" it's possible the extortionist may be unaware of MAC addresses."

I doubt it. If the dude was able to come up with a QR-code for an extortion letter, he/she is most likely IT literate, and probably knows full well what a MAC address is. BTW, if this is the case and they read this article, they now know full well they need to dispose from that Lenovo device ... now.
