Hello, recently i received an email from someone that claims that they installed a trojan (RAT i believe he said) in my devide and now hacked my gmail account, he even wrote and old password that i used (he claimed it was the current one)

Is my account safe? I still have acces to it, they told me that the trojan was intalled from a porn website, but i haven't used one in years.

PS: I use malwarebytes and the windows 10 antivirus and they havent detected anything

edit for more info: the sender is from @kfda.com and said they downloaded personal information and they are demanding money or they will post private videos of myself (which i don't think they exist)

If that isn’t your password and make sure it’s not you should enable two step verification so it’s no longer possible for anybody to log onto your account and it seems like he’s just lying about the other stuff you say don’t exist

Thanks for the answer, i already have it enabled, and that password is super old, i was worreid about the trojan and the stolen information mostly, but both malwarebytes and windows denfender can't find one

Also make sure to forward that mail to the FBI they will investigate it

Explain your situation and attach it to an email to the FBI Because there is nothing less than blackmail
Im not in the USA so can't contact them, i'm searching in my country who to contact

Thank you very much for your help!
