@Xhaster if they start Changing your wallpaper, start putting putting files or deleting files on your device, higher than usual data consumption or WiFi usage etc. Then then you can suspect some malware ( not necessarily Pegasus) or app which has granted remote access to your device. Email hacks are child's play.

Pegasus is not only controversial but very expensive. According to The New York Times, in 2016 the cost was upwards of $650,000, plus a $500,000 set-up fee, to install Pegasus on 10 phones

What are you doing at desidimeif you have such friends 😂

Majority of OEM's has patched the loopholes which use to  Pegasus use as per my knowledge. 

I would suggest you to first inspect device thoroughly

Hmm majority of the people don't have experience with these, Internet suggesting to use MVT for scanning.

Hello dimer, I think it has affected you and not your friend because ur Id is itself somewhat similar to website the scammer is mentioning.🌚.

Jokes apart, it's fake Pegasus.

But got access to email or some data breach.

Maybe through installed app or website visited.

Block that email, search for help from Google.

Currently both the devices are switched off. And bank balance taken into some other account.

Will pass this suggestion as well. ❤️

Why is the mail calling her pervert, or the name was deliberately changed guruji?

I think it's a template email, which spanmers send to everyone in bulk. Whoever has done something like this will might get scared and do something stupid.

Lol.

It's fake. I have seen same type of messagee with pretty much same wording, years ago on online forums.

The only issue seems that your friend may have set a weak password for his email and the fraudster somehow figured it out. 

Please do know that Pegasus is a high profile malware and sold to governments and government agencies and is used to spy on VVIPs or person of special interest to governments.
