Honestly, I'm not sure that there is even a way around the redirect. My MNMazda bookmark is for the main forums page, and when I try to go there I keep getting sent back to that notice. The text of the notice doesn't sound like something a scammer would write; the author is definitely local. We need to hear AJ's side of the story for sure, but I think it would be wise if we do not put any money into the "donation" (e.g. ransom) until we know exactly what's going on.
