Subject: I hacked you and your devices!

 

Hello!

As you may have noticed, I sent this message from your account. xxx@cuhk.edu.hk

This means that I have full access to your dev͏ice and accounts. I’ve been watching you for a few months now.

The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.
After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).

If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.
V͏irus gives me full access and control your devices.
This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.
Why your anti͏virus did not detect malware? answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.
I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the scr͏een, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.

With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts.
If you want to prevent this, tran͏sfer the amount of $773 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: “Buy Bitcoin”).
My bit͏coin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1AirieZr8Ax9gUjZhyVeZqJzGaAkvUEBqq

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again. I give you 48 hours to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.
Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my b͏itcoin address.
I do not make any mistakes.

If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.
