email-hackers.jpgThis is to advice all YardFlex readers and subscribers that the email which is being circulated is the work of a malicious and vindictive hacker. Our email was invaded and used as the source to appeal for help to the supposedly stranded person in West Africa.

We apologise to those who have been trying to reach us via email as this invasion into our email system resulted in our mails being lost.

Again we want to reassure that at no time was our CEO in any difficulty and she is very much happy, free and definitely not the person being talked about in the email!

See below the fake email which is definitely NOT coming from Deborah Cole.

Hello,

I travelled to West Africa for a research about music generally in these two music developing countries , Ghana and Nigeria . But it as been a very sad news and bad moment for me, the present condition
that I found myself is very hard for me to explain. I am really stranded in Nigeria because I forgot my little bag in a Taxi where my money and passport documents were kept on my way to a Hotel that am
staying, I have no more money left with me.

I am now owning a hotel bill of $1800 and they wanted me to pay the bills soon else they will have to seize my bag and hand me over to the Hotel Management, please I need some help from you urgently to help me back home, and I need you to help me with the hotel bill and I will also need $1600 to feed and help myself back home so please can you help me with a sum of $3400? to sort out this problems here I need this help so much and on time because I am in a terrible and tight situation here, please understand how urgent I need your help.

I am sending you this e-mail from the city of Lagos. I will appreciate what so ever you can afford to send me for now and I promise to pay back your money as soon as I return home.
