This is what I got in my email. This came through from About ME and it has my email under my domain name.
This worm is exactly what I get everyday and I am getting sick of it. I delete it over and over. It still whithers through, like a snake ready to attack.
Do I think its real? Its like a threat, and asking me for a ransom claims my website is hacked and now I gotta pay for it out of Bitcoins?
Believe this or not?
I removed my domain name from here because its not ready to be activated yet.
I REMOVED THE LINKS SO NOBODY CAN CLICK IT.

"Message: PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO SOMEONE IN YOUR COMPANY WHO IS ALLOWED TO MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS!"
"We have hacked your website; and extracted your databases."
"How did this happen?"
"Our team has found a vulnerability within your site that we were able to exploit. After finding the vulnerability we were able to get your database credentials and extract your entire database and move the information to an offshore server."
"What does this mean?"
"We will systematically go through a series of steps of totally damaging your reputation. First your database will be leaked or sold to the highest bidder which they will use with whatever their intentions are."
"Next if there are e-mails found they will be e-mailed that their information has been sold or leaked and your site was at fault thusly damaging your reputation and having angry customers/associates with whatever angry customers/associates do."
"Lastly any links that you have indexed in the search engines will be de-indexed based off of blackhat techniques that we used in the past to de-index our targets."
"How do I stop this?"
"We are willing to refrain from destroying your site\'s reputation for a small fee. The current fee is $2000 USD in bitcoins (BTC)."
"Send the bitcoin to the following Bitcoin address"
"Once you have paid we will automatically get informed that it was your payment."
"Please note that you have to make payment within 5 days after receiving this notice or the database leak, e-mails dispatched, and de-index of your site WILL start!"
"How do I get Bitcoins?"
"You can easily buy bitcoins via several websites or even offline from a Bitcoin-ATM. We suggest you www.com for buying bitcoins."
"What if I don’t pay?"
"If you decide not to pay, we will start the attack at the indicated date and uphold it until you do, there’s no counter measure to this, you will only end up wasting more money trying to find a solution."
"We will completely destroy your reputation amongst google and your customers."
"This is not a hoax, do not reply to this email, don’t try to reason or negotiate, we will not read any replies."
"Once you have paid we will stop what we were doing and you will never hear from us again!"
"Please note that Bitcoin is anonymous and no one will find out that you have complied."
What is my next step? Remove the About ME and no emails. See if that dumb snakes will stop withering through. I never had problems with my other domain at another site.
This only happens on WA.
I have been trying to prove that there is a flaw in our WA mail server and I got to put a stop to it.
Scammers and spammers are annoying part of the Internet world today.
Please do not be fooled and be a sucker. I aint gonna fall for this. This is so dumb.
Also the English looks a little bad. Not properly written so its
Tell me what y'all think? Eh?
