Scam Doing the Rounds - Your Mailbox is Almost Full

Scam Doing the Rounds – Your Mailbox is Almost Full

The Latest Scam Doing the Rounds

Scam mail varies: “A proposal for a lucrative business”, “Your bank account needs to have its login details updated”, “Your bank account online statement is ready”, “A payment is due to you…” and other. Scammers are relentless in their efforts to trick you in giving them the opportunity to leave malicious code in your device (have you got good anti-malware software to prevent this – refer below)..

A scam that hadn’t been used in a while and is once again doing the rounds is: “Your MailBox is Almost Full”.

If you have a WordPress Website make sure you have these

If you have a WordPress Website Make sure you have These

You created a website and over the years you have added products, services, articles, plugins and all the rest that goes with keeping a website up and running. You have worked hard and the last thing you want is when you try to access your website… it is simply… “gone”!

It doesn’t exist anymore. You hosting company had “guaranteed” that they would backup your website regularly but when you phone your hosting company they now say that unfortunately they cannot restore your website…

Bad… very bad!

There are various reasons why your website “is no longer there”. It could have been hacked; there could have been a conflict between plugins or the hosting company went out of business… (as improbable as it may seem).

If you have a WordPress website it is ESSENTIAL that you have the following:

  1. a good hosting company
  2. a good ‘Backup and Restore’ plugin
  3. a good ‘security’ plugin and
  4. a ‘https’ certificate

There are various security plugins, Wordfence security being one of the very best. The Wordfence security plugin has a free version and a paid version. The free version is, in most cases, all you need for good website security.

The two most important plugins for any website are: a good backup and restore plugin as well as a good security plugin. Don’t try and expand your website until you have them installed and setup.
