Beware: Sextortion The Latest Scam In Town. by Owoyi: 12:07pm On Sep 14, 2018
Scammers are really upping their games this days, there is a clever new twist to old email scam which is called Sextortion. Sextortion simply means sex extortion.

Online scammers sent out spam emails telling recipients they have their compromising images and videos where they have been caught watching porn through their webcam and then threatens the recipient that they will release the video to all of their contacts unless they pay a Bitcoin ransom. Now you may be thinking this is not unusual, the scaring part of the email is that it contains real password used by the victim.

The email reads:

I’m aware that ******* is your password. You do not know me and you are probably thinking why you are getting this e mail, correct?

Well, i actually placed a malware on the adult videos (pornography) website and do you know what, you visited this web site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your internet browser initiated working as a RDP (Remote Desktop) that has a key logger which gave me accessibility to your display and also webcam. after that, my software program obtained all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as email.

What exactly did I do?

I made a double-screen video. First part displays the video you were viewing (you've got a nice taste haha), and second part shows the recording of your webcam.

What should you do?

Well, I believe, $2900 is a reasonable price tag for our little secret. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" on Google).

BTC Address: 19ZFj3nLSJCgoAcvZSgxs6fWoEmvJhfKkY

(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)

Important:

You have 24hrs to make the payment. (I've a unique pixel within this email message, and now I know that you have read this e mail). If I do not get the BitCoins, I will definitely send out your video to all of your contacts including relatives, co-workers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I receive the payment, I'll erase the video immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will send your video to your 9 friends. It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said do not waste my time and yours by replying to this e-mail.

What makes the email so confusing is that it contained recipient real password or a password they had previously used. You might be wondering how do they get this password, well this is very simple.

Scammers have access to a list of compromised passwords from one of the many data breaches that have occurred within the last decade although websites aren’t supposed to store passwords in plain text but sadly, some still do and ten years ago it was even more common. Even when sites store your passwords securely, hackers can still unhash the password and then put it up for sale on the dark web. The most annoying thing is that anyone can buy this vital information on Darkweb for as low as $1.

So far, more than more 1000 people have coughed up $7500,000 in Bitcoin for fear of their act being exposed.There are three main reasons this scam is successful

First, People often watch porn on their computer and so could easily be convinced a hacker knew what they were doing.

Second, it’s certainly feasible to gain access to someone’s webcam to watch them, and it’s happened before.

Finally, as the hackers have obtained old victim passwords that were once (or still are) in use, it’s easier to manipulate recipients into believing their computer has been taken over.


According to the FBI, here are some things you can do to avoid becoming a victim:

-Never send compromising images of yourself to anyone, no matter who they are — or who they say they are.
-Don’t open attachments from people you don’t know, and in general be wary of opening attachments even from those you do know.
-Turn off or cover any web cameras when you are not using them.
