I got a scary, yet interesting email this morning. The email told me that the person was in possession of a Porn Movie of me. They said I had two options. I could either pay them $7000.00 and they would not do anything to publicize this Porn Movie, or if I didn’t pay they would send it to all my contacts.
I felt very uncomfortable about this. I have never been threatened like this before. I thought about it and decided to call my Internet Provider.
The young man said it was a Phishing Scam, and to block the address on my Spam filter and then completely delete the message.
While I was speaking to the young man, Jack piped in “How come I’ve never seen this movie?”
Both the Technician and I burst out laughing! The Technician said I had just made his day!
It leaves me feeling uncomfortable though. This wasn’t your usual Phishing Scam. This was a downright threat. All I could think was, “What is this world coming to?”
