Full text of the email scam:
This is Jeanson Ancheta. Also known as Anc-h-EtA on the dark web. I spent my entire life working on digital security app developments, besides I am really a very good hacker/data leecher – if not the best.
I think around 9 months ago, I hacked this email address. You can check it. I am sending this email from your email address now.
I injected my code to all the devices which you had opened your mailbox on. And I started to monitor the activity on your devices. My first idea was to block and encrypt your files. Than I would ask for a small fee to release them back. But than one day, You visited some dirty websites. You know what I mean naughty thing. And I silently activated your front camera and recorded You. Yes! You were playing with yourself. What a funny video.
Now, I stole contact list of yourself. I have all your friends lists. A lot of information was downloaded to my system.
Checking your system with the antivirus systems will of course not work. I told you, I am not a rookie! What do I want? Well I am asking from you a small fee of 690 USD. This is the cost of my time, and I had spent quite a lot of time on you. If you don’t pay my fee, all the naughty screen videos will be delivered to your friends and family.
Send the amount to my bitcoin address: 1LisQiLaiwa1HZutVFKWhPqfKVUK96Yej8
I will give you 40 hours to complete the transfer. When you open that message, I will know it and the countdown starts.
