Have you hooked into our weather station???

Go to weatherlink.com Register. Search for Casa 4 Vientos. We are located very close to the dolphins on Playa la Ropa.

As of right now, the month total is 23.63. The total will disappear at midnight because we don't pay for the upgrades!!

I hooked in to your weather station. The next day I got 2 same emails as follows. The message showed the actual password that I used to sign in.

Hey, I know your password is: xxxxxxxx (they had it, I just put x's here)

Your computer was infected with my malware, RAT (Remote Administration Tool), your browser wasn't updated / patched, in such case it's enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more - Google: "Drive-by exploit".

My malware gave me full access and control over your computer, meaning, I got access to all your accounts (see password above) and I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it. (This p/w is not the p/w to my computer)

I collected all your private data and I RECORDED YOU (through your webcam) SATISFYING YOURSELF!

After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces.

I can send the video to all your contacts, post it on social network, publish it on the whole web, including the darknet, where the sick people are, I can publish all I found on your computer everywhere!

Only you can prevent me from doing this and only I can help you out in this situation.

Transfer exactly 1000$ with the cryptocurrency Monero (XMR) to my Monero (XMR) address.

You can easily buy Monero (XMR) here: www.anycoindirect.eu/en/buy-monero , www.bitnovo.com/buy-monero-online-en , www.localmonero.co , or Google for other exchanger.
You can send the Monero (XMR) directly to my address, or create your own wallet first here: www.mymonero.com , or here: www.cryptonator.com , www.freewallet.org , then receive and send to mine.

It's a very good offer, compared to all that horrible shit that will happen if I publish everything!

My Monero (XMR) address is: 4BrL51JCc9NGQ71kWhnYoDRffsDZy7m1HUU7MRU4nUMXAHNFBEJhkTZV9HdaL4gfuNBxLPc3BeMkLGaPbF5vWtANQubDtNq5uuC622w4we

Copy and paste my address, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE), yes that's how the address looks like and you don't need to include memo or something else.

I give you 4 days to transfer the Monero (XMR), because some exchanger want your verification first before you can buy Monero (XMR).

As I got access to this email account, I will know if this email has already been read.
If you get this email multiple times, it's to make sure you read it, my mailer script has been configured like that and after payment you can ignore it.
After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before.

Next time update your browser before browsing the web!

I have logged into the site given by Talley ho and had no problems.

You were likely infected before logging into the site by Talley ho which is why they were able to watch what you entered for a password. Their claim is that your browser was not updated, nothing to do with which site you logged into.

Most everyone should have anti-virus, anti-viral software on their computer and perform updates immediately when they are available. I also highly recommend using a VPN that encrypts your traffic.

That is a scary email to get and hopefully you are taking immediate actions to change passwords on all of the sites (using strong passwords and not the same one across sites) you use and taking steps with a knowledgeable person to disinfect your computer.

We run Malware Bytes and AVG on all of our computers and they scan every 24 hours. We also use a VPN for many things.

We have received the same e-mail several times, but it has always made reference to very old passwords that we no longer use. Just one of the many scams out there.

Sorry it happened to you.

I hate to say it, but if you and Jack both received this e-mail then your weather service website sounds like the culprit. Could be something like an ad or an image on their website, or it could be a trojan on their server (I suspect the latter). I've never received such a mail, but I also never registered or logged in to your weather service website. You should contact your weather service and send them the e-mail with the FULL HEADERS. If you don't know what the FULL HEADERS are I recommend Google (see below). Gmail and a very few e-mail services hide the full headers, and a good hacker also knows how to modify the data, but lots of folks doing this crap are not hackers, and chances are it has some useful data for folks who know how to trace these things. Personally I always block the IP addresses of such emails by using the info in the full headers, especially entire IP blocks from Ukraine, Russia and China.

How to find full headers

IP & Domain Reputation Center

JACK - I think all they have is the password and nothing else. The rest sounds like BS or they would've provided more proof. But run a FULL scan with your antivirus as well as with an anti-malware and CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE FILES.

Although we have received these messages in the past, we haven't had one in probably a year, and the weather station has only been hooked up to Weatherlink for a couple of months.

Mine have always been in my Junk folder, and I label them as Phishing and report them.

Thanks for you help Rob...the message came from the Philippines. I've now done what you suggested.

I imagine that if most people check their junk files they will find a similar email. I had one recently that showed an old password from seven years ago. I update my passwords every six months and keep a record of the dates of my passwords. I always return the email asking them to send money for watching my video. I don't get a response back. Malwarebytes is a great suggestion, it is who apple folks use when scanning.
