About This Email Scam

This email is a scam that tries to trick you into thinking that your device or email has been hacked, then demands payment or else they will send compromising information -such as images of you captured through your web camera or your pornographic browsing history - to all your friends and family.
Threats, intimidation and high-pressure tactics are classic signs of a scam.

To make the threats more credible, these scammers may include one of your passwords in this email. The scammers have your password from sites that were hacked, and in this case likely matched up a database of emails and stolen passwords and sent this scam out to potentially millions of people. If the password emailed to you is one that you still use, in any context whatsoever, stop using it and change it NOW. We also recommend that you enable two-factor authentication for your email and onlie accounts whenever that is an option. 

As you can imagine, this email and anything it states is just a scam to try and scare you into paying the ransom. Do not pay the ransom.  If you pay the ransom, you’re not only losing money but you’re encouraging the scammers to continue phishing other people.
