My wife received this e-mail.

I do know, xxx, is your password. You don’t know me and you’re probably thinking why you’re getting this e mail, right? In fact, I actually setup a malware on the adult vids (porn material) web site and guess what, you visited this website to experience fun (you know what I mean). While
you were watching videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP (Remote Desktop) that has a key logger which provided me accessibility to your display screen and web camera. Immediately after that, my software obtained your complete contacts from your Messenger, FB, and email. What exactly did I do?
I created a double-screen video. 1st part displays the video you were watching (you’ve got a
good taste ; )), and 2nd part displays the recording of your web camera. What should you do?Well, I believe, $2900 is a reasonable price tag for our little secret. You will make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).
BTC Address: xxxXXXxxxxxXXXXxxxxXXXXxxxxXXXXXxxxxxXXXx
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)
Important:You now have one day in order to make the payment. (I have a special pixel in this e mail, and now I know that you have read this email message). If I do not receive the BitCoins, I will send your video recording to all of your contacts including members of your family, co-workers, and many others. Nonetheless, if I do get paid, I’ll destroy the video immidiately. If you really want evidence,
reply with “Yes!” and I definitely will send out your video recording to your 9 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer, therefore please do not waste my personal time and yours by replying to this email message.

Just so we’re clear the password is a password that she has used. After some research it seems that a lot of people have received this e-mail.
If you receive a similar e-mail, don’t be fooled. The password is from a data breach. There is no video, even if you visited a porn site. DO NOT SEND BITCOIN. If you are still using this password please change it. They have your e-mail address and password. They can get into sites that use this password. So start changing them now. But again there is no video and they do not have control of your computer. DO NOT SEND THEM ANY MONEY.
