Myantispyware team discovered a new variant of the “You may not know me” email scam that uses the 1A9GdMqaXmhgcjpxewqpjAuVtkDim6R9VK 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 scam is:
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 this 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 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 doesn’t matter, my malware updated it every time.
What did I do?
I generated a backup of your every system (private document files, video, photos, all files).
I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you’ve got a good taste ha ha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam.
Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All 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. Don’t be mad at me, everyone has their own work.
exactly what should you do?
Well, in my opinion, $ 2000 (USD) Dollars is a fair price for our little secret. You’ll make the payment by Bitcoin (search “Bitcoin Wallet” in Application Store then Download & Install) Make a deposit to your wallet. After that, transfer it to my wallet.
My Bitcoin (BTC) wallet address: 1A9GdMqaXmhgcjpxe***wqpjAuVtkDim6R9VK (Removed *** at the midle of address to get valid address) Important: You have 5 days in order to make the payment.
You have 2 days 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 your contacts including relatives, coworkers and all contacts. 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, don’t waste my personal time and yours by responding to this message.
