Earlier in January this year I mentioned that I had been a victim of hacking when I had several accounts compromised and also had one of my AOL email accounts hijacked, not to mention the commissions they stole from some of the affiliate programs that I promote.
Well, recently I have been bothered with this thing again. I will not go into further details here, but it seems that there is someone with bad intentions out there targeting Internet Marketers trying to mess up with our business and steal affiliate commissions. Last week they tried to steal my commissions from one of the companies which I am affiliate of and tried to screw up with my inbox forwarding me tons of safelists emails. It took me a while to clean that mess and set up my server to block those messages but it’s all Ok now.
I have already reported this to the authorities and also notified the companies and service providers where I had my accounts compromised about all of this.
Whoever is committing these acts they seem to use some ‘dirty’ tactics to try to hide their identity and they use other peoples information when hacking into someone else’s accounts. I had some of my profiles filled with someone else’s information when I took control of my accounts again. They also use several different PayPal emails to divert money to their PayPal accounts.
It’s just sad that some people instead of going after their own success and happiness in life prefer to damage other people’s success. I just can’t understand that mentality and I fell sorry for them.
I like to make things clear and I thought I should share with you what is happening and what I’ve been doing towards it.
Have a great day,
P.S. If you have been a victim of something similar what I recommend you to do right away is change you email account password for something unique and don’t use that password with anything else.
