Did you receive and Email saying your Account has been hacked?

Webmaster

The contents of the hoax email reads like this:

Hello!

I'm a member of an international hacker group.

As you could probably have guessed, your account <email> was hacked, I sent message you from it.

Now I have access to you accounts! You still do not believe it?

So, this is your password: XXXXXXXXXXX , right?

Within a period from July XX, 2018 to October XX, 2018, you were infected by the virus we've created, through an adult website you've visited.

So far, we have access to your messages, social media accounts, and messengers.

Moreover, we've gotten full damps of these data.

We are aware of your little and big secrets...yeah, you do have them. 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 think you are not interested show this video to your friends, relatives, and your intimate one...

Transfer $X00 to our Bitcoin wallet: 1DuDhqSWdmRxJjaRRSpa9wRH7yf9ncgw56

I guarantee that after that, we'll erase all your "data" :D

A timer will start once you read this message. You have 48 hours to pay the above-mentioned amount.

Your data will be erased once the money are transferred.

If they are not, all your messages and videos recorded will be automatically sent to all your contacts found on your devices at the moment of infection.

You should always think about your security. We hope this case will teach you to keep secrets.

Take care of yourself.

(End of Email)

This a variant of the African scam.

Check the password they have sent you. You may find that it is an outdated password. BUT you need to take some precaution.

Change your Facebook etc. password and change your Email password.

Dont send any money to anyone.
