A widely sent email is threatening to expose the porn habits of anyone who opens it—unless the right price is paid. But don’t worry: The email and its threat are a scam.

Two similar sextortion scams, one in Dutch and one in English, have been identified this week, Gizmodo reports. A Dutch publication reported that hackers made as much from €40,000 from an email circulating in the Netherlands. Security researcher SecGuru discovered a similar version of the email written in English that, according to Bleeping Computer, extorted $2,353 from four victims by Wednesday.
