Banner day for scamming.

Two scams that are in the news hit our household today.

The first was a sextortion email. This one was a copycat though, since it had an an email address that was obviously found through a hack (vendorname@wellgolly.com), but they didn’t have the password to prove that they’d been monitoring the webcam.

And then I got to talk to a “Microsoft Security Team” member that was informing me that the internet on my computer was illegal. I tried to get him to clarify what he meant by expressing confusion about how the internet was on my computer, since as far as I know, it is outside my house, but I wasn’t able to string him along. And just for a point of reference, we only use Macs, iPads, and iPhones here, so there was no way that they detected “Illegal internet activity on my Windows”.
