About the “Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you” email scam

“Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you” email scam falls into the sextortion scam category because it threatens to release nonexistent private videos of users watching pornography if users do not agree to pay $1750. While the email may seem alarming, its contents are all fake.



“Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you” email scam is a very basic sextortion scam. It follows the same pattern as the majority of other sextortion scams. The sender first tries to scare recipients with alarming subject lines like “You have an outstanding payment”. If users open this email, they are immediately greeted with an even more alarming message saying that access to their devices has been granted to the email sender.

Supposedly, the sender bought access to the recipient’s email account, which allowed them to trick the user into clicking on a link. This, according to the email, allowed the sender to install malware onto the user’s computer, which led to the sender being able to remotely turn on/off the camera/microphone. Supposedly, this allowed the sender to make a video of the user watching pornography, with the user on one side and the video they were supposedly watching on the other. They also claim to have stolen the user’s contacts and threaten to send the video to all contacts if a payment of $1750 is not made.

For users not familiar with sextortion scams, this type of email may seem alarming. The email is written in a very mocking way, to cause shame to the user and pressure them into making a payment. In some cases, even users who have never even visited a pornography website may be pressured into paying. These types of scare tactics have proven to be effective enough to get at least a few payments.

No matter how realistic and scary these types of emails may seem, users should not take the content seriously because the emails are always scams. Users’ computers are not infected with malware, nor is there a video of them watching pornography. Users can simply remove “Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you” email from their inboxes if they receive it. The same goes for all other sextortion scams.

Below is the full text from theĀ “Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you” email scam:

Subject: You have an outstanding payment.

Hello there!

Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you.
Around several months ago I have obtained access to your devices that you were using to browse internet.
Subsequently, I have proceeded with tracking down internet activities of yours.

Below, is the sequence of past events:
In the past, I have bought access from hackers to numerous email accounts (today, that is a very straightforward task that can be done online).
Clearly, I have effortlessly logged in to email account of yours -.

A week after that, I have managed to install Trojan virus to Operating Systems of all your devices that are used for email access.
Actually, that was quite simple (because you were clicking the links in inbox emails).
All smart things are quite straightforward. (>_<)

The software of mine allows me to access to all controllers in your devices, such as video camera, microphone and keyboard.
I have managed to download all your personal data, as well as web browsing history and photos to my servers.
I can access all messengers of yours, as well as emails, social networks, contacts list and even chat history.
My virus unceasingly refreshes its signatures (since it is driver-based), and hereby stays invisible for your antivirus.

So, by now you should already understand the reason why I remained unnoticed until this very moment…

While collecting your information, I have found out that you are also a huge fan of websites for adults.
You truly enjoy checking out porn websites and watching dirty videos, while having a lot of kinky fun.
I have recorded several kinky scenes of yours and montaged some videos, where you reach orgasms while passionately masturbating.

If you still doubt my serious intentions, it only takes couple mouse clicks to share your videos with your friends, relatives and even colleagues.
It is also not a problem for me to allow those vids for access of public as well.
I truly believe, you would not want this to occur, understanding how special are the videos you love watching, (you are clearly aware of that) all that stuff can result in a real disaster for you.

Let’s resolve it like this:
All you need is $1750 USD transfer to my account (bitcoin equivalent based on exchange rate during your transfer), and after the transaction is successful, I will proceed to delete all that kinky stuff without delay.
Afterwards, we can pretend that we have never met before. In addition, I assure you that all the harmful software will be deleted from all your devices. Be sure, I keep my promises.

That is quite a fair deal with a low price, bearing in mind that I have spent a lot of effort to go through your profile and traffic for a long period.
If you are unaware how to buy and send bitcoins – it can be easily fixed by searching all related information online.

How did the malicious actor know my email address?

Users who receive sextortion emails may wonder how scammers were able to get their email addresses. In some cases, scammers can also make it seem like the emails were sent by users’ own email accounts. Malicious actors and scammers buy email addresses from hacker forums, where they end up after being leaked. Users can check whether their email address has been leaked on haveibeenpwned. And if it appears that the email was sent by users’ own accounts, it’s because scammers simply spoofed the addresses. This is not difficult to do.

In some cases, sextortion scam emails also reveal users’ passwords. This is an effective tactic because if users do not know that passwords are leaked just like any other data, it works to give the email credibility. Just like email addresses, passwords are also often leaked if the service does not have adequate security. Users whose passwords are revealed in a sextortion must immediately change their passwords.
