Attempted Blackmail Scam Watching Porn

A slightly less common scam this morning with this blackmail attempt. It says that he has placed a keylogger on your computer and has evidence of you “playing with yourself” while visiting a porn site. He also states that he has stolen your contacts list. He asks for $350 in bitcoin, otherwise, he will send the “evidence” to 5 names on your contact list. There was no tracking pixel in this email.

This sort of scam has been around for quite a long time and tends to target different countries or regions on a regular basis. This is the first one targeting the UK that I have seen.

If you do receive an email like this, Don’t panic, Do not respond to it, just contact https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/asov, follow the advice on that site and then delete the email from your computer.
The email has a subject of “AUJ: [sandra@victimsdomain.com] 20/02/2022 04:19:20 This time it will not be so easy to get off” and comes from Refugio Eagon <community@diewall.net>

They use email addresses and subjects that will entice, persuade, scare or shock a user to read the email.
One of the emails looks like this:

Good day.

If you were more scrutiny while playing with yourself, I wouldn\’t write dis message. I don\’t think that playing with yourself is very awful, but when all colleagues, relatives and friends get video of it- it is unpleasant for u.
I adjusted malisious soft on a web-site for adults (with porn) which was visited by you. When the object tap on a play button, device begins recording the screen and all cameras on ur device begins working.

Moreover, soft makes a dedicated desktop supplied with keylogger function from the system , so I was able to save all contacts from ur e-mail, messengers and other social networks. I\’ve chosen dis e-mail because It\’s your working address, so you must read it.

I think that 350 usd is pretty enough for this little misstep. I made a split screen vid(records from screen (u have interesting tastes ) and camera ohh… its funny AF)

So its your choice, if u want me to erase ur disgrace use my bitсоin wаllet аddrеss: XXXXXX
You have one day after opening my message, I put the special tracking pixel in it, so when you will open it I will see.If ya want me to show u the proofs, reply on this letter and I will send my creation to five contacts that I\’ve got from ur contacts.

P.S. You are able to complain to police, but I don\’t think that they can solve ur problem, the investigation will last for one year- I\’m from Ukraine – so I dgf lmao
