    It's not even midnight yet and I get the following email:

    Yeah. I know you are a pedophile.
    Actually I know way more about you than you think.

    I am a computer scientist (internet security specialist) with affiliation
    with the Anonymous group.

    Few months ago you downloaded an application.
    That application had a special code implanted purposely.
    Since the moment you installed it, your device started to act like a Remote
    Desktop I was able to access anytime.

    The program allowed me to access your desktop, your camera(s), your files,
    passwords and contact lists. I also know where you live and where you work..

    I was observing you for quite some time and what I have collected here is
    overwhelming. I know about your sexual preferences and your interest in young bodies.

    I have secured 4 video files clearly showing how you mɑsturbate (captured
    from your camera) to young teenagers (captured from your internet browser).
    Glued together is a pretty overwhelming evidence that you are a pedophile.

    The timestamps on the video files indicate the exact time you have been
    mɑsturbating to teenagers:
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.mp4 (112.6 MB)...

    I am not here to judge the morality of your sexual preferences, I am here to
    make money. Because I know you are a wealthy person and that you do care
    about your reputation, I am willing to gίve you a chance to atone and I
    will leave you alone.

    You do know what Bitcoin is, right ?

    You must fund a special address with 5.000 GBP in Bitcoin, otherwise, I am
    going to seƞd those video files to your family members, friends and your
    work buddies.

    I know it may be time consuming to buy 5.000 GBP in bitcoin, so I will gίve
    you exɑctly one week. Search on google 'how to buy bitcoin' and seƞd it to
    me.
    Enough is enough. I have seen enough..

    If you do not Ѕeƞd the bitcoins in one week, I will also Ѕeƞd those
    video recordings to your local police office. Your life will be ruined,
    trust me. Ƭrɑnsfer details are below..

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Ѕeƞd exɑctly:
    0.6327245 BTC

    to my bitcoin address:

    34VsxKUGhkLtWbiXKg5nN5Bu7e4vc6YuEN

    (copy and paste)
    --------------------------------------------------------

    1 BTC is worth 7.922 GBP right now, so Ѕeƞd exɑctly: 0.6327245 BTC.
    Make sure the amounț and address is copied correctly - this way I will know
    the trɑnsfer is coming from you.

    As soon as you seƞd bitcoins, I will remove the videos from my drive and
    remove the software allowing me to access your device.

    If you do not cooperate, I will start seƞding out those videos to people
    you care about.
    Not excluded that after seƞding to one person, I will ask 10x more from
    you. I can make you suffer, trust me.

    Don't even think about going to police. If you try, I will immediately know
    it and I will Ѕeƞd them your mɑsturbation videos, pedo.


    5.000 GBP is a fair price for my Ѕileƞce don't you think?

    You have only one week & better act fast.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Ѕeƞd exɑctly:
    0.6327245 BTC

    to my bitcoin address:

    34VsxKUGhkLtWbiXKg5nN5Bu7e4vc6YuEN

    (copy and paste)
    --------------------------------------------------------


    Do not reply to this email, it's an untraceable one time message.
    I will contact you.

    Remember, I am watching you.

    For an "internet security specialist", the guy doesn't know much. He probably moonlights as a "vindows security" scammer during the day. And his bitcoin wallet is empty.

    People need to be told stories in order to cope with their lives. Terry Pratchett understood that very well. Those stories become their own reality. If you were to remove large chunks of that with your scientific endeavours to nail "truth" to people's breasts, the general populace would go mad and start burning down the joint.

    But maybe that's necessary to long term survival of the species.

    But "scientific truth" IS a story, mythical and ephemeral and interesting. It is "religious truth" that is rigid and boring. If people need rigid and boring in their daily lives, then perhaps we should re-institute serfdom and get some work out of them as well.

    It’s ok. Lie detection is a lie. It’s bullshit. It doesn’t work. It never has. The only purpose lie detection ever served was to appear to work in order to coerce and intimidate the people being questioned. As per the article, the last thing law enforcement agencies and politicians want is a lie detector that might actually work.

    There collective IQ is fine, it's the collective morality that is lacking.

    I just got a very realistic email from "Wells Fargo" advising me that someone had made several attempts to enter my account. I was invited to sign on for more information and advice on how to enhance security. Of course I checked the links which although they contain "Wells Fargo" clearly do not originate with the bank. Many people won't do that and some of those will give their information and get fleeced. I hope there are classes that cover the specifics of this starting in elementary school and continuing into college. Probably there are not many.

    This is a new one for me:



    Hello!

    I am a representative of the Chaos hacking group.
    In the period from 30/06/2019 to 23/09/2019, we gained access to your
    account xxxx@xxxxxx.com by hacking one of the XXXXX.COM mail servers.

    Have you changed your password yet?
    Good! But our program intercepts it every time. And every time I we your new
    password!

    By accessing your email account, it was easy to connect to your device's
    operating system.

    At the moment all of your contacts are known to us. We also have access to
    your messengers and your correspondence.
    All this information is already stored on my pendrive.

    We are also aware of your intimate adventures on the Internet.
    We know that you love adult sites and we know about your sex addictions.
    You have very interesting and unique taste (do you understand what I mean?).

    When browsing these pages, your device's camera turns on automatically.
    What you watch is recorded and saved on our server.

    At the moment, several compromising video recordings have been collected.
    >From the moment you read this letter, after 120 hours, all your contacts in
    this email inbox and in messengers will receive these clips and files along
    with correspondence.

    If you do not want this, transfer 2,000.00 GBP to our unique Bitcoin wallet.


    Send exactly:
    0.26173216 BTC

    to our Bitcoin wallet:

    33ec3bHHcVsxN3rXucM7BbpjD4JcBvCogi

    The address is case-sensitive - copy it.


    As soon as your transfer is confirmed, all your contacts and video recording
    will automatically delete immediately.
    If no money arrives on time, the video and correspondence files will be sent
    to all your contacts.

    You decide ... Pay or live in hell with shame ...

    We believe that this whole story will teach you how to use the gadgets
    correctly!
    Everyone loves adult sites, but you are out of luck.
    For the future - just stick the sticker on your device's camera when
    visiting adult sites!

    Take care of yourself!
