It is a generic mail sent to thousands of emails and in this case, they didn’t hack anything. We knew already before checking the website because this is the Lazy Man’s scam. Just send a mail to 10.000 mail addresses and hope someone get scared enough to pay.

Furthermore they are extremely ignorant. Claiming that BitCoin is anonymous is hillarious! It took me less than a minute to check the wallet number they want people to send money to (3EEQ4EmY2gxy1pV18L2yLJU2wRxMJGgGqf) and absolutely no one had fallen for this scam at the time of checking:

BitCoin Scam

They haven’t made a single micro BitCoin at all!

They hacked a site VitaSport.nl from where they send scam mails.
