JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A Johns Creek teenager met with police Oct. 25 after she received an email containing her personal information and threats.

The teenager received the anonymous email two days prior. The sender included a document listing all of the teenager’s personal accounts and passwords, and they demanded the teenager deposit $1,200 to a secure Bitcoin account. 

If the teenager did not comply, the sender said they would upload all of her passwords and photos online.

The teenager contacted police instead.
