Type of a scam Other
I received an e-mail on April 23, 2020 with a subject line which included one of my passwords from the past. They said I had visited an adult porn site (I had not) and they used the camera to record me. They threatened to send a video to all of my friends of me in a compromising position. They wanted me to send them USD 2000 in bitcoin. They said to send it to 12gUbSupDtypKQMexzPNw5YuCFDVA2wEqG within 24 hours. I would not have worried, but since they had one of my passwords, I was afraid they had others and could get into my accounts.
I did not send them anything. I went to the police in my city and told them of this scam. They did not want a copy of the e-mail but just told me to delete it and to block the sender. I received 3 or 4 additional e-mails a few days later, but did not open any of them. I just deleted them. These all had the same subject line but with different names at the top. Since I did not open them I don’t know if the e-mail address was the same as the one for Lanna Rothstein or not. They finally gave up sending me emails.
