    Default Internet scammers are getting desperate...

    Sad sick pathetic losers grasping at straws...all the same, kind of funny
    New scam sent to my bookkeeper...

    "To: }σ~Aq┼#☼♣_:4
    Subject: You are stupid : xGDWas BCcNNlPyO

    Good day, my prey.
    I text you because I uploaded the virus on the porn site which you have gone on.
    When you visited this site you let my malware steal all your private info and switched on your camera which captured the act of your onanism. Later my malware made a copy of your contact list.
    I will delete the compromising video and info if I receive 370 Euros in bitcoins.
    This is address to pay: 13baihBaoLgK1KnE172S9ByjrNLv2LqpKM

    You have 24 h after you open my message to complete the transaction.
    It is not necessary to tell me that you have paid. This address is connected to you, my system will remove everything automatically after transfer verification.
    You can get 48 hours only reply on this letter with +.
    You can visit the police station but nobody will solve your problem.
    I dont live in your country. So nobody can catch me even for 6 months.
    Good luck. Think about the disgrace."

    I cannot imagine anyone falling for this scheme.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    WOW... we just get hit w/the telemarketer calls. I actually installed Mr. Numbers app on my phone to give me a heads up... it's SO bad they even use random numbers from where we have friends/relatives in that area. I already have ALL of our numbers on the government DO NOT CALL list, but it doesn't seem to work.

    If you have a landline, Nomorobo is the best. We have had it for a couple of years and it works very well. There are still the odd one or two that get through but if we don't recognise the number, we don't answer. I am still trying different apps for my mobile phone.

    These guys are the stupid ones. They are low life that prey on vulnerable people. We get scammers calling all the time saying they are from The Revenue Tax Office and that we owe taxes and will be arrested if we don't pay. I tell them I will call the Revenue Office myself, and they usually hang up. Such A holes.

    Havenít seen this one. My father has mellowed out in his old age I have to keep eyes on his phone, tablet and pc. I even had to sit down with him after he was getting a lot of pop ups, replying to scams and compromising materials and explained why he was getting them. This was a convo no where near my mother and very uncomfortable. He fell for the pop up that he had a virus on his pc and to call a number. While he was talking to them on the phone he called me over to help. They talked him into allowing him to access his pc and when I got to his house saw them accessing his pc. They had him on the phone saying for $300 they could clean his pc. I physically shut the pc down to disconnect everything. The number on the phone was international. The pc had no virus, I did three scans, different tools and confirmed he was clean. I was so shocked that he fell for that. Another talk, lol.

    Also I'm getting lots of phone calls on my cell phone from " Revenue Canada " saying I'm being audited and owe a lot of money. I of course hang up right away but I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't.
