As we all know there are countless ways that people are attempting to scam people on the internet these days. Below is an email that was sent to me last night.

Quote
Hello!

My nickname in darknet is haley62.
I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago,
through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

Please check "from_address" for this email. You will see what I wrote this letter to you from yours account.

Even if you changed the password after that - it does not matter, my virus intercepted all the caching data on your computer
and automatically saved access for me.

I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history.
Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos.

I was most struck by the intimate content sites that you occasionally visit.
You have a very wild imagination, I tell you!

During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching.
Oh my god! You are so funny and excited!

I think that you do not want all your contacts to get these files, right?
If you are of the same opinion, then I think that $710 is quite a fair price to destroy the dirt I created.

Send the above amount on my BTC wallet (bitcoin): 1EWC67MSLiYRt2nNU5UWVMSxGG4b9RocUc
As soon as the above amount is received, I guarantee that the data will be deleted, I do not need it.

Otherwise, these files and history of visiting sites will get all your contacts from your device.
Also, I'll send to everyone your contact access to your email and access logs, I have carefully saved it!

Since reading this letter you have 48 hours!
After your reading this message, I'll receive an automatic notification that you have seen the letter.

I hope I taught you a good lesson.
Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don't enter your passwords anywhere!
Good luck!

I didn't fall for it but sadly the odds are that some mail recipients will fall for this crap.

Since I run this website and know a tiny bit more than the average person I get a chuckle out it. For me it is more entertainment when I see these things. Knowing how to read email headers I can see the true path the email took to arrive in my inbox and the scammer's claim that he had control of my mailbox and sent the email from inside my mail account is just something that makes me chuckle. From reading the raw email header data I could see the email came from Brazil and had been generated by a completely different email account and that it didn't originate from within my email account.

If you Google the nickname that this scammer says he goes by on the Darknet, haley62, you will find he has been pretty active and has been reported for Bitcoin abuse on several websites. You could probably also google the Bitcoin account and Google would show results of this scammer's activities.

So be careful out there my forum friends. Lots of scams on the Internet and many aren't just a harmless email like this.

I didn't need to put a padlock on my mailbox, the wife will be happy because always forget to take the key with her lol.


Seriously thank you for the heads up

Got the below blackmail email today. This one is targeting me as website owner and domain owner. I am amused but also pissed that people do things like this.

Quote
Name: Haroldlen
Email: gegfue@fgeufe.com
IP: 103.103.0.118
Message:
Hey. Soon your hosting account and your domain hdbitchin.com will be blocked forever, and you will receive tens of thousands of negative feedback from angry people.

Pay me 0.5 BTC until June 1, 2019.
Otherwise, you will get the reputation of a malicious spammer, your site hdbitchin.com will be blocked for life and you will be sued for insulting believers. I guarantee this to you.

My bitcoin wallet: 19ckouUP2E22aJR5BPFdf7jP2oNXR3bezL

Here is a list of what you get if you don’t follow my requirements:
+ abuse spamhouse for aggressive web spam
+ tens of thousands of negative reviews about you and your website from angry people for aggressive web and email spam
+ lifetime blocking of your hosting account for aggressive web and email spam
+ lifetime blocking of your domain for aggressive web and email spam
+ Thousands of angry complaints from angry people will come to your mail and messengers for sending you a lot of spam
+ complete destruction of your reputation and loss of clients forever
+ for a full recovery from the damage you need tens of thousands of dollars

All of the above will result in blocking your domain and hosting account for life. The price of your peace of mind is 0.5 BTC.

Do you want this?

If you do not want the above problems, then before June 1, 2019, you need to send me 0.5 BTC to my Bitcoin wallet: 19ckouUP2E22aJR5BPFdf7jP2oNXR3bezL

How do I do all this to get this result:
1. I will send messages to 33 000 000 sites with contact forms with offensive messages with the address of your site, that is, in this situation, you and the spammer and insult people.
And everyone will not care that it is not you.
2. I’ll send messages to 19,000,000 email addresses and very intrusive advertisements for making money and offer a free iPhone with your website address hdbitchin.com and your contact details.
And then send out abusive messages with the address of your site.
3. I will do aggressive spam on blogs, forums and other sites (in my database there are 35 978 370 sites and 315 900 sites from which you will definitely get a huge amount of abuse) of your site hdbitchin.com.
After such spam, the spamhouse will turn its attention on you and after several abuses your host will be forced to block your account for life.
Your domain registrar will also block your domain permanently.

All of the above will result in blocking your domain and hosting account for life.
If you do not want to receive thousands of complaints from users and your hosting provider, then pay before June 1, 2019.
The price of your peace of mind is 0.5 BTC.
Otherwise, I will send your site through tens of millions of sites that will lead to the blocking of your site for life and you will lose everything and your reputation as well.
But get a reputation as a malicious spammer.

My bitcoin wallet: 19ckouUP2E22aJR5BPFdf7jP2oNXR3bezL

Once again if you are interested you can search the bitcoin wallet address or the idiot's email address and you will see that he or she has been very active lately.

Received this sextortion email today...

Quote
I know, XXXXXXXXXXXX, is your password. You don't know me and you're thinking why you received this e mail, right?

Well, I actually placed a malware on the porn website and guess what, you visited this web site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching the video, your web browser acted as a RDP (Remote Desktop) and a keylogger which provided me access to your display screen and webcam. Right after that, my software gathered all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook account, and email account.

What exactly did I do?

I made a split-screen video. First part recorded the video you were viewing (you've got a fine taste haha), and next part recorded your webcam (Yep! It's you doing nasty things!).

What should you do?

Well, I believe, $1900 is a fair price for our little secret. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin to the below address (if you don't know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).

BTC Address:
bc1qg7nttg93d5y566udrl5mxu3nnczxkwqwhg9nlr
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)

Important:

You have 24 hours in order to make the payment. (I have an unique pixel within this email message, and right now I know that you have read this email). If I don't get the payment, I will send your video to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I do get paid, I will erase the video immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will send your video recording to your 5 friends. This is a non-negotiable offer, so don't waste my time and yours by replying to this email.

Jeana

I reported the Bitcoin account to a website called Bitcoin Abuse. You can Google the above bitcoin account and will find her account has been reported 5 times (maybe more) just today. I would love to meet sweet Jeana as she calls herself to give her my "thoughts" in person!!

It seems like the spammers and scammers have not taken any time off during this quarantine period. I think they have increased their activities.

Another one came yesterday...

Quote
From niyraphaelis@outlook.com

I am aware, xxxxxxxx, is your password.

I require your 100% attention for the coming Twenty-four hours, or I may make sure you that you live out of embarrassment for the rest of your life span.

Hi, you don't know me. But I know just about everything about you. Your fb contact list, smartphone contacts plus all the virtual activity in your computer from previous 125 days.

Consisting of, your self pleasure video footage, which brings me to the primary reason why I am composing this email to you.

Well the previous time you visited the adult porn websites, my spyware was activated inside your computer which ended up saving a eye-catching video clip of your self pleasure act simply by activating your web cam.
(you got a incredibly unusual preference btw lol)

I have the entire recording. If you think I 'm messing around, just reply proof and I will be forwarding the recording randomly to 6 people you're friends with.

It could end up being your friend, co workers, boss, mother and father (I don't know! My software will randomly choose the contacts).

Would you be capable to look into anyone's eyes again after it? I question it...

However, doesn't necessarily have to be that route.

I'm going to make you a 1 time, no negotiable offer.

Buy $ 2000 in bitcoin and send it to the down below address:

bc1***q52ak6swmh9wfpvv6jp4xjmfsnme3ad5szn3gyg
[CASE sensitive copy & paste it, and remove *** from it]

(If you do not know how, google how to buy bitcoin. Do not waste my valuable time)

If you send out this 'donation' (we will call it that?). After that, I will disappear for good . and never make contact with you again. I will delete everything I've got concerning you. You may very well carry on living your regular day to day life with absolutely no stress.

You have 1 day in order to do so. Your time will start as quickly you read this e-mail. I have an one of a kind code that will inform me once you read this email therefore don't attempt to play smart.   

This one I reported to Microsoft and Bitcoin.

And just so the scammer can find this post with their bitcoin address via a Google search and know that I reported them here is the bitcoin account without the asterisks as was seen above...

The website is now configured to block anyone using Anonymous Proxies aka TOR anonymity networks from..

1) Registering on the forum. Anyone using an Anonymous Proxies will not be able to register but can view the content in read-only mode.
2) Login, if you previously registered and then choose to use Anonymous Proxies your activities will be limited. Your established account won't be able to Login using Anonymous Proxies.
3) Posting, if you previously registered and use Anonymous Proxy your activities will be limited because as #2 above says you are blocked from logging into the forum.

Why?

We get a lot of attempts at registration from spammers coming from Anonymous Proxies aka TOR anonymity networks. By setting up this blocking at the start we get fewer registration attempts from the would be spammer group. It isn't that they are actually achieving a valid registration but they do get put into an approval list that I need to then delete. The block of known Anonymous Proxies will just stop them from wasting their time filling in the registration and then me having to delete them after further review.

Did you know that October is Cyber Security Awareness Month? Well it is and here is a good website that has some great resources for internet/cyberspace security...

https://www.cisa.gov/national-cyber-security-awareness-month

By the way my home network was upgraded to a Mesh WiFi router/system (Netgear Orbi) and the CUJO firewall that I posted about here couldn't handle the Mesh's backhaul channel that connects the satellite routers to the main router so I went with a Firewalla firewall for the home network...

https://firewalla.com

BTW CUJO stopped making their firewall and went on to develop a higher level of network firewall that is for corporate folks. You might still be able to find a new CUJO on Amazon or some other electronics websites for sale. Keep in mind it won't work for a Mesh Wifi Router.

Keep in mind that with COVID many new types of scams are out there. I recently have seen a couple of emails with the subject “Dear Pfizer Customer” and “Dear Moderna Customer”. If you see anything like this you should not open them.
