PSA for everyone who also has an account at the Fred Miranda forums:


I’ve received two of these sextortion mails. Normally those are not worthy of attention, but in this case the sender tried to scare me into paying by mentioning, in clear text, my FM password!

Admittedly, the displayed password (now changed) was all lowercase, which my old password wasn’t, but it proves that somehow, at some point, the user/password database of FM has been hacked/stolen!

So ignore the sextortion mail but please take the proper precautions and change password(s) if you are, or once have been, a registered user of the Fred Miranda forum. Especially if you’ve used the password elsewhere too!
