Evil People Amaze Me

Reading about the exploits and scams that some people come up with has always fascinated me.  Generally not because of their creativity – although some scams are indeed conceptually brilliant – but because of how utterly devoid of human empathy these people are.  I mean, number 8 on this list just takes the cake.  The one I fear the most on this list is “vishing”, which after reading it is just incredibly easy to set up.  I know, because I work for the phone company, and we’ll sell an 8xx number to anyone that walks in the door.  Two morals to this story: 1) Like the article says, if it’s too good to be true, it is… and 2) NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER give anyone your password to anything.

I feel a rant about biometrics coming on… I’ll get to work on that.  Trust me, you don’t want them in your life.  If you don’t believe me, just ask Bruce.
