They are getting craftier.

The scammers – those people who use the internet to get information you do not want them to have – then they try to steal your money or data that is sensitive

Got this earlier today:

Dear Customer,

Our data isn’t really in “a cloud”. The word became popular as a way to describe how many organizations are using locations where thousands of computer servers are used to store data where any number of people, with permissions, can access the data and add to it.

Your Apple ID was used to sign in to iCloud via a web browser.
Date and Time: 03 August 2021, 07:49 PDT
IP Address, Country:, China – Shanghai

If the information above looks familiar, you can disregard this email.

If you have not signed in to iCloud recently and believe someone may have accessed your account, go to My Apple ID and change your password as soon as possible.
Apple Support

The problem with this notice is that we don’t have a CLOUD account – we have plans to set things up so that people can access some of our data.

These guys want to streak it before we are operating in the Cloud as a client.
Brazen bunch aren’t they.

There is a point here – as you make more use of the tools available – be really careful how you set things up.

    Here is the crux of the problem–currently the technology companies have NO LEGAL LIABILITY for the messages they are forwarding. I use hotmail for almost all my electronic communication; hotmail does an excellent job of forwarding suspicious emails to my junk file. However, it doesn’t prevent me or any other recipient from opening them and being scammed. Hotmail knows these messages are fraudulent–they are so brazenly soliciting personal information from the offers of “free” giveaways, prize winnings, home services, that their real purpose is all too obvious. Start to make Hotmail legal liable for aiding & abetting a fraud and see how quickly these messages are deleted by hotmail so that innocent victims are not exposed to them.
