Our advice as always when dealing with Cyber-Crime

  • Never email the fraudster back
  • Never consider paying the ‘bad bounty’
  • Immediately change all passwords for your online accounts
  • Turn on 2-Step Authentication of all accounts where possible
  • Never use the same password across multiple sites
  • Turning off your webcam when not in use

You can check if your account has been compromised in a known data breach by visiting https://haveibeenpwned.com/
