Hello, My name is Mike, I'm 63 years old and I live in Fort Mohave, Az.


I registered with you today so that I could say thank you to Blood Dolly and this site. 


Several years ago I got caught by the ransom virus and many of my files were encrypted and I was not able to use them. I was so mad! I couldn't believe this guy had the nerve to want to charge me access to my own files! I am stubborn but I had given up hope of every using the files again. The files contained some photos of my mom, who has since passed away, there were photos with her and I on vacation, some documents, a few videos, etc. I am sure you know the drama that goes along with the ransom virus so I will just say that the files that were encrypted were VERY important to me.


I saved the files, just in case someone ever figured out a way to decode them and to my surprise I recently discovered The Tesla decoder and Yafu.


I managed to use it and decoded my files and I am so HAPPY! I wanted to say thank you very much for all your efforts in preparing the solution and sharing it with people like me. I am so thrilled and pleased to have these files back in their original condition, i just can't thank you enough!


I have been smiling for three days!
