“Paying your outstanding warrants are so easy to forget; So therefore we have took it up on ourself to do an announcement,prevent yourself and loved ones from being arrested. Review documents below with the following names and addresses with outstanding warrants,” the email said.
The email has two virus-contaminated attachments so members of the public who got this email are forewarned not to open said files.
When contacted, DJ Sunshine appeared to be in good spirits, despite the breach of her online security.
“I figured that it was because that it is tax time why the hackers attached a warning from the TAJ. At first, I didn’t give it much thought, but since that time, I have taken ‘military action’, the details of which I won’t mention, and just moved on from there,” the Champion Boy producer said.
“But you all better remember to pay your taxes. A lot of people called me yesterday quite perturbed, maybe they had outstanding tickets but when I told them it was a hack, ‘oh God, were they relieved! But this is a reminder to you all to pay your outstanding tickets,” she added laughing.
