Took a peek in my span folder and found this gem:
has ziggy been searching for kitty pr0n when you are out?
I just got one of those!
"don't ask for proof or I'll definitely send it to 13 of your friends"
"Even for 9 months"
I actually typed something almost identical to this into an email and sent it to my Dad (his work account) about 10 years ago. His IT department were adamant that it was responsible for a whole heap of issues on their network.
The process of your onanism
Pure durty talk
Inbox full of these.
I should probably stop paying the ransoms, it seems to encourage them
Had emails which had almost identical text to each other with about 5 phrase changes in each, e.g.
english language grammar -> language sentence structure -> english sentence structure
toxified -> infected
hand fucking -> soloing -> fapping
Different amounts, different bitcoin accounts and different currencies, different senders (do lots of people have the first name "Gravel" or "Beard"?)
You're all dodgy wankers, clearly
My colleague got one of these the other day, bloody chancers.
My dad has received 2 . He's 82 and doesn't even have a camera connected to his PC.
That just proves the technical sophistication of these people.
They might have downloaded the camera app onto his PC
You're my wife now...
Why Do Nigerian Scammers Say They are From Nigeria? - Microsoft Research
“By sending an email that repels all but the most gullible the scammer gets the most promising marks to self-select”
It’s all part of the plan.
''Right now, I own all your contacts and videotape with you burp the worm''
My new favourite masturbation euphemism.
I think they've tried to translate their blackmail note using the Viz Profanisaurus.
More of this sort of thing, please.
unsurprisingly, none of the wallet addresses people have posted have ever had any bc in or out.
If these e-mails all start with "Hi, victim" why haven't the isp's cottoned on and marked them all as spam?
Let's say, hypothetically, that I am having a wank while writing this post. All that can be seen from my webcam is my face, unsurprisingly. It's hardly damning evidence of what I am (not really) up to.
Sorry abbout the typof. Typinf wiht oen hanf
I seriously wonder how such people have any money left over by the time that the Nigerian scammers get to them.
I understand you lost money in an internet scam, if you pay me 500 usd I can help get it back.
I have had something similar this evening.
Would normally delete without a thought, but it quoted a password at me, which is one I have used with the e-mail account it's been sent to - their e-mail started "I am aware [password] one of your passphrase."
They are asking for 3,000 dollars in shitcoin or whatever the heck it's called. (I seem to be considered worth more than editor )
Obviously it's bollocks, and they can fuck right off - quite apart from anything else I have never had a webcam attached to my computer, and I'm fairly sure the security software I have is OK.
From my records (I do have a system for passwords and do write them down - albeit nothing like in full) the only thing I have used that exact password for was a 'get points towards something useless for recycling stuff' scheme (Recyclebank) that my local council used until about 6 years ago.
Is there somewhere I should report this sort of shit?
Should I contact the US company (who are still in business but no longer working with my local council)? Obviously UK data protection law doesn't cover them, and it's going to be damned hard to prove it was them.
Or just delete the whole darn thing and forget about it?
There's been loads of major password breaches by big companies that should know better, so that's where they've most likely picked it up. Just make sure you've changed the password (in fact, try and change it regularly) and you can ignore the shit head scammer.
I don't have anything to do with that company now, and I don't use that exact password for anything else (and will make an effort not to use that combination of e-mail address / password for anything else in case someone out there is trying it for other things)
I have filmed the process of my оnanism. Send me money or I will rickroll you with that shit for years.
