A video has surfaced showing a Reddit user making an appeal for support in a thread asking for help in a massive and seemingly pointless spam attack against Redditors.
The user’s name is John, and he says he’s been receiving messages for more than three weeks from a troll, asking for donations in exchange for his personal information.
The message is accompanied by a link to a website that promises to help the user collect personal data for the purpose of “tracking your browsing history, posting your profile and other information to your website and social media accounts.”
John says the troll, who appears to be using the pseudonym “Krzysztof,” is offering $10,000 to anyone who can provide his personal data.
The Reddit user is asking for a response by Thursday.
