The FTC uses the information it gets from people who report scams to keep close watch on trends, so we can alert you to changes. The s say they hacked into your computer and recorded you visiting adult websites.
They threaten to distribute the video to your friends and family within hours, unless you pay into their Bitcoin. Delete the message. Based on the timing of this spike, you may get one of these messages because your was exposed in a recent data breach. The scammers may say they have access to your computer or webcam, or installed clever software to defeat you.
But they may really know one of your old — or recent — passwords, and they include it in the message to prove it. If you, or someone you know, get a message like this, please report it to the FTC at www. I have been getting these periodically since October I traced the password they had to an I used only for a couple of weeks in !
That is the only in which I used the password the scammers had. I had to laugh--each time I received the threat to send their alleged video to my contact list if I didn't pay up, the amount of the "ransom" was smaller! It had one my passwords, which meant this password of mine had been exposed.
Will change password of website andand had deleted the fraud by "Mono". I got the same one today, but 24 hours to comply. Filed FTC report. The password they had is a very old one and I make new passwords up all the time.
For anyone who is reading this thread, It's a good idea to change your passwords regularly if you don't already. I got the same one yesterday.
What is an FTC report? I forwarded to Comcast's Abuse comcast. I know Password is one of your password on day of hack. Lets get directly to the point. Not one person has paid me to check about you. You do not know me and Looking 4 something no spam probably thinking why you are getting this ? When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam. We are going to refer to it as a donation.
You'll make the payment via Bitcoin if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google. I have taken care of my actions. Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will destroy the recording immediately. If you need proof, reply with Yeah then i will send out your video recording to your 8 friends. I got this as well. Looks like the hackers get people's passwords by simply searching any of the numerous data breach databases available on criminal forums. I panicked at first but being in IT I read the entire and it seemed very suspicious obviously including the wording used.
I changed all my s using the password that was compromised. You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me. Got this also. I knew it was not true because 1. I don't visit porn sites and 2. I don't have a webcam.
Concerning they got an old password, but it appears to be an old forum password as I use much more secure PWs for and all other important s. I got this twice today, from two different addresses. I'm not worried because I never visited porn websites, LOL. Better luck next time suckers. At first I was worried that they knew an old password but when I read theI was like. Plus the webcam on my computer is covered, LOL.
Deleted the spam. I got the same today. But the password they tried to show me I don't know where or if I've ever used that one anywhere? Is there somewhere I can go to see where I would have ever used that password? Hey please tell what happened did you send the money did any harm come upon you afterwards? Because i recieved the exact same i am so panicked right now please someone help! In They do not have any video; they do not have access to your computer. All the same script based on an old Dropbox password. Ignored them all and nothing happens. Received same Tuesday September 29 Password quoted was something I used for many unimportant things.
I won't use it in future. Have reported to FTC for what it is worth.
I got this and it said my name was a password that they had and I was so confused because I'm not dumb enough to use my name for a password which just made the really weird for me I'm trying to go through everything to see what it could've been but idk So I got the same today about 7 hours ago, just curious what you did about it. I was pretty freaked out, still am a bit to be fair. I do know that it has to be bs since I don't actually have a webcam, none of my pcs ever did. But still, it's something that I would like to see tied up so I can safely move on.
Any suggestions? I got exactly the same thing letter by letter except for the amount It was instead of My goodness. Funniest thing is i never use my school mail on my phone where i usually go to the adult stuff. I received the exact sameyesterday. I recognised the password as one my husband used regularly but he died more than 3 years ago. Thank goodness for these kind of sites we can check and report to. I received this exact same ! Pretty much word for word! What did you end up doing????
I had a small panic attack when i first saw it. Got the exact same one word for word. Just reported it. Same situation and very grateful people took the time to write this up and inform the public on where to report it. Just imagine all the people who freak out and just respond with the demands in haste. I got the same a few days ago. At first I freaked out because the password was something I had used before but then I went to search about this because my parents are very serious when it comes to online security. And then saw it was happening to other people.
One thing I would recommend to anyone receiving this type of s is to check for old mails like verifications of some website s. I got the same exact .Looking 4 something no spam
