Hey, I got some bad news for you today.

Check the sender of this email, it’s your email, which means I sent it from your email account.

But how?! Some time ago your computer was infected with my private malware, RAT (Remote Administration Tool).

My RAT gave me full access to all your files, accounts, contacts and it was also possible to spy on your desktop and you via your webcam.

I COLLECTED ALL YOUR FILES, ACCOUNTS, CONTACTS.
I RECORDED SOME NICE MOMENTS OF YOU FROM YOUR WEBCAM! ;D

I can post all your files, accounts, contacts, anywhere, even on the darknet.
I can send the video of you to all your contacts, publish it on social networks and everywhere else.

To stop me, pay 2100$ in Bitcoin (BTC).

In case you don’t know how to buy and transfer Bitcoins – you can use any modern search engine like Google. Small Tip. You can procure bitcoins from Paxful. Use Google to find it.

My Bitcoin (BTC) wallet is: 18bxkZG4UHHFyZMtMFbdDZWut6pQeMmfiS
Yes, this is what the wallet looks like, copy and paste it, it is (CaSe-sEnSEtiVE).

I’ll give you 2 days to pay.

After receiving the bitcoin (BTC), I will delete everything and you will never hear from me again.

Next time, update your browser before you surf the web!

PS – Don’t try to contact the police and other security services. Also, forget to tell your friends about this. If I discover this (as you can see, it’s not that hard considering I check all your systems) – your video will be shared with the public immediately.
