A new email phishing scam attempts to blackmail people into giving them gift card codes by threatening to share explicit contact with their friends and family.

The BBB warns that the scam targets people using information that has been leaked through various database breaches in recent years. They use small tidbits of personalized information to try and trick people into buying gift cards and giving the codes to the scammers.

The BBB recommends that people pay close attention to all details, and report anything that appears unusual.
