HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO RECEIVE YOUR FUNDS?

I am Luke Barrow from FBI unit,i have been instructed by our FBI Director Christopher Wray, to inform you that out of our thorough 
investigation lately ,we found out that one of the abandoned valid Packages such as ATM Cards And Consignment Boxes worth $10.5 
million United State Dollars by diplomatic agents who complained that the beneficiaries were not able to provide the anti terrorist
clearance certificate to guide and show that the fund is no way related to fraud or drug money,with the information we have here ,
we found out that one of the funds belongs to you.

And you are meant to report back quick with the fee for the needed certificate(anti terrorist clearance certificate) which is $300 ,
in conclusion you are advised to stop any transaction you are doing now for this fund ,because your fund is now under our custody 
and we will deliver it to you by our self.

Get back to us quick for the information you will use to send the money and also to avoid any more delay on your fund and make sure 
you provide your phone number as well for easy communication.

Luke Barrow

Got this one today, I've been outed!

 

I know elzbieta is your passwords. Lets get directly to the purpose. No one has paid me to investigate about you. You don't know me and you're probably wondering why you're getting this email?
cityba hooperski elzbieta vweigtya hooperski elzbieta kbeafnkoz hooperski elzbieta bayxeqe hooperski elzbieta g hooperski elzbieta ovi hooperski elzbieta kpeupel hooperski elzbieta bbuiuhsoq hooperski elzbieta fuuyw hooperski elzbieta v hooperski elzbieta
Well, i actually installed a malware on the X video clips (sex sites) web-site and do you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what i mean). When you were viewing video clips, your internet browser started out operating as a Remote Desktop with a key logger which provided me access to your screen and web cam. after that, my software collected your entire contacts from your Messenger, social networks, and e-mailaccount. and then i made a double video. 1st part displays the video you were viewing (you have a fine taste ; )), and second part displays the recording of your web camera, and its u.

You will have only 2 possibilities. Why dont we read each one of these possibilities in particulars:

1st alternative is to just ignore this email. as a result, i will send out your video recording to each of your your contacts and then just imagine concerning the embarrassment you experience. Do not forget should you be in an important relationship, precisely how it will eventually affect?

in the second place choice will be to give me USD 998. We are going to describe it as a donation. Then, i will immediately delete your video footage. You can resume everyday life like this never took place and you would never hear back again from me.

You will make the payment by Bi‌tco‌in (if you do not know this, search for 'how to buy b‌itcoi‌n' in Google search engine).

if you may be thinking of going to the authorities, good, this e-mail cannot be traced back to me. I have taken care of my actions. i am also not trying to ask you for a lot, i wish to be paid. i have 7tjD25NKvtqGrY8vNa3 if i don't get the ‌bi‌tco‌in‌, i will certainly send out your video recording to all of your contacts including close relatives, colleagues, and so on. However, if i receive the payment, i will destroy the video right away. If you want to have proof, reply Yup! then i will certainly send your video to your 12 contacts. This is the nonnegotiable offer, and so do not waste my time and yours by responding to this message.

 

 

If any of you nice people have access to Bitcoin, please pay it for me and I'll put a cheque in the post.

I've received that email a number of times now over the past months, both in English and in German.  The first time I got it, it really freaked me out. I've changed all my passwords and my daughter reported it to the police, but I don't think there's a lot they can do. Millions of people world wide have been getting it and the best thing to do is delete it and forget about it and hope they'll leave you alone.

I doubt this is hoop's "passwords". Are you saying that they had your real password, Tap?

The first email I got had my password, but with 2 small mistakes, eventually though, the email started arriving with my exact password, and that really was scary.  Even though I knew I hadn't been watching anything, I still felt a bit violated.  Anyway, my youngest has been dealing with this sort of thing in Uni and she knew what to do.

 

I've no idea how they got hold of my password, but with companies and organisations selling information to others, I guess it's possible.  I have a much more complicated password now and, so far, I haven't gotten the email with the new password.

It's a hassle, but the only way to be safe.  I had the same password on most sites and I hadn't changed it for years, lesson learned

My colleague got the same spam email. At her work email address. It claimed to have used her webcam to spy on her. 

 

Our work computers don’t have webcams. She ignored the email and never heard anything from them again.
