Essential screwed up big time. First they sent me request for additional data. I told them to screw themselves and cancel my order.

Then I started to get lots of mails from other customers, most with their personal data:

And it's going strong!

I also got a email. Asking for your passport is totally a false flag.

Essential screwed up. I created an email for this purchase yesterday, and that was the one abused. So Essential, you were accessed in the last 24 hours.

Glad I took my precautions.

You could have at least blurred out the email, phone number and other personal information before posting this out. Good job, you just aided in spreading personal information to others.

It's been reported every where someone got into the essential email servers and started sending out these emails requesting bogus information. Probably some pissed off Samsung fan boy haha.
