Internet nuisances .

Another day, another internet scam! I woke up to 56 emails. Since then there have been another 30 and counting.... They all tell me that an email I sent last night could not be delivered. They seem to be working through a very long list of the other people receiving the same original e mail!
I am not sure what the perpetrators get out of this but beware!
Every evening this week I have had an email offering me ordering medication on line. Every other night I've just deleted it but last night I sent a reply. It asked them not to keep sending me mail because I'm never going to buy any medecines on line...
It's only a few weeks since I got the fake Apple account email which involved me cancelling my credit cards....it's very easy to fall for these scams especially late at night sitting up in bed with your iPad!
I am clearly falling into bad habits...so for all of you fellow night owls....beware...the great social media unwashed are out to get us!
Fighting back doesn't seem to work....so from now on I will just delete anything that comes my way before opening it!

  1. I regret to say that was not the end of the matter. Apple closed my account because it had been hacked so I have been unable to use it today! I have talked to them and a solution is being found. Anyone trying to reach me by email I'm afraid will not manage it for a while.....arghhhhh
