Sports betting firm, Bet9ja, warns over criminal cyber attack
Sports betting firm, Bet9ja, has warned perpetrators of a criminal cyber-attack on its operations to desist from such acts, just as it has advised its clients to be a little patient with it.
The firm said in Lagos, yesterday, that its “betting platform, just like so many market-leading global organisations, has recently become a victim of a sophisticated criminal cyber-attack, which is restricting our customers from having access to the platform.”
It revealed that it is working tirelessly with its IT team, independent forensics and cybercrime experts to resolve the issue, adding, “We take this matter extremely seriously. Our priority is protecting our customers and you have our assurances that your accounts will not be compromised and all your funds are safe.
“We apologise for this situation and once back online, we will reward our loyal customers with a truly sensational bonanza of promotions.”
It warned its clients to disregard “any information not shared by Bet9ja,” adding, “we will be back stronger, continuing to provide you with the best-in-class betting experience, as soon as is technically possible.”
