PAYLOAD;; issue 20
Thanks for joining me.
It’s Threat Level Midnight for internet scams right now.
As if seeing multiple “gaming” PCs for sale ($1k+!) with no video cards inside wasn’t enough, a close personal friend of mine came to me for help with his hacked Facebook account. If only he had been listening to my warnings for all these years! I showed him some free, open-source tools he can use to manage and protect his accounts from here on out. One of the tips was to start using BitWarden.
Keep your head on a swivel and a close hand on your wallet; the scammers are out in full force.
Unfortunately, after the damage is done there are limited options. Often times people are hoping I have a magical wand that I can wave around for them. Spoiler: no one does. Sometimes the wisest, most shrewd move is to start over fresh with the correct personal security hygiene. It can be a tough pill to swallow once you’ve been had, however you can always rebuild more strongly.
I’d love to help you with that.
