Bill Geraci shows us How to tell a bad e-mail at a glance. And more on security.
Here is Bill's description:
Bill Geraci has been keeping examples of bad (eg: scam, fraudulent, insecure) e-mails since July to 2000 and has only 611 examples to date…. Come take a random tour of the oldest to most recent to see how a computer guy spots such a scam at a glance. And we’ll use this as a touchstone for security issues on computers.
Here is Bill's bio: Born and raised in Northern California, Bill Geraci moved to Chicago in 1983 where he's been recovering ever since. After one quarter he dropped out of the University of Chicago as a graduate student…and, over the next years met and married his wife, going from a restaurant cook to library supervisor to Computer Guy, tried to help raise three children and became staff at the University of Chicago. He's gone through being a full-time almost-solely Macintosh consultant to, again, being a staff guy at the University of Chicago. Having given up earlier tries at Classical Greek, Sanskrit, Philosophy and pipe organ performance and maintenance, he's now considered expert presenter on Mac systems, hardware and software (as well as some other stuff). In spite of these mishaps, misdirections and boons, he continues his recoveries and remains hopeful. And he has gone back to playing Baroque pipe organ. I mean, doesn’t everyone?
