I’ve a mind to scrap my Facebook presence too. This might be a worthwhile endeavour as I’ve had plenty of recent attempts to access my account.For a spell I kept getting extortion emails. "They" apparently put malware on my computer which was invisible to all anti-malware software. This has harvested all my email contacts, and has also recorded me, through my webcam, pleasuring myself (their words). Having done that, they remove the malware, also invisibly.
If I don't send them £500 in bitcoin, they will email the video to all of my contacts.
To give it some spice, they have one of my computer passwords, which I'm pretty sure came from a facebook breach.
In my case, I'm certain no such video exists, unless it's of me pleasuring myself by looking at crappy old cars on eBay. But if you did have a penchant for pleasuring yourself in front of your laptop, I imagine it might make you a wee bit worried. However, if you do get this email, don't panic, nothing has ever been sent to my contacts.
It's interesting to note that since deleting my Facebook account, I hardly get any spam emails at all. This may be a coincidence.
