Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Kabo wants me to call…

You may not believe me when I tell you this, but..

I have never met, or spoken to, anyone named “Kabo”..

There is much I could say here.

But I think all I am going to say today is, I would have to have my head examined if I considered opening this.

‘Cuz, ya’ know, there has kinda been this email Rule, like, from the very beginning? It goes: If You Don’t Recognize The Sender, Delete It Immediately And Unopened.

And there’s darned good reasons for that Rule: scuzball scammers like this spammer.

Don’t be a victim. Exercise good, healthy, “paranoid common sense” on the Internet. Protecting yourself is your responsibility – not some mythical Internet Police Good Guy force… (Hate to tell you, but there is no such thing.)

Today’s quote:Continuous, unflagging effort, persistence and determination will win. Let not the man be discouraged who has these.” ~ James Whitcomb Riley

    • tamaraduquette,
      The bad guys are using psychology to try to craft lures our curiosity cannot resist (or overtly appeal to our basest natures – sex, greed, etc.) so we need to arm ourselves with a little “psychology” too. I call it “paranoid common sense”, but others might call it, “resist the urge to look”, or “just say no (to opening unsolicited mail)”.
