I got an email this evening - it showed up in my junk mail, as I was browsing to delete whatever was there. There was an email there, with an old password of mine in the title. Basically, I was informed that I have been visiting adult web sites(I have, nothing out of the ordinary, but I've always used incognito mode when doing so) and this person had used malware to access my passwords and all my contacts on messenger etc. I have avast on my laptop, and when i ran it, it showed no malware present. They are looking for 968 dollars payment via bitcoin or they will release a video clip of what i have been watching and a video clip of me via my webcam to 8 people on my contacts list. With the usual advisor not to contact the police or anyone as they have covered their tracks etc.
Has anyone else had this happen to them and what did they do? Please no jokes, as I am really freaked out by this tbh, the password they used in the email was my password for Boards ffs.
