I have just gotten a cry for help (and money) from Susie in Arabia., who was, ostensibly stuck in England after a robbery.
And while I was looking into how I could help her, and send money, I asked her for more details which were not coming, I mean I got mail but no answers, it felt more and more dodgy. So I asked some security questions, no answer.
So while still trying to help i also tried to mail her family and then I checked her website. And oh, yes! Susie has been hacked!
And the hackers are in England, or their accomplices are…
So nobody send Susie any money!
They wanted me to send money through ”Western Union” Does this mean they can just impersonate susie with a fake passport and collect the money?
Interestingly there was something on the news today about Western Union, that although you need a passport, these criminals threaten the Western union offices and the employees give them the money even though they know they are criminals!
I think people should refrain from using Western Union completely. There must be other ways to help people in need.
And defenitely check if they are who they are!!!!
And, people, reset your password from time to time! And never use something people know about you! Make a ridiculous jumble with letter, numbers and symbols!
