    is there a program or something that can make it look like someone has access to my email account.

    I received an email from myself, demanding that I pay money for web cam porn or something like that. Anyway, it looks, in Outlook, like i sent it. But I am pretty sure no one but me actually has access to that account.
    Is it possible to spoof a sender? The email references a web cam video but I don't have a webcam, so atleast that part is wrong. But I am interested in the "sent by" email, can it be altered?
    (this email address signs into my Amazon account, and, believe it or not, someone actually broke into it and added 2 AmEx cards - they did not buy anything, they added the cards to my account and tried to buy a prepaid Amazon card, Amazon blocked it, when I complained about the cards they did nothing, so I just deleted them. I tried to tell AmEx and give them the card numbers I could see but they won't communicate with you unless you are a card holder, and I am not, so nothing happened)

    Here is the email:

    You may not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this e mail, right?

    I’m a hacker who cracked your email and devices a few months ago.

    Do not try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from YOUR hacked account.

    I setup a malware on the adult vids (porno) web-site and guess what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean).

    While you were watching videos, your internet browser started out functioning as a RDP (Remote Control) having a keylogger which gave me accessibility to your screen and web cam.

    After that, my software program obtained all information.

    You entered a passwords on the websites you visited, and I intercepted it.

    Of course you can will change it, or already changed it.

    But it doesn’t matter, my malware updated it every time.

    What did I do?

    I backuped device. All files and contacts.

    I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you’ve got a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your web cam.

    exactly what should you do?

    Well, in my opinion, $1000 (USD) is a fair price for our little secret. You’ll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search “how to buy bitcoin” in Google).

    My Bitcoin wallet Address:


    (It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)


    You have 48 hour in order to make the payment. (I’ve a unique pixel in this e mail, and at this moment I know that you have read through this email message).

    To track the reading of a message and the actions in it, I use the facebook pixel.

    Thanks to them. (Everything that is used for the authorities can help us.) If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your video recording to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so on.​

    It is very easy for just about anyone to spoof the "From:" header information when sending an email.

    If you had not already done so, change your Amazon password as soon as possible. Make sure it is not easy to guess and definitely not used on any other website.
