    Kiwibiker Sextortion Scam

    Not as bad as it sounds. Noticed when I logged into KB last night that I had to actually login with my password instead of just diving straight in which was unusual. Didn't think much of it though.

    Today however, we received an email demanding $2000 in bitcoin or my unsavoury internet habits would be plastered across the monitors of the world. Scam of course but it was addressed to me using my KB password in the subject line and KB is the only place I use that old password so I'm guessing my details were harvested from the KB server yesterday along with my e-mail address which is also on KB underneath my password. Just a heads up then that you may also receive one of these e-mails but no need to go out and buy $2000 bitcoin. https://www.netsafe.org.nz/faketortian-email-scam/

    Text of the e-mail follows for your amusement:

    Apparently Easter and ANZAC Day are the worst days for this sort of e-mail scam in NZ. Be careful out there. (Oh, and Mrs Oakie has covered the webcam apperture on our PC now).

    I got the same email today, password I haven't used in years on it

    Is Philippino, amputee, dwarf porn really a weird preference ?

    I just looked in my spam folder to see how many I get.. I have like, 20 come in during the last 2 days using passwords harvested from data breaches that I havent used for years.. even an old myspace one.

    I doubt it has anything to do with needing to enter your password though, if it was, I'd be more concerned you have had a keylogger installed on your end.

    Nope, never acknowlege them is the standard advice from cyber security people.

    Regardless of that, some people think they're going to have a bit of fun with the scammer.

    These kinds of email are unlikely to come from a legit email address, no reply is going to get to anyone involved.

    When some dummies stick money in the supplied bitcoin account, that's all the reply the spammer gets.

    Of course.

    Nothing I wrote was against that advice.

    Geez. I once got an email from a lawyer. To my email address at one of NZ's biggest IT companies.

    He was all "Blaa blaa I forwarded your email to the police and they are investigating. Don't ever send me spam again blaa blaa."

    Of course, my email as "sender" was spoofed and came from whatever source of addresses the spammer was using to send to.

    Dummy didn't have a clue. Bet he gets paid more per hour than I do.

    My response was to illustrate that, unlike you, netsafe believe there is a legit email address behind it and a reply would get someone involved.
