Seems like a phishing attempt, WHOIS of that email server gives me nothing: https://www.whois.com/whois/e-room.ru

Maybe if you are brave just mail that guy and check what he is suggesting, which btc adress etc. But be cautious, don't provide any information/private keys etc.

Yes, this could be true, the bitcoin database got hacked back in 2013 and its content were being sold on the deep web, https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/hacked-bitcointalk-org-user-data-goes-up-for-sale-on-dark-web/

If you had an account back in 2013 with a weak password, it would be wise to change it as they could easily be cracked.
