Collectables auction website hacked overnight

THE website for a collectables auction held this weekend at Mount Larcom has been hacked.

The militaria, antiques and collectable auction auctioneer David Smith said they had several phone calls from people last night who told them there was something not right with their site.

"I'm not very computer literate, but I know it's not good," he said.

"We're working on it as we speak so hopefully it doesn't take too long."

This weekend's auction includes estate jewellery, antique military like black powder guns and pistols and one off collectables.

Mr Smith travels around Australia hosting auctions, and held an auction at Mount Larcom last year.

"Last year's was pretty successful and because of that we've been able to get more collectables from two Estates for this year's event," he said.

The auction will be held over Saturday and Sunday of this weekend.
Viewing on Saturday is at 8am and the auction will start at 10am and on Sunday viewing is at 9am for an 11am start.
