A new approach to blackmail

Post by ed » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:51 am

Got this on my business account
Good day.
Dо not mind оn my illiteracy, I аm from Japan.

I uрlоаded the maliciоus рrоgrаm on yоur system.

Sincе that mоmеnt I pilfеred аll privy bасkgrоund from yоur system. Additiоnally I hаvе sоmе mоrе comрromising еvidence. Thе mоst intеresting evidenсe thаt I stоle- its a videotаpe with yоur masturbation. I adjusted virus оn а porn web site and aftеr yоu lоаdеd it. Whеn you decided with the vidео аnd taрреd on a рlay button, my dеlеtеriоus soft at onсе sеt up оn your systеm. After adjusting, your сamеra shооt thе vidеotaре with you self-abusing, in аddition it saved prесisеly the pоrn video yоu mаsturbated on. In next fеw dаys my mаlwаre collесtеd all yоur social аnd work cоntaсts.

If you wish to destroy the videotape- send me 250 euro in BTC(cryptocurrency).
I provide you my Btc wallet address - 1WHZcT6wm65LzMwD7udDDXV4pmGQwMduX
You have 12 hours to go from this moment. If I see transfer I will eliminate the videotape in perpetuity. Other way I will forward the record to all your friends.
:D

They mistook me for Lister.

What's with the weird writing? Google translate will do a much better job.

Criminals are so lazy.

Where the fuck did he find a videotape? That's so 1900's.

How did he mistake you for Trump?

As a somewhat experienced reader of Engrish, I think almost certainly not.

I like that the presumably Japanese extortionist expects his American victim to pay a Euro amount of Bitcoin.

Maybe your kids are fucking with you.

Who knows. But it does resemble Japanese English (which I encounter every day in my job, so I'm probably as much of an expert on Japanese English as anyone)

The way he says "soft" instead of "software" is a Japanese thing. No native English speaker would abbreviate software to just soft, but the Japanese do.

Long list of similar examples here: https://nexusconsultancy.co.uk/blog/ema ... -yourself/.

I extract this, which is perhaps true:
A guy
December 11th, 2017

Obviously this is a scam and the email can be safely discarded. This guy used feeburner to send the message so that it wouldnt get caught by gmails spam filter (notice how he also intentionally spells it ‘malvware’).
So I decided to have a little fun when I received this and actually contacted the scammer saying I needed help on sending him the bitcoins and got him to agree to a skype chat. He even called me for voice chat which I recorded – he sounded about 12 years old…either that or he’s a ladyboy and the hormones have affected his voice.
Anyway, this of course exposed his IP address which he was too n00b to even hide and I traced it to Aries telecom in Malaysia.
I told him that Id spoken to Aries who were dumb enough to fall for giving me his account address and sent him screenshots of the email, the IP address, the live chat with Aries and also said that Id contacted the RMP (Royal Malaysian Police) and given them his details and proof of his activities.
He then immediately typed ‘fuck u’ and blocked my (fake) skype account from contacting him.
