Abi says to tell you her mom is calmed down now. I think we found the source of my problem with this foreign blog trying to take over.
I have been working with a representative from Mad Mimi (wonderful folks there) who send out my posts to you, and with a woman at Godaddy.com, where I have my domain (.com). I had much better luck with these women than the two men yesterday.
I’m not altogether sure how this worked. But somehow the problem was lurking in my DNS (domain) files. It was figured out by the nice woman at Mad Mimi, who has a very keen and observant eye. (Thank you, Celeste!)
And then I knew what to tell the folks at Godaddy.com, where my domain (.com) is, to do.
Either someone hacked into my DNS files and altered them. Or they figured some way to piggy bank over me to get my traffic. But the problem was in the DNS files.
I don’t begin to understand how they figure this stuff out. But there are simply bad people out there that want to take what you have. So be ever vigilant. Keep an eye on your property.
There is no way to stop the hackers. There just isn’t. But you can follow them and try to clean up their mess. And that’s what I’ve done twice now, with the help of others.
If you get anything else from them, please let me know. It has been a tough few days! Abi is very glad I’ve calmed down, because they sense what’s going on with me and display anxiety as well.
While I was sitting here working on this, the phone rang next to me, and I was left a message saying I owed money to the IRS.
DO NOT ANSWER THESE CALLS. It is a scam.
My accountant told me, and I also read this, that the IRS will not contact you by phone. They will send you something in the mail if necessary.
So there are bad people out there trying to part you from your money claiming to be with the IRS. Do not interact with them.
I will be redownloading my template around noon today, to look over things. So if you visit here and things look odd, that’s what is going on. Won’t take long!
Thanks for hanging in there! Back to regular programming tomorrow. I’m exhausted!
