Below scam email was received 15/3/2018.
Investigations show it was sent from Russian registered website and IP address. There are a couple of other indicators that stand out but I wont disclose them here so not to forwarn the senders. Other point is my computer has a blocked / tape over web cam so the info in the text is false.
I call it The Porn Extortion.
If you get such an email delete it straight away.
A couple of words that describe these people that send this type of email: Self abusing wankers!
Email as below.
Titled: I collected very interesting content
Do not mind on my grammar, I am from India.
We put mine virus onto your OS.
After that I pilfered all confidential background from your device. Moreover I have some more evidence.
The most interesting evidence that I have- its a videotape with your self-abusing.
I installed virus on a porn page and then you downloaded it. When you chose the video and pressed play, my malicious software immediately downloaded on your Operating System.
After loading, your front-camera made the videotape with you masturbating, in addition it captured precisely the porn video you selected. In next week my malware captured all your social media and email contacts.
If you wish to destroy the videotape- send me 329 united state dollar in BTC(cryptocurrency).
It is my Bitcoin address - 1CjVSdCC8Uy4Jd7rxTWRUZmCb945CVyd4V
You have 30 h. to go since now. When I receive transfer I will destroy the evidence forever. Other way I will forward the video to all your contacts.

We are kicking off Edition.com.au with a section titled "Scams"
If you own an email account, especially business related, then you are most likely going to receive scam and phishing emails regularly.
I have spoken to a number of people who want information and be forewarned about these scams. Some of these people have lost money to these fraudsters
As having several email accounts we tend to get a lot of these scam and phishing emails sent to us. When they arrive at more than a couple of our email accounts then there is a good chance it will be a scam email. There are other ways to confirm the email is scam but takes a small amount of technical knowledge.
