Port Washington Police warning of sextortion scam

PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Port Washington Police are warning people in the area after receiving two cases of a sextortion scam. 

They say the hackers send you an email with one of your private passwords, claiming they have webcam recordings of you watching adult videos. 

They then threaten to send the videos to your entire contact list if you don't pay up using Bitcoin.

Police say it's all a scam and not to send them any money.
