Long story cut short, I had engaged a professional from UK last week to revamp my blog design. As a common practice in the market, I had also given my blog access to her and made her Admin to work on my blog template.
Little did I expect that she would remove me as Admin, & took over my blog completely instead and blackmailed me. Reports have been made to the relevant authorities. Thank goodness I was able to get my 10-year-old baby back after working round the clock for 2 days, and now Luxury Haven is up and running again! Did you notice that I have changed my blog header image to a simpler design?
It is truly a dreadful experience that I wish no other bloggers will have to go through. Besides reporting the case, hunting for solutions and trying to getting help, I also had to inform my advertisers and sponsors for my pending products review. It was a total nightmare!
I consider myself a rather careful person, using 2FAs ( two-factor authentication ) for security and even changing from Http:// to Https:// for a more secure site. Despite these measures, my blog was hacked last year.
For now, I will be taking a hiatus from blogging but will still stay active in Facebook and Instagram before deciding what to do next. Fortunately, I am blessed with many generous and understanding sponsors, as well as extremely supportive followers who have with me since the start of my blogger career 10 years ago.
