To gain access to Burks’ social media accounts and her business page, hackers gained control of a friend’s account and then sent a message from that account to Burks asking her to send a code from her email. Believing that this was her friend making the request, Burks replied. The hackers then used that code to change all of Burks’ passwords to gain control of and locking Burks out of her accounts.
