Gmail Apps Have 92% Success Rate of Being Hacked Researchers Claim

What do you think about this headline? How do you feel when you consider the claim that all or most of your mobile apps are not only hackable but that once hacked, all or most of your sensitive and confidential information is at the finger tips of the hacker(s)?

Now let’s really get deep, shall we?

Foreman & Associates. New Domain. New Email. Still Committed to Serving You!

Effective immediately you will be able to access our website by simply typing FOREMANLLC.COM 

All of our emails also use the same domain name. This change came after several months of considering the ease of access by prospective clients. We want people to reach us quickly and without second-guessing if they spelled our name correctly. In the past we have had people forget to type the “and” or they left off the “s” at the end of “associates”. Now it’s 10 simple letters, followed by “.com”

Yes, dot com. We also realized that although we were on the high tech curve of using the snazzy “.co” the vast majority of our web visitors had never heard of or seen the “.co” and being pre-conditioned, consistently typed “.com”. So by making this change we now have made it easier to remember us and reach us, and we don’t have to worry about confusing our prospective clients. 

People can still reach us through our old domain, foremanandassociates.co,  but we believe that in time everyone will prefer the new one. It’s just easier to type and remember. 

Try it yourself. Visit http://foremanllc.com today!
