Latest Scams, Viruses, Malware and other nasties

I constantly get calls in Mandarin telling me that there is a problem with my Visa.
Haven’t been to China since 2011 though.

Also, love getting the calls from ■■■■■■■■ scammers calling themselves John Smith or Mary Jones or similar, but who have such a thick Indian accent that even Modi would be need a translator. FOAD painfully to all of them.

I’ve had a couple of emails from Paypal the last 2 days looking to transfer Bitcoin, one for $USD250 and one for $USD200. Funnily, both try to hit my Visa account rather than my Bank account, and neither have got past the 2-factor authentication.

I would prefer that Paypal took a sterner approach, as in sending electric shocks threough the scammer’s computer.
