Yes. We have our very own troll!

Fellow internet travelers:

Redbot Security’s very own troll has been super busy, posing as an upset customer, working late hours,  and launching a multipronged smear campaign attack (for almost a year now) against our company.  Queen Troll loves to attack us with frequent hate emails , along with sending us personal threats, and thrives on posting fake reviews on various platforms.    The troll has even attempted multiple spear phishing attacks and attempted hacks against our company, and has gone through all the trouble of creating many bogus forums and extremely toxic backlinks.

We believe that the positive experiences of our clients speak for themselves. Nevertheless, we are doing everything we can to stop this troll from continuing this smear campaign, and want to assure our past, current, and future clients that the disparaging statements published about us on the internet are completely false and will be dealt with accordingly.

We are handling the troll attacks.  Yes, trolls can be annoying and distracting, but ultimately everyone should stand up to a bully, even the cyber types.

For now, wish us happy troll hunting, the season is ripe!

Best-

The Redbot Security Team

Troll –  a cyber bully that hides in plain sight.

Trolls come in all shapes and sizes.  Many trolls just do their trolling/bullying to create problems, believing they have the power to change people’s opinions, discrediting honest, hard-working people and companies.

Disgruntled trolls are notorious for hiding behind fake profiles.  They never like to expose themselves because if they did, it would ruin their career or reputation. They lash out, believing that they are protected by fake user names and threats.

Trolls operate on deceit and try to hit you where it hurts, usually motivated by jealousy. They are essentially cowards who cannot face their issues head-on.

How do you feel about trolls?   leave us comments below.
