Subject: Your account was HACKED

 

Hello,

We’re members of an international hacker group.

We have installed trojan software into your device.

As you probably have guessed, your account xxx @ cuhk.edu.hk was hacked.

(see on “from address”, I messaged you from your account).

So far, we have access to your messages, social media accounts, and messengers.
Moreover, we’ve gotten full backup of these data.

We are aware of your little and big secrets…
We saw and recorded your doings on porn websites. Your tastes are so weird, you know.

But the key thing is that sometimes we recorded you with your webcam, syncing the recordings with what you watched!
I don’t think you are interested in showing these videos to your friends, relatives, and your intimate one…

Transfer 0.13 BTC (around $850) to our Bitcoin wallet:

36xv5CedtPGREtLqt2Wa4kaENjQJUovouY

(CASE-SENSITIVE. COPY and PASTE to avoid errors)

I guarantee that after that, we’ll erase all your “data” 🙂

You have 48 hours to pay the above-mentioned amount.

Your data will be erased once the bitcoin is transferred.

Otherwise, all your messages and videos recorded will be automatically sent to all your contacts found on your devices at the moment of infection.

We hope this case will teach you to keep secrets.
Take care!
