Mohawk Nation News: Caught In His Own Web


By Mohawk Nation News

MNN. Jan. 15, 2012. In December the owner of MNN hired a webmaster to update the MNN website: Erland Campbell of Native Web Markets, 6275 Place Northcrest, Montreal, Quebec, H3S 2N3, 514-400-3112.

He received $1,500 in advance to make minor changes. The original remained online. The site he produced is a mere shell of the original. Before launching it, Campbell demanded $500 in cash immediately. He refused to complete the job.

Campbell then sent threatening emails [copies have been kept] trying to extort money, which caused me anxiety and fear.

Then the original site online disappeared.

The host in Norway said that the ‘owner’ [not me] had changed the original MNN password and requested that the site be suspended. I convinced the server to reinstall a new password.

The RCMP Anti-Fraud Centre advised me to go to the local police, make a report and insist on a follow up with the web master. Since he was paid and kept the product, it could constitute theft.

The host in Norway worked very hard to restore the old website which reappeared on the morning of January 17, 2012.

As Chief Seattle said: “Man did not weave the web of life. He is but a mere strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
