  1. Can I report a SaveDroid (SVD) ICO Token scam?
    They are nut refunding my purchase due to me not being a US accredited investor.
    Thanks in advance!

  2. Tried to report a scam but it wanted me to sign in. I don’t actually own any bitcoin, I just want to report somebody trying to blackmail me with a fake email.

  3. Hi, your account was hacked!

    It will be good idea to change the pswd right this moment!

    You might not heard about me and you may be certainly wanting to know
    why you’re receiving this particular email, is it right? I’m a hacker
    who cracked your emailbox and
    OS some time ago.

    Do not make an attempt to contact me or look for me, it is definitely
    hopeless, considering that I forwarded you an email from YOUR hacked
    account.

    I created spyware on the adult videos(porn)site and guess you have
    watched this site to enjoy it (you wider stand what I want to say).
    When you have been talking a look at movies, your internet browser
    started out to act as a RDP(Remote Control)\vith akey logger that
    granted me permission to access your monitor and net work camera.

    Afterward, my software program obtained all data.

    You entered passwords on the websites you visited, and I already
    caught all of them. Without a doubt, you can change each of them, or
    perhaps already changed them.
    Even so it doesn’t matter, my appre news needed data regularly. And
    what I have done? I got a backup of every your system. Of each file
    and each contact. I created a dual screen video file.

    The 1 part reveals the film you were watching(you have a very good
    taste, ahah…),the2nd part demonstrates the video from your own web
    camera. What must you do?

    Good, I believe, 1000USD will be a fair amount of money for our little
    secret. You’ll make the deposit by bit coins (if you do not know this,
    search now to purchase bitcoin”in any search engine).

    My bit coin wallet address:

    1CNKaNrl\!IPXx6XFJzGz65V2rukHMVF5SS5J

    (It is cAsE sensitive,so just copy and paste it).Important:

    You have 2 days to send the payment.(I have an exclusive pixel to this
    e-mail,and at this time I widerstand that you’ve read this email). To
    track the reading of a letter and the activity in it,I utilize a
    Facebook pixel. Thanks to them.
    (Anything that is used for the authorities may also help us.) In case
    I fail to get bitcoins,I shall certainly give your video to all your
    contacts, including family members, colleagues, etcetera?

  5. Report this! Scammer: a389-toyoidpou@iam.ne.jp
    ———————————————
    Hi, stranger!

    I know the …, this is your password.
    As you can see, I logged in with your account. And I wrote you this message from your account.

    If you have already changed your password, my malware will be intercepts it every time.

    You may not know me, and you are most likely wondering why you are receiving this email, right?
    In fact, I posted a malicious program on adults (pornography) of some websites, and you know that you visited these websites to enjoy
    (you know what I mean).

    While you were watching video clips,
    my trojan started working as a RDP (remote desktop) with a keylogger that gave me access to your screen as well as a webcam.

    Immediately after this, my program gathered all your contacts from messenger, social networks, and also by e-mail.

    What I’ve done?
    I made a double screen video.
    The first part shows the video you watched (you have good taste, yes … but strange for me and other normal people),
    and the second part shows the recording of your webcam.

    What should you do?

    Well, I think $759 (USD dollars) is a fair price for our little secret.
    You will make a bitcoin payment (if you don’t know, look for “how to buy bitcoins” on Google).

    BTC Address: 1JvJEsdV3eMDaFWbS5LBpUVS5AquYnfSV4
    (This is CASE sensitive, please copy and paste it)

    Remarks:
    You have 2 days (48 hours) to pay. (I have a special code, and at the moment I know that you have read this email).

    If I don’t get bitcoins, I will send your video to all your contacts, including family members, colleagues, etc.
    However, if I am paid, I will immediately destroy the video, and my trojan will be destruct someself.

    If you want to get proof, answer “Yes!” and send this letter to the sender’s address.
    And I will definitely send your video to your any 14 contacts.

    This is a non-negotiable offer, so please do not waste my personal and other people’s time by replying to this email.

    Bye!

  6. Dear bitcoinwhoswho.com:

    Please don’t make reporting scams a hassle for those who are taking time out of their day to help others. Users do not want to have to wait to send & get a verification email back from “admin@bitcoinwhoswho.com” in order to send reports!

    1. We require registration in order to stop bots from making false reports. Alternatively, you can add a tag which doesn’t require registration. Thanks.

  7. I appreciate this blog!
    Do actually people own money ?? Of Course Yes!!!

    Use GoldBitsCoin – online cryptocurrency for shopping or clearing payments that create a “real” store of value agreed upon everyone and the control of this currency is in your hands!!

  8. Received this e-mail today. Needless to say I didn’t & won’t pay something I don’t have for something I haven’t done.

     From: kmwu@vip.sina.com
    Hello… .
      
    This letter won’t acquire a lot of time, therefore direct to the condition. I got a movie of you beating the meat while at the pornweb site you’re went to, due to a good arse program I’ve been able to put on several web sites with that type of material.
     
    You press play and all cameras and a microphone start working in addition it saves every darn thing through your computer, like contact info, account details or crap like that, guess just where i got this email address from?) And so now we all know who i will send that to, just in case you aren’t going to negotiate this along with me.
     
    I’ll put a account wallet address under that you can hit me 730 usd in Three dayz maximum via bitcoin. Notice, it’s not that huge of a sum to pay, guess that can make me not that terrible of a guy.
     
    You are welcome to complete what ever the shit you would like to, yet if i will not see the total within the time period mentioned above, well… you already understand what will occur.
     
    Thus it’s your responsibility at this point. Now i’m not going to proceed through all the info and crap, simply ain’t got time for that and also you likely know that world-wide-web is filled with text letters like this, so it’s as well your decision to believe in this not really, there is only a proven way to find out.
     
    Here is the bitcoin wallet address: 3PR8dN1TERZ29HvrRAT4xdpvLpRfmoVbuA
     
     
    Have fun and just remember that time is ticking
     

  9. Received an Email similar to Louis Schirmer on June 1, 2019.
    Since my camera is always blocked, I ignored the Email, and
    this idiot sender did nothing. Do not pay these morons.
