Over the last several days we have received quite a few calls from Mashpee residents about emails they are receiving. In the email, the sender often sends a password the recipient may have used in the past. The sender then states that he or she is in possession of “embarassing videos” and will share those videos with the recipients friends and acquaintances. The sender states to avoid this the “victim” must send him or her money via bitcoin, and that this is non-negotiable. THIS IS A SCAM. Do not answer the email and most certainly do not pay anyone any money! Delete the email, and if the password is one you did use or are using, consider changing it immediately.
