Swipe Right: Matching Clients And Coaches

If you are a millennial, the language of “swiping” is simple. Swipe right to show interest — and swipe left to move on. Take a look at Tinder, the online dating app: Tinder users view an online profile of a potential match, swiping right on the screen if they like the profile they see. A match occurs when two users swipe right on each other’s profiles. Launched in 2012, Tinder has made more than 8 billion matches. Read More….

Hackers intercept NZ taxidermy company’s invoices, trick clients

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A  South Canterbury business has been hit by hackers who intercepted its invoices and prompted clients to deposit money into foreign bank accounts. Kerry O’Rourke, a part-owner in  Pleasant Point’s O’Rourke Brothers Taxidermy, said far only one of O’Rourke’s clients has been sucked into the scam, losing “probably about €2000 ($3583) into an account”. “We first realised something was amiss with our emails when we got rung up by an English client who we were sending some mounts to. He had paid his money into an English Building Society account supposedly that we’d sent him, which we hadn’t sent him. “It probably wouldn’t be legal to do what I want to do to them. It’s a thing you can’t do anything about until its happened.” O’Rourke said his reaction was to immediately alert the rest of his overseas clients. “We got in contact with all our other foreign clients who we had invoices out to by email. Some of them have been approached (by the hackers). Our emails have been intercepted and reconstructed giving them Russian bank accounts. “So it’s a network that’s fairly global thievery,” O’Rourke said. O’Rourke said he was still to hear from some offshore clients who have […]

Protect Yourself Against Credit Card Fraud by Clients and Customers

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A lot has been written about credit card fraud by fraudsters around the world who get your credit card information and put bogus charges on it. Or they lure you into signing up for what appears to be a good deal or free trial of a product, subscription, or service, but then you are charged for something you don’t get or for a free trial that turns out not to be free. But the credit card scam that has not received much attention is the one where clients and customers obtain products and services by charging a card and later claiming fraud to get their money back. This is particularly a problem for merchants, service providers, professionals, and freelancers who get their clients online. I started thinking about this problem after two experiences with credit card fraudsters. Since the early days of Internet commerce, I have run two mostly-online businesses, where I haven’t met most clients. Typically they pay by a credit card, debit card, PayPal or occasionally mail a check. The model has worked well for an Internet-based business since 2000, where I write and ghostwrite for clients all over the world and also help clients find publishers, agents, […]

5 Common Mistakes That Put Your SMB Clients At Risk for A Hack

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Hackers, it turns out, target SMBs with as much frequency as large businesses. SMBs are at the same level for risk of security and credit card breaches as large corporations, according to the New York Times. In addition, the National Small Business Association’s 2014 Year-End Economic Report reveals half of 675 small businesses reported being victims of attacks in 2014, an increase of 44 percent from 2013. Of those companies, 68 percent reported having been hacked at least twice. “What SMBs need to understand is that every business is a worthwhile and valuable target,” says Kevin Watson, CEO of Netsurion. “What this also illustrates is that cybercriminals are not using sophisticated or ‘new’ methods of attack, so SMBs have no excuse for not using a more comprehensive solution to bolster security and decrease their chances of becoming the next headline. Watson outlines five frequent mistakes that often lead to credit card breaches for SMBs, all of which IT solutions providers can correct: Not Protecting Inbound Internet Traffic. According to Watson, the first thing hackers look for is a way into the business being targeted. Every data circuit and Internet connection needs to be protected by a strong and adaptable firewall […]

Hired Hacker Who Named Clients Now Fears Retaliation

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

It’s not uncommon for a criminal defendant in a white-collar case to cooperate with prosecutors in hopes of receiving a lenient sentence. But it is less common for a defendant to then seek to keep that cooperation secret out of fear of retaliation from those he named. Yet that appears to have been the case with Eric Saldarriaga, a private investigator in New York who was sentenced on June 26 to serve up to three months in federal prison for hacking into dozens of personal email accounts. A year before he pleaded guilty, Mr. Saldarriaga tried, in vain, to cooperate with federal authorities in a bid to avoid prison time. In the end, prosecutors decided the information he provided was not enough to pursue charges against anyone else, according to court filings in the case that were unsealed on Tuesday. What seemed to trouble Mr. Saldarriaga the most in the weeks since his guilty plea was that the full extent of his efforts to help authorities might become public and prompt at least one of his former clients to possibly retaliate against him. “I now fear for the safety of my family,” Mr. Saldarriaga wrote in a previously redacted letter […]
