The issue in GetHuman3793033's own words
Hi there,*I recently received an email which went into the scam folder of my yahoo account. The person who sent the email claimed he has the password to my yahoo account hence, also has access to all my personal data. He is asking of me to send him $*** bitcoins within * days upon receipt of his request, otherwise, he will publish*disclose my personal data in the dark web, to my contacts, and other social media websites. I have reported this issue to the local police who has advised i report it to Yahoo instead for investigation. I have made screengrab of the email and the sender's email address. At the same time, i also received an email of some purchases via Apple Pay. I do not have an Apple Pay ID and i did not make any purchase from Apple lately. The Apple ID appeared to have been created using my yahoo account. I have no idea how genuine it is of the scammer's claim that he possessed all my personal data. As the password that he claimed to have of my yahoo account was an old one. I have changed the password previously, switched to Yahoo account key. However, because of this scam, i have now deactivated my account key and used a new password. I don't know if this helps at all, and i would really need Yahoo to look into this to safeguard my interest. This is worrying. Hence, i hope Yahoo can look into this soon and contact me on the outcome. I have screengrab the scam mail and the scammer's email address. I can share that with Yahoo if it helps better in their investigation. Thank you.
