How to deal with scam emails.

Hope you find this as funny as I do.


I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.

Re: Another plausible-looking scam

I had the same one last week, but my password that it quoted, while genuine, hadn't been used for at least 5 years. I did a bit of checking and read that many details were harvested from a data breach some years ago and the scammers are using those.
