Heads up: a particularly nasty sextortion Bitcoin scam from at least the middle of 2018 is making the rounds once again.
The scam involves making use of old breach dumps, then emailing someone from the list and reminding them of their old password.
When something lands in your mailbox with “Hey, remember this?” it’s a surefire way to focus the reader’s attention. Pressure is then applied to start sending over some Bitcoin…or else.
