I don't know about the location those emails are sent from but if you receive a phone call from the Windows Technical Administration telling you they've registered a problem with your computer that's causing problems nation-wide, that's coming from New Dehli most likely though they'll tell you Las Vegas.

 

I don't think the email people will ever improve their grammar or spelling. At least I hope they don't, there are too many people who don't know any better and end up firing off all their personal info including their credit card numbers. By coincidence my wife's debt card just got hacked to the tune of $91 and some change. We don't have a clue since she has never shopped on line.

Along that same line, the email scammers have developed the ability to read the to's and from's in your email and when they find email that looks like it's on a more personal level, like someone you know, they put that name in the 'from' spot on your email. It will read something like, "Dave thought you might be interested in this" which entices most people to open it which is bad. It most likely will contain a  nasty executable file to steal all the names and addys from your mail box, launch a key logger, or plant a nasty virus just for spite. Delete them unless your friend confirms it's from them.

Really? Do you know that Comcast person? Did you tell them they are in cahoots with some email scammers and that it looks really bad on a resume? Actually, names are really easy to come by. That's pretty typical, the name of a Comcast tech with a Cox return address. Problem is many, many people don't look that close. I didn't look that close long ago and had a hard drive destroyed so now I LOOK!

Openned my mail this morning, January 6, 2019, to find an email labeled from Hughes stating I needed to update all my information, of course, paying special attention to my credit card info.



Gee, I thought my speeling was pretty good. I used Grammarly.
