Hi there folks, I have an update on the ransom thing . . .
It’s been 4 months now since the episode of the FB hijack & subsequent ransom attempt. I’m only just coming to terms with the scale of the damage that this mindless excuse for a human has caused me and my business.
My biggest concern is that my confidence has been severely dented [shattered?]. I had thought that I was making some headway into the “black art” of affiliate marketing – but not so sure now.
I’m trying hard to put a positive spin on the whole sorry story and the only tiny scrap of “good news” I can report is that I didn’t pay him/her anything. I’m quite sure that even if I had paid up, I would not have got the account back anyway, so I saved a few squid there.
Also, no guarantee that the integrity of the site would be intact when I got it back anyway!
I’m just going to start again from scratch with all aspects and hope Pondlife has not caused irreparable damage to my reputation – I’m painfully aware that my lists had been targetted, purporting to be me.
That’s it for now. I’ll tryto post updates as things progress with the new site(s) and FB group(s).
Thanks for reading and I wish all of you the very best of the Season’s Greetings and a much better 2023 on every level.
NEWSFLASH: First snowfall of the year here in deepest, darkest Dorset. It’s been quite a while since we have seen the White Stuff in this neck of the woods.
