Canada Energy Partners Phishing Attack on Bank Account
VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 7, 2021 /CNW/ - Canada Energy Partners Inc. (NEX: CE.H) (the "Company") wishes to inform the public that it has been the victim of a phishing financial fraud perpetrated by professional hackers in a very sophisticated scheme. The crime resulted in the loss of $220,000.00 US from the Company's bank accounts. The commercial bank is conducting forensic accounting audit and trying to recover at least a portion of the funds but due to the sophisticated nature of the hack, these efforts may not bear any favorable results. Police have been notified and are investigating as well.
Grant Hall, Canada Energy's President commented, "Unfortunately we all see and read about this type of technology hacking almost every day. We were confident that our protocols protected us, but it seems that where there is a will there is a way prevailed in this case and the thieves were able to steal at least a portion of the Company's funds. We have taken steps to vigorously tighten our financial and banking protocols even further. We have opened new bank accounts with one Canada's largest financial institutions that offers an even a greater level of financial security than we have in place at present."
Canada Energy is involved in ongoing detailed negotiations with the Government of Gabon regarding an oil project located in that country and those negotiations and due diligence works are continuing with no pause.
Concerned shareholders are encouraged to contact Grant Hall, Canada Energy's president by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 1 520 668 4101
