In my spam folder I received and email entitled I Know, which claims to have installed malware RAT that has videos me in a compromising situation and wants ransom to prevent these videos from being published. It then states the malware has been removed without a trace. The email has displayed a very old unused password of mine.

A quick scan with Avira shows no detection and MBAM free is currently scanning. I don't notice any problems with the pc. There were never any compromising situations in front of this pc camera and the camera also has tape over the lens.

What should be the next step ? Or just ignore it as scam as shown in some search engines?
