    If some dude wants to watch a fat 37 year old dude having a fap on webcam that's on him.

    I can't imagine anyone apart from my partner (and sometimes not even her) who would willingly watch that.

    F**k threats, I don't negotiate with terrorists.

    I got a much less elaborate version of the email today, but with crappier English & no passwords given. Also after $US400 rather than thousands. I don't watch porn on my computer & the webcam is covered, so they are clearly bluffing. Fuck 'em.

    Maybe they were too scared to push an aussie too far.

    Yeah, any people crazy enough to live in a country where everything can kill you are not to be messed with. :-D

    Why do I have a feeling they harvested the IDs from WAB? Imagine a scammer emailing the good Colonel for money. What a scene that would be! :D

    But OP said they told him his login password to this site.

    Am wondering if others who received a similar email also had their passwords revealed ?

    My mistake, by ID, I meant ID & pass. Good question though, it's a shot in the dark for the scammer, and right now my guess is ID & passes were bought & sold on the dark net.
