I just got hit with this today

They apparently got my email address (hasn't changed since the 90s) and some super old password (also from the 90s) to try to scam me out of money. Now I do google porn but my webcam has been disabled since I got this laptop. Nice try, not.

Unfortunately I did still use that password for wifi (easy to remember) and my Amazon password was also an oldie from when Amazon first started. So to be safe I updated those (pita to get back into modem and extender, change wifi passwords and reconnect a dozen+ devices, hence I never did it)

Still a bit concerning to find out my email and some old password are out there :/
