"Darius, I love your music and would like to invest in you. We have not spoken in a long time but I believe we can work together now. I want to send some cash your way...."
This was the message that changed everything. It came from someone I knew and it played on the most vulnerable side - my music. I became a willing participant in my demise. I gave up my Instagram credentials in hope of becoming an investor. I am no superhero and yes you will say;
"But boy, you should know better."
The truth is you are right.
"Don't worry thank God is just Instagram and not your bank account."
Many will say, "....you could always startup a new one...."
🚨My identity is a great asset its also a great tool for INFLUENCE.🚨
As small as my account was it was still a tool used to influence and encourage many of my friends and fans. These hackers have stolen it.
The future is not gloomy, the thing is hackers relish on the fact that many who have been hacked stay hidden ashamed of their mistake. How can we learn if mistakes and failure don't come. I am imperfectly, perfected. Failure, once acknowledged can lead to progress.
