A little advice for hackers on our trail

Online business in this age is a serious business in that (no matter how little a business strength might be) it will have its own followership and conversion rate.

However, something of pain {that is like a boil on the buttocks} for online business owners, is the activities of hackers. Internet or computer hackers are the nuisance of the online world who seek to steal individuals/businesses identities and other vital information in order to either defraud the public or disrupt the online business activities of the victims.

There are people who have had their information stolen {online}, who then resorted to warning people on their contact lists. The warning usually reads, ‘this is to inform everyone on my list that any messages you receive asking for money or any nude posts you see on my wall is not from me. I have just discovered that my account has been hacked’.

Few examples of internet hackers’ activities

As far as Australia, it has been reported that hackers were trying to infiltrate into a public service for reasons yet unclear.

According to report, SCAMwatch and Telstra are warning consumers to hang up the phone if they received a call out of the blue from someone claiming there is a problem with their internet connection or computer.

It reads further, “If you provide your credit card details and give remote access to your computer, the scammer may not only take more than the stated ‘fee’, but also infect your computer to gain access to your personal information and commit other acts of fraud”.[1]

It should be recalled that in 2014, the National Assembly of Nigeria moved against cybercrime when the Senate passed the Cybercrime Bill.

What is our offence?

We are aware that there are a number of competitors (in our industry) but which offence have we committed in our organisation to be subjected to hacking?

For hackers information, we are not gullible in our organisation: we are not expecting to collect money deposited in the bank by any demised family relations that we are not associated with; we are not running after funding that are not transacted through financial institutions (especially our banker); and we are not expecting to close deals that are not legal.

That being said, we want to appeal to every person that has been trying to hack into our system in OLEM EDGE GLOBAL CONCEPT to, please, desist from it. We are an organisation that promotes ‘social responsibility’ and the ‘concern to reduce social vices through tutoring’.

Instead of trying to bring us down (via the internet) why not use the internet to support our cause? If you could not fund our social responsibility programmes, then, use the internet to publicise our programmes.
