That scam has been going around the net for months now. I'm surprised it took this long for it to reach you. I've received two of these so far.
It seems the scammers are buying lists of email addresses that are pretty old. Given the examples I received I expect the 2013 Adobe breach was the source of mine. (I considered replying to mine and asking how he activated the webcam on a computer that doesn't have a webcam.) I found it interesting to peruse https://www.reddit.com/r/Scams/comments/8gsjba/the_blackmail_email_scam/ and watch the "evolution" of the blackmail letter over time. It really does evolve like a bacteria or something. -- Mark Roberts - Photography & Multimedia www.robertstech.com -- PDML Pentax-Discuss Mail List PDML@pdml.net http://pdml.net/mailman/listinfo/pdml_pdml.net to UNSUBSCRIBE from the PDML, please visit the link directly above and follow the directions.
