A terrifying email scam, using stolen passwords and sextortion, is trying to scare many people out of their money.

There are variations of the blackmail threat, but in most cases a password that someone once used or is still using appears in the subject line of the email.

The hackers claim to have “evidence of your secret” after installing malware on adult video sites.

The email explains web cameras were hacked and recordings were made of the person watching the pornography.

The hackers then demand anywhere from $1,000 to $3,600 in electronic cash, known as bitcoins, or the video will be released to all contacts, including family members and co-workers.
