have to provide its number and expiration date to have it unblocked. Or, you may be told that you’ve won some kind of prize and now must provide your online banking details in order to receive said prize.

Many of our users reported to us about an ongoing email spam with the following messages:

Subject: Leaked uncensored photos from your device are about to be shared to public.

Greetings! I am a professional hacker and you were under my
observation for quite some time now. Nowadays, it is not really hard
to organize, mostly for IT enthusiast like me. You may be wondering,
how did I manage to spy on you? Well, there are plenty of harmful
websites out there and it turns out that you like to visit them during
your free time. As result, my spyware has downloaded to your device.
This spyware detects all image-format files on iOS devices (HEIF, HEVC
or JPEG) as well as Android (JPEG, JPG or HEIC) devices. The most
interesting part is that whenever you connect to WIFI or to mobile
network (3G/4G+/H+/LTE), all your photos get quietly synchronized in
silent mode to my own cloud storage. I have collected sufficient
content in order to share to public your undisguised photos in social
networks, like Instagram or Facebook in a form of new posts or news,
or via personal messages of WhatsApp Viber, Telegram etc. Hence, even
if you delete those photos from your device, I still have got a copy
of them in my cloud, so you won’t be able to delete them as well. In
order to avoid YOUR UNCENSORED HOT NEWS being shared to your
contacts, I can suggest a fair deal to you. This deal is valid within
72 hours. Based on this deal, you need to transfer 1000 USD (in
Bitcoin equivalent) to my bitcoin wallet and after that I will
completely disappear from your life. In event that you are still
unaware about how to complete bitcoin funds transfer, you can easily
solve this issue by Googling “Buy Bitcoin with Credit Card or Debit
Card” or something similar. Besides that, there are plenty of P2P
services that can transfer the required Bitcoin amount to my wallet in
exchange for funds transfer from your bank card (Visa, MasterCard or
Maestro). Here is my Bitcoin address:
18bSTrufLfuvHwS7JYuF626MBGULSmxTgR I really want to settle this
situation in a peaceful manner and I believe you want that too.
Nothing personal, it is simply my job. Make sure you use valid
Antivirus software and stay away from unwanted websites. Take care of
yourself.

In the current article, we will tell you about one other recently detected spam e-mail scam where users are threatened that a hidden Trojan in their computer will do something bad unless a Bitcoin ransom is paid to the cryptocurrency wallet of the blackmailer. This is actually a rather common occurrence where users receive such letters and if you are currently one of those users, you must know what the best course of action is.
