Today I'm seeing bounces of bitcoin scam mail, with about the same text as in the bitcoin extortion scam of about a week ago, but with a different bitcoin wallet. In the body of the mail the claim is that the criminal hacked the mailbox of the victim and can now send as the victim, but this criminal decided to 'get even' with me at the same time and contradict himself by setting the sender address to my e-mail address. So I'm now browsing the bounces and see the bitcoin wallet for this scam is 1Mjt2xobFExdZBGfjTVDcgzJWQxRxoHBdA which hasn't scammed anyone yet. As always: don't fall for these scams. Earlier items about bitcoin extortion scams: Earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier, earlier (although I think bitcoin is generally a really bad idea and a huge scam) Update 2022-06-24: Some bounces are coming in for the faked messages and these allow me to analyze how the messages were send out. It seems an actual botnet was (ab)used to send out these messages. I'm also seeing DMARC status reports. My e-mail security is working for those places that implement SPF. Update 2022-06-26: I'm amused by reports at Bitcoin Abuse Database: 1Mjt2xobFExdZBGfjTVDcgzJWQxRxoHBdA mentioning the wrong From address as a reason the scammer was being dumb.
