Save You Scam – Ignore the Your Computer Was Infected and Now Pay Me Blackmail Scam

Security, Spam Hall Of Shame

Here is a pretty decent cyber blackmail scam that can probably get the best of folks.

It is in a form of a blackmail via email stating they infected your PC, stole your personal info and recorded you on your webcam and for proof they provide a real password you have actually used  (or still do).

The blackmail comes into play as they are requesting you pay them via bitcoin or else they will send out the webcam recorded video(s) and all personal information. **DON’T FALL FOR THIS SCAM**





Yes, it is a real password that they include in the subject line along with “save you” verbiage. It truly is a password that you may have used and probably tied to the email account your receiving the email to.

But how did they get your info? Easy, with all the data breaches that have happened in the past several years, our data, including passwords have been leaked into the dark-web for crappy folks to buy and try to use and take advantage of folks just like this.

They are leveraging old data to promote fear into falling for the scam. Do note, if you still use the password they listed in the email for ANYTHING, go and change any accounts that are still using that password just for best practice.

So we want to provide this information to protect yourself. Here is the word for word mailing that you may receive. Hoping you are finding this from searching, ultimately protecting yourself from these malicious folks who are too lazy to work for the money.
