@7LM - if only that was true.

Unfortunately they use hacked systems so they donít pay as we do

I actually stopped a full blown scam including PayPal and the email addresses amounted to over 800,000 complete with username passwords and I can see exactly how they were wanting to manipulate systems by introducing virtual pc.

All they need is a foothold on a pc/server, from windows, Linux and apple.

I still have it all

It is frightening and worst is, you would not believe the passwords used by users.

I could take a snapshot of the actual software (not installed but was going to be), and the brute force dictionary attack to compromise

Many thanks

I got the scam email with the password included, it was even listed in the subject header.

The strange part of this is that the email in question isn't on any of the pwned sites, which I find interesting as its my oldest email account which I got with pipex.

The password isn't one I've used to login anywhere in the recent years so it must be a small password leak from some place.

I got one today, in my Hotmail account which I use for one off visits to sites that require a Login. I also had an OLD password in the header, I suspect its not been used for a few years. I get a lot of Spam in my Hotmail account, but its also my Microsoft registered email address so I cant easily dump it.

No web cam, clean PC and no I don't !
