Sextortion bitcoin blackmail emails with password

**Interested in the course: https://securitycompliance.thinkific.com

#sextortion has been popping up in my emails lately. It is where scammers use a compromised password to scare you into giving them money. The scare you by telling you that they have some sexual dirt on you.

They tell you they are going to send nude images of you, or evidence of your going to porn sites. They say that they will send this to friends and family unless you give them bitcoin.

This is not real: Don’t give them money Don’t respond Change and accounts with that password

“Nigerian Prince” now wants Bitcoin (scam)

The Nigerian Prince email scam went a little something like this:

You send his highness just a few hundred dollars in exchange for millions.  You could trust him because he was a rich prince, but he had been displaced temporarily.

Well, it is basically the same scam but instead of dollars, they want Bitcoin.

With these scams, you send the money, they disappear.  People are still hearing about these scams for the first time so they are still losing millions over this.

Scam – Dating Site Need Plane Ticket Money

A common scam on some foreign dating sites is for people to ask for money for a plane ticket. They will claim that they are from America or Europe but are stuck in another country so they need your help to come closer to you. They claim that when they get there they will pay you back.

You should know that this is a common scam. Do not fall for it. If you send them the money for the plane ticket, you will not see the again.

How to Identify Scammer Profiles with Google Images

Ever wonder if the person you are talking to on a dating site is real? Their profile looks too good to be true. Their profile pictures are all glamour shots. Or maybe you want to get serious but you just want to be sure that this person is who they say they are.

With this little trick, you can gather more information about who they are just to make sure. Here are the steps:

1. Get their profile picture
2. If you had to screen shot their image, copy it to paint and crop it
3. Upload the image to Google Images
4. Compare the images/information you find with what is is on the dating profile.

Sometimes scammers use the images of musicians/actors/models from their home country. When they do this, it is pretty easy to identify the fakes because it will pop up all over the place. In this video I give you an example of how to do it.

This is a SCAM:

From Desk Of Mr. Carlos Roberto
Fidelity Commercial Bank Kenya
Address: JH A 906 – Thinka Road Nairobi- Kenya
Phone: +254-712-371-370

RE:  $10 Million, ATM Master Card Payment

Dear Fund Beneficiary,

email-scam
This is the 3rd time I am sending you this notification letter regarding to your abandoned ATM Master Card valued sum of US$10 Million and I have not received any positive respond from you or making a suggestion on how you wish to receive your ATM Card. Once again; I am Mr. Carlos Roberto, the new director ATM Head of Operation Bank Of Africa, I resumed to this office on the 15th of December 2015 and during my official research I discovered an abandoned ATM Master card valued sum of $10 Million belonging to you as the rightfully intimate beneficiary.

I tried to know why this card has not been released to you but I was told by the Union management that the ATM CARD was sent From Nigeria to here in Kenya because the director ATM head of operation officers in Nigeria hold your card for his own personal use without knowing that his evil plans towards diverting your fund will be discovered.

Now that your ATM Master card is in Kenya and ready for your receiving, therefore you can come down here to our bank to pick up your card direct from my office or alternatively it can be arranged ship to your address through any registered reliable courier service company that you will take care of the courier charge, hope it is cleared and accepted by you?

I don’t know the courier cost of shipping the card to you but if you permit me and accept the terms, then I can make an inquiry from the courier shipping company to find out the cost, but in that case you will be required to forward to me your address where you want to receive the card to enable me find out the shipping cost to your location.

Your direct telephone number and address will be needed and more details of your ATM card payment will be made known to you as soon as I receive your swift positive response.

Do not hesitate to call me on +254-712-371-370 as soon as you read this mail.

Thanks for your co-operation and i wait for your kind positive respond.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Carlos Roberto
