So I got an email today saying that I had a Trojan virus in my computer from a porn site (did not list site) and that they had entered my phone and had videos of me masturbating blah blah blah, and that I needed to transfer them Bitcoin otherwise they would send the video to my contacts. Obviously the email is a scam, but what I am more concerned about is the fact that my email address somehow got scraped off a porn site (I’ve never used my email for anything porn related FYI). I also received a groupme scam message the same day, although I feel like that could be a coincidence. I wouldn’t put it past porn sites to give out people’s personal data, but I am just wondering how much they have? I know they have my email, how bad is that? Do I need to scrap it and make a new one? What other information might scammers have obtained/malware put into my phone? Do I take any steps from here/are there any to take?
Not the most well versed in this type of stuff so I would really appreciate any help, thanks!
