New York State Police at Oneonta are warning the public of email scams using scare tactics. One of those demands the person who receives the email to pay a Bitcoin ransom in order to keep alleged sexually explicit videos from being sent to all the contacts in the person’s email and social media contacts. According to a press release from the Troop C newsroom, these emails are illegitimate and money should never be sent. Do not open any links that you are not familiar with.
