Myantispyware team discovered a new variant of the “You may not know me” email scam that uses the 1B567KBJcMwtbp3FyZ1BFudQvn9ojWKEEB Bitcoin wallet account to get money from its victims. Like previous versions of this scam, it is distributed through spam emails. The scam is sent out to thousands of emails at a time.

The full text of the email scam:
You may not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this email, right? I’m a hacker who cracked your devices. i setup a malware on the adult video (porn) website and guess what, you visited the site to have fun (you know what i mean). While you were watching videos, your internet browser started out functioning as a “HRDP” – Hidden Remote Desktop Protocol having a keylogger which gave me accessibility to your screen and webcam. After that, my software program obtained all of your contacts and files. You entered a password on the websites you visited, and i intercepted it. Of course, you can change it, or already changed it. But it doesnt matter, my malware updated it every time
What did i do?
I generated a backup of your every system (private document files, video, photo, all files). I created a double screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you’ve got a good taste haha…) and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam. Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (all of your data is already uploaded to a remote server) Do not try to contact me. Various security services will not help you; Formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help either, since your data is already on a remote server. I guarantee you that i will not disturb you again after payment, as you are not my single victim. this is a hacker code of honor. Dont be mad at me, everyone has their own work.
Exactly what you should do?
Well, in my opinion, $500 (USD) is a fair price for our little secret. You’ll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in google).
My bitcoin wallet address:
(its case sensitive, so copy and paste it)
You have 46 hours in order to make the payment. (I’ve a facebook pixel in this mail, and at this moment i know that you have read through this email message). To track the reading of a message and the actions in it, I use the Facebook pixel. Thanks to them. (Everything that is used for the authorities can help us.) if i do not get the bitcoin, i will certainly send out your video recording to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, social network and so on. Having said that, if i receive the payment, I’ll destroy the video immediately.
If you need evidence, reply with “Yes!” and i will certainly send out your video recording to your 6 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said don’t waste my personal time and yours by responding to this message.
