Trust No One

PC Magazine has a nifty little article about how they spotted a PayPal scam.

I’m sure you don’t need reminding, but if you get an e-mail from someone asking for your passwords and/or credit card number, don’t give it to them. Unless it’s me, of course.

    That people fall for this stuff only reinforces how stupid some people can be.

    I received this spam recently, addressed as usual to dozens of names pulled from the Earthlink directories (all the names were in alphabetical sequence around my earthlink account name), offering special services for a small fee.

    One idiot then replies to ALL and actually sends his SS# and Visa card number to the person.

    I didn’t reply to either email, as I started suspecting that it was a setup, until the second guy sent a follow-up email that didn’t include the spammer with a request to please, please, please, please, please delete the email he had sent out shortly before.

    Cyber-Darwinism strikes again.
