Package Delivery Notification
In the past three days, I have had more than a dozen spam emails purporting to be from different sources with an identical company image and notification number. I know DHL is an international service, but really? Who do they think they’re trying to fool?
I suppose the Amazon’s Prime Days have made more people vulnerable to the scam than usual, but I didn’t order anything, so I know that no one would be sending me anything. But it makes me wonder how many people fall victim to these scammers, because they think it works. (One of them had a Norwegian email address, another a German one, and a third wrote the English letters as if in Greek.)
And after last Friday’s Rogers’ outage, I am even more determined to be wary and aware. Beware, folks.
I’ve had three weeks (at least) of having someone try to guess my password to my old hotmail account. Thankfully they have been unsuccessful so far. I just don’t get why someone would go to such attempts – literally every hour or so every day for the last three weeks – and hiding through a VPN so it looks like I’m being targeted from numerous places around the globe. Strange. Makes me want to withdraw from online life even more.

Unfortunately, ‘free’ accounts mean freedom for someone else to try to use them instead of you. If they had guessed your password, you would have been none the wiser, but your friends and relatives would have been catfished. It’s a shame, but that’s the ways of the world, these days.
I just got another spam email. The address? email@example.com – Russia! If you’re interested, the DHL reference is always the same: 58412233520000.
