I've had about 5 of them already in the last 3 days. I've been trying to figure which website got hacked, since it is an older password. Still not sure, but maybe Toms Hardware UK? They're clearly doing a shotgun approach, since I don't use (and never have) any of the services "Messenger, Outlook, Facebook" they're attempting to blackmail with.
Here is the message in full, for those interested in how these folks try to extort money:

"It seems that, (*****), is your password. You may not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this e mail, right?

actually, I setup a malware over the adult videos (porno) web-site and guess what, you visited this site to have fun (you know very well what I mean). Whilst you were watching videos, your internet browser started off functioning as a RDP (Team Viewer) which gave me accessibility to your screen and web camera. and then, my software program obtained your complete contacts from the Messenger, Outlook, Facebook, along with emails.

What did I really do?

I produced a double-screen video. First part shows the video you were seeing (you have a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your webcam.

exactly what should you do?

Well, in my opinion, $1500 is a fair price for our little secret. You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google)."

(It's case sensitive, so copy and paste it)

You've got few days in order to make the payment. (I've a special pixel within this e mail, and at this moment I am aware that you have read this email message). If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send out your videos to all of your contacts including family, co-workers, and so forth. Having said that, if I get the payment, I'll destroy the recording immidiately. If you need evidence, reply with "Yes!" and i'll undoubtedly send out your video recording to your 6 contacts. It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said don't waste my personal time and yours by answering this message."
