Lawyer Gerald Chipeur Provides Understanding With E-mail Fraud
Security today plays a big part in everything that we do. The Calgary News article “Former Alberta justice minister’s ex-wife denies retracting allegations of wrongdoing” testifies to this. As a result Lawyer Gerald Chipeur Provides Understanding in this case.
A person claiming to be the ex-wife ‘Breanne Palmer’ denies that she withdrew any allegations. The allegations stated that Denis was aggressive and verbally abusive. But in emails the information is that she did.
Lawyer Gerald Chipeur Stated the following. “Sworn court documents indicate the e-mail address used to send the messages withdrawing the allegations belongs to Palmer”. Gerald Chipeur was a lawyer for Denis. Also the article stated that the court did not deal with the authentication of the emails. But postmedia did receive a response stating that the emails in this case were not authentic.
What Could Have Happen
There are a couple of things to look at. Dropping of the charges towards Denis happened. This is because the proceedings did not go any farther with the emails authentication. At least from the article in the Calgary Sun it looks this way. The other thing is bouncing the email through the email IP of Palmer could have taken place. This is how spam travels to different people and organizations. The original sender is not seen. Also someone could have hacked into Palmer’s email without her knowing it. Thus the hacker would have used Palmer’s email address to send the messages.
I had to read the article more than once to understand what took place. It sure looks like a case of email fraud that changed the outcome in the favor of Denis. The case revolved around a publication ban on the dispute between Denis and Palmer. A judge lifted this publication ban.
The whole electronic situation could be talked about more. But I think that it would be best to leave it alone at the present time. The case was not about electronic misgivings. It was about their dispute and the publication ban on it.
This proves the importance of cyber security on the web. Remembering your password is not always the best. Using a application like LastPass is the better way to keep your password safe. Do not rely on your web browser to save your password(s).
Getting back your cyber accounts is time consuming. Sometimes you never get your cyber accounts back.
Cyber Security Close to Home
It is interesting that just I was writing this post a friend of mine called me to look at his site. The site looked OK. When I went to go into his back office for the site a warning that a phishing attack most likely has occurred. This was according to google. This was not a good result especially because this was a business site. Situations like my friend’s could end up with serious negative results.
Thus if you are dealing with email or websites remember to Stop, think, and then connect. Remember to use both website and password security measures all the time. Finally know where you are going on the web and who the emails are from you are opening. Even then you are vulnerable to outside attacks. It is because you have connected to the internet. Cyber security is everyone’s business.
