LOL. The RAT extortion #scam hit my inbox/ #spam box.

My thoughts:
First, you emailed a catch-all address. You couldn't log in and send it to me from this email address because there isn't an #email account.

Second, I don't have webcam hooked up.

Third, my Parkinson's let that boat sale a long time ago.

Forth, I don't have a bashful bone in my body. Go ahead. Press send.

Don't get fooled if one comes to your email. #infosec

I wonder how many people fall for this?

Extortion email scam content: Hello there!

Unfortunately, there are some bad news for you.

Some time ago your device was infected with my private trojan, R.A.T (Remote Administration Tool), if you want to find out more about it simply use Google.

My trojan allowed me to access your files, accounts and your camera.

Check the sender of this email, I have sent it from your email account.

To make sure you read this email, you will receive it multiple times.

You truly enjoy checking out porn websites and watching dirty videos, while having a lot of kinky fun.


After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces.

If you still doubt my serious intentions, it only takes couple mouse clicks to share the video of you with your friends, relatives, all email contacts, on social networks, the darknet and to publish all your files.

All you need is $5000 USD in Bitcoin (BTC) transfer to my account.

After the transaction is successful, I will proceed to delete everything.

Be sure, I keep my promises.

Heute lernte ich, dass es inzwischen zum guten Ton gehört, bei Newslettern und Werbemails einen List-Unsubscribe-Header aufzunehmen, über den dann Programme automatisiert das Abo kündigen können.

#k9mail scheint das auch zu supporten, unter den 3 Pünktchen findet sich bei einem Newsletter der Menüpunkt für Unsubscribe.

Bei #thunderbird auf dem Desktop konnte ich aber leider keine Funktion dafür finden. Es scheint ein Drittanbieter-Plugin zu geben, das wird aber seit 2 Jahren wohl nicht mehr gewartet und die Bewertungen lesen sich so, als wäre es irgendwann kaputt gegangen.

Weiß jemand mehr dazu? Wie kann ich diese coole Funktion in Thunderbird nutzen?

Ich bin Agent Gertrude Stein, neu ernannter Interpol Betrugsermittler der Europäischen Union, und arbeite Hand in Hand mit der Betrugsabteilung der Vereinigten Staaten, der Kriminal Investigation Division (CID).

Ich bin auf Hintergrundermittlungen zu Fonds spezialisiert, zu denen [Entschädigungs-/Erbschaftsfonds oder Angehörige], Konsignationsbox, Lotto® JACKPOT, Darlehen] gehören, und ich habe festgestellt, dass Sie zahlreiche E-Mails von Personen erhalten haben, die behaupten, dass ihnen Gelder zustehen. Wir legen ihnen nahe, jeglichen noch bestehenden Kontakt umgehend einzustellen, da, nach unsern Ermittlungen feststeht, dass auch sie ein Betrugsopfer sind.

Wir geben hiermit bekannt, dass wir vor einigen Tagen die Ergebnisse der Ermittlungen erhalten haben. Ich denke, es wird Sie interessieren, warum diese Untersuchung durchgeführt wurde. Zu Ihrer Information: Es wurde tatsächlich bestätigt, dass Ihnen eine 100 % legitime ausbezahlte Transaktion zusteht und Sie jedes Recht haben den Betrag zu beanspruchen. Aufgrund der Verzögerungen bei der Übermittlung dieser Mittel wurde über den Europäischen Gerichtshof entschieden, dass diese Gelder umgehend an sie Ausbezahlt werden müssen.

What's for dinner tonight ?
Spam by Hormel with Spam Polynesian recipe, 1970
#dinner #spam #cooking #recipe #food #advertisement #retro #vintage

spam in a sweat sticky sauce surrounded by white rice and veggies

My new release "Dead Internet" comes out this #FridayThe13th!

It's #vaporwave #music that starts out nostalgic, but over time distorts into a creepy husk of itself, symbolising the death of the #Internet as we knew it thanks to #enshittification, #bots, #advertising, the erosion of #privacy, #spam, #scams, #paywalls, demands you create an account or disable your #AdBlocker, and the #AI-powered #SEO race to the bottom.

You can #PreSave and check out its #merch here:

Video playing the first 2 minutes and 22 seconds of my upcoming vaporwave track "Dead Internet" in Logic Pro.

MIDI regions are coloured purple at the top and form a gradient to turquoise at the bottom.

The music opens with a bell pad crescendo that quickly gets faster, then a trumpet melody and another upbeat bell melody.

What follows is a heavily-reverbed beat and bell melody inspired by sounds like that of Windows 95, then a funk bassline melody kicks in, followed by another bell melody section introduced by the same trumpet and bell sounds from the beginning. Music notes shown in the video.

As for this video's thumbnail, it's Dead Internet's cover artwork.

With a pastel purple, turquoise, and white colour scheme, it's set in a vaporwave world with a white line grid on the floor and in the sky.

An anthropomorphic cartoon bear called Cockburn (pronounced "co-burn"), who wears a purple hoodie and is coloured purple himself (he's usually yellow), is surrounded by pop-ups dominating the front of the image.

These include a paywall, a 404 page not found window, a crypto ad, bot spam messages, a sign-up form asking for too much information like a birth certificate and ID card, ads encouraging buying likes and followers, a pop-up telling the user to disable scripts, a window showing an AI content generator, and a picture of a black swan.

At the bottom is the phrase "dead internet", written in sans-serif font and distorted with a line through it, in the style of a captcha.
