“Ha‌sta‌xla‌lyvi‌sta‌” says a “ha‌cke‌r” who tries to blackmail me using an obfuscated mail

We’ve seen millions of emails with blackmailing texts containing some username/email address and a password harvested from some hacked website.

This one would be just another one, except that the text is obfuscated 🙂

It looks interesting but it is tiresome to try to read it. And why the effort, in the end ?

Below is the email. This son of a b** who sent the email took good care to not obfuscate the BTC wallet.

Unfortunately, somebody actually paid on 27.2.2020, but I am not sure if this is a victim or not.

Here is the relevant part of the header of the email:
