    I recently received two email messages from people who had been the
    victims of cybercrime. These people weren’t just readers of our
    blog—they work on our team. That means that they spend almost every day
    thinking about viruses, online fraud, security updates, and other issues
    of computer security.

    And they still weren’t immune to the threat.

    I got permission to share these stories in an effort to prove that
    cybercriminals are so tricky that they can even fool people who should
    know better.

    The irony is that for all the implied 'awareness' of security issues employees
    of some team of dolts should have had, they went ahead and got stupid as one
    of the girls admitted (the first one dubbed Christine) who claimed to have
    been affected by a virus (more likely something other than) by happy clicking
    on some web page she visited at work.
    Makes me wonder if these bimbos were hired as office decorations
    (pretty face, cute shoes) to just sit there and do their nails and makeup?

    Maybe it's because of the company you kept back-along.

    I actually *was* the victim of Cybercrime, Dustin!

    The perpetrators *did* know my actual address - and obviously still do!

    No. Amazingly enough, those who could have caused me problems didn't
    do so. Riled me a bit, but Rl they didn't go for. You OTH took the
    information provided by the remailer and ran with it. It's
    Which boggles the mind why you'd go out of your way to intentionally
    try and cause RL problems for another...My opinion is simply, you
    aren't the good guy you're trying to portray yourself as.
    Not necessarily...Credit card fraud (based on a description you
    provided once before) doesn't always imply they had anything on you.

    As I'm sure you'd be curious and would appreciate me elaborating on
    that, I won't. :)

    Here's a thread from wa ...ay back, Dustin!

    "I have recently had funds repaid to me by PayPal after a fraudulent
    withdrawal from my Credit Card account. The matter is now also in the
    hands of our Police; I reported the matter when I started to receive
    *emails* from [Email link removed by moderator] demanding that "lost"
    funds (reclaimed from them by PayPal) be paid directly to themselves.
    The writer knew not only where I live - but who lives here with me, the
    name of my next door neighbour, when I bought my cottage and how much I
    paid for it! Rather disturbing."

    D'you know, if I had considered BD in any way trustworthy for all this
    time, he'd have shitloads of personal info on me by now, freely given
    with no need for slimy insinuation, impertinent questions and innuendo.

    I don't know if you recall some months ago my telling him how trustworthy
    I considered him NOT to be in no uncertain terms. All he had to say about
    it was 'your comments noted' or some such macro bullshit he usually comes
    out with.

    His methods definitely fail, and fail badly.

    I think not.

    You have shown yourself up as a shallow and arrogant individual who
    cares only about himself, Aardvark.

    On the other hand, Dustin is *still* posting in SE (that's a success?
    Well, not necessarily a fail!) although he's also demonstrated that he
    has many traits in common with Aardvark.
