Hello,

This mail is fake, it doesn’t matter if you pay to him or not he doesn’t has nothing of your information. If you want to be sure 100% scan your computer if it has virus or not. But just ignore it is random message and change password of some important account.

Have a great day

Something I’ve found helpful since you mentioned passwords is to have a different password for everything.
But this is done in a way that I can remember.

Maybe you have a password, but then you add something to it using a consistent strategy.

Yes this sounds confusing, let me explain.
For example, Amazon could be "your Password"262966.
That’s “Amazon” turned into numbers using a telephone keypad.

There are lots of strategies to use, and I won’t divulge mine here, but this makes it so you can
have a different password for everything.
Cheers!

Here’s what you should do now,

  1. Check if your email or phone is in a data breach, by using https://haveibeenpwned.com/

  2. Use a Open-Source Password Manager, i recommends
    https://keepassxc.org/

  3. Upgrade McAfee to Kaspersky Total antivirus, i have 1 year subs key if you want (DM me). ofcourse its free of cost :smiley:

  4. Lastly, but so important…
    use any of temporary mail site, do not put your personal mail everywhere you browse.
    i recommends, temp-mail.org/ or https://relay.firefox.com/

Happy Learning!
Stay Safe!
