You are very perverted!

If you want me to delete both files and keep your secret,
you must send me Bitcoin payment. I give you the last 72 hours.
If you don’t know how to send Bitcoins, search Google.

Send 2000 USD to this Bitcoin address immediately:

1 BTC = 3850 USD right now, so send exactly 0.529130 BTC
to the address above.

Do not try to cheat me!
As soon as you open this Email I will know you opened it.

This Bitcoin address is linked to you only,
so I will know if you sent the correct amount.
When you pay in full, I will remove both files and deactivate my software.

If you don’t send the payment, I will send your masturbation video
to ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES from your contact list I acquired.

Here are the payment details again:

Send 0.529130 BTC to this Bitcoin address:

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.

P.S. If you need more time to buy and send 0.529130 BTC,
open your notepad and write ’48h plz’.
I will consider giving you another 48 hours before I release the vid,
but only when I see you are really struggling to buy bitcoin.
