Why?

As long as they haven't gone to any of the links etc. They should be fine. Although, if they are worried then they could change their passwords.

Umm, what if that scammer is using BIP32 for sucker-tracking?

Reusing addresses is deprecated, you know.

Yes there are some email scrapers out there targeting Bitcoiners and sending scams like this.

Do NOT click any links in these kind of emails - or open ANY image or doc attachments!
