Sextortion Email 2023-07 Edition

I receveid at least a few of these emails now telling me that I've been caught on camera pleasuring myself. I find it funny because none of my devices have a webcam.

I'm posting this email here so you are aware of what to avoid. Please don't fall for this Sextortion:

  From: John Blue <JohnBlue@7822.com>
  Subject: I RECORDED YOU!


Hi, today there are sadly some bad news for you.

Your device was infected with my private malware, your browser wasn't updated / patched, in such case it's enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more, Google: Drive-by exploit.

My malware gave me full access to all your accounts, full control over your device and it also was possible to spy on you over your cam.

If you think this is some bad joke, no, for example I know your phone number: [REDACTED]

I collected all your private data and I RECORDED YOU (through your cam) SATISFYING YOURSELF!

After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces and this email was sent from some hacked server.

I can publish the video of you and all your private data on the whole web, social networks, over email and send everything to all your contacts.

But you can stop me and only I can help you out in this situation.

The only way to stop me, is to pay exactly 750$ in Bitcoin (BTC).

It's a very good offer, compared to all that horrible shit that will happen if I publish everything.

You can easily buy Bitcoin (BTC) here: www.paxful.com , www.coingate.com , www.coinbase.com , or check for Bitcoin (BTC) ATM near you, or Google for other exchanger.

You can send the Bitcoin (BTC) directly to my wallet, or install the free software: Atomicwallet, or: Exodus wallet, then receive and send to mine.

My Bitcoin (BTC) wallet is: 1NnKVByWGK6ivofJgvUfQca4VYNci55HYA

Yes, that's how the wallet / address looks like, copy and paste it, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE).

I give you 3 days time to pay.

After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before, don't worry, I keep my promise.

Next time make sure that your device got the newsest security updates.

ClientMailID: 000000

The "ClientMailID" may vary. They may also have some of the numbers from your phone number. Some other elements of this email may be unique for you like the @XXXX.com address in the FROM address. The signature seems to be the same that it's all from this "John Blue" character.

I have found some sources indicate that this is due to a recent security breach at Gemini where customer information was leaked and as a result, the scammers may have more info on you than usual to make the exploit look more scary.

Please don't fall for this and send them Bitcoin. You will never get that money back and there is no looming fear of you being naked on the Interwebz.
