Wilton Police have received several reports of an e-mail "Sextortion" Scam, requesting ransom payment by Bitcoin. The e-mail's contents contain legitimate passwords to various personal accounts of the recipient. But Police say this is a scan and recipients should not respond or send money or Bitcoin. Recipients should change the password to any compromised accounts. Wilton Police say no further action is required, as there is no legitimate threat. Overall, extortion by email is growing significantly, according to the FBI’s Internet Crime Compliant Center. Last year, these complaints rose 242-percent, with total losses of $83 million. This scam spiked in 2018, according to IC3, netting millions for scammers.
