We have been getting a few of these annoying emails lately and I would like to try and block them using content filtering.

 

anyone suggest a good method to block based on the following email.

 

(partial content of email below)

 

What should you do?

 

Well, I think $624 (USD dollars) is a fair price for our little secret.

You will make a bitcoin payment (if you don't know, look for "how to buy bitcoins" on Google).

 

BTC Address: 1GjZSJnpU4AfTS8vmre6rx7eQgeMUq8VYr

(This is CASE sensitive, please copy and paste it)

 

Remarks:

You have 2 days (48 hours) to pay. (I have a special code, and at the moment I know that you have read this email).

Hi Richard,

 

It would be best to contact support for this. That way we can get this variant updated in our rules to help block these.

If possible could the rule be posted here for anyone wanting to add it?

We we're receiving lots of emails about bitcoin so we decided to block the word "Bitcoin" period.  We don't use bitcoin nor do we plan too so it was easy to block adding this to the content filter: [B|b]itcoin\w*
