We all know how important updates are, and that is why this scammer has titled his email ‘Important Updates.’ I have included the important updates scam email below in its entirety. I will also explain why the so-called important updates scam email is total bullshit.

Beware The Important Updates Scam Email

I am sorry to inform you that your device was compromised.

I’ll explain what led to all of this. I have used a Zero Day (I added that link for those of you not familiar with the term) vulnerability with a special code to infect your device through a website.
This is a complicated software that requires precise skills that I have. It works as a chain with specially crafted and unique code and that’s why this type of an attack can go undetected.
You only need one not patched vulnerability to be infected, and unfortunately for you – it works that simple.

You were not targeted specifically, but just became one of the quite a few unlucky people who got hacked that day.
All of this happened a few month ago. So I’ve had time to collect information on you.(I was not targeted specifically?? You’re just a prick who loves to prey on anyone just for your own gains. Even if they’re not able to pay. What a scumbag!!)

I think you already know what is going to happen next.
During that time, my software was quietly collecting information about your habits, websites that you visit, searches you do, texts you send.
There is more to it, but I have listed a few reasons for you to understand how serious this is.

For you to clearly understand, my software controlled your camera and microphone as well and it was impossible for you to know about it.
It was just about right timing for me to get you privacy violated. (Bullshit, because I haven’t done anything wrong so I know you’re just a scam artist preying on those less internet savvy)

I’ve been waiting enough and have decided that it’s time to put an end to this.
So here is my offer. I need a consulting fee to delete the media content I have been collecting.
Your privacy stays untouched, if I get paid.
Otherwise, I will leak the most damaging content to your contacts and post it to a public tube for perverts to explore. (Go for it you moron if you think that my mundane life is of any interest to anyone out there.)

I understand how damaging this will be for you, and amount is not that big for you to keep your privacy.
Please dont blame me – we all have different ways of making a living. (Really, that is your excuse for targeting all those people who have made a living legitimately. You are nothing but a lowlife bottom-feeding scum of the earth!)

I have no intention of destroying your reputation or life, but only if I get paid. (Oh, that is so kind of you.)
I don’t care about you personally, that’s why you can be sure that all files I have and software on your device will be deleted immediately after I receive the transfer.
I only care about getting paid.

My modest consulting fee is 1650 US Dollars transferred in Bitcoin. Exchange rate at the time of the transfer. (Consulting fee! That’s what you’re calling it?)

You need to send that amount to this wallet: 1nJCE7GPLEgKVtoDB2vNKxivw3U6ogMeS

The fee is non negotiable, to be transferred within 2 business days.
We use Bitcoin to protect my identity.

Obviously do not try to ask for any help from anybody unless you want your privacy to be violated.
I will monitor your every move until I get paid. If you keep your end of the agreement, you wont hear from me ever again.

Take care.


Yep, I will take care ok, by not sending you anything. I will also publish your poorly formatted scam email to warn anyone else who may receive that the best thing they could do would be to delete the email and certainly not reply to it. Or, they may want to print it so that they can wipe their arse with it because that’s all it’s worth.

YouTube Algorithm Hacks To Get Views

Best YouTube Algorithm Hacks To Get Views

Before I write about YouTube algorithm hacks to get views, I will touch on a couple of other YouTube pointers. I’ve been on YouTube for ages, and although I’m not a fan of analytics, I know they’re essential for gaining traffic. That’s why I wrote Analytics For More YouTube views. I also mentioned it in my YouTube Reviews post.

I repurposed the following post using Content GorillaGrammarly from Think Media’s video on algorithm hacks. 

YouTube Algorithm Hacks

I’m sure that I’m not the only one that is frustrated about YouTube’s constantly changing algorithm. I feel like I can release a video one week that goes viral. Then a week later, I put out a better video, and it falls flat, leading me to have a chat with YouTube experts Ricky Ray Butler and Derrel Eves.

I will be sharing that conversation about how to hack the YouTube algorithm with you in this post, specifically, seven proven strategies that are working right now. All so you can get more views, get more subscribers, and get your videos to stand out. 

YouTube Secrets For Growing On YouTube

While the first one may sound a little basic, I would like to point out that common sense doesn’t always lead to everyday practice. Of course, I’m referring to paying attention to the topic.

When I think about factors that will influence a video ranking, and that’s important for me, I want to rank in search. And when I think about ranking in search, I also think about the suggested videos. A featured video is excellent because it’s getting views in weeks, months and years to come.

Of course, we know that the title thumbnails are essential and that tags have less influence. But, together, tags, description, title, thumbnail are super important. Still, I think a big missing piece when people think about getting that thumbnail right and even getting that title right is the topic itself.  

And so, what I’ve been learning the most from studying YouTube Studio Beta is if I put out the best thumbnail in the world, we could all stand in an art gallery, like “My gosh, there could be no better thumbnail!” And even a clever title, like “I can’t even believe he packed in that much. What a headline, what a title! There are keywords in there, but it speaks to humans! It’s perfect the way that thing has been crafted.” But if it’s not the right topic, then people aren’t going to be interested. And so, I guess what I’ve learned now on THiNK Media is as I hear guys like Matt Gealan talking about and stuff, we’re getting sniper on– YouTube channels need to have one value proposition.

And then there is that pesky algorithm like you throw a thing out there, and I’ll talk about some random stuff; it’s still my channel, so I know camera videos perform well, but the other day I did the DJI Remote video. It was so obscure that it didn’t achieve much at all. It had to be the topic itself! Who is that interested in the DJI Remote?

-Let me interject here for a minute because I reckon that everyone who owns a DJI Drone would be interested in the DJI remote. Perhaps it didn’t perform well because the title, tags and such didn’t conform with YT’s algorithm.- OK, back to the post. 

The views didn’t perform, of course. It wasn’t there.

And you don’t want to do that too many times in a row. You want to be putting out topics that do perform.

-Yep, we all know that. And when we choose those topics, we think that they will perform, but YT’s pesky algorithm sticks up its ugly head and puts a stop to that.-

So I think, when it comes to a topic, here are some tips. What’s trending? Like what is in the zeitgeist, the mentality of your industry? That’s the thing you need to target in your video. So, are you talking about topics where even if you don’t have the best thumbnail or the best title, choosing the right topic at the right time could be a game-changer?  

Right now, Peak Design is doing that new tripod, and of course, when you see Peter drop it, and then my friend Atola Visuals dropped about this new Peak Design tripod, it starts to go viral.

We saw what happened with the SwitchPod, and how other people then jump on that bandwagon. When the SwitchPod came out, Pat loved that I talked about it, and I loved talking about it as well, but I realized I probably got more benefit out of the deal than maybe even Pat did; why? Because when Peter put it out, the suggested videos of being in that conversation was crucial. When thinking about topics, think about what’s trending in your industry. What should you be talking about is as important as what your subscribers want to see! That distribution to your subscribers for established channels is something I’m tryin’ to craft and figure out.

I’m always thinking, “What will click get them to click on one of my videos?” And I know, just to kind of break down my understanding of how it works, right now YouTube is giving that distribution just to a few of your subscribers. Whether they like it or not, whether they click through on that or not. So again, they’re going to click through– They already know me. Even if the thumbnail’s mediocre, they’re going to click through if it’s the right topic. That’s why I’m making the right content decisions, trying to hit the most significant core of my audience as possible, because I see these days it seems as soon as a video dies if it doesn’t get liftoff.

It just dies. Knowing that it’s that topic that’s going to hit, and once it gets liftoff, then I’ve seen it even spike higher than that through the algorithm. 

I’ve mentioned, you know, “What’s gonna be most appealing “to my core audience?” And a lot of creators think that way, and that’s how they’re creating content, and I think that works to a degree. But it depends on the type of channel you have and the type of content you’re creating. But the reality is, when you want to get tactical, it’s like, “OK, what’s my core audience” but more importantly, what’s going to bring in and attract “a new audience?” Because if you take care of your core audience, the core audience will come and go, and that’s where I see many channels plateau.

 I see many channels lose subscribers, and they also lose the view and visibility of what they could have because they’re not taking care of the emerging market and the other people watching.

So, you have to have different balances. – [Sean] So, you have to branch out, then?

– Exactly. (stammers) Was it MatPat? – [Sean] Yeah. – He got on that was talking about that in-depth. He makes four different types of videos or something.

– Yeah, one for subscriptions, one for views – 

Right? [Derral] Yeah, yeah. – one for engagement. – What on our channel do we need more of? And what are the videos that are going to help us get there?

And so we try, in our programming calendars, to find a proper cadence of, “This is a subscriber building episode.” That’s going to get wider dissemination, get people excited about– Covering a trending topic or something very relevant. We then do a powerful call to subscribe at the end.

So, that’s where it starts, so you have your subscriber building episodes, and you have your monetization episodes. Where it’s like, hey, this is a video that’s just going to monetize better than other videos in our repertoire because it has more searchable key phrases. It has something that is building on the hype of something – Right. – that’s hot right now, and that we know there are big marketing dollars behind. So every once in a while, there’s that.

Where we’re like, “Hey, we know that this one isn’t going to blow; It’s not going to be the #1 video on trending or whatever.” – [Interviewer] But, yeah!- Yeah, and then the ones that are super-serving the fans. It’s of a small niche franchise or a topic that they come to us specifically.

It might not have a broader audience appeal, but the people who have been following us for all these years, it’s something that they’ll appreciate. They’ll know, and we will show them that, “Hey, we are still doing the content for you as well, and we’re still very much in touch with this community.” – I think the key is, yes, you gotta figure out what the core is, but you also need to be able to see, OK.

You’ve got to be a little bit experimental to see what’s going to be the next big thing, you know? – Because the YouTube algorithm is constantly changing, we need to be continuously learning and levelling up. 

It took quite a bit of effort with the help of Grammarly to get the above post to a grammatically correct readable standard. I’m not sure I was able to find seven YouTube Algorithm Hacks? As for the video, I struggled to get anything of value out because it was so vague, and I needed several attempts to watch it. Having it all down in written format makes it a whole lot easier to come to grips with it as a whole but I still say it’s lacking the YouTube Algorithm Hacks that was promised. I hope it helped you as well.

What I have learnt through my research, I used the knowledge to produce a video about Instagram and blog promotion.

Choosing The Right Instagram Name

When starting an Instagram account to promote a blog, it seemed smart to ensure they shared the same niche. The closest I could get to was _laugh_out_really_loud, which I thought was still pretty cool. I’m going to make sure that the bulk of the posts will be funny memes that will try to put at the very least a smile on the viewers’ faces.
