Default So I got this email.

Went through my mails and discovered one with a girls name and the word Re: I clicked on it and start to read.

WHAT...This person should have planted a virus on my computer..Doubtful I run my antivirus 1-2 times per week and it hasn't found anything yet.

This person has made record of me-HA I do not own a web camera.

I like to visit adult pages-HA and HA again I haven't visit those pages since 2015/6.

The person wanted 1100 Euros in Bitcoin...

What I did with this letter !? I throw it in the bin and then I erased it together with the rest of the spam mail I got.

I get those from time to time myself.
I just reply "Post the stuff!"
I have tape over my cam so how would they have anything?

Yea the only thing you can do is laugh about it.

It is first time I got such an email-Mostly I get email from men who try to convince they are an attractive woman. They add some photo of some beauty.

Edit
This person, well most likely it is a man behind this email. gave me two work days-He can wait to judgement day.
Well if he send me another letter I'm going to answer him with following (in Danish)

Hi it seems like there's a problem here can we meet and discuss it over a glass of whine so we can solve this-PS don't forget to take your lawyer and your toothbrush with you DS PPS If you do not come then I and my colleague will pay you a visit. Your IP and other vital information did you give me when you send the first email.
End edit

I'm not sure if I should-Pretending to be an policeofficer is forbidden and the text could give the impression I was.

You're right about that-Furthermore he didn't send a second mail-which he said he would-Where he should tell me how to send him bitcoin.

If I get more of these-Into the bin.
