Just got an e-mail today demanding bit coins to stop the release of supposedly erotic photos of me from going to all my contacts. First it was very poorly written, second I have not participated in or clicked on any porn sites as they suggested, thirdly they sent to my "work" e-mail (I'm retired) and they will give me five days to respond to they're demands. They also provided some url to click on to complete the transaction with instuctions to do a google search if I was unclear about how to send them bit coins. One other thing they mentioned was that they would be able to tell when I opened the e-mail. At this point I deleted the e-mail but did do a screen capture to get the relevant info. Any ideas on what should be done with this type of e-mail, besides deleting or ignoring it, would be appreciated. I read and deleted the e-mail from my iPad, not my main computer. Thanks

Hi Nina,
Does your email client have an address
that you can forward spam to?
Like Apple's "spam@me.com".
I'd forward to them.
