Ransom email from porn viewing

When you get an email like below, what would you do? Would you worry about it? what if the sender is serious? Is he faking it or is it real?
The shaded text was my password and username. So it got me thinking, was i hacked or my data one of those stolen in those info security breakdowns from several big name web properties? The last time i viewed porn was 209 days ago, never did sex cams ever, so i’m wondering whether this is legit or not. Im sharing this as a caution for everyone. This is one of the ridiculous external remote side effects of pmo, the possibility that someone can blackmail you.



Nevertheless, the deeper issue is whether im scared if I would be found out. The skeleton in my closet. Part of me is not afraid. I think at some level i’ve shared my struggles to a few people close to me already. And ive seen that they still accept me after hearing my story. So yeah, the blackmail somehow loses its effect on me. Just that maybe it would be really uncomfortable to go through for a time.

So scary! :scream:
The best option is go to the police. It’s for your security. They don’t stop. They will always want more.
And, @donkeykong, congrats for your victory. 209 days! :clap::clap::clap::clap:

It’s unconvincing and seems like a scam.
Think about it: If it’s true why not list some of the sites, dates, screen shots, work place, family etc?Only username and password is offered.

Hey bro, it’s unfortunate and sad that you have to go through this. It might be a scam, might not be ( remember that old enemy, Murphy’s law). Better not to take any risk. Going to the police is the right choice but not an advisable one. It may backfire. As I am guessing that you were watching pirated porn. That’s a cyber crime ( I am not trying to scare you even more, just telling you the facts). In some countries, they take this shit very seriously. What I would suggest is try to contact someone who is a ethical hacker (if you have a friend who can help, thats gold). Try to fight fire with fire. These mofos will never stop. They need to be taught a lesson. It is very brave and selfless of you to share these details with this community. I wish I could help. If anybody who is reading this, if you can help our brother out, that would be great. I hope this is just a fake.

It’s a scam
He probably hacked the website or the website sold their database to this guy.
Now he probably has thousand of e-mail, password and so on.
He sent this e-mail to thousand of people to scare them and hoppefully gain money.
Just report him, and move on.
Their weapons are your fear, If you ignore them they move on. They would rather trap Someone and gain money than spend time trying to humiliate you to your contact, and if they do they loose their leverage.
It’s a business.
I already have been a victim to this method, when the person tried to scare me I told him to shut the fuck up and blocked him.
No one of my contacts/friends did receive anything.
They just want you to be scared,

Wow. thanks a lot for all the advice everyone. Will see what I can do.

Put a piece of paper and tape over your webcam everyone!!

A bit of online security tip for everyone, use a password manager (Lastpass, Keepass, etc) to generate and store a random password for every website you signup on, websites and apps get hacked all the time (Even big ones like Yahoo, twitter).
NEVER USE THE SAME PASSWORD TWICE.

Man it’s just a scam , don’t reply to it or anything , they don’t have any proofs photographs or anything. It’s just a bluff ,they send this to thousands. Don’t scare and just ignore this shit. Nothing will happen trust me. And congratulations for the streak, its great. Keep moving you are my motivation I’m on a 36th day of 90 day.

1- I would say it sounds like a scam
2- he is in need of quick money so that means he only threatened you cause he thought you will crack

Don’t reply to him and tell the police simple

Exactly bro, that’s my point

Even if they humiliate you, they know they won’t get any money outta this so they would rather trap another guy

What if password manager gets phished or someone gets your password? You are screwed on all accounts then?

Wondering what happened eventually
