  1. Hello guys, So this might be a question that sounds a little strange but here I go. Recently I got attacked by this .nlah ransomware. I am aware that I cannot get my data back unless I pay them and I am not going to describe the value of the lost information here. My question is (I am not very tech savvy), a friend told me that he is able to create a fake BitCoin transaction to show these guys as payment that expires in 48 hours. I am wondering if I can give them a taste of their own medicine. I do not mind if they figure out if I am playing them and delete my decryption key permanently as I have already moved on but it does not hurt to try all the options I have. Is there any way for these guys to figure out if the transaction is fake? PS - I know a lot of these guys do not send me the decryption etc, or maybe they do but everyone tells me not to pay them and technically I am not paying the so I figured what the hell. Let me know what you guys think. Thank you so much.
