    Just received an email from a client which was very worried about a scam email they just received, so I thought I would share this so you guys are aware it is out there.

    (I wasn't sure where to put this mods - so move as you see fit)

    This user is lady in her 60s that was on a business trip - and I seriously doubt she was looking at any porn. :xf.grin:
    Either way I have scanned her PC for viruses/malware and rootkits - and it is clean.

    I am sure plenty of people have probably sent this thug bitcoin worried what could happen if they didn't. Be careful out there, and don't be scammed! :doctor:

    Funny! I got the same exact email and my reply to it was:
    If it's hitting primarily domain investors mail boxes, chances are it's another domain investor with a dark side gig that won't end well for them.

    Sad :(

    Too funny. They stole the idea from a Netflix series... Black Mirror is what it's called, I think. It was the best episode imo.

    Talk about being uncreative. The dude claims to grab all the "victim's" реrsonаl infо, yet they don't address the victim in the email by their name.

    I also received it some time back. No mention of police, but the malware also apparently got my contacts family/work. And if I was in doubt and didn't pay they'd send it to one of my contacts to prove it's real. Deleted the email and moved on with my life.

    SCAM! SCAM!! SCAM!!!
