The latest scam is will shock you for a moment (unless you have read the info before):

Imagine someone emails you from your own email address and claims that he/she has control over your email, even your computer. He/she claims also having access to your webcam and recordings of you watching pornography on the web. The “hacker” asks for a ransom in bitcoin, threatening to release your files and recordings to friends and clients in your address book.

Faking people’s email has happened for years. This particular scam has been going on for a few months now. It “spoofs” you email pretending to come from your account. We want to alert you, so you don’t panic once such a mail reaches you.

While it might be a good idea to use safe passwords and change them once in a while, we have not come across a single case where a mailbox or account was actually compromised.

The email might read like this:

Hello!

I’m is very good programmer, known in darkweb as tedd40.

I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago, through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been spying for you a very long time.

I understand it is hard to believe, but you can check it yourself.

I’m sent this e-mail from your account. Try it yourself.

Even if you changed the password after that – it does not matter, my virus intercepted all the caching data on your computer and automatically saved access for me.

I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history.

Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos.

I was most struck by the intimate content sites that you occasionally visit.

You have a very wild imagination, I tell you!

During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching.

Oh my god! You are so funny and excited!

I think that you do not want all your contacts to get these files, right?

If you are of the same opinion, then I think that $219 is quite a fair price to destroy the dirt I created.

Send the above amount on my BTC wallet (bitcoin): 1JRCbCH9E3iLhSXPTqtkgfAsJNT2xD74C5

As soon as the above amount is received, I guarantee that the data will be deleted, I do not need it.

Otherwise, these files and history of visiting sites will get all your contacts from your device.

Also, I’ll send to everyone your contact access to your email and access logs, I have carefully saved it!

Since reading this letter you have 48 hours!

After your reading this message, I’ll receive an automatic notification that you have seen the letter.

I hope I taught you a good lesson.

Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don’t enter your passwords anywhere!

Good luck!

 

What can you do?

If in doubt about your email security, change your email password. Changing your password does not require contacting us – we actually only in rare cases send passwords via email due to security concerns.

Log into your webmail account at https://mydomain.com/webmail (replace mydomain.com with your domain) and enter your email and password.

On the top right, you’ll find a drop-down menu including your option to reset the password.

In case you do not recall your password, we can reset it for you.

We launched our firm’s new website yesterday and the positive feedback from our clients and friends just keep coming in. I am amazed at the talent and knowledge of Matt and his team. It took them less than 30 days to build a site from the ground up – and probably would have been faster than that if I hadn’t tied up with client work that kept me from responding to his questions!
I am absolutely delighted with the results.

Matt was very professional and responsive to my ideas and needs regarding my audience. Thank you for creating such a great website.

My friends say: “I am proud to say I knew you before you were famous!”
I’m on Facebook and posted a link to my website. 26 friends and family have posted that they like the website. I have received 19 comments. Among the comments are:
– Page is great! I love it! – Looks great! I am proud to say I knew you before you were famous! – It is a well-done site. – Great site. It’s well done. – Looks great! Congrats! – Great website! Do mine, please? – Congratulations! It’s a great website! – I like it … And I have seen more than my fair share of law firm
websites… – Great page. Great photo. Well done.

Matt at AWebsiteForLawyers.com responded to my initial email within an hour. Then he took almost an hour to talk to me and patiently answered ALL my questions. Today my web marketing is cost efficient and effective.  I currently have eighteen Google first page listings for important search terms! I’m saving over $30,000.00 this year.

This was the perfect choice for my firm. Matt and his team helped me to publish my site quickly for a great price. Working with them was like taking a course in building an online business. I highly recommend their services.

Anthony Korda,

Thank you for a quick, efficient and very professional web site that you created for me.
You created my web site, including revisions and additions, in a mere six (6) days. It is very professional looking, and very interactive for potential and existing clients. I think your efforts for me were outstanding, and I will be happy to recommend you to all of my associates in the legal profession.

AWebsiteForLawyers.com worked hard to have my domain name transferred from an Australian registrar. They did it without extra charges and built an appealing site with several first page listings on Google, Yahoo and Bing. Their service has a short response time and has helped me numerous times with precious hints.

Kelly Chaves,
The Woodlands, TX

The site looks very nice. Five days after launching I am on the first page locally, that’s pretty good!!!
Great work. Thanks!

Attorney Edward N. Marasi

AWebsiteForLawyers has always been very helpful and answered all my questions and concerns. Now they offered me a redesign and search engine optimization for a tempting price. Two weeks later I found myself with nine first page listings on Google, four of those on the first position. Within one week one new client has already paid off my investment.

Judith Ashbaugh,
Tulsa Immigration Attorney

AWebsiteforlawyers.com began working on my firm’s website within minutes after I placed my order. They continued to work with me to refine the contents of the site to best attract new clients as a start-up operation. They provided a cost effective website design in a timely fashion. I would recommend them without hesitation to other firms who have not previously utilized the internet as a marketing tool.

David Walters,
Las Vegas Immigration Lawyer

Matt helped me set up first professional website, over a dozen years ago, and has done a great job helping me with all the many changes my website has gone through over the years, and has even helped with hosting my creative website as well. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an outstanding website, and lots of personal care and attention with maintaining it!
