Sorry friends, I'm afraid I just can't quite afford the Bitcoin to stop that vid from leaking everywhere


Oh, those kinds are very funny.

They/he/she/it/whatever are blackmailing my technical email forwarder with similar crap for at least 4 weeks.

First, they found a stale leaked password database and stated they have "password for me account" (go on, hackers, try logging in under email forwarder address). Then they stated they "hacked that account half a year ago" and infected "my device" with super malware, re-sending its owner all the new passwords I try to use. Woe unto me, I'm pwned...

With every message the "hacker" gets so increasingly ridiculous, I am just tempted to send them 0.01$ worth of bitcoin with comment "you can do better".

But no, I won't. I am just too lazy to waste both time and money...
