Frau G just discovered a scam on her debit card. Somebody in England was using it in small amounts over the past month. There were several payments to a phony company called Eat Fresh. The total was only about $80. Our bank refunded it. The point is always check your bank statements.
Also a friend of mine who was a grad student when I was doing research received an email from our old major professor asking for money to help him buy a new IPhone for his wife. They wanted him to photograph the front and back of his credit card. Over the next couple days he received a bunch of other scams via email claiming to be our old major professor who is 90 years old.
Which reminds me of a certain Zerblat story. It’s a pretty good one. I’ll make a note and post it next month.
