Although I agree, that the story sounds a little suspicious, I think, we
can find a better way than to simply deny the request.
One could send an email announcing the possible account transfer to the
original email address. If there is no reply within e.g. a month, we can
more or less safely assume, that the story is true.

Should the decision later proof wrong, that should not be such a big
issue, regarding the fact that there is no personal data stored except
for the _public_ key and especially since the only package is your own
