Hello, sorry to hear that. It’s not too difficult to reset or bypass the password. There are several great options on this page: https://www.quora.com/I-forgot-my-Windows-10-admin-password-How-can-I-recover-it and Microsoft has an easy solution they published here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ie/help/4028457/windows-10-reset-your-local-account-password
You may also try this out if you can access the account:
- Right-click the Start Menu and go to Computer Management > Users > Local Users and Groups.
- Right-click the Administrator account and select Set Password.
If this does not work for you, visit the links I shared. They have a lot of options that you will find helpful.
These scams are definitely becoming very popular. A previous one also showed the last digits from your phone number.
Sadly, these types of emails have become popular lately. Your information such as full name, email address, password, and phone number was obtained following a breach of a third-party website or service such as Adobe or LinkedIn. The scammer is using your leaked information to frighten you into paying them.
Change your password and ignore these messages as they are only threats. You will still receive these messages even if you pay.
You can search where your email account information was leaked using the search feature on this website: https://haveibeenpwned.com/
Please be aware that the scammer uses a third-party email spoofing service to make it appear as if the email was sent to your account. There should not be malware on your computer and no one should have logged into your account.
Hope this helps!
Hello, thanks for showing us this. Just like other email scams in the past this is a scam. The email is sent using an emailing spoofing service and any information about you that is included in the email message was obtained during a breach.
