It's never happened to me before now. I was playing PS4 like any other normal casual human being. Out of no where, this random nerd messages me with all of my personal details, family members, and the best one yet, my girlfriends information. I have heard stories about people doing these things to people. I'm not scared about it, it's more of a feeling that I'm mostly worried about being swatted from it.

well, yeah. That is true. It just blows my mind that people sit at their computer running scripts.

Usually only more well known people are swatted, especially on stream, so, you don't have a thing to worry about.

I've seen popular YouTubers who do this for entertainment.
The way they get your personal info is from one of your friends, cause your friends a d*ck and wants to prank you.
The YouTuber will then scare the hell out of you trying to get you to beg for mercy basically then at the end they'll be like, "na man I'm kidding your buddy Alex asked me to do this gg no re."

I wouldn't sweat it too much unless you posted your personal info all over the internet.
I'd say this YouTube thing is the case, good luck though.

Suprisingly it's pretty easy to do this if you know how. The hardest part is just getting somebodies IP and from there it's just research upon that.

Just realised you're a YouTuber, probably found out most of the information through that.

You don't need to worry, I know it can be scary and frustrating at times but don't be. There's nothing you can do but is to report it to Sony or even block the person. Maybe take a screenshot so if the police/FBI/Twatteam does come you can just explain the story. It sucks you live out of the EU (America) because they take it seriously unfortunately..
