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:

The OP did remind me of this Black  Mirror episode. Can't believe Rol is going to end up fighting a dude to the death in the woods.

Then your imagination is lacking. I have no problem picturing Rol dressed as Lulua throws deadly alchemy at his opponent!

Today I noticed that one of my e-mail accounts got hacked. There was a weird e-mail where my account was both the sender and recipient, and it started with the hacker pointing that fact out as proof of his success. He also told me that it would be pointless to contact the provider of the e-mail service or the police, because he has covered his tracks so well that they wouldn't be able to find him. I was pretty scared when I read that, because his German was so broken that I imagined he must be the kind of super tough guy who went through second grade in elementary school four years in a row before he got kicked from the school and needed to learn how to survive on the streets.

The hacker's e-mail continued by making me aware that he knows my browser history, plus he planted a tool on my computer that allows him to control my webcam. He alluded that I should know where this is going, but I was actually stumped. I read on and he began to talk about websites that host adult entertainment, congratulating me for my great taste. I felt pretty good about myself at that point, because a compliment was something that I didn't expect; this hacker might not be a bad guy, after all.

But then he said that he created videos that show both what I was watching and also a feed of myself while I was watching adult content. He demanded that I pay him €1000 in bitcoins within the next two days, otherwise he will send the videos to my relatives as well as colleagues at work. I vaguely remembered reading about people from Nigeria years ago. African people who do this kind of malicious stuff, hence why it is called blackmail.

In my attempt to get the money ready, I immediately undusted my NES and hooked it up to an old CRT TV to play Super Mario Bros. 3. While I had a great time with the game, I felt that I was doing something wrong after about an hour. Every time I had collected 100 8-bit coins, the counter reset to 0. I went back to read the e-mail again for better instructions, only to experience two shocking revelations: The e-mail was already two months old and there were another three of the same kind in the following seven weeks. What can I say, I don't check this specific e-mail account very often.

So now I am unsure how much money I actually owe to the hacker. In the second and third e-mail, he wanted another €1000 each. In the last one he asked me for $1000, this time the whole message was written in English. Does he now want dollars instead of Euro, or do I have to pay him €3000 and $1000?

Thinking about this whole situation made me realize that it might be connected to events that confused me in recent times. Last month I got a strange phone call from my mom where it sounded like she was crying and she mumbled that I should know that she will always love me, no matter what. About two weeks ago one of my male colleagues at work walked towards me with a big grin on his face and gave me a high-five, saying that I should keep the fantastic recommendations coming. Two female colleagues seem to actively avoid eye contact with me. My boss granted me the raise that I had been asking for since November of last year.

Thoughts?

Dude this exact thing happened to me a few months back, same threat,  i have videos of you etc etc. I just ignored it. Nothing happened. I was told they would post to my facebook etc, never happened. id say its just a prince in Nigeria trying some new way of getting money



I don't get it.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

It's a scam. My wife went throughout the same thing or awfully similar. He has nothing on you. And if there is something, own up to it so no one else can use it against you. Back to my wife, I knew something was fishy when the "hacker" said to click on a link to view captured pics from her laptop webcam when she was engaged in "illicit" activity. He was only trying to get her to click on the link to open a portal to her laptop. Just tell the guy to "Do your worse and FUCK YOURSELF." And walk away. If this also helps, her laptop was issued by the university she works. This happened during the weekend, and I told her it was a scam. IT verified it the next Monday.

Delete email address and create a new one



Reset your password, delete the email and get on with your life.

The bot sending the emails is looking for someone dumber than you !!!



It's fake.  Spoofed email that has you both the sender and receiver does not at all mean your email was hacked.  I have gotten these emails.  Right down to the detail about a web cam (that I don't have).  Have told them to fuck off with zero problems.  

Also, this is another troll isn't it?

Rule of thumb: If you have to ask, it probably isn't.



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

Wow, I'm surprised by the number of people taking this seriously. I'd have thought this being a Rol thread would have instantly made people realise it wasn't serious



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
