As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account.
This means that I have full access to your account.

I've been watching you for a few months now.
The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that
you visited.

If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.
Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other
This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and
microphone, but you do not know about it.

I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence.

Why your antivirus did not detect malware?
Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours
so that your antivirus is silent.

I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the
screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.
With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and
contacts on social networks.
I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers
that you use.

If you want to prevent this,
transfer the amount of $754 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how
to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").

My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1GoWy5yMzh3XXBiYxLU9tKCBMgibpznGio

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never
hear me again.
I give you 48 hours to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see
this letter.

Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot
be tracked like my bitcoin address.
I do not make any mistakes.

If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video
will be immediately distributed.

Best regards!
