    I'm sure those legal problems can be resolved easily, for a small fee of course.

    Likely. I find it uncongenial to talk to people on the phone who called me without knowing my name. Especially if they are talking about money.

    I don't talk much on the phone, but I feel the same way about people who send me email asking for my email address.

    I think it would be within etiquette here to refuse to give it to them on the ground that they sound like the sort of people who might misuse it. And cc yourself on the email for surety.

    Somewhat similar to a post by Asterix above. I can't decide if it's a pubic service message or extortion.

    Hi!

    I will be direct. You visit 18+ sites often and I caught you matsurbating. Well, we all do it sometimes. How I did this? Your router was vulnerable I was able to inject some code into the firmware and every device connected on the network including phones were compromised. Then I simply set every device available to record with the camera only when you visit 18+ sites. In this moment your router firmware was upgraded by the manufacture so there will be no problems in the future. Also you must to reboot every device in order for my code to be dumped from the memory on each device because is still active.

    Anyway, I got also your contacts lists, phone numbers, emails, social media contacts and here is the deal. If you don`t pay me 500 dollars worth in Bit C0in, the video with you doing... you know what, will be send to all your contacts.

    Amount: 0.06 BTC (approximately)

    My Address Part 1: 1gEfuE9AeRZayCfbRiQbPRsEvg2

    My Address Part 2: DZfGCT

    Important! My address was split in 2 parts, you must to put the parts together with no spaces between them manually using Copy and Paste. The final result after the parts are glued(Part 1+Part 2) is my final address where you send the coins. You may also save that somewhere to not lose the details.

    Quick tip! You can buy Bit C0in from Paxful. Use Google to find it.

    Also search for what is No Fap and read about the benefits of no PMO. Watching dirty stuffs is a waste of time, energy and minerals from the body. I hope you will think about this very seriously.

    In case you wonder why your anti viruses were not triggered is because my code is not set to steal passwords, PIN codes and other stuffs. The only function is to record with the cameras(in slient mode) and grab the contacts, and any system protection see this activity as normal. I know that you have that amount of money that is requested. So don`t worry about your passwords, bank accounts and so on, however for your mind peace, go ahead change them.

    You have 72 hours (3 days) to send the payment. When coins are sent, the video with you doing... you know what be destroyed and you will never hear from me.

    Next time cover your cameras, somebody may watch! Limit yourself to one time per month if you can`t go completly NoFap.

    This message was scheduled to be sent multiple times.


    "Matsurbating?"

    Out of curiosity, what form or format is the perp's email address in and why?

    The address given is the perp's BC wallet ID. You hook the 2 parts together.

    The scams just keep repeating

    In the 90s, it was a plastic ball filled with water; substitute rocks for the water and get a new scam.

    The UK-based game developer Rockstar North hasn't paid corporation tax in a decade despite scoring billions in revenue.

    A report from the investigative thinktank TaxWatch UK estimates Rockstar Games’ operating profit at $5bn (£4bn) between 2013 and 2019, during which time the company released Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) and Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar North is part of Rockstar Games. ... But the company paid no corporation tax between 2009 and 2018. It received £42m in tax credits from the government’s video games tax relief scheme, which was set up in 2014 to bolster the UK’s £5bn games industry, much of which is made up of small and medium-sized developers. The sum is equivalent to 19% of the total relief paid to the entire UK games industry since 2014, TaxWatch reports.

    The fact that they've claimed public funds while (legally) avoiding taxation really drives the point home.

    A model version of this wheeze:

    Company A is in Nation X. Company B is in Nation Y. Company B agrees to pay Company A $10m for the rights to Company A's intellectual property. Company B makes $5m on the resulting product. Company B owes $10m, so it reports a loss to Nation Y's taxman. Company A never gets the $10m it's owed, so reports a loss to Nation X's taxman.

    The twist: Company B is owned by Company A, and may even trade under the same damn name.

    The giveaway is the charge denominated in naira.
    There are quite a few scam scientific journals now. They prey on university people in emerging countries who need publication and are not likely to hit a major journal. This seems like a version of the same thing.

    I'm still trying to figure this one out.

    I've been getting four or five telephone calls a day that give me a dead line when I pick up. The set displays a Virgin Mobile logo and an 866 number. Eventually I called back to get them to leave me alone. The number goes to what seems like a genuine customer assistance operation, with the usual rigamarole "Press 1 for English, press 2 for French, this call may be recorded...etc." I get a person eventually and have what seems to be a normal conversation until they ask for my name, which I won't give..."you called me. My number is displayed on your screen. If you don't know who I am, stop calling. If you do, tell me what it is about." At this point they hang up.

    Could be a Spoofed caller ID.

    Yes, the number is probably spoofed. Also, if it is to an iPhone rather than to a landline, there is a FaceTime flaw on iOS (patched now AFAIK) that allows callers to very easily (call you and then use the group call feature to add themselves to the call again) eavesdrop on you via your iPhone’s microphone while waiting for you to answer. It allows them to see through your iPhone’s camera if you hit the lock or volume button instead of answering. I have noticed a lot of FaceTime calls probing for this vulnerability recently. As soon as they fail to get the audio, they abandon the call, so they manifest themselves as missed FaceTime calls from unrecognised numbers.

    Yes, but if it is they have a pretty elaborate scam going. First make a call that can't be answered, but leaves a credible callback number, then spoof a full-on customer support operation (maybe not as hard as all that, actually).

    No, if the number has been spoofed then you are not calling the original caller, you are calling whatever number they pretended to be calling from, which might very well be a legitimate number from a legitimate call centre.

    But why would anyone bother doing that?
