You are welcomed with a command of hackers ZeleniyHach.

We hold a huge network of Distributed Denial Of Service Attack, allowing to suspend any web site. We have been watching XXX.COM and were able to find out that you have spent pretty money much for it's advancement and we want to to offer you to spend a little more yet. Just as little as 200 bucks as a voluntary donation to our fund will keep your web site away from DDOS attack.

200 bucks is not so much also will help you to avoid greater problems in the future.


Unfortunately, we accept only Webmoney Paymer Cheks, so make sure to get your fat asses out and without assistance find out how to transfer money into it. We give you 48 hours. If after 48 hours we will not get 200 dollars, there is one more 0 will be added to 200 bucks, i.e. 2000 bucks and so on until you come to reason.

Stingy pays twice ).

When you are ready, just send the check as your response to this message..

In subject matter of the letter specify the domain with greater letters, it is a lot of you We are the one, respect our work.

I've received about 10 of these so far today and another 100 or so spam emails with no subject or content from assorted webmail addresses...

Comment #1

These are the kinds of things you never respond to ever...if they know that somewhere there is someone replying to them then that is a target for future harassment, or sale to other scammers as a live account.

If you ever hand over any money you will be hit so hard your email address will be flung back into the stone age under the weight of all the spam.

Avoid at all costs I would say and contact Yahoo or the appropriate authorities...

Comment #2

Fake spam, ignore and don't even reply to these bozos...

Comment #3

Ignore it, i've gotten similar spam.

Even if it was real. Which it is not. Paying them would just make the situation much worse for yourself...

Comment #4

Gotta love a good spam mail, brings tears to your eyes with how ridiculously retarded they are..

Comment #5

How are they targeting the recipients - is there something in common? Same registrar? Same host? Someone on the other thread said it might be the same privacy service? Just curious.....

Comment #6

DOS attack is a serious crime, if you from U.S. report to your local FBI agency....

Comment #7

Having encountered this thread, after also having read previously the similar thread by another user. I decided to do a search in my e-mail clients spambox for phrase contained in the mail message.

What I found was 166 e-mails of this type sent to me which I did not even know I had received (spam filter). I seem to have received most of them last couple of days.

The ones I have checked seem to relate to one and the same site. The extra "funny" part I find here is:.

"and were able to find out that you have spent pretty money much for it's advancement".

Since the site is essentially worthless in terms of amount of money and time spent on it. So it does not appear that they particulary target "nice sites", since mine is pretty useless. That they were all filtered as spam is also impressive.

I deal with DDOS attacks daily. If anyone ever wants assistance fighting them let me know.

But OP I'd ignore the emails. Never give in to extortion...

Comment #9

I didn't respond but did make my host aware just in case as even though the 'site' they targeted was a parked domain, the email address they sent to relates to my website. The extortion threats ceased after 48 hours but I'm still getting an extra 120 or so spam mails per day from other webmail addresses with no subject or content...
