    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Below is the text of the spammy extortion email I mentioned in the shout box today.

    Just a heads up everyone - don't fall prey, be careful.

    Should someone else receive the same, do not be alarmed or give in to the extortion.

    They probably send a gazillion of these out, hoping that just a few will cooperate and pay them.

    I do not normally share such, but this one seemed "more real" - alarmed me at first.

    The alarm did not last long ...
    :look:

    Gimmie a break Miss Destee. You actually had to ponder this scam job? If this was real your first move should have been to call the police and if they have a Cybercrimes unit ask to speak directly to them. Also notify your internet provider then either request they also notify the FCC or you lodge the complaint yourself. Don't waste time calling the FBI as they would only refer you to the local police department and if they felt it deemed Federal intervention that's their call. If this drunken sot actually had the capability he claimed he had he would sent you a capture shot of your own PC video feed. Do you see why 99% of webbers don't do Skype anymore. I completely remove Skype from my PC's, laptops and tablets and I physically disconnect their cameras and microphones. Everything is ethernet, zero WiFi. No Bluetooth either. Every component is hard wired and the nodes are encrypted. I get tons of 419 scam offers and bogus IRS scam threats and as of late Russian and Ukrainian bank account password compromise warnings and marriage offer spam. Cellphone hacking and spoofing is so common nowadays I change my business numbers every 45 days and am getting an Iridiun 9555 satphone with a 200 minute bundle plan for Xmas. Well worth it for the peace of mind. Some say it's overkill but it never hurts to disconnect all your components after a days use and float your passwords like USStratcom does every 24 hours. I mean this did happen? This is not a goof? I've received a lot of crap over the years but nothing like this. You should have back-up drives with everything going into sticks if you feel you have something in it that can mess your PC up. You run a website so you don't need anybody here to tell you that. It's not 04/01/2018, that passed so this is not that but Miss Destee, c'mon. Either way from how this uneducated fool types you know he's Nigerian of the 419 type.

    BTW: I like the Bitcoin thing, that was an especially nice touch.

    Thank you Symbol of America ... :eeek:

    I guess I'm not as savvy as I thought! ... :hide:

    I surely could not explain all that you mentioned above ... :research:

    Oh gosh ... maybe they do have me, on cam, looking at a nekked site ... :tv1:

    I would not go so far as to put this on our beloved Nigerian Sisters and/or Brothers.

    They already get a hard time for any scam looking internet popup.

    Actually, the email address was .ru ... though ... that's not saying a lot.

    Symbol you dun came in and made me feel like I might be nekked on the Internet ... omg! :eeek:

    Wait ... USStratcom ... where can I get that ... Walmart?! ... :lol:

    oh gosh ... why'd I say anything?! ... I'll be hacked for sure now! ... :cry: :cry: :cry:

    For real though ... I'm gonna study all that you've shared ... :)

    Love You and Thanks! :)

    :heart:

    Remote control? That's not good.

    Probably just the cat hitting send send send send send send.

    Get a good night's sleep Miss Destee. You worry too much.
