So, some Asshole Phisherman went phishing in my husband's email account and DUDE, he caught himself a big 'un. ......sigh....... I am not necessarily mad at X, but the latent data security analyst in me is screaming "How could you fall for that??!!?!?!" The thing is, X is actually quite savvy in the technical arena and usually knows what he is doing. I suspect the Asshole Phisherman merely caught X on a Slow Mental Day. Fortunately, our savings account wasn't wiped clean, we noticed the transfer immediately, and we should have our stolen money back shortly. Of course, now I am paranoid as to what else they are going to do to us - the Phisherman had access to our on-line bank statements which have all sorts of juicy details about us. I suppose I need to start contacting the credit bureau people. This does not bode well for my Paranoid Personality, folks.
So, Internet, take it from me, when you receive an email from anyone, DON'T USE THE LINK IN THE EMAIL. Open a new window and use your normal e-route.
