Free nasty text chat
I don’t see why I owe everyone a Mother Teresa approach off the clock. It’s no one’s business what you write in private text messages to other people in your personal time.I’m now struggling to find another job, because my store manager has refused to let any of the department managers give me a reference, presumably because she’s offended because, well, she’s also the type to pin the poor size 2 girl next to her against the wall! You had a reasonable expectation of privacy in sending a private text message, and they’re wrong to fire you over this.The woman behind you was out of line in reading over your shoulder, photographing your phone, and sending it to your employer.She shouldn’t have been looking at a stranger’s phone in the first place, and she must have had to make a point of trying to see what you were writing; it’s not like it was forced into her line of vision and she couldn’t help reading everything you were writing.One of the more recent scourges coming over SMS are i Cloud scams.They aim to trick people into giving up the password that they use to get into their Apple account – and, once hackers are into that, then they can easily get your bank account details, your location, and more scary stuff besides.Most of these notifications just work like traditional phishing scams, where cyber criminals pretend to be a company so that users send them details.
It’s a sneaky way of getting people to put the authentication message that they have received from Google into a text message so that scammers can get around the security setup. Again, the key is never to enter any important codes into a text message or any unverified sites.One of the major problems with such scams is that it is now relatively easy to pretend to be someone else, over text.The technology that powers texts allows people to put custom names in when they send messages – allowing people to easily pretend to be Google, Apple or anybody else.I left work a couple of weeks ago, got on my bus to head home, and as always, spend the time on my phone — Facebook/Texting/Instagram, etc.At one point, my boyfriend texted me asking if I’d left work yet.
