No wonder I get so many calls offering to remove the virus from my computer. This scam is alive, well, and highly profitable. And not all of the loot is transferred through iTunes cards, but in cash.
A local shipping company seems to have taken it upon themselves to thwart the scammers by looking into suspicious packages.
It’s a little disturbing that a clerk would feel free to open up a package I left with them for shipping, as I have used their services occasionally, but I guess they can get by with that legally since they are not USPS or UPS or Fedex employees. I only hope they don’t get in trouble for this. Who’s gonna sue?
