I got the exact same one today, but the password was wrong. I've been seeing different versions of this scam for the last month or two.
They're getting desperate, it was up around $2400 a few weeks ago, apparently no one is biting on the scam.
These scams and general hacks are getting a lot smarter, including all the data being stolen from financial, banking and other online retail places. No information is truly safe anymore, even if you use different passwords at different places. The hackers break into the databases and steal the passwords.
I quote the part I'm responding to. If someone wants to read your whole post, they can scroll up to see it. I don't waste space and requote a complete post, like others do, i just quote just the point I'm referring to.
I'm really interested to hear what your home defense, deterrent, set-up and plan is. It would really be beneficial and I could learn something. Please post it.
