Normally by blog/website is focused only on SQL Server topics, but this just jumped out at me and I have to share it.
The holiday shopping season is here again, and so are the scammers. Here is a copy of an email message that I received today, wanting a few simple things like name, age, eye color, home city, childhood best friend, and more. Basically everything they need to get into your bank account or other online accounts. All the “secret questions” that you answer in order to get a password reset on your bank account, or online trading account.
The promise is a letter from Santa, the reality is identity theft.
I order to keep the holiday season safe from scammers do what you can to educate others on these types of scams.
