Received email saying infected with RAT Virus, demanding Bitcoin Ransom. Real or fake? Help removing???

Hello,
I just received the following email from a random email address:
Hiya [My Real Full Name]
Maybe you have heard details about the RAT virus 77975? Well, i would like to compliment you now, you have became a pleased owner of my very own type of this soft. I have succeeded to locate many interesting stuff on your personal computer plus I've been able to get in touch with all your systems, including a cell phone. But these are each one is small things compared to following. I've set my program to fully capture a microphone, a computer camera, and an photo from your monitor, and created a couple of movies. I think some of them may be interesting for you. The most fascinating part is the fact that my program saved is the minute you check out a porn site. I have even spent 30 mins of my personal time to combine 2, one is an a graphic from display screen and the other picture from livecam. It was hilarious Okay, let's get right to the point. I suggest you send 170 Usd to my account
1AZNc6Pb8iRTaLGouA6w87EqvUNnoEj3AB
I only use BTC. When you yourself have issues sending just use any search engine. Soon after. We're going both forget about this unpleasant situation and erase all the data I've collected from your systems. You have just exactly 3 days. If I do not acquire my bucks, I will give all the info to the contact list I came across on your own computer systems Maybe I am going to get it done along with your social accounts. It will be very funny if all your family be given a footage with this kind. There is a limited mainly because my wallets typically get blocked and you need to transfer before that. Certainly, you are not the only real dude receiving a letter of this type, I have infected over 5000 individuals and more than 3000 of these were with useful data on their devices. You are able to get in touch with cops, assume its pointless, the worst type of thing they can do is block my wallet. So don't do stupid shit. If I will not receive my money for just about any reason, which include the inability to transfer them to a blacklisted account, your reputation will undoubtedly be destroyed. So move! I take care of my security and use the temporary e-mail to mail messages, furthermore I am on the web from my special laptop and i only use illegal Wi fi from different companies moreover i personally use TOR. Thus, getting in touch with me and giving answers to to this notice will not make any good sense."
WHAT SHOULD I DO?? Is this real?? Its vague enough to make me doubt its authenticity, as it could be sent to anyone pretty much with those details.. but on the other hand it could absolutely be true.
Is there a way to detect/remove a RAT Virus?
May be related:I'm on mac, and when I open the Finder, you have your "favorites" iCloud" devices" etc on the left. There is a "Shared" tab, with a little computer monitor titled "rmbu-3jmdvf2" I have no clue what that is. When I click get info, it says kind: PC, Where: Network.. Should I be concerned?

The three things that keep me up at night.

Tonight I read this article and while it doesn’t get too deep into the technical weeds, I thought I could do better by breaking down some of the IT threats and concerns that keep me up at night into more of a non-tech person’s language while giving real world examples why this stuff really does matter to everyone, not just the uber nerds, naysayers, and tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorists.
https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2020/09/18/a-real-life-maze-ransomware-attack-if-at-first-you-dont-succeed/
Security (both digital and physical) is something most people don’t understand and as a result they act like an ostrich by burying their head in the sand; if I can’t see it, it can’t see me. Until recently I was an IT consultant and would frequently bring this up to my clients. The usual reply I hear is along the lines of “but my company doesn’t have much money, isn’t a bank, doesn’t do anything interesting, etc. so they aren’t going to target me and I don’t have anything to worry about.” Sadly, this isn’t the case. These crooks “spray and pray” and will victimize anyone who gets caught in their snare. They will send out hundreds of millions of emails, compromise thousands of websites, and make tens of thousands of robocalls all with the expectation that they are only going to be able to victimize 0.0001% of their attempts.
For years there have been two big threats in the IT world that literally keep me up at night; regulatory compliance and ransomware. There is now a third, extortionware.
Regulatory compliance is an area business owners and executives commonly overlook because they don’t think it applies to their company because they’re not in health care or banking. PCI (Payment Card Industry), PII (Personal Identifiable Information), HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), and HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) are the most common compliance standards and now cover just about every company in existence in the United States. If the company takes credit cards of any kind there are some levels of PCI compliance that they need to be adhered with. PII covers most HR information like social security numbers or driver license numbers. HIPAA and HITECH both cover information related to health records. This is one that most companies overlook because they don’t realize things like workmen’s compensation claims, HR records that discuss health related issues, etc. are all covered by these standards. Fines from the governing bodies that cover their respective compliance standards are usually preventable because they have general guidelines that cover what needs to be done to be in compliance on the logistical, physical, and digital fronts. If your company does anything with the European Union, then GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new regulation that has some pretty serious consequences if not followed properly.
Ransomware is a genre of computer virus that is just evil. It encrypts your data and give you a very short period of time (typically only a couple days) to pay the ransom using untraceable funds transfers via cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. If you don’t pay the ransom in time they will delete the decryption key thus destroying all your data. If you do pay the ransom then chances are you will get your data back however you are likely very literally funding terrorism and/or some other kind of organized crime. These ransoms are also meant to be payable but be painful to pay. The newer ransomware variants will scan your network to get an idea of how big it is then adjust the ransom accordingly; the more devices, the higher the ransom. Typical ransoms start around a few thousand dollars and work their way up hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. If you’re infected with these viruses then the best course of action to remove it is to wipe your entire network (all servers, workstations, firewall and switch configs, etc.) and rebuild it from scratch while restoring your important data from backups into a separate clean environment, scanning it for any traces of the virus, then moving it into the newly rebuilt network. While this is typically more expensive than paying the ransom it is the only way you can be sure the virus is no longer on your network and thus capable of infecting everything all over again and repeating the ransom process.
Extortionware is similar to its older sibling ransomware in that the virus typically does all the same things however it adds an even more sinister twist, it copies your data offsite to a server only the criminals can access. They do this because of the increased number of companies that have opted to not pay the ransom and just rebuild their network. Using extortionware the criminals now have the company’s intellectual property (usually proprietary), HR data, internal memos, financial data, emails, etc.. Did someone say something unflattering about someone else in an email, did HR have a spreadsheet with every employee’s SSNs, hire dates, etc., or are there private financial records relating to an upcoming acquisition that your competitors shouldn’t know about? All of this and more will be used by the criminals to extort money from the company. This means that even if you have a rock solid backup of all your data, you still need to pay to prevent your data from being released to the public and/or press.
While this post just scratches the surface, it does cover the highlights on why I push for stronger passwords (longer is better than higher complexity https://xkpasswd.net), keeping non-company owned and unmanaged devices off internal networks, multiple factor authentication on everything, never sharing your passwords with anyone, running regular security related exercises, using unique passwords on everything, and using a reputable password manager to keep track of all your passwords.
