This article was originally posted on January 21st, 2021 after we received the first phishing emails from this scammer. We added images on January 24, 2021 when we received more emails.
On January 25, 2021 - the domain was sold to another person. While we don't know anything about the new domain owner, it should be pointed out that the .COM domain is now under new ownership (see domain tools public information here).
Either way, these emails shown above are still a SCAM, don't click the links or follow the domain that was demanding payment (as seen in our text and images above) ends with .ga which is a domain ending for the country Gabon, located in Central Africa.
I've been programming, designing, writing and publishing professionally online since 1995. I've worn many hats throughout my life, but the common core of my career has always been media. Besides theportfolio you see on TNW Creations, my internet presence has been substantial for over 2 decades. In 1995, while still in college, I founded TNW Creations and became part of the grassroots development for teaching the Lakhota language online. By 2004, my bilingual work was listed on many sites, including National Geographic , Encarta and Touchstone Pictures Hidalgo. When I'm not developing and writing, you'll find me managing MagicStoryLand.Com, creating kid-friendly game & video content, investigating and initating hostile website takedowns, posting salty articles about cyber threats, moderating UnifyLife.Org and enjoying my community, church & family.
