Received and email with my password

Hi folks, I just got an email with the first line saying “this is your password ___” and they were right. They email went on to say they had a key logger on a virtual desktop which gave them access to my webcam, not sure it works like that lol, and then they said they would leak pictures of me watching porn to facebook and my phone contacts if I don’t send them bitcoin. I obviously know not to do it. My question is how can I find where that password was leaked to and if I should waste time tracing the email back (tips would be great).

Follow up; is this a common thing going on now? I am in the industry and take every precaution when it comes to online security, let alone they could’ve used the password for something better like accessing the account. I’m assuming 2FA screwed up their plan and this was their backup option.

Since you’re using a unique password for every site (right???) you’ll know exactly where the password came from…

This is an old yahoo hack trick. Most likely an older email password dump.

Ignore.

Stop watching porn. It’s makes you sick.
