Our checking account got hacked today. Thankfully, plenty of things have gone wrong recently, and if nothing else, we have learned to laugh! It helps that my husband is hilarious.
Among the things purchased were discount perfume, a $300 bracelet, and antivirus software. As Stephen was going through each charge with someone from the bank, they said the Mcafee antivirus purchase seemed “normal”–did we purchase it? To which Stephen replied, “Nope. I have a Mac. I’m not paying for anymore antivirus!”
The hacker also renewed his Vimeo account for $60, and then registered a new domain name. Stephen went to the website and found that a new domain name is $3.99, and this hacker spent $399–purchasing a hundred years registration for this particular domain name. Who hacks an account and thinks of a hundred year registration and antivirus?
