Does this mean that someone can track their location, or that everyone can track their location?

I don’t like how the internet has made extortion such a low effort crime, used to be you actually had to do something to blackmail people. Now it’s all just code, so dull :roll_eyes:

I’d be proud of that. I think.

I did find it extremely disconcerting when I received my version to find that they had a password that I only used on PayPal. Happily their worst video evidence is probably me chatting to my cat when I should be working, or possibly some nose-picking during allergy season, but still - seeing that password was not a good moment.
PayPal were super helpful when I emailed them about it - hahahahahahahahaha

What kind of humiliation would I really get from my contacts watching a ~2 minute video of me from mid-chest up, looking kinda bored, in mild anguish for a second, then bored again?

On a serious note, this is why I have my laptop webcam taped over, peace of mind for very little effort. I combined it with a small EFF donation as well https://supporters.eff.org/shop/laptop-camera-cover-set

The obvious response is to film yourself masturbating and send them “another for their collection”

sadly i’m pretty broke but this is one of the things I’ll buy if a job I’m looking at pans out. i know it’s not the best security, but judging from my luck on tinder there’s not much of a market for videos of me wanking :wink:

this made me simultaneously laugh and vomit a little in my mouth

Sounds vaguely political. “Before there can be a genuine revolution, the bourgeoisie must make common cause with the worker and against the capitalist parasite class with overt acts of onanism.”


#12

I was actually wondering if “onanism” was some strange part of a @Flossaluzitarin sex ritual.


#13

It means that they won’t be born for even 9 months, the traditional gestation period for a scammer zygote to mature to a scammer baby. Can’t track what hasn’t been birthed dude.


#14

definitely don’t watch this then @quori :wink: (EDIT: NSFW WARNING)

“Back in my day, we had to grift the old-fashioned way; in person! In order to get some schmoe’s money for the Brooklyn Bridge you had to go out and actually trick them into giving you cash for the Brooklyn Bridge! You kids have it easy these days with your hidden credit card readers and your Nigerian Prince e-mail scams. It was a simpler, more honest time I tell you.”

I got one of these a month or so ago. It even had an old password in the title, to let me know it was serious (I think that was an old, old email password, which the account was on. I know it was compromised once years ago.)

Anyway, they wanted $5000 of they would send all my face book contacts video of me jerking it to porn. LOL. Good luck buddy. Can’t get blood from a stone.

It might have been a more stressful time, wondering if it was real had I not covered my webcam with tape, so I knew they couldn’t possibly have video. And I stopped screaming “Excelsior!” upon orgasm, so they wouldn’t have my voice.

jeezz. these scammers still dont have imagination, its mostly the same text as from Black mirrors “shut up and dance”

My virus captured all your private info and switched on your webcam which recorded the process of your masturbation. Just after that the malware saved your contact list. If you don’t pay, I’ll send dirt to all your contacts. Let me remind you-I see what you’re doing!

jaja, sure

an unseen hacker to use the laptop’s camera to record him masturbating. The hacker emails Kenny, threatening to send the video to everyone in his contact list unless he follows a series of instructions

or is this hoping, that the “victim” actually saw this episode and will just shit in his/her pants because of the very unpleasent unfolding plot in this episode?!?

either way, it will work in some cases, cause people are stupid and full of fear. all. the. fucking. time. just look at brazil. they VOTED dictatorship. voluntary. where is my fucking booze?
