It seems regular run-of-the-mill perversion is out, paedophilia accusations are in. $US10,000 to avoid your sorry arse being hauled away vs the usual $~US800 to prevent your friends seeing a video from your non-existent Webcam. Must be legit, they attached the CIA logo seven times.




Case #29438765


Distribution and storage of pornographic electronic materials involving underage children.   


My name is Collin Cupp and I am a technical collection officer working for Central Intelligence Agency.
It has come to my attention that your personal details including your email address (redacted) are listed in case #29438765.


The following details are listed in the document's attachment:


  • Your personal details,
  • Home address,
  • Work address,
  • List of relatives and their contact information.

Case #29438765 is part of a large international operation set to arrest more than 2000 individuals suspected of paedophilia in 27 countries.


The data which could be used to acquire your personal information:


  • Your ISP web browsing history,
  • DNS queries history and connection logs,
  • Deep web .onion browsing and/or connection sharing,
  • Online chat-room logs,
  • Social media activity log.

The first arrests are scheduled for April 8, 2019.


Why am I contacting you ?


I read the documentation and I know you are a wealthy person who may be concerned about reputation.
I am one of several people who have access to those documents and I have enough security clearance to amend and remove your details from this case. Here is my proposition.   


Transfer exactly $10,000 USD (ten thousand dollars - about 2.5 BTC) through Bitcoin network to this special bitcoin address:   




You can transfer funds with online bitcoin exchanges such as Coinbase, Bitstamp or Coinmama. The deadline is March 27, 2019 (I need few days to access and edit the files).
Upon confirming your transfer I will take care of all the files linked to you and you can rest assured no one will bother you.   


Please do not contact me. I will contact you and confirm only when I see the valid transfer.

That wallet address has no transactions so at best case no-one has fallen for the scam...or they could be using a unique address for each email / batch however I doubt it.


This is an interesting one because I feel like the only people that would actually run out and try to buy Bitcoin to pay the $10k fine etc are people that (coincidentally) have actually been looking at underage stuff and know it.


So in that case being scammed out of $10k plus the threat & fear of prosecution may well have some positive effects on their behaviour for the rest of us....

I checked an address from one of those standard scam emails I got recently and I can see someone has put $1000USD into This wallet


Another wallet used for the same thing

...then consolidated in to this address with another $120k-odd NZD before being split off.


There's a recent abuse report for the secondary address so it's definitely on the radar - hopefully exchanges AML will kick in and funds will be frozen somewhere.


Contrary to popular belief crypto is far more easily traceable than fiat and most exchanges are far more cooperative with both private & public law enforcement action than traditional banks & tax haven jurisdictions. #chainalysis
