CannaOne Technologies Inc. - Solomon Riby-Williams

The BCSC issued a HIGHLY non-standard alert for CannaOne Technologies Inc (CNNA.c). Solomon Riby-Williams is the 'CEO / Co-Founder'. His bio states he ... "has an expert understanding of Front-End and Back-End Development."

"The BCSC has recently learned that several vulnerable seniors in B.C. have been targeted by someone using high-pressure sales tactics, including daily phone calls, to encourage them to buy shares in CannaOne Technologies Inc. "

Was Mr. Solomon Riby-Williams impressed with the unusual regulator spanking? Not, because this lame arse promo issued a dopey 'fluff' NR the next day.

'The Company has developed technology that leverages big data to deliver predictive analytics and actionable insight to the emerging cannabis industry.'

It appears to me this enterprise sells websites, poorly, because it's never sold any. Around May 21st, there was a large escrow/pool release. That would be scads of $ .02 shares needing new owners. Total enterprise cap right this instant is something past $30m.

It will take many more vulnerable seniors to keep it there.

"The Most Destructive Breach In History": Hackers using NSA code

It's called EternalBlue and has been used by hackers in North Korea, Russia and China to "cut a path of destruction around the world."
Now it's come home to roost, wreaking havoc just miles from Washington in Baltimore.
Experts say that attacks using EternalBlue have soared and cyber-criminals are honing in on vulnerable towns and cities, using it to paralyze governments. The NSA's connection to the attacks had previously not been reported and the NSA hasn’t commented. In April 2017, Edward Snowden said that the "NSA just lost control of its Top Secret arsenal of digital weapons; hackers leaked it."

Since the April 2017 leak, the software has been used to paralyze places like hospitals, airports, rail and shipping operators, ATMs and factories. In the US and Canada, hackers are using the software to hit local governments.

The Dunbar Armored robbery

The Dunbar Armored robbery is the largest cash robbery in the US. It occurred in 1997 at the Dunbar Armored facility at 550 S Hill Street, Los Angeles. The thieves made off with $18.9m.
The robbery was masterminded by Allen Pace, who worked for Dunbar as a regional safety inspector. Pace photographed the company's Los Angeles armored car depot. He recruited five friends, and on the night of September 13, 1997, Pace used his keys to enter the facility. Once inside, they ambushed the guards one by one. In half an hour, the robbers had loaded millions of dollars into a waiting U-Haul.

They almost got away with it — except for a broken tail light and a critical mistake ... a robber didn't remove the straps from around the loot.
But the clue was of little value until Eugene Lamar Hill Jr. was identified as a suspect 2 years later. Hill had rented a 14-foot U-Haul truck a day before the heist and had returned it a day later. When arrested, Hill had a stack of bills bearing the same money wrappers as those taken in the Dunbar robbery. Hill confessed and led authorities to the others.
Hill fingered his accomplices and all were convicted. Allen Pace was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison. Cops believe that Pace and his fellow bandits spent several million dollars on homes, cars and gambling sprees before their arrests. They say as much as $10m is still hidden somewhere.

Thunder Bay - 'Time to get the Hells Angels back on the streets'

The club is in 'limbo' in Thunder Bay In 2016 and 2017, Thunder Bay had more murders per capita than any other metro area in Canada at 5.8 per 100,000. Following Thunder Bay is Abbotsford and Edmonton.

A violent crime wave has hit the Northwestern Ontario city with a tide of assaults, holdups and murders.
Its arriving with gangs from Toronto and Ottawa, looking to cash in with opioids to the indigenous.
Even after a recent seizure of 13 firearms, more than a kilogram of fentanyl and about $750k in cash – the top cop admitted feeling overmatched by the level of violence.

By 2017 Ottawa gangs had given way to Toronto groups like the Galloway Boys and the Ardwick Bloods. Cops say there could be as many as a dozen gangs operating in the city at any one time. While the Hells Angels recently returned to Thunder Bay cops say it doesn't appear that the southern gangs are working with the bikers. "The Thunder Bay Hells Angels kind of came back in as an official chapter, but due to the death to one of their members they are kind of in a limbo state." Southern gangs bring cocaine in bulk to Thunder Bay which can net between $300k and $500k a kilogram once the product is cut and distributed on the streets.
