This message is dated Wednesday 3rd October 2018 for Maidenhead.



FIRST:  Those people that may have received a first threatening email re visiting Porno sites, Marion has now received a second.  The computer which generates these scam emails, is obviously going through the listings again !


Please be reassured, no-one will believe that you have been on a porno site - this is a scam:


Hi Jeff,


Since their first threatening email, I've now received another.  This time, asking for a larger sum of money.


I am a 76 year old widow and do not, not, visit porn sites !!


After their first threat, I changed my password in all my contacts.  This was never ever used on Facebook, Messenger anyway?


Please circulate.


Thank you.



I have set the wording out so that you will recognise these emails if they arise.


If you get one, rest assured it is a scam - so




‘Very first alternative is to dismiss this e-mail. As a result, I most certainly will send out your videotape to every one of your contacts and thus just think regarding the shame you will definitely get. Do not forget if you are in an important relationship, how this will affect ?


In the second place solution is to give me $4000. We are going to refer to it as a donation. In this situation, I will instantly remove your videotape. You could continue your way of life like this never occurred and you would never hear back again from me.


You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search for "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).


BTC Address: 18G1edtsQwHJh8XYcN9e6Cdua3kaev38jv [case-sensitive, copy & paste it]


If you are looking at going to the law enforcement, very well, this e mail cannot be traced back to me. I have dealt with my steps. I am also not looking to ask you for so much, I only want to be paid.


You now have one day to make the payment. I have a unique pixel within this mail, and right now I know that you have read this email message. If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send your video to all of your contacts including close relatives, coworkers, etc. Nonetheless, if I do get paid, I will erase the video right away. If you want to have proof, reply Yeah! & I will send your video to your 10 contacts.
