Today I received a malicious email from someone calling themselves "Truda Kurihara" email "email@example.com"
This is what they wrote.....
I am aware (password) one of your passwords. Lets get directly to the point. Nobody has compensated me to investigate you. You do not know me and you are probably thinking why you're getting this e-mail?
actually, i placed a software on the xxx video clips (pornography) web site and guess what, you visited this website to have fun (you know what i mean). While you were watching videos, your browser initiated functioning as a RDP that has a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your screen and web cam. Just after that, my software program gathered every one of your contacts from your Messenger, social networks, as well as e-mail . and then i made a double video. First part shows the video you were viewing (you've got a nice taste haha), and next part displays the recording of your cam, and it is u.
There are two possibilities. We will read each one of these solutions in aspects:
Very first option is to skip this email message. in this scenario, i am going to send out your actual video recording to all your your contacts and think about the shame you can get. and likewise if you happen to be in an important relationship, just how it can affect?
Latter alternative will be to give me 7000 USD. We will refer to it as a donation. Subsequently, i will without delay remove your video footage. You will keep going on daily life like this never occurred and you would never hear back again from me.
You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).

if you have been looking at going to the law enforcement officials, very well, this mail cannot be traced back to me. i have taken care of my steps. i am just not attempting to charge a fee a lot, i just like to be paid. i've a unique pixel in this e mail, and right now i know that you have read this e mail. You have one day in order to pay. if i don't get the BitCoins, i will send your video to all of your contacts including close relatives, co-workers, and so forth. Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will erase the recording immediately. if you really want proof, reply with Yeah! and i will send your video recording to your 11 friends. This is the nonnegotiable offer, thus do not waste my time & yours by replying to this mail.
...my question is firstly, has anyone else on this board receive anything like this, secondly is there a way to trace and report this crackpot?

@PJanuszka This had me to sigh a bit... I really miss the times where most discussions were happening on forums.
I still think is likely the best discussion tool we have.
Anyway, I'm glad you are liking it here!
@PJanuszka It has been really wonderful having you. So glad you are enjoying your experience here.
I have been a member here now for a whole day, first impressions..... I like it. I am a member of other forums and I have to say, I don't remember the response I have had in here on any other forum in such a short time, thank you all for the warm welcome.
I am still in learning mode but I am learning fast. I am looking forword becoming a fully fledged TOOTer.
I am a 76 year old pensioner living in southern Turkey. I have tried to get the hang of the language here but learned very little. I was born and bred in England where I spent most of my life up until I retired twelve years ago.
My persuits in life were many and varied including motorcycling fishing (sea and stream) shooting (shotgun and air rifle) and sightseeing by car.
My experience in IT, which seems to be quite popular in here was as a user only but I put it to its best use.
Anyone wishing to be bored further need only ask.
