Make sure you activate 2 factor authentication wherever possible, deep scan your PC then change your passwords.

1. Have had several of these, always one password that was part of an international data breach sometime ago (like Linkedin or Playstation Network). Had changed the pwd ages back when notified of the data breach so I know the emails were just phishing attempts.
As said already, if they had video of you spanking the monkey they'd do more than just give a few vague threats.... :lol:

2. WTF is a 'scissoring video' ?? :?

AlienZed, I've had the same email, again part of my password was included, but not shown case sensitive either;

not sure how they managed to get part of my password, I've not changed it... they gave me 3 days too, I took no action... and I'm still here :rofl: :poke:

They told me they had pics of me looking at porn, which I don't do (honest guv)... so the threat was a little futile anyhow!
