    After my mother got gift card scammed it's turned into a every other day phone call to make sure she hasn't gotten/taken any weird phone calls. She's finally able to accept that unless a name pops up on her received calls that it's not worth picking up.

    I'm pretty sure that I got my skeptical nature from my mom. She's 88, and I have little fear of her getting phone-scammed. If she's even slightly unsure about a phonecall, she'll call and ask me about it.

    Mostly though, she just ignores any number she doesn't recognize.

    A bunch of the youtube anti-scammers set up this "anti-scam" callcenter for a week and filmed it. Jim Browning was there, but always wore a mask to hide his identity. Honestly, I'd probably hide my identity too if I was costing people hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. People
    kill over that shit.

    What the hell you guys talking about?


    Youtube videos where people strike back at the scammers over in India. These people pretend to be old people who pretend to go along with the scammers, and the scammers ask for access to their computer to "fix" their problems. But when they do, the scam baiters actually go in and cause problems for the scammers. Usually deleting their files, or downloading them and calling the victims to let them know that they've been scammed.

    Either way it's entertaining for us to see those guys get scammed themselves!

    If I remember right, lastpass was hacked last september. Good think I deleted my lastpass account and moved to bitwarden.
    I love me some BitWarden!

    i guess the nigerian prince scam still gets 700k a year. they also still do the thing where they get the person to meet them in an airport and
    they kidnap them and get a ransom.

    I went out on a few dates with a Russian girl in Dubai and eventually she told me about her job - she would travel to Indonesia and other places to find people to come to Dubai to work on construction projects. She would take their passports while inprocessing in Dubai and then hold the passports for like years while the workers paid off their "debt" that they incurred signing on to the project. It is basically human slavery. Super fucked up.

    There is still a lot of slavery in the world today. We don't consider it as slavery because it looks a bit different, but it is slavery neverthelss.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same...

    Am I too old-school? I use keepass with a strong password and sync the
    password file to a personal cloud account? Works on multiple PCs and my
    phone, and it's free.

    And there's another New-Years-Resolution for me... start using a
    password control application. My current system of an Office document
    and yellow stickies is not ideal. ;-)

    Is 'KeePass' the one to go with? Recommendations appreciated, and it
    needs to run on Linux.

    Hey Gamgee,

    BitWarden is free and open source (with a .89+ cent a month paid tier) and available for both windows and linux. Can be self or cloud hosted. So far they have been a reputable company. They have passed security audits for far.

    I have used keypass for years it's great! I also have it backed up to a cloud account. I also use apple key chain with my phone and PC

    Keepass and close derivates are fine for Linux desktops.

    If you prefer something CLI oriented, there is pass, also known as password-store.

    Nah man can't be too old school! I use BitWarden because it's a free opensource program. BUT, I only use it for my throw-away accounts that I can replace without repercussions, and aren't attached to my important billing accounts etc... The main reason I like to use bitwarden is because I keep the program on my desktop, an app on my phone because when I am traveling (I travel a bit for work) I always seem to get logged out of something somewhere, especially when I connect to a new network or decide to VPN - I am booted out and get tired of being booted out of my own stuff. I could do the cloud way for sure, but this has worked well for me. I for one though, do not trust any password keeper service that charges you, or has a corporate name attached!

    We're not truly safe, 'cept down here!

    It works for me, and it has a ton of plugins. I use one that will
    auto-launch Remote Desktop or Putty under Windows, I'm sure there's
    similar functionality for Linux.

    I end up using it more like a configuration DB, putting notes into
    Keepass and using it to launch terminal instances.

    Okay, cool. I have (probably) decided to go with 'KeepassXC' which is a
    fork of Keepass, and is cross-platform, runs on Linux without needing
    'mono' to be installed.

    If you prefer something CLI oriented, there is pass, also known
    as password-store.

    For now I'm going with a graphical client, but I'll keep that in mind,
    thanks!

    Okay, thanks and that's very interesting. I'm gonna get started with 'KeepassXC' and see how things go. Thanks for the input!
