The catch of the week is this little phish, caught courtesy of the advanced white hat technology known as the GMail spam filter.
It’s tone, though courteous, is quite intimidating.

Unfortunately, I have got some bad news for you. Several months ago, I have obtained access to the device you are currently using to browse the internet. Since that time, I have been monitoring your entire internet activity. Being a regular visitor of adult websites, I can confirm that it is your sole responsibility for any consequences. To keep it simple, the websites you were visiting have provided me with access to your data. I’ve uploaded a Trojan horse to the driver system that keeps updating its signature several times per day, in order to make it impossible for antivirus to detect it. Moreover, it provides me with access to your camera and microphone. Likewise, I have backed-up all the data, including photos, social media, chats and contacts. Just recently, I have come up with an awesome idea to create the video in one part of the screen, which shows the way you cum, while the original video was simultaneously playing on another screen. That was really fun! Rest assured that I can easily send this video to all your contacts with a few clicks of my mouse, and I believe that you would like to prevent this scenario from happening. With that in mind, here is my proposal: Transfer the amount equivalent to 1490 USD to my Bitcoin wallet, and I will forget about this whole situation. I guarantee that I will also delete all the data and videos permanently once the payment is received. In my opinion, this is a so-called modest payment for my hard work. You can easily figure out how to purchase Bitcoins with help of search engines like Google or Bing, because that it’s not difficult at all. My Bitcoin wallet (BTC): 1Eo9FKmAkNg8UAR4xj6F15Y53phFutzSys You have 48 hours to reply and you should also bear the following in mind: It makes no sense to reply me — the email address has been generated automatically. It makes no sense to complain either, since the mail as well as my Bitcoin wallet cannot be tracked. Everything has been organized with precision. If I ever detect that you mentioned anything about this mail to anyone – the abovementioned video will be immediately shared, and your entire contacts list will be the first to receive it. Afterwards, the video will be posted on the web! P.S. The countdown timer will automatically start once you open this mail. (This program has a built-in timer). Good luck and take it easy! It was just bad luck, so next time please be more careful.
