The first time spam pisses me off

There seems to be a new method to extract money via spam. This is the mail I got today:

Hi there.

I hope you will not really mind my english language sentence structure, because im from Germany. I toxified your gadget with a malware and now have your private information out of your os.

It previously was installed on a mature web site and then you’ve selected the video clip and it, my software quickly got into your os.

After that, your camera captured you going manual, furthermore i captured a footage that you have viewed.

Soon after a short while in addition, it picked up every one of your device contact information. If you ever wish me to get rid of your all that i have – transfer me 840 euros in bitcoin it is a cryptocurrency. It is my wallet address: 1K5CPpzHABZ7JXYDC7JRjok2a2FAerks6L

At this point you have 21hours. to make a decision The minute i will get the transfer i will eliminate this evidence and every thing thoroughly. Otherwise, please remember that this evidence is going to be forwarded to your friends.

I like how the domain it comes from is registered with an organization called “Volatile Game Cult”, and the IP it came from is of course Russian and I guess the wallet was opened just for this e-mail since it has no transactions yet.

I wonder what I can do because reporting it to the authorities will do exactly nothing I guess. I kind of dare to answer with something like “lol” and wait for the response. But should I do that or are there any dangers that might come with it? Mmm…

  1. I got this several times now.

    Never answer to spam. When you answer, they know this is an active email address. The less they know, the better. Right now your email address is one among countless others.
