Update on Spam

I got my first spam email sent to the address on the left, and it is a doozie. Erin the anonymous hacker promises to send a very inappropriate video of me to all my contacts if I do not provide $2000 worth of bitcoin in the next 72 hours.

At the very least, look up the definition of anonymous. I do not assume Erin is your real name, but it is a name nonetheless.

I do find it amusing that this must work on somebody, otherwise they would not try. Imagine remembering that you did whatever they say they have video of you doing, and believing that your webcam caught you doing it, AND a hacker had access to the cam and all your contacts. At that point, you probably deserve to lose 2 grand.
