So the next time you read a bad review for a service provided.

Just be aware of this.

 In my neck of the woods. The email says the price is 300 bucks not to be attacked.

Thanks for the heads-up.

The world (I should say: human race) is going mental...

Hello!

Depending on where they are, properly documented, it could very well be a prosecutable offense, for which the penalties are fairly severe. Last I checked, this kind of blackmail is against the law.

Has anyone reported this to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center? If they get enough folks carrying on about it, they MIGHT do something...
