Chinese Domain Name Scam

Chinese Domain Name Scam

     I received a few e-mails at Arimecibo that looked suspicious. In the messages, someone claimed to attempt registering my Domain Name and Internet Keyword in China.  I contacted my web host to find out what they thought. Upon further investigation, I found this article:


     The text in the article was almost word-for-word as in the e-mails. Apparently these scammers are using the same translation. I know that a few members here have websites for their own businesses and other hobbies, so be forewarned.

Bitcoin scam

     On March 8, 2019 I received a scam e-mail at this website that was forwarded to my primary e-mail address. Most likely it came from the same scammer as above. By the time I looked for the original message at Arimecibo, the system software had already deleted it.

     I did not open the e-mail to read it, but extracted the text by checking Properties in my mail client (Windows Mail {WinMail.exe} on Windows 7). The text of that e-mail is posted below as a warning to everyone. My comments are in Maroon.



From: "HACKED" <Phony e-mail address>
To: oquiexis@arimecibo.com This message would never find me!
Subject: IMPORTANT! You have been recorded masturbating!

Text:
Hi there,

The last time you visited a porn website with teens, you downloaded and installed the software I developed.
I do not visit porn websites, so this is bullshit.

My program has turned on your camera and recorded the process of your masturbation.
I do not have a camera on either of my computers.

My software has also grabbed all your email contact lists and a list of your friends on Facebook.
Seriously?

I have the - Oquiexis.mp4 - with you jerking off to teens as well as a file with all your contacts on my computer.
More bullshit. The dufuss could not even get my name right!

You are very perverted!

If you want me to delete both the files and keep the secret, you must send me Bitcoin payment. I give you 72 hours for the payment.

If you don't know how to pay with Bitcoin, visit Google and search.

Send 2.000 USD to this Bitcoin address as soon as possible:

<-- link obfuscated by noquiexis -->
(copy and paste)

1 BTC = 3,850 USD right now, so send exactly 0.524689 BTC to the address provided above.

Do not try to cheat me!
As soon as you open this Email I will know you opened it. I am tracking all actions on your device.
More bullshit. The message came in as plain text. There is nothing that can track my keystrokes or mouse movements.

This Bitcoin address is linked to you only, so I will know when you send the correct amount.
When you pay in full, I will remove both files and deactivate my program.
More bullshit. If this dufuss had the goods on me, he would milk it for all he could.

If you don't send the payment, I will send your masturbation video to ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES from your contact lists I hacked.

Here are the payment details again:

Send 0.524689 BTC to this Bitcoin address:

----------------------------------------
<-- link obfuscated by noquiexis -->
----------------------------------------


You саn visit police but nobody can help you. I know what I am doing. I don't live in your country and I know how to stay anonymous.

Don't try to deceive me - I will know it immediately - my spy software is recording all the websites you visit and all keys you press. If you do - I will send this ugly recording to everyone you know, including your family.

Don't cheat me! Don't forget the shame and if you ignore this message your life will be ruined.

I am waiting for your Bitcoin payment. You have 72 hours left.

Anonymous Hacker



     As I mentioned above, this message is posted as a warning. Do not fall for this bullshit.
