A hacker can

Updated on August 1, 2011

7/14/2011

Making extra money online is very challenging,

It takes many hours of thinking & working to come up with new ideas to work on and write about.

I think it is neccesary to get refferals and work with others to really be successfull, but it also is very dangerous, when doing it online.

If there is one thing that I have learned is that a hacker can ruin months worth of work in a minute.

A hacker can.

  • Stop your online business
  • Crush your dreams
  • Cut you off from the internet
  • Make you lose thousands of contacts from your email accounts.
  • Make you worry about your future.
  • Steal what it has taken you months to make.
  • Make you really depressed.
  • Make you feel like a failure.
  • Basically ruin your life.

Yes, I was recently hacked from a person who sent me a message from facebook.

She said she was interested in writing articles online.

I sent her 3 emails which is how I was hacked.

If you are reading this please go to your email account and add

eroads at yahoo dot com to your block list.

That small email address will cause you alot of grief.

Anyway I always try not to worry about things but when a hacker takes over you computer and all the sites you use everyday,trying to make much needed money.

IT HURTS

As always

Thanks for stopping by

    Manthy,

    I wanted to ask you: Did your hacker manage to hack the account through Facebook?

    Unfortunately, the problems I described are really common, especially for women on-line. Bloggers and people in tech professions seem to have a lot of problems. But, I got my stalker from a static site (as opposed to a blog, a forum a chatroom or a site like Facebook where you interact with other people, which are far more commons sources.)

    I, also, started getting a bunch of weird phone calls all at once a few months ago. I have Magic Jack, so I just went and got another device. Only a couple of people have the number, now.

    I've been experiencing a rash of hacking, stalking and fraud lately. So, I know exactly what you mean.

    I got a stalker who posed as a freelance web design client. The guy was from another state and actually came to try to find me. He seemed to get frustrated when he couldn't figure out exactly where I live. But, you never know about a stalker - they're unpredictable.

    I lost tons of work. I spent weeks pulling down info., then finally whole sites in a panic. I've decided not to freelance anymore because of it. I'm strictly writing now. My whole life has been almost completely destroyed by criminals, it seems.

    Plus, I have another local stalker (former co-worker)and an ex to worry about. I've had problems with the phones and e-mail.

    What I've done to try to stop it is just kill all of my e-mail addresses that I had. I no longer make them public. Only a few people have them.

    Needless to say, I've been a nervous wreck lately. It can really wreak havoc on your life. Especially when the damage is financial or starts spilling over into the real world.

    Great article! Voting up!

    I got hacked one time on an online banking account! I was just always checking my balance, then outta nowhere around $250.00 came out thru some kind of check cashing thru internet deal. Ofcourse I had to shut everything down and start over. Needless to say I don't bank online now!!!!! No telling I could be hacked now too! It's frustrating! Good Luck

    This is just where I blew off some steam after I got hacked, I think you would know if you were hacked.

    I couldn't even get my CPU to turn on, but some of the programs are stealth, so you never know

    I may have been hacked, I really don't know. I have had a computer since 2004 and I still don't understand alot about it.

    It is very frustrating.
