You have 2 days (48 hours) to pay. (I have a special code, and at the moment I know that you have read this email).
If I don't get bitcoins, I will send your video to all your contacts, including family members, colleagues, etc. However, if I am paid, I will immediately destroy the video, and my trojan will be destruct someself.
If you want to get proof, answer "Yes!" and resend this letter to youself. And I will definitely send your video to your any 11 contacts.

Send it to the FBI.
Maybe they’ll do their job for a change.
My son got one of these recently. As proof he doesnt watch porn, he laughed about it and sent the email to everyone in the family.
They’ve upped the ante since I got a similar email a few months ago. That one threatened to send all my contacts video of me watching porn on my computer (BWAHAHA!) if I didn’t send something like $250 in bitcoin.
the Deep State?
hah thats probably where this email was sent from...
I covered the webcam before I ever turned my notebook computer on.
I may have got it backward. I sent everybody in my family $731.00 in bitcoin. Still waiting for my porn.
Extortion scam threatens victims with compromising video of them watching porn
Ignore the emails.
They don’t have video.
But they have your password.
Have you checked your porn quotes? George can sell a computer to you for just that purpose.
BTW I hope this website isnt being monitored by the Federal Govermnent,
at this point Id fear more not where I surf the web, but that my posts here at Freep this year alone would be enough to earn a lifetime sentence in one of them maximum security prisons...
Can I get some clemency Senator Schumer?
Finally, a use for that blowhard Liam Neeson!
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.”
“BTW I hope this website isnt being monitored by the Federal Govermnent,”
Oh really? You sound like a total plant.
How is that proof he doesn't watch porn?
But I saw the light.
They've probably already gotten emails like this from watching porn on the job.
I got the lazy version of that yesterday... They didn’t have any old hacked Facebook or other Social Media passwords of mine, or my real name like some of the messages have. They wanted $1000 in bitcoin from me
Plus I don’t have any webcam, and the cameras on my smart phone are taped over, so that part would be an impossibility.
Reporting it to the FBI would be a waste of time. I checked mine out carefully and the sending email account was a hacked computer in Brazil, but the originating IP was in Algeria... so likely the money would be going into some terrorist bitcoin account.
The scheme isn’t new... has been running around for about 6 months.
Reply back saying it’s not “watching porn” its “reading erotica”...
If the FBI takes it seriously, unless they have other calls ahead of yours, they would probably want to look at your computer for evidence.
Do you really want that?
Your financial records, guns you have bought, research you have done.
Curiosity caused you to look at how to make bombs from stuff under your kitchen sink?
It is better to ignore some things.
