Stay Safe – Email Invoices

3 Nov

Rocoja Limited has just had the email below sent through –

Email Virus

It is appearing as an invoice from TM Group Billing with a subject of  “A new invoice has been created”.

Attached to the email, is what looks at first glance to be a Document (word doc).

This is another email scam, aiming for a click on the document as the originators of these viruses are being a little more clever now, by using what look like business email addresses and associated subjects that may entice a user to read the email and open the attachment.

A shift has recently happened, which has seen a high proportion of these scam emails, being targeted at small businesses, with the hope of getting a better response.

Practically all of these also have a password stealing component, with the aim of stealing bank, PayPal or other financial details along with your email logins.
Many of them are also designed to steal the Facebook and other social network log in details of small businesses, along with Website log ins & FTP files  (if you manage your own site).

The companies & employees who are mentioned in the emails are normally completely  innocent and have been picked at random.

Never get involved in any way, even if your “good” heart tells you to let the company involved know what’s happened; the best advice is – dont.

With regards to the aforementioned  TM Group “new invoice” email; on hovering over the attachment, it appears to be a genuine word doc attached, however it is most definitely corrupted and contains a horrible virus.

Overall – all I can say is – Be very careful with email attachments.

The basic rule is NEVER open any attachment to an email, unless you are expecting it.

Also – as great as Virus protection programs are; don’t just rely on the “Real-Time” scanning available with many of them – If you absolutely have to check the attachment – do this..

Save the document to a safe location on your computer, normally your downloads folder or your documents folder and THEN scan it with your antivirus.

Many antivirus’s do not automatically detect macro-viruses in real-time protection and you need to enable document or office protection in the settings.

Also be aware that there are a lot of dodgy word docs spreading that WILL infect you with no action from you if you are still using an outdated version of word. This is a good reason to update your office programs to a recent version and stop using office 2003 and 2007.

Many small business owners use older versions of office programs, because  they are convenient, have the functions and settings we are used to and may have never seen a need to update to the latest super-duper version.

BUT the risks in using older version are now seriously starting to outweigh the convenience, benefits and cost of keeping an old version going.

I strongly urge you to update your office suite to the latest version and stop putting yourself at risk!

A brief history of the Internet & Social Media

2 Aug

And why it applies to your “Brand”.

For the purposes of this blog the term “Brand” applies to your Small Business, Event, Personality, Celebrity, Goal etc etc – Whatever you are using Social Media to tell the outside world.

Internet Use

The term #Socialmedia refers to Internet sites where people interact with each other &/or business’s, celebs & products etc; where they can share & discuss information & idea’s. Recently this has become far more involved with multimedia playing a huge role & the most engaging posts are now a mix of personal words, pictures, videos and audio.

In the late 1960’s a crude form of internet was created, which led to the first email being sent in 1971.

In the late 1970’s a couple of friends created an online bulletin board, which was used to share information between them. This was the first ever Online Community.

This was quickly followed by a number of Universities in the USA, using online boards to share information amongst students.

In the 80’s things began to move very quickly & Dial-up access was pioneered by a number of American companies, allowing just over 1 million people to “get on-line” for the first time ever.

The biggest of these was AOL (America On Line) which first opened in 1985.

During the last year of the 80’s a British engineer named Tim Berners-Lee began work at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Switzerland), this work was to become the foundations of the World Wide Web.

In 1993, CERN donated the WWW to the world – Servers started to appear all over the western world & Browsers such as Mosaic were born.

1994 saw the birth of BHI’s Geocites – where users could create their own webpages. This became a community of over 138 Million sites before its eventual closure in 2009 (USA). Yahoo opened in this year & to this day still owns Geocites (which are still hosting websites, but only in Japan.

In 1995 – Headlines were abounding such as “Internet Blah Blah – Hype Alert” – as many didn’t understand the impact this was going to have on the future.

Blogging & Users own profiles began appearing in 1997 – AOL now had an Instant messenger function & the internet was starting to flourish with rich, diverse information.

Google opened in 1999

Leading up to 2000 there had been a flush of “Domain pirates” – People who bought the domain names up as soon as they were available & then sold them to whoever really needed them for vastly inflated sums. There were also a number of hastily created internet companies & in unfortunately for many, in 2000 the DOT.COM bubble burst.

However in the early 2000’s – along came Apple & Wikipedia & the internet rapidly recovered itself & with over 50 million people on line (34 via AOL) – there was a boom in information & products & services available.

2003 saw the opening of the Social networking site aimed at professionals – LinkedIn.
A music oriented download portal – ITunes & a Social networking site – MySpace

2004 Saw Facebook launch, along with Flickr & Digg

2005 – Along came Bebo & YouTube – There were now over Billion Web Pages.

In 2006 Twitter was launched. – During this time, Google was receiving more than 400 million search requests daily.

2007 Saw Facebook become partly owned by Microsoft & they began to accept advertising, They also allowed 3rd party developers to install apps on their pages. This year also saw the launch of the first iPhone by Apple.

In 2009 it was estimated that the internet had over 59 Billion webpages, but had become impossible to keep count.

Facebook grew to over 400 Million users in 2010 – With the internet now being the prefered way for people get their News… (both social & world). Apple also released the first iPad Tablet.

2011 saw Social media communication surge with Facebook having 550 Million users & Twitter having 70 around 70 Million tweets sent daily.

In 2012 it was estimated that at least 2 BILLION people use Social Media With access being available via smartphones and tablets, as well as TV’s & Computers. New sites are emerging constantly, to keep up with the demand for information. The top ten social networks of this year are Facebook, Pinterest, Blogger, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, WordPress, LinkedIn, MySpace & Wiki.

2013 saw the following statistics emerge.
YouTube Users = 1 Billion
Facebook Users = 1.11 Billion
Twitter Users = 500 Million
Flickr Users = 87 Million Users
LinkedIn = 225 Million Users
Google+ = 343 Million Users
DropBox = 100 Million Users
Blogs (across platforms) = 156 Million
Reddit = 69.9 Million Users

There were live tweets sent from on board the International Space Station this year also.

This year – 2014 ????

It is estimated 85% of the entire population of the world is now connected through access too, or use of the above!
It is estimated at least 25% of the world’s population use Social Media as the first port of call to get information daily.

Facebook has been active for 10 years now – There are many camps who say it has had its day… The audience has moved on & people are looking for quick “soundbite” sized information, Hence the emergence of image / video based social media such as Vine & Instagram & Snapchat.

So the message is – YOUR Business / Event / Character / Persona / etc etc  NEEDS to be on Social media.

The Audience are like sponges, soaking up information about you. (Or your competition if you are not on there)!

Contact info@Rocoja.co.uk for information on how you can  have a presence for as little as £1.80  Per Day.

Wedding Photography

15 Aug

It certainly seems that it’s the time of year that romance abounds. I’ve had notification after notification of weddings, engagements & events on my Facebook & twitter pages.

However far from being a stress free endeavour, I’ve heard from many a bride-to-be that it is absolutely essential to get the wedding photography right or no matter how perfect everything else is, the memories wont last!

jk LogoWith that in mind, I have been recommended to look at the work of a photographer called Jay Kowalik.  Jay Kowalik is a London-based independent photographer who specialises in wedding & portrait photography. 

Jay has produced stunning work, which has been her passion since studying photography at Kensington & Chelsea college. Jay approaches every event with a caring & warmth to ensure the special moments she captures are a reflection of the intimate moments she witnesses.

Jays packages are transparent & simple to understand & this I have been told is quite rare in the business of Wedding photography.  She is always happy to explain this further & is happy to structure each package individually, as of course every couple will have unique requirements.

She also has a number of options for how you save your special day; such as Fine-art PhotosPhoto albums in beautiful wooden presentation boxes & Personalised DVD;s (Perfect for sharing with friends via social networks). Jay also offers an on-line gallery for brides to share their precious memories with friends and family via their network.

For important purchases I have always gone by reviews & testimonials, I would suggest having a look at the Jay Kowalik Kind Words page, which is a really nice touch.

So if you are looking for a photographer, look no further.

As with any recommendation I make – Please please let me know if you make use of this.

Thank you

Evie Mae Charity Football Match

Wow the last 2 weeks have gone so quickly.

Lets be honest though, its been an extremely fast paced (juggled around my numerous other responsibilities/jobs) 2 weeks & I have loved it.

I have been humbled by people’s well wishes & offers of support & help, especially those who are struggling themselves in difficult stand out from the crowdtimes; but also by the Celebrities who have jumped on board with such short notice & have offered to help are in my eyes – simply wonderful people who stand out from the crowd…

We have no budget & Sharon & I are not professional events organisers at all so this could’ve been a nightmare, but it hasn’t!

We have friends & family who are rallying round – as soon as they hear about this lovely little girl many people jump at the chance to help.

I want to say thanks again to those who are playing…
