Episode #29 - 'Tis the Season to be Ripped Off

The tech, the calls, and clicks of folly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
‘Tis the season to rob Holly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Don, he shops online in peril 
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
Scammers have him over a barrel
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

  •  'Tis the season for scammers to scam, and scam they will.
  • There's more opportunity than ever, with online shopping expecting to increase 38% over last year.
  • We're more distracted than ever, with COVID-19, social justice issues, election gibberish, etc.

The equation is simple for the scammers:

Opportunity + Distraction = Success

Killer Robots? Oh Shit.

If you missed last week’s episode, the Security Shit Show crew tackled the difficult discussion about morals and ethics. There are two ways to treat you ears and/or eyes (not likely) to Episode #5, "Moral and Ethical Shit in a Shitty World" : YouTube (video) Podcast (audio) It was an really good episode. A little bit of shit-slinging, but mostly just great discussion and opinion. If you like our shit, you should subscribe to our shit. Subscribe on YouTube or whatever your favorite podcast thingy is.
