I Recorded You Satisfying Yourself - Send Bitcoin (BTC), Or Else...
Has someone recorded you? Or is this just another scam attempt? Scammers: Your loss is their gain.
Phishing scams are becoming increasingly common, and they can be very convincing.
One such scam that has been making the rounds lately is the "I RECORDED YOU!" email, which threatens to release embarrassing footage of the recipient unless they pay a sum of money in Bitcoin.
While people who are educated in digital safety knowledge and good practices can easily discard this type of email as phishing, there are some other people who may fear that the email is legitimate and act on it.
If you got an email that mentions a password you recognize as your own, what would you do?
Below we have copied a real email that one of our colleagues has received, but note that we have made one change:
- We have substituted the actual password with the word <PASSWORD>. To protect the anonymity of our colleague.

Hi, today there are sadly some bad news for you.
Your device was infected with my private malware, your browser wasn't updated / patched, in such case it's enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more, Google: Drive-by exploit.
My malware gave me full access to all your accounts, full control over your device and it also was possible to spy on you over your cam.
If you think this is some bad joke, no, I know your password: < PASSWORD>
I collected all your private data and I RECORDED YOU (through your cam) SATISFYING YOURSELF!
After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces and this email was sent from some hacked server.
I can publish the video of you and all your private data on the whole web, social networks, over email and send everything to all your contacts.
But you can stop me and only I can help you out in this situation.
The only way to stop me, is to pay exactly 1200$ in Bitcoin (BTC).
It's a very good offer, compared to all that horrible shit that will happen if I publish everything.
You can send the Bitcoin (BTC) directly to my wallet, or install the free software: Atomicwallet, or: Exodus wallet, then receive and send to mine.
My Bitcoin (BTC) wallet is: 14hAgJ1ZsReHU2JBJi1hk4AEyKd1YaqQ7a
Yes, that's how the wallet / address looks like, copy and paste it, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE).
I give you 3 days time to pay.
After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before, don't worry, I keep my promise.
Next time make sure that your device got the newsest security updates.
