2021-10-09 A long bitcoin extortion scam 1 week ago
Cybercriminal This time the scammer / fraud / criminal tries using a lot of text to convince victims to pay bitcoins.

Using bitcoin address bc1qtzqgwqe3cd4cnv26vawxvfg3kr09r0jv53p8nw where it shows this one is already known and no money has been lost.

A bit of a sample, showing that the scammer has some imagination and a good grasp of English:
During the pandemic outbreak a lot of providers have faced difficulties in
maintaining a huge number of staff in their offices and so they have decided to
use outsourcing instead.
While working remotely from home, I have got unlimited abilities to access the
user databases.

I can easily decrypt passwords of users, access their chat history and online
traffic with help of cookie-files.
I have decided to analyse users traffic related to adult websites and adult
content.

My spyware functions as a driver. Hence, I can fully control your device and
have access to your microphone, camera, cursor and set of symbols.
Generally speaking, your device is some sort of my remote PC.
Since this spyware is driver-based, then I can constantly update its
signatures, so that no antivirus can detect it.
While digging through your hard drive, I have saved your entire contact list,
social media access, chat history and media files.
Earlier items about bitcoin extortion scams: Earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier (although I think bitcoin is generally a really bad idea and a huge scam)

Update 2021-10-13: As not enough money is coming into this wallet the scammer tries again. Same address, demanding an amount equivalent to $1150 (USA Dollars). As the mail comes from some random ISP in Chili I think the criminal is somewhere else on this planet.
