I love it when a plan comes together

Just got a phone call from someone claiming to be Amazon Customer Support, trying to confirm recent purchases. This was suspicious not because of his random phone number and strong Indian accent, but because he claimed to be Amazon Customer Support, a group that is slightly less mythical than the Easter Bunny.

I asked him what the email address associated with this Amazon account was, and he carefully spelled out “outdoorlimited@…”.

So I hung up, changed my password at Outdoor Limited, and contacted their customer service to let them know they’d been hacked.


...and another one today. Oddly enough, they hung up before I could.
