Having your personal or business computer hacked into can be a traumatic experience as Dr. Jonathan Leakey from Ballymena, who is a Lecturer at the Ulster University in Coleraine and has a PhD in Computing found out, after being the victim of a scam that ended up with him losing £25,000 of his savings.
He did eventually get the money back…..after nine months of fighting.
He has now written a book called “Scam Survivor – How One Victim Fought Back” to help people in similar circumstances recover their money. www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1838128905
In the book he describes how in under 5 minutes and one single transfer, he lost thousands of pounds. He then goes on to describe how he and his wife picked themselves up and started the process of getting the money back in their bank account.
This type of scam is bad enough when it happens to your personally. It can be much worse when it’s a business that is attacked.
60% of all small businesses that get scammed, collapse and go out of business within 6 months.
If you’re a business owner and you have no one looking after your IT equipment and keeping them up to date, then you are currently the number one target for scammers and hackers.
