Very intelligent people who could be using their brains honestly sure picked the wrong path.
My son called me up yesterday about an e-mail from revenue Canada stating he has a e-transfer of around $800 available, just hit a link and you can deposit it in your account.
I taught him years ago that if it looks too good it is a scam so he did some checking and it is a scam for identity theft. I just received the e-mail today with the same intent. It does not bother me too much when someone scams a bank of large corporation but scamming private individuals kind of pisses me off.
I know they are going to catch some people, I hope they get caught and sent to prison with a cell mate called Bubba.
