For Your Information

Just in case folks

Stevie Turner

This is a scam that has been going around lately.  I received this email yesterday, but have checked it out on the AskNetSec site as these scams are getting more sophisticated, especially as he had an old password of mine (AskNet gives the answer to this as being from an old site where I had an account that had been compromised), so don’t worry if you receive an email like the one below.  As for the porn sites… well, I think he was definitely groping in the dark there, if you’ll excuse the pun!

My nickname in darknet is ryley58.
I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago,
through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

So, your password from is …(he gave an old password that I had used last year).

  1. You’ve got me worried but luckily my memory is fading. Imagine having the time to try and make money that way but it happens . Quite recently a young man committed suicide because it came to light he exposed himself to someone on the internet .


    1. That one is all too sadly common, people don’t realise how dangerous getting involved sexually on the net can be; even the most innocuous ‘naughty’ site can have hidden traps.
      As for the scammers, well since they probably try and target a large number of people in one go, there is a chance they might contact a very violent crime boss with his own resources to track them down (It was supposed to have happened in Russia some years ago, how much of a urban myth that is I can’t say for certain; there is a grim justice to the tale though)
