There is a new Email Scam stating that your account was hacked or your account was infected.
There is a long story of how your computer was infected with a malicious program that will steal all your passwords etc. If you don’t pay the “ransom” the scammer will send to all your contacts information of adult sites you visited. Also including a video of you watching these sites as they recorded you with your PC’s camera.
It states that you need to pay them with Bitcoins to stop them from passing on the videos etc.
They are using spoofing methods to make the email appear as if its coming from your own email address.
The best cause of action to take – is to do nothing, just ignore these mails and delete.
Below is a snapshot of the email that the scammers are sending to my email addresses.
