Got an email, seemed from myself. Claimed to be from a hacker who had hijacked my email, installed spyware, stolen all my passwords, and videoed me watching porn sites. I checked as much as I could, and it looked like someone in maybe UK, had sent me an email with a bogus return address that looked like mine.

Demanded $1000 or they would invade all my accounts. I have not heard of this scam before. I hope it is just an easy to appear real. My response is to publicize, hope no one gets bit.

It is a jungle out there, be careful.
