Recently, I’ve had a couple clients call in telling me they’ve received a scary, threatening email. What was special about this particular email was that it referenced a past password that they had used (in some cases, a very old one). This immediately gave the email more credibility and thus, they called me with concern.
Long story short, data breaches have happened in the past and many email-address/password combinations have been stolen, usually ones with poor passwords such as single dictionary words with or without capital letters.
These emails were a SCAM, albeit a very well-targeted one. If you see something like this or anything that seems urgent or scary online, slow down, think about it, and don’t hesitate to ask someone for a second opinion.
Here’s some interesting and/or scary further reading for you:
I have two used Windows 10 desktop computers for sale for $100 a piece. I’d recommend them for home use rather than for business, but they are in good shape and with good specs. Let me know if interested.
