    I got one of these emails. It had a password that I used 20 years ago when I had a Prodigy email account. I have not used that password ever again for anything, so am wondering if this information came from old Prodigy accounts?

      It may have. The thieves ohave gotten old passwords stolen from big tech companies a few years and using it to try and exploit their victims. But, all those old passwords have been changed so there is nothing to worry about. Just ignore the scammers.
