Phishing : "You Got Owned" Email


Pseudonym"You Got Owned" Email
Scam contentsFrom: Got You


I know your password!

I infected you with a malware (RAT)/(Remote Administration Tool), some time ago and since then, I have been observing your actions. The malware gave me full access and control over your system, meaning, I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it, yes such things exist, you can Google it!

I have also access to all your contacts, I collected everything private from you, pictures, videos, everything!


I can send this video to all your contacts (email, social network) and publish all your private stuff everywhere!

You can prevent me from doing this!

To stop me, transfer exactly: 400$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.

If you don't know how to get bitcoin, Google - "How to buy Bitcoin", it's very simple for example with credit card. The wallet you can create here:

My bitcoin address is: bc1qn8lf2w0v24uvk7x7epmmftuqyhtlkvf44ng6td

Copy and paste my address - it's (CASE-sensitive).

You know this all isn't a joke, you got the proof above!

I think it's a very good price compared to the damage and hell it can bring into your life!

After receiving the payment, I will delete everything from you and you can life your live in peace like before. I give you 3 days to get the bitcoins!

Don't share this email with anyone, this should stay our little secret!
Comment / ReviewThe "Got you" or the "I hacked you" emails have been around for quite some time. The scammers behind this demand a ransom saying that they got sensitive data from your computer or machine but in reality they don't have any of that, they have nothing.
They're trying to manipulate you using fear tactics.
They send these emails in bulk hoping for a couple of people to fall for it.
Delete the email and don't reply to them or send them anything.
