I don't even have a web cam. You can ask my wife.

This one's been going around for years now. My mom even got it recently. It's really dumb.

If more people knew how to look at and understand email headers this wouldn't be a problem.

Also, if you're really worried.

I'm with her now, making movies. Said something about you getting off Fark, making dinner. Gotta go, part 3

I've always wanted to respond that if they didn't transfer me bitcoin, I would spam their email with videos of me masturbating.

I got this scam email. Who the hell keeps a camera pointed at them and plugged in while fapping?

Romulan porn is banned by the Federation. Just like Romulan Ale.

...sigh.... the world will end, not with a bang, but in a series of waves of incredible stupidity.

I read these stories, and my faith in humanity is shaken... thank god for my boys... It's Mother's Day, and my two boys are cooking a nice dinner for their mom and my grandson's mom. Let's just make it through this day.

Hard to use and nasty glue residue.

These are like 3 for seven bucks. I gave one to each of my nieces, mother, and wife.

Slide open, slide closed.

"The one with the girls and the cup or the one with the latin hunkabeast and his black companion? Yeah, the one about putting the peanut butter inside the chocolate. HAHA! Trick question. All my porn is nude LARPing"

Bring the cringe people. Make their souls work for that money.

Or a band aid. That works too.

The pad keeps adhesive residue of the lens.

The police "believe" this scam has been around for a while?

Not a great endorsement of their fraud division.

A hint for Farkers: If you not only use different passwords for each service & site you use, but also track when you change those passwords (on a regular basis, I hope...), you can narrow down whose database was hacked, and a timeframe for that hack, with which you can report to that site & other folks, like the FBI IC3.

Or, just use a Post-It. This costs money, can't be used on computers you don't own, and is just as effective as a trimmed Post-It note stuck over the camera.

You mean the one where they use some decade old password? Maybe people should learn to change their password on occasion or at least follow breaches on a service like haveibeenpwned.

I use an after market web camera that when not being used is pointed at the ceiling.
All in all though, this sounds like a good time to send some scammer a dick pic.

Pfft, it's not the camera, it's the mic that they use!

Jokes on them. All of my contacts already have video of me jacking it. Happy Mother's Day!

If someone had watched me masturbate then they would be too busy barfing to extort me.

I'm suspicious of anyone who doesn't watch porn at this point

Ain't nothing else to do during quarantine.

I got this a few years ago, they included a password that was supposed to give it an air of authenticity that they had indeed hacked my computer.

Only problem is the password was for one specific website, i hadn't used it (or the password)  in well over a year and I had no Webcams on any of my systems (by intent). Oh and I don't watch porn and never have.

Aside from that, the grammar and spelling was spot on.  It looked good, easily one of the best scam attempts I've seen.

They just film you moaning when you look at your 401k statement online.

A video of my face watching porn would be indistinguishable from my face doing anything else

Non omnia possumus omnes, I suppose.

I didn't know my state had one, I guess because it's on the other side of the state both ways, almost at the border off New York.

Well, they would have illegal footage of me, at home, performing completely legal activities.

Anyone wants to see my junk, go for it.

Make sure you bring some brain bleach with you first though, because you won't be unseeing it.
 
2020-05-10 5:54:19 PM  
I get similar scam emails at work from time to time. I just delete them, of course.
