DA MP Phumzile van Damme says she is not bothered by an email threatening to leak pictures and videos of her if she does not pay up. In the email, which she shared on Twitter, the extortionist threatens to share "photos and videos of your (Van Damme's) most passionate funs with adult content (sic)". The person demands that Van Damme transfer $829 to a Bitcoin cryptocurrency wallet and the account will be deleted.Van Damme was given 48 hours to respond. "I'm not taking it seriously at all. I've asked the IT department to look at it but it seems to be something going on in South Africa," Van Damme told News24. Giggling, Van Damme told News24 she had nothing to worry about because she also did not have "that kind of content".

I am not at all concerned, it seems to be a scam that is doing the rounds," she said. Van Damme tweeted on Thursday, after sharing the email: "The email scammers are trying hard shame. Unshaken. No Bitcoin transfer coming from me". In the email the scammer states that he/she is a spyware software developer and that Van Damme's account has been hacked in the "summer of 2018".
