A Georgia man pleaded guilty last week to using phishing tactics to hack the Apple accounts and credit card details of a number of “high-profile” celebrities and athletes, scamming victims out of hundreds or thousands of dollars, according to the Justice Department.
I recently received two emails from “Australia Post”. Sent from different addresses, they informed me of an alleged package delay. But the joke was on them, I hadn’t ordered anything online that week (yet).
Late yesterday I received a strange text from “PayPal” informing me that a payment for $999.99 had just been declined. It looks like we might have a new scam on our hands.
