Just a Quick Thought..

I was going through the various spam messages on ThatJoeGuy.com and found an interesting one.

It was a message from jolieheavener@gmail.com who wrote….

It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you few interesting things or advice.
Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.

I wish to read more things about it!

I still have his comments listed as SPAM, and now wish to put it in the frame of a SCAM..

The URL that came with this comment goes back to http://free-wifihack.com/. Going to the URL I found this statement…

Unlock any available wireless network

We offer you the software able to unlock any wifi network encrypted through WPA/WPA2/WEP key. Without exaggeration, it is the greatest wifi hacker available.

 

It is interesting to note that at the according to whois.com the sight is either registered, or is located, in Panama.

The software is advertised as being FREE and able to HACK the encryption protocols of WiFi networks. This sent up the first RED FLAG for me… This is pretty much the same as if I sent out an offer to give free lock picks that would allow you to get into anyones home, or office, for free… Either of these events would be illegal, and they seem to be advocating just that..

The next RED FLAG that I found was that they had a number of different ICONs on the page that implied the software was virus free, and they used  logos of a number of antivirus companies to imply that this software had been vetted by them.. It was just a picture and none of them took me to the indicated websites.

Net there are the seeming endorsements, none of which go anywhere. This is a sure indication that they are fake, and just copy and past ICONS.

.

If any of this had been true they would have had links behind them that would take you to the site where they could be verified but, they don’t.
One of the customer statements said so. Tested it myself and am more than pleased. And it all goes free. Sounds too good to be true, yet it is  Yes, it is too good to be true..
Anybody using this software would be breaking laws in almost any jurisdiction I can think of… if it did indeed work as stated.. My best guess would be that the minute anyone installed this software : their computer would itself be compromised..
So, the chance of this being a generous offer made by a company in Panama are pretty much NIL.
I am sure anyone who is able to find my blog, out of all the millions of blogs, is smart enough to not fall for this scam. I just wanted to make sure.
Thanks,
That Joe Guy.

In the last presidential elections I voted Libertarian, as I the two main choices seemed to be between lying crook, or an uncouth babler who could not be trusted.
