Hacker demands USD 300 after taking over her account
Maureen Nantume has joined the growing number of celebrities whose Instagram accounts have been targeted by money hungry hackers who hold the accounts for ransom.
The hacker, who left a number to call in case the owner wanted to retrieve her account, demanded over USD300 to give her the rights of ownership again.
Maureen made it a point to warn her followers of the development and is considering opening a new account instead of paying up which will entice them to come back for more.
Luckily for her, her business is not primarily online which thankfully doesn’t affect her as much compared to social media influmcers like Zari who has had her accounts targeted several times.
