Email hacks

Ronald from Massey

Over night I received an e-mail telling me that they (the person sending the email) had been watching me search and or use porn sites on the web. They also said if I didn't log on to another site and purchase $750 worth of bit coins they would further hack me and post images of me accessing said sites. Problem is I don't go to such sites and I wouldn't know how to buy bit coins if I wanted to. I'll either find out or I wont I guess as they gave me 50 hours to make the purchase. As a self employed person I often get rubbish emails, some asking me to give money to a 10 year old squashed by an elephant, others telling me if I provide my bank account they can pay me the $40 million I've been left by and aunt I never heard of. I ignore them for the stupid attempt they are, all though some are getting more and more sophisticated and will suck even savvy people in. This one is different, its a direct threat, a direct attempt to extort. They even told me not to make a complaint as whoever I complain to wont be able to trace them any more than I would. So watch this space ill report it and report back on any developments, off to change all my passwords now.

My quest to raise funds for an abused mum with two young kids

Yvonne from Henderson

Hello there

In short, my dear friend has recently come out of an almost year long mentally & physically abusive relationship & I am hoping to reach out to the masses to get her back on her feet.

Please click on the below link & check out my Give A Little page & donate if you wish to, but more so, again, only if you feel comfortable in doing so, please pass my below link onto anyone you know who would be happy to make a donation, even if it's only $1 or $2, if I can reach out to 5,000 people & they donate that small amount, my goal will have been reached & I would be able to spread some true Christmas joy to a family in need.

I am new to this Give A Little thing, but needed to do something to help someone very close to me, out of her current predicament. I have set up a Give A Little page for my friend & her young kids who have become victims of a situation that has left them homeless & with no car. If you wish to ask any questions or know more information I will reply to any messages I receive.

Below is the link to my Give a Little page:


Thank you sincerely for taking the time to read my post & please, even if it's only to 1 or 2 people you know who might also be willing to donate, passing my post/link on, will help me tremendously in my quest.

Sincerest Regards
