Well if maybe you thought that celebrities and people who have been in the limelight can’t be duped, you are probably wrong.
Legendary MC Edwin Katamba who also doubles as NBS after 5 presenter narrated how a hacker stole his social media pages after promising him a UN job.
Many social media users have fallen to these tricks when different accounts send them messages telling them how they have been chosen for a certain job or want to assist them.
“My social media accounts for ‘Kats Music Ug’ were hacked by an anonymous who uses a USA phone number. He trapped me with a message of a UN job and also uses the Google Authentic App, so when he puts you under it, then you’re gone.” Kat’s said.
However, funnily enough when the presenters had gone for a musical break in the Afta 5 program, the hacker reportedly handed back MC Kat’s YouTube channel.
