Your Email Account Has Been Deactivated

Imagine waking up one day only to find out that your email account has been deactivated and the contents seized by some alphabet soup government organization.

That's exactly what happened to one unsuspecting Gmail™ user not long ago.

At the order of a judge, Google® was required to deactivate the user's account and disclose certain private details to the court

Did the Gmail™ user break a law or perhaps violate Google's Terms of Service?


In fact, the user did absolutely nothing wrong according to all parties involved.

This is what happens when placed on leave at BOE. It gives the tech department time to get rid of incriminating evidence.
