I got two threatening "sextortion" e-mails blackmailing for bitcoin. Anyone else get anything like this recently and if so what did you do? I can't believe something like this would happen here at Wealthy Affiliate!

That’s unnerving. Scary stuff. This is the first I’ve heard of it.

Hi, Rob

I read about those e-mails today in WA Live Chat.
So you are not alone.

Cheers

Alex

Yes, it is blackmail epidemic. Also today a lot of WA hosted websites are down (without any option to login). May be it is somehow conected.

Disabled the email for that site

How would you get email from others that you really need then? I've had this happen on both of my sites.

It looks like the problem in site security.
