My e-mail account got hacked, received blackmail and I have only two days to pay up!

Forums - General Discussion - My e-mail account got hacked, received blackmail and I have only two days to pay up!

ok, for anyone else (rol is just making a fun thread)
if you need to know if someone is actually using your account to send stuff. get your email headers from the email. put them in this tool to visualize it:
https://mxtoolbox.com/EmailHeaders.aspx


to find the headers:
for google:
https://support.google.com/mail/answer/29436?hl=en

if you use outlook to access the mails:
https://www.technipages.com/outlook-2016-view-message-headers

if you are using something else you should be able to find it by similar method, you can google "how to show email headers"

this is an example of something i sent to myself on my gmail account (scrolled down to the headers part):

it did not get transfered over the internet, since it was from my account to myself, it does not show any information about the sender etc.

this is a legit mail:

you have the sender, the senders IP, if they succeeded some antispam-checks or not. reply addresses.. and so on..

so yeah.. if you get shit and think about paying (not in rol's case.. he just made a funny thread) please check if you are actually hacked or not.. if it shows up as this long trail of different servers etc. it did not come from your own email account, a mail that gets sent to yourself does not get 'stamped' on the internet, it just lands in your mailbox with no other info than you were both the sender & receiver.

Ok, im done..

10/10 would jerk it to the videos that OP's hacker sent me again!

Nothing quite like watching Rol blasting rope to 12 open tabs of Excel ripe with sales data on various canned foods.... I never knew that was my fetish as well.

Out of interest... when you high fived your co worker.... approx how long did it take ye to unstick yer hands?



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Yeah I agree with Bajablo, are you 100% sure that he hacked you? There has been a lot of scams like that going around. I reread your text rolstobbale and I don't think he actually manage to hack you, he is just pretending.

Am I a sexist for assuming that the hacker is a he?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Obvious attempt to qualify for this, but you need to put in more work. Tell us more about this tale woe goes on to finalization (How are you paying a nigerian princess money).

For everyone else: if you are interested in Rols reaction on my mail, I have made a video of it:

Yes. Most of these scams are made by Zinzi December.

Sounds fake because if he hacked your email then why the fuck didn't he change the password. If you can still log on to your email then just change your damn password.  You said you saw you are sender and receiver so that means you have access to the account.

Also, it is good to remind everyone to use a different password for your email accounts.  Most of these "hackers" are lowbies that get username and password with emails lists linked to whatever site that was hacked.  They then plug that info into other sites hoping you used same password.

Well, since you got a raise, you might as well pay the guy. Sounds like you can afford it now.



Considering he helped you get that raise, I think it's fair to give him some money back (either the €1000 or the €3000 and $1000, depending on how high the raise was).

Edit: Damn, Angelus wrote basically the same thing as me, he was just 1 minute faster.

Looking at the most recent replies in your thread, I've put in enough work a few days ago.
