    Thanks for sharing Tony. I haven't seen this one yet. Wish they would learn to make a living in an honest manner.

        That's scary because Travis over at the Village just started using Stripe as a payment for sponsorship/membership.

        Too early to leave, too late to call in.

          When we lived overseas (Japan) in the early 2000's, my wife rarely used her credit card. Then one month, for numerous stateside family birthdays (5) in one month, she used her card. Within a week, she got an email from her CC company (it was fake) stating that "We noticed that you recently used your card for several orders. We suspect that someone may have used your card illegally. We will close this card unless you respond immediately." A link was given. LOML told me the gist and said "I need to respond to them now." Me: NO, NO, don't do that. It is Fake!"
          However, she would not believe me. I called our tech guy and he assured her that that was a phishing scam, and then explained what that was. She still said, "How did they know that I recently used it." Me: They didn't, they made that up to scam those who fit the profile by sheer coincidence. It happens.

          Since then, she has become very scam wary.

            In several of the browsers and/or email programs, if you hover your mouse over one of the blue links they want you to click on (do NOT click on them, just hover your mouse pointer), you can look at the bottom of your screen to see the actual real link. For instance, I got a suspicious email supposedly from Amazon saying I needed to update my account....when I hovered over the blue links my browser showed me that where I would've been taken to is: www.honeybeeventures.xyz. Another, supposedly from Paypal would've taken me the address that email was from was actually: 1551296200.0000070318@jeembutan.email@z.com Hovering unveils soooo many hidden things and saves me from making phone calls to check with banks or anyone else. Just don't click on those buggers!

              Well speaking of all this ugly stuff on the Internet, been using Amazon for years, we bought something on Feb 7th for 23 odd dollars, out of Amazon Seattle WA. Checked the bank as I was paying bills.....4 pages of charges, which started just hours after our purchase. They were in Amazon, Canada, Maine, Florida....total nearly 1800.00 dollars. Contacted Bank, Amazon, Lifelock......just getting things squared up, be careful. Did some research, Amazon Seattle has Complaints of bogus charges totaling millions, along with lawsuits.

                  I have a notice from my bank on all my cards for any charges over $1. I also have my cards locked when not using them and carry them in a case that can’t be read through. My business acct was hacked 3 times last year. Each time, the bank caught it and froze my card. They told me to call the number on the back of my credit card and ask for fraud Dept.

                    Amazon Seattle is just an Amazon hub in that city
