Victim Be Careful next time, Scam (5-4-2018)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is attempting to blackmail the victim. The scammer claims that the user went on a adult website and downloaded the scammer’s malware. The malware, the scammer claims, captured the user in some private moments. The scammer will send the video to all of the victim’s relatives unless the victim sends over $363 in bitcoin over to the scammer’s wallet.

This scam depends on the victim being afraid that they will be shamed by their relatives/ people viewing the video. Out of fear of embarrassment the victim will sometimes send over the money. This is a scam, the scammer does not have a video of the victim and even if they did, they would not delete it because the victim sent over some money. The scammer will continue to harass the victim for money until the victim gives up. The best course of action if you receive an email like this is to delete it and ignore the email.
