Be aware of email Extortion scam – latest.


Be careful of this Extortion / Sextortion scam?

These scams are made to appear all the more credible because they provide seemingly plausible technical details about how this was achieved, and the phish can sometimes also include the individual’s recognizable old unused password.

Phishes are designed to play on people’s emotions so that they will behave in a way which is out of character, and scams such as this are no different.

The phisher is gambling that enough people will respond so that their scam is profitable; they do not know if you have a webcam, have been visiting adult websites, or the means by which you communicate with people – in short, they are guessing.
