We all know that spam can be a major problem for email users. However, when you get a scary email that says “Your email has been hacked”, and you must donate some amount of bitcoin to prevent them releasing awkward photos of you this can leave you on edge.
We’ve also seen a new bitcoin spam lately that says “Soon your hosting account and your domain will be blocked forever”. The email implies that they will spam other websites, pretending to be yours and that your account will be suspended by your host.
What should you do?
First off, do not send any money. Even if these emails were true, you do not know that they would stick to their word. Secondly, you should delete the email. Thirdly make sure you are using a different and unique password for each account and finally check your mailbox settings to make sure that remote image display is turned off for maximum protection. If you are concerned about your account, you can always contact us.
