Online dangers increase due to coronavirus

Just a heads up for the folks out there.
Many reports of malicious sites spreading malware/viruses trying to steal your info.
Be careful with your online activity!

This unique situation is a golden egg for all cyber criminals out there!
I would guess more people online that any other time in history?

Keep a very close eye on all your bank & credit accounts!

Psssh, I'm still waiting for my new Russian bride to arrive, and that Prince in the Congo to get back to me about all my new cash to worry about something as trivial as online security.

BTW, click here to be removed from our email list.

Yeah. We already had two illegal charges on our checking account hit. The wait at Chase Bank's Fraud phone number was over an hour when I called.

It's also open season for the card skimmers.
Nobody around watching/paying attention.

One report states ~350% jump in malicious phishing websites alone.
I can only imagine the increase in attempted email attacks.

The fact is they're playing on people's fear and urgency for info.
Many many people will fall victim, if not more careful than normal.
