Well, hello there! Things have been seemingly quiet on Just Nice Things for the past week or so. Posts have been drafted, products are waiting to be photographed but my blogging duties have been overshadowed by a couple of unexpected and unwanted hiccups.
One was discovering my credit card had been compromised. Fortunately I spotted the fraudulent transaction on my regular balance checks (something I’ve got into the habit of). Some bastard had used my card details to buy £500 worth of merchandise from John Lewis online. I always have my card on me so I can only assume a card reader in a shop I had used copied my details. Then again I don’t know how sophisticated these thieves’ equipment and software are.
Luckily the bank blocked the pending transaction and to an even bigger relief for me, I wasn’t debited (probably because the transaction was in the pending stage.)
Then yesterday I discovered Just Nice Things had been hacked into on 15th August. The hosting company I use (TSO Host) worked relentlessly to remove the suspected virus and coding and (fingers crossed), I think it’s gone. I’ve been with TSO Host for years and they are fantastic – 24/7 service and they are always quick to respond so if you are looking for a UK based hosting company, you really can’t go wrong with TSO Host.
So that’s my turbulent news and a reminder to you all to be vigilant and check your bank/credit card regularly. It takes a few seconds and the apps work so efficiently.
With website hacking, some of us are just unlucky. I have since downloaded a plug-in to check who logs onto the control panel (that’s me only).
OK folks, normal service will resume shortly. Thanks for your time.
Hello again! I’m sorry for the silence on this blog but last week I was ill with a cold. Great! Any way, I’ve recovered and will be back in full swing with some new beauty posts.
I figured a separate blog on food was a better idea than mixing it up on Just Nice Things. Besides I can’t imagine there are that many foodie fans who will want to read about me singing the praises of the latest body moisturiser.
It’s for fun so if it’s up your street, please visit it and let me know your thoughts. If you like it a lot, then you can follow it on Bloglovin’ so you’ll never miss a fresh update. Thank you!
