Hi, TinyMCE Support,
I received an email on July 7, 2020 from someone claiming to be the author of the Bootstrap Plugin for TinyMCE and they stated the following:
This plugin is not free and I notice that you make an illegal use of it on your website.
So I initiated a DMCA complaint towards your host.
I remind you that the use of hacked versions is punishable by heavy fines.
If you continue to use this plugin illegally a legal action will be initiated against you without further warning.
Moreover it is already possible that your host will ban your site following the complaint sent.
Thank you for your understanding.
I need to know who and how I can verify the legitimacy of the author that is mentioned in the email sent to me. I have contacted my Host's Technical Support and they advised me to check with TinyMCE directly. I omitted in the above email the website mentioned and the author's name and email signature.
How can I send this information securely for verification; and, to know if it is a scam email?
Thanks for your assistance
