Typically, if you receive a phishing e-mail in which you are told that there’s a Trojan Horse virus in your PC and that if you do not pay a set amount of money (usually in BitCoins) to the sender of the e-mail, they will use the Trojan to harm your computer or collect some sensitive data from it and then publish it online, similar to this one:
“I have very bad news for you. 03/08/2018 – on this day I hacked your OS and got full access to your account xxxxxxx On this day your account xxxxxxx has password: xxxxxxx So, you can change the password, yes.. But my malware intercepts it every time.” [… technical nonsense here …] “And I got an idea…. I made a screenshot of the adult sites where you have fun (do you understand what it is about, huh?). After that, I made a screenshot of your joys (using the camera of your device) and glued them together. Turned out amazing! You are so spectacular! I’m know that you would not like to show these screenshots to your friends, relatives or colleagues. I think $760 is a very, very small amount for my silence. Besides, I have been spying on you for so long, having spent a lot of time! Pay ONLY in Bitcoins! My BTC wallet: 1FgfdebSqbXRciP2DXKJyqPSffX3Sx57RF”
