I went to a computer auction held by faranani auctioneers
(http://www.farananiauctioneers.co.za) and mistakingly supplied them
with my details. I was plagued by them for a few years via cellphone
In the beginning of this year their web site got hacked and the hacker
thought it good to send all us "subscribers" a bunch of emails:
snOoPy 0wnZ H3rE
huh im here admin, where are you ?
I phoned them and asked to speak to the manager. I told him that that
their server was hacked and that I would be able to fix the hole for
them. "No", said the manager, "we already have people working on it." I
thought yeah right, the same people who allowed for this to happen in
the first place. Less than a week later snOoPy was back again sending
email from their site. It took me 3 emails before they eventually
dropped my info; the last one with a cc to my lawyer telling them that I
was going to take legal action if they did not remove every single bit
of information they had of me from their computers.
