  1. Hello!

    I was the person that was attacked. This email was sent on my behalf by an unknown party, and I can attest that it caused a big headache for my personal brand, as well as my day-to-day operations as a Technical Recruiter.

    I just wanted to comment that it has been resolved, and my account is now secure. Please let me know if there is anything I could do to further this.

    Side note: Because this shows up on the second page of Google when searching my name….. is there any timeline or thing I can do to get this removed from showing up when people type my name? Thanks!
