The people behind this scamware demand that you pay a large amount of money in the form of Bitcoin. Do not trust their lies! To make this email look credible, cyber criminals will include your email address, and in some cases, your password too.

If you do not pay attention to what you click on, you might get redirected to a suspicious and even dangerous third-party website that seeks to harm your computer.
