New little twist to the "I'm recording you" extortion emails.

Just got another one, addressed to the unique contact email address on my website, nothing that I ever actually use to communicate with, but I noticed an interesting "PS" at the end of the extortion email.

You can visit police but they will not help you with solving the problem.
My program will still be installed on your device and I still will own your
masturbation videos.
Police will not catch me anyway. I know what I am doing.
I do not live in your country and I know how to stay anonymous.

Don't ever try to deceive me - I will know it. My program is recording all
the websites you visit and all your key presses.
If you try to trick me - I will send this ugly video to everyone you know,
including your family members.

Don't forget the potential shame - your life can be a disaster.

I am waiting for your Litecoin payment.
You have 72 hours left.

Anonymous Hacker

P.S. If you need more time to buy and send me Litecoin (LTC), open your
notepad on your device and write '48h more'. Only this way you can contact
me.
I will consider giving you more time before I release the video, but
only when I see that you are really struggling to buy and send Litecoin. I
know you can afford it - so do not trick me.

I get a half dozen of that type of message every week.

Haven't gotten one asking for Litecoin. Haven't gotten one providing for "more time."

I would love to know how many people (men) with guilty consciences are actually ponying up with hush money for these scams. The more I hear about these scams the more I wonder about trying one myself.

I may not actually be a nice person.

Well how do you feel, knowing that this elite hacker is currently releasing your masturbation videos for the world to see since he knows you posted here by following your keystrokes?

I think I'm safe for now, he said I had 72 hours, and since I don't have a Notepad app on my Mac, I used a real note pad and pen and wrote "48h more" on it. I also wrote "WTF is a Litecoin" so that he would know that I'm struggling.

And I'm sure all of my friends and family will enjoy watching a video of me watching a YouTube video of how to remove a MBP Retina battery without removing the logic board. Or the two hour documentary about Voyager 1 and 2 that I recently watched.

Whatever happened to all of the Nigerian princes with money transfer problems.

It might not be a bad thing. Having a masturbation video released without his permission certainly didn't hurt Joel Dommett*.

Joel Dommett Deals With His Sex Tape Leak by Laughing About It | This Morning (UK morning talk show interview)- [www.youtube.com]

* Formerly struggling UK comedian who got a big career boost after getting catfished into Skype sex and the video being posted on the #1 pron site.

Edited to add: PSA- Apparently the Electronic Nanny is fine with the word "masturbation" but not the (to my mind) less crude British slang term for same that contains the letters "W", "A", "N", and "K".



Resist the Thought Police- George Orwell's book 1984 was meant as a warning, not a "How To" guide.

Lie to me if you must, but don't lie to me and insult my intelligence in the same sentence.

Wait, you mean those emails are all scams? I've been having trouble finding time to keep refilling my BitCoin and LiteCoin wallets fast enough to keep my videos private!

Thank goodness I can get more time if I can just find my Notepad app!

I get one of these from time to time. They must have really good software to record me from my Mac Mini.
