Twitter: RexMundi_Anon Dear friends, foes and members of the media, Our name is Rex Mundi. As you might recall, we previously hacked into the servers of Belgian companies Elantis, AGO Interim, French company Credipret and North-American companies AmeriCash Advance and Drake International. We recently hacked into the Web server of Belgian lending institution, Buy Way, located at buyway.be We copied a table from the server’s database that contains the names, DOB, email addresses and phones numbers of 580 loan applicants, along with the amounts of requested loans and the intended purposes of those loans. We have offered Buy Way not to publish this data on this Internet, for a small fee of course. This fee is EUR 20,000 (Twenty thousand Euros). So far, we have unfortunately not heard back from the people over at Buy Way. They have until this Saturday morning to pay us. In case they do not do so, we will publish the data in our possession on the Internet, as we have done in the past. If you are a customer of Buy Way, we would strongly advise you to contact them (Phone number: 02250.2057) in order to voice your concerns. Rex Mundi
