Your data was leaked in the recent hacking of Ashley Madison and I now have your information. I have also used your profile to discover your Facebook profile, using this I now have a direct line to contact all your friends and family.
If you would like to stop me from sharing this dirt with all of your known
friends and family (and perhaps even your work too?) then you need to send exactly 1.05 bitcoins to the following BTC address.

You may be wondering why should you and what will prevent other people from doing the same, in short you now know to change your privacy settings on Facebook so no one can view your friends/family list. So go ahead and update that now (I have a copy if you don’t pay) to stop any future e-mails like this.
You can buy Bitcoin’s using online exchanges easily. If the Bitcoin is not paid within 3 days of 23 – August – 2015 then my system will automatically message all your friends and family. The bitcoin address is unique to YOU.
Consider how expensive a divorce lawyer is. If you are no longer in a committed relationship then think about how this will affect your social standing amongst family and friends. What will your friends and family think about you?
