"dancing in the dragon's fiery breath"
You should wash your hands after making that Chilli - it certainly doesn't sound comfortable.
I too have seen these emails again this week. Although how they harvest contacts from social media sites I have no presence on is a feat.
I would also say the scam is self destructive. Where would they host thousands of these videos? that would surely eat their income if left up for long. Also there would be so little chance of your video being found among the thousands its an empty threat.
Therefore scammers, you can take the video you made from my PC that has no camera attached, the contacts you harvested from social media companies I have no presence on, and spend your own cash hosting the video. Please send me the link...
