Ledger users claim to have been receiving threatening emails as the wallet manufacturer reports 20,000 more users affected by another data breach.
Now, extortionists using the aliases Darrin Burlew and Denni Hornig sent emails to Ledger users.
In a Reddit post, a user with the account name Crypthomie shared the email coming from the blackmailers. According to a “Darrin Burlew”, he knows that this user holds a lot of cryptos and will “share all his info with the local thieves” if his demands are not met.
The blackmailer even furthered his threat by saying, “If I happen to do this, are you able to imagine all the possible consequences that can occur to you and your loved ones?”
Crypthomie also mentioned that his dad’s name, address, and phone number were written on the email he received.
On Twitter, Saleh Ahmed also shared his misfortune.
This is my actual home address in the email.
I don’t even know what to say, but @Ledger you absolutely useless waste of space.

Although carrying a different name Denni Hornig, the contents of the email show a lot of similarities from the email that Crypthomie received.
