New Zealand police remind public to be alert to email scams that blackmail Bitcoin

After receiving multiple reports of scammers threatening the public, the New Zealand police reminded the public to be alert to email ransomware scams. Police said the scammer had been sending emails to the victims, saying that his computer had been hacked. They also told the victims that they had leaked videos of pornography through webcams and threatened that if they did not pay $ 1900 in Bitcoin, they would send the video to family and friends. The scammers claimed to know the victim ’s password and showed the real password they used, which was published online in the previous data breach. The police said anyone who received the email should delete it.
