I got the same one some time ago. I too have never had a webcam on any computer that I have owned.

I am in the market for a webcam to put on the big screen tv in the main room so that my mother can do her
church meetings using zoom on the htpc . I don't like it but at least I am not as paranoid as my uncle is. he had the satellite tv removed from his house years ago because he thought the government was watching him with it.

Certain emails usually arrive to those who visit certain sites assiduously and without precautions, I mean.

An example is my Boss, one day he calls me alarmed and really scared for the same reason, I spent many hours in the office computers to sanitize the environment despite I pointed out to him that there were no webcams.

And there was nothing to sanitize at the end of the day. :o

I finally asked him, but how the hell do you think you can get these emails?

He said that when his wife's not around, he actually has a little bit of fun.

The little game cost him anyway, my fee for lost time. :geek: :lol:

My aunt got a similar email with one of her passwords attached. It was a scam of course.
