The Bhoiwada police have registered a complaint against the anonymous hackers. The complaint says that the victim started receiving the e-mail after registering himself on a paid porn site. The hackers demanded him to pay three lakh rupees in bitcoin soon, failing to do so, he’ll make his private details public and send out screenshots of him watching porn. While the case is under probe, cops have appealed to the public not to fall for such emails and more importantly, do not share any personal details in any sites.

Superintendent of Police (cyber crime), Balsingh Rajput said, “This is a trap laid for innocent people. In reality, they (hackers) don’t really have pictures or videos of people. We’re investigating the issue.”

A cyber crime expert from the police team also said that there are some porn sites that mistakenly get started or connect to some apps. Criminals make such web portals and apps to trap people. All these bitcoin activities are going on to raise the market value of the currency, nothing else.
