Speaking of Scams

I got a phishing email yesterday posing as a Pay Pal communication, be careful all.

You know the funny thing is that those emails I get telling me that my ebay account is going to be closed unless I log in or the paypal ones, they don't even come to the right email address. I use my junk mail address for paypal and surprisingly even though I've thrown that address all over the web, I never get scams on that one, only my other legit ones which I pretty much never give out. Go figure. Though sometimes I do go ahead and follow their links to the login screens (which are spoofs of course) and type in some fake login name and password or I make them into a nice message just to play along and make'em think they've got another password.

I get those all the time, saying order confirmation so and so, or we need you to update your PayPal account numbers. Pfft....

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Yeah, I get it at least once a month.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
