My Life is Ruined

Post by Glacier »

I just received the following email. I knew I shouldn't have been viewing all that gay porn, child porn, and just regular hard core porn with the webcam on.

You too, eh?

I sure would like to see the video of me that he has. I don't have a camera.

Is that the first time you’ve received it?
That’s been going around for quite a while now.

You three all have the perfect taste.

I'm guessing that in addition to recording you through the webcam you don't have, this guy who cracked you also can taste you. Now that is scary. He is a touch lazy. I mean, he obviously has full access to all aspects of your life. I'm not sure why he didn't just buy bitcoin on your behalf.

Anyhow, back to my porn.

What scares me the most is that people actually fall for this crap.

I just message them back, and tell them that some else already beat them to it by putting my (stolen) webcam video on the net and now I'm up for an AVN Award for best solo performance :biggrin:

I got a similar email last year....who hasn't?
I usually don't even give them a moment's consideration. But this particular one included a password and asked if that looked familiar.....and it did!

It was obviously one of my old passwords from 10 or 15 years ago. I use strong passwords and this particular one was easy for me to recognize that it was, in fact, my password.
Since I hadn't used that password in many years, I could only surmise that there's still old (very old) lists of data floating around out there that's still being used to scam.

What was even more concerning to me, is that the email, in trying to prove its legitimacy, described me....."You're really a good looking guy with an amazing body and an incredible appendage."
That proves it! They really had hacked me and had video. A shame I didn't have the $10,000 U.S.D. that it demanded...I'd have paid in a heartbeat! :D

Ask him if he has any pictures of his sister for sale. He sounds like he really needs the money.

How come I haven't got this email?

Last time I got the "Canada Tax man is putting me in jail" phone call I told the guy he'd sell his sister to Camel traders.

They don't call anymore :135:
