Strange looking emails for bitcoin

Hello all,

For the last few days, in multiple addresses that belong to me across my network, I’ve been getting email claiming that I’ve been doing some questionable things. There is only one problem that whoever sends these emails don’t know, and that they can’t use to their advantage.

The email claims that I’ve visited adult web sites and viewed teen material. If I were to view material, I would look for adult material.

Next, the message claims that I installed software which turned on my camera and they have video of me doing things while watching the video.

Next, they want bitcoin, which is a form of crypto currency. Its been around now for several years, and Security Now has talked about it in depth if you wish to learn more.

Whomever is sending these emails just wants payment. They claim to have my address book. Problem is, one of the addresses is a shared address and therefore doesn’t have an address book, so if they want to share something, they can, cause the mp4 which is a video file, would be blank.

As I’ve indicated, I’ve gotten several of these messages, and I believe all have gone to forwarders. Luckily, those addresses don’t have address books, right?

I would copy and paste the email in question, but i’ve decided that I don’t want to do that. What I want you to know, is that this is more than likely a scam. Even if they claim to hack your facebook like my various emails did, I know that I have two factor on my facebook, and it has not bothered me about potential log ins.

Stay safe out there, know what you have, and remember that this is just to get you to pay money you may not even have. Bitcoin can only be gotten in certain ways, and a search engine may not nevcessarily tell you where in your part of the world you can get bitcoin. I know of no place in which to get bitcoin, and I honestly haven’t invested any type of money to get coin. Its mainly used for illegal stuff anyway, although you can now use it at some places to buy, but its very few.

Thanks for reading, make it a great day.
