No, No, Nanette–A typical example of low-level ransomware


The mail message below was sent to a fictitious address at my mail domain, there's no Nanette here.


And if you're too young to get my subject line,

Anyway, I always keep my webcam pointed towards the ceiling, just in case!  ;-)

hi,


If u were more vigilant while playing with yourself, I wouldn't write did message. I don't think that playing with yourself is very awful, but when all colleagues, relatives and friends receive video record of it- it is obviously news.


I adjusted virus on a porn site which you have visited. When the target tap on a play button, device starts recording the screen and all cameras on your device starts working.


Moreover, soft makes a remote desktop supplied with key logger function from ur system , so I could collect all contacts from your e-mail, messengers and other social networks. I'm writing on did e-mail cuz It's your working address, so you should read it.


I suppose that 320 usd is pretty enough for this little false. I made a split screen video(records from screen (u have interesting tastes ) and camera ohh... its funny AF)


So its ur choice, if u want me to erase ur disgrace use my bitcoin wallet address:  1Ddm7UWzMTrY1q51XhzAdwvkU15JW4nzk4


You have one day after opening my message, I put the special tracking pixel in it, so when you will open it I will see.If ya want me to share proofs with ya, reply on this letter and I will send my creation to five contacts that I've got from ur device.


P.S... U can try to complain to police, but I don't think that they can help, the investigation will last for 5 month- I'm from Estonia - so I dgf LOL

CAN you believe these model cars?

See  Sandy's CanCars

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2480/3604/files/g_1296x.JPG?v=1509595866

There’s an associated hoax that's going around:
     Albert (Tapper) Torney and the Can Car Sculptures That He Did NOT Make

I was going to believe the tale about down-and-out Tapper Torney (received via a chain e-mail), but something smelt a bit off so I decided to check up on it and discovered Sandy’s fine model work.


While I'm at it, there's a bridge for sale, going real cheap!
Any takers?

Weird pricing–Some very ordinary books that cost a fortune

I don’t understand how this can happen (but freely admit that there are many things I don’t understand).

This is what puzzles me. On occasion, while searching some book-selling websites, I’ve come across some quite ordinary books – not rare centuries-old manuscripts, or the like – that are being sold at exorbitantly high prices, hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Just a few minutes ago I stumbled upon an example of this, at no less than Amazon. Examine the two screenshots below:

Screenshot A is for a paperback sold directly from Amazon, while screenshot B is for what seems to be exactly the same paperback but sourced from outside Amazon. More than $1,300 for a paperback, what effrontery!

How and/or why does this sort of price-gouging happen, at Amazon or elsewhere? It beats me.
