BITCOIN SEX SCAMS EXPLOIT GUILTY PORN VOYEURS FOR $1.2 MILLION A YEAR

Cybersecurity firm Symantec has warned that Bitcoin sextortion scams are on the rise, with scammers making a fortune by targeting people who watch porn – and don’t want their loved ones to know about it.

During the first five months of this year, the cybersecurity firm disclosed that it blocked approximately 289 million sextortion emails, but that didn’t stop the scammers from milking guilty porn viewers for more than $1 million.

Most of these scams threatened to embarrass the recipients of the email by revealing their porn-viewing habits by claiming to have secretly been recording them. And in some rare cases, the scammers claimed to be law enforcement officers who had stumbled upon child pornography on a device owned by their target.
