This episode is one you will remember for a long time.


Imagine your best client being hacked and completely locked out of their Facebook account.


It’s exactly what happened to Irena on a Saturday in September and the one weekend she decided to keep her phone in her office so she could enjoy time with her family.


Odd coincidences nudged Irena’s intuition and led to discovering someone had hacked her personal Facebook profile, and Irena was locked out of her account.


Irena lost access to everything, including Messenger leaving her with very few avenues to get help FAST.


Irena shares her story of being hacked despite having all the security measures like two-factor authentication in place, and what saved her from having $50k stolen through malicious hacking of her personal profile and ad account.
