I had someone calling themself Matthew Depriest with an email from a nonexistent site contact me yesterday about a “document.” Their email was matt1@transmattnow.co. No site with that name exists. They claimed to find me on through the ATA. They had terrible grammar and offered zero details about their “document.” I asked for more details and the name of their business and have not heard back.

Don't waste your time Sep 23

Do not provide personal or banking details to this individual. This follows the pattern of so many scams reported here.
Always good to check before replying to "offers" like this!

If you own a domain name [like transmattnow.co], you could also create a website for that domain name, but you can also use it just for sending and receiving emails with email addresses anyname@transmattnow.co.

Notwithstanding this technical clarification, it still looks like some kind of scam.
