At Wednesday, 05:56 AM, in Brasilia time. I received in my site contact email, this message in poor English.
I didn`t send nothing in 2 days and nothing happened. This scam isn`t new, has already been posted by other sites in 2018. He used the e-mail to receive messages from “Contact” of Electrical e-Library, never subscribed this address in any site. How this e-mail has been leaked?
If you receive a similar e-mail, don’t fall for it, it is a scam. My PC’s camera is covered with black tape. Some information from Infopackets.
More information from PCrisk.
Scammers claim that they have hacked the user’s email account. To make this seem genuine, they used the ‘spoofing’ method, which allows them to forge email addresses – in this case, cyber criminals use the recipient’s email address, and thus it seems as if the recipient of the email is also the sender.
Do not worry about this email. Neither hackers nor cyber criminals have infiltrated/hacked your computer and there is no video of you watching pornography. Simply ignore the message and do not send any Bitcoins. Your email, name, and password was probably stolen from a compromised website such as Yahoo (these website breaches are common). If you are concerned, you can check if your accounts have been compromised by visiting the haveibeenpwned website.
