I open my email to saying I had an account hacked, a game purchased on paypal and my Alexa wanting to be set up. Weird. I can’t find the charge on my paypal. I cant seem to get the so call hacked account reset and “just leave it” per customer service as I call them at 6am. Who knows if this charge is real because it isn’t showing up on paypal.
90 minutes of wasted time. It all may be a scam. I changed passwords where I could. I will watch my bank account and all my accounts. Yet, there is a nagging thought in my head. Did I fall for a scam? Did I do something wrong? Is my identity secure and my accounts ok?
Who knows? And I will make more changes as the light of day comes. I am hoping it is all a scam and that nothing comes of it. I am so tired of it. What is real isn’t so clear anymore. Emails aren’t always real, phone calls or texts aren’t either.
The moral of the story: be safe, change passwords often and don’t extend the feeling of not knowing what’s real about online transactions to people I know. It’s all about not losing trust or faith or whatever you want to call it , with people in my life.
So Monday starts off oddly. Not a great way to start the full week of work, the holidays are over and the work week is beginning. Nose to the grindstone and all.
Back to life, back to reality . I am going to smile anyway and trust it will all be worked out. That’s how criminals work, I guess, by causing confusing, fear and frustration. I won’t fall for it, I think it’s all a scam.
