Got this one right after supper.
And th return address is MY OWN e-mail address.
=================================

Hello, I work as a Private Investigator.
Our agency received a case with an objective of hacking into your email, phone, cloud storage, network and collecting intelligence.
We work with hackers from China for tasks like that, and they are the best. As you can see, they did a good job. Your accounts and devices are compromised.
But we do have an ethical protocol in place.
After checking the background of the person who paid for the hacking and investigation on you, I have decided to come forward and offer you to buy the information about that person (name, contacts, emails and other proof).
You will also get a report on yourself (including a list of compromised accounts, devices, logs, screenshots, photos and documents).
Normally, we do not disclose sensitive information about our clients, but in this case we will be.

Upon reviewing this case, I found that something illegal was planned against you.
The materials we have collected on you are very sensitive and can be easily used to blackmail you.
We usually address personal and corporate espionage cases, but this case is different.

We have received a prepayment of 50% for your case from that person (total agreed upon cost was 12500 USD).
However, I will give you a discount (without any profit for the agency), if you decide to buy this information.
After we get the payment, I will get back to you. You have 2 business days to make the transfer. It will cost you 40% of the unpaid balance.

We will process $2,500 payment through bitcoin. In case you have trouble with bitcoin, google how to fund it.
Send BTC to this wallet 1H7QWKGzZP1XcY7ruE16X4nYhdbqRzMJ52

It will be up to you what to do after you get the information. We will delete all files. The original client will get nothing and will never know about our deal.
Please keep in mind, because I need to pay Chinese contractors, and if you decline this offer, I will have to go to the original client and send all intel to cover the costs.
But at least you know that now and have a free heads up of what's coming.
===============================

Ain't falling for it.

Lotsa luck."

So we found illegal activity that threatens you and it is at an international level, but instead of going to the CIA or FBI or Interpol, we have come to you. If you pay us we will stop it, but if you don't we will let the threat continue.

Boy Mike, it sure sounds legit to me, are you sure you want to ignore it? I ignored a chain letter once and both my parents died of cancer many years later and many years apart from each other.

What I do Not understand is, How would they know that "You" paid them?

Bitcoin is one Anonymous account to another Anonymous account. So how does 1H7QWKGzZP1XcY7ruE16X4nYhdbqRzMJ52 know that 12wedf56yhn89yr4lkjhytfb5e43 is You or Me or Fred?

Apparently, FRED is far more technologically adept than we had previously been led to believe!
