A report said that some users have begun receiving threatening e-mails demanding a $500 payment or else risk being attacked in their homes. While users affected by the Ledger data dump are threatening legal action, some wallet owners might be at the risk of being visited by criminals. 

It has been reported that this development opens up another risk factor for Ledger users whose private information has been leaked by the hacker.

However, apart from home invasions, the affected Ledger owners also have to deal with phishing and SIM swapping exploits, among others.

The report said that actual robberies connected to Bitcoin (BTC) are not uncommon, especially when the victim is known to be a holder of the popular cryptocurrency.
