Well, It's been a Year now..

Post by bubbathegimp »

Since somebody from the "C.I.A." sent me an E-Mail informing me that I was under investigation for hosting "Kiddie Porn" on my site,..

He claimed to have high enough security clearance to access, And modify the files to take me off the paperwork.
All for the Grand total of 2.5 Bitcoin (About $10 Grand)

I asked him if he had any Nekkid pictures of
J Edgar Hoover

Still waiting on the Reply....

Anybody else get a similar E-Mail?

obviously you have recognized it as a fake mail.

however one should never reply such mails
instead, it'd be better to report to Cyber Police ..

True, But I couldn't resist mocking the person. figured he probably got the E-mail address from my Domain registration since it included my Domain name..
I don't get a lot of users, so I doubt if he/she/it just happened to stumble on the site..

I'm curious how many other site owners get these kinds of letters, And how common it is...

At least one a day, along with half a dozen informing me that I have been left $x million by some generous benefactor that I have never heard of. Still not seen any of the money but my bank account seems to be empty a lot of the time :o :shock: :?

That lets them know the email address is correct and active and opens the door to tons more spam email.

Everyone gets this stuff all the time. I get ones saying my apple/paypal/netflix account has been suspended pretty much every day. I get offers of looking after large sums of money, various other things like that. Report the phishing ones and ignore the rest.

Send the headers to spamcop.net

I rarely ever get spam due to me being very proactive and reporting to spamcop each and every single time I get one. It may take about five reports, but eventfully they'll stop.

I can assure you if the CIA were on your case they wouldn’t be informing you via email. The first thing you’d know about it would be a ramrod or a halligan removing your front door at 5.45am.

The CIA doesn't operate domestically by law. If anyone is going to beat down your door it could be the local authorities, city, county, or state. Or the FBI, ATF, DEA, or US Marshals. The secret service would liaison with local and federal authorizes.

Just by reading that email subject line tells me it's BS. Even so, law enforcement doesn't send you an email like that and will NEVER send you an email like that or call you like that either.

If you were under investigation for child porn you'd most likely never know it. Your contact with law enforcement will be to serve a warrant.

And J Edgar Hoover was an FBI director, not a CIA director.

The FBI does work internationally and domestically. But the CIA can only operate internationally.

If you are in another country and are wanted, it will be the FBI to get you. If your country shares an extradition treaty with the U.S., the FBI can nab you.

Got another old scam E-Mail this week (Twice)
This time it's the old leaked password intimidation Scam...
They sent it twice to make sure I got it....
Instead of replying to it, I just forwarded it to my local FBI Field office. People do realize that the FBI investigates Cyber Crimes...

I was considering using Guerilla mail to have some fun, But I refrained for now. Not sure if the scammer could trace it back to me using his "Unique" e-mail address. .. Still tempted...Havent used that password in quite a while...

upwfag@alcoaza.com (This is a paste of the E-mail link)

"I am aware, (censored), is your password. <( I edited this)

I need your full attention for the next Twenty-four hours, or I will make sure you that you live out of guilt for the rest of your lifetime.

Hello, you don't know me personally. However I know a lot of things regarding you. Your present fb contact list, mobile phone contacts as well as all the virtual activity in your computer from past 132 days.

Consisting of, your masturbation video clips, which brings me to the primary motive why I am writing this e-mail to you.

Well the previous time you visited the porn webpages, my spyware was triggered in your computer which ended up saving a lovely video clip of your masturbation act by triggering your cam.
(you got a exceptionally weird taste by the way lol)

I have got the whole recording. In the case you feel I 'm messing around, just reply proof and I will be forwarding the recording randomly to 10 people you know.

It might end up being your friend, co workers, boss, parents (I'm not sure! My software program will randomly select the contact details).

Would you be capable to look into anyone's eyes again after it? I doubt it...

But, it does not need to be that path.

I want to make you a 1 time, no negotiable offer.

Buy $ 2000 in bitcoin and send it on the below address:

18sqV*dBQMbHDTdQtyK3iPYSNKxVqtY5jrq
[CASE SENSITIVE, copy & paste it, and remove * from it]

(If you do not understand how, look online how to acquire bitcoin. Do not waste my valuable time)

If you send this 'donation' (why don't we call it that?). Right after that, I will go away for good and never ever get in touch with you again. I will remove everything I have in relation to you. You may proceed living your current regular day to day life with absolutely no concern.

You've 1 day in order to do so. Your time will begin as quickly you check out this e mail. I have got an unique code that will inform me as soon as you read this mail therefore don't try to play smart."

(Ive never owned a webcam BTW, and I turned off my facebook account a while back, Nice try though)
