One Bowling Green woman didn’t want to take any chances when she received an email demanding thousands of dollars from someone she’s never met.

Everyday over 205-billion emails are sent across the world. On November 20th, Deborah West, received an email blackmailing her for money.

West works from home everyday on her computer. With technology evolving she was concerned her livelihood might be affected if her computer was actually hacked.
