Sextortion is back! In fact, it never went away. Some of us get dozens of sextortion scam emails every month to our work and personal accounts.
I got this email today. It says “I hacked your device, because I sent you this message from your account.” It goes on to claim that it has filmed me.
Scammers are sending people emails with one of their old passwords in the subject line, claiming they've hacked their webcam and asking for bitcoin in say they will reveal your adult-website habits and send video of you to.
