To be clear this did NOT happen to me but many users on reddit
Just figured I’d pass on this warning, I just read through a TON of reports of about a potential data breach at nicotine river.
For more info
Copy and paste follows here
"irst, emphasis on the word “Possible.” I am making this post to both warn people and determine if it is widespread. So if you have ordered from them recently please check your email/spam and comment if you have received a similar email.
I use an email forwarding service that generates a unique email address for each website/online account I use and forwards all messages to my regular inbox. I have exposed this address only once, a single order at Nicotine River about 6 months ago. I am relatively confident that Nicotine River is the source of the breach, as I have witnessed this several times with the email system I use.
Today I received a classic scam email to that address:
Stolen personal information in the subject line (such as name, password, or address) to get your attention Threat that they had obtained a video from my webcam to blackmail me with ("hand to gland combat" haha). Demanding payment in crypto currency to prevent spreading the video to family and friends
It is unclear what information was extracted. The email subject was my real “firstname lastname ID########.” I’m unsure what the 8 digit ID number is. Possibly a customer ID from a CRM database?"
