Guess what, I’m a Central Bank customer. Oh wait, no I’m not. But some Phishing scam people are sending emails to people at Mizzou email addresses hoping that at least a few are members of the local bank. They have created a site that sure does look like Central Bank’s site care of an address that appears to be www.centralbank.net but is really
They ask for your login ID, I put in “calloway42” and hit login. What do you know, I’m in!
Notice the Phishing warning haha. But I “logged in” and got to this next screen asking me for my opinion on some random things and then my account number, expiration dates and pin number.
I’m pretty sure that I would need to provide a username and password to log into my account, at the least, and then they would already have this information. With my bank, Bank of America, I have to have a user account ID, a pin number, a picture identifier and finally a code that is sent to my cellphone each time I try to log in just to make positively sure only I can log into my account. If you want to do that, you gotta know those three items AND have my cellphone with you.
Oh well, it’s always fun to almost be phished. Also of note, none of the phishing pages were secure. Not the best phishing scam I’ve ever seen.
I’m all over iTunes, since the AppleTV my iTunes spending has been out of order… But I don’t pay a cable bill so it’s actually just about right and I get to keep the shows forever and watch them nearly anywhere.
So when a new show on ABC came out, I was all about getting the pilot episode. They typically are good about their one hour shows. The show is called Eli Stone and I really liked it. Of course… I also really liked The Bucket List. A lot.
Then I got to thinking, mind you I didn’t have to think too hard about this one… These two productions sure do seem similar.
They are based around a character who spends a good deal of time in front of a court.
Eli Stone is bisyllabic and then monosylabic as is Edward Cole
Main characters names both start with E’s
Both main characters are wealthy
The both have brain phenomena (not the good kind)
They are both dying (spoiler)
They are both on a voyage to find themselves
They both climb a fucking freezing mountain
The Kicker? They both carry someone’s ashes to the top of that fucking freezing mountain in a can of Chock Full o’Nuts Coffee can
It’s really quite ridiculous how similar they are, I could go one but I’ll be late for work if I do.
Don’t let this discount the tv show, it is pretty great. I got all teary eyed all over again, it’s like watching the movie (The Bucket List) but without the theater, expensive tickets and jerks in the back kicking your seat.
