i never should’ve opened it, but i had an email in my spam with the title “Attention! 123Password”, the ‘123Password’ is an example email, standing for an actual password i use regularly. so, i opened and read the email.
————— “Hello today is 7/6/2020 and I was w4tching you about 25 days. Firstly i hacked your computer and then it is spread your phone.(Symetric segment) 37...*** That was your IP address. With open vulnerable port. (If your ISS gives you dynamic ip address. It might be changed. After hacking progress its doesnt matter. Anyway i deleted my backd00r on your devices after uploading your informations to my server) i have photos from your phone and your contact list. And some informations about you. All these are protected on my VPS server. And you will see what will i do if you dont send me 250$ via B1tcoin. If you want proof i did give you one of your p4ssword.in title .as you can see. It might be OLD all your p4ssw0rds in my database column. I choose random of your pass. It doesnt matter it was just a proof my mail script cant send photos.(Your shamely photos on your phone webcam :D) Anyway You will make payment with btc like i said. 1JWkjhantZRxqx&amp;amp;amp;&amp;amp;amp;G11Mi1cKyx7rweZahB6V DELETE &amp;amp;amp;&amp;amp;amp; FROM ADDRES.. This is my address if you dont know how to make payment search on google “Buy btc”.

You dont need to contact me) How to buy bitcoin-&amp;amp;gt; localbitcoins.com/guides/how-to-buy-bitcoins” ————- I blurred out the IP address they sent because i’m not sure if it’s correct to me or not. i looked it up and it says my public IP address is completely different, but i’m (21F) not super tech savvy and i’m not sure what this means.
i own a new macbook air i bought 2 months ago and the only scandalous thing i’ve looked up is the WickedWhims website for TheSims4 which i enjoy (lol) and i think one page actually took me to a spam page, but i exited out of it quickly. and yes i have scandalous photos/videos who doesn’t.
if you’ve gotten an email like this please let me know and let me know what you did. the only thing i know to do now is change my password on the websites where that password was used! thank you for your time.
