I would imagine it's targeted as the non-gamer people with laptops and integral webcams.

I get those all the time and I don't have a webcam either.
it's because you go on loser websites looking at pictures of girls in anime costumes.

i've never received some dodgy scam email from the dark underbelly of the internet.

It was on my burner email which indeed gets signed up to the sketchy stuff.

you get these emails because one of your email accounts was compromised at some time in the past, maybe with your password too (or your password has been cross-referenced against other hacked accounts).  The email lists get posted in pastebin or the like, and some troll blasts out emails like the one you saw to everyone on that list. Sometimes they will have an old password included, to make you think they actually DID hack your email.

you can check https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if any of your email addresses have been compromised. You will probably find the email address you received that hacker spam from on there. You can also search your passwords to see if any email/pw combos have been found.

i remember years ago that site, or at least one very much like it, would show you all the usernames and passwords that had been made public. you could basically go to it with someone else's email address or full name only and make off with all their details.

It'll be a cold day in Australia before I put my email and/or passwords into some flaky website.

You don't need to worry about me, I have several bank accounts which are immune from the weekly audit.

having a lot of money is clearly working wonders for you socially and romantically. is that the first thing you tell the wonder women impersonators at the cons?

How should I tell one of my friends to stop driving like a jackass? She always drove fast, but used to have a shitbox that still kept her pretty well within the normal realm people tend to go. However, she recently bought a 5.0 Mustang that allows much stupider behavior. Occasionally I get snapchats like "newest top speed I've gone 120, 126, 135" etc when she's driving home on country roads at night. It makes me awful nervous because fucking anyone can put their foot down and go fast, but few people have much experience of needing to stay in control if something goes awry. In the past I've half-seriously responded about finding a track day nearby where she ought to take it. It's happening frequently enough now that I don't want to find out she's Paul Walker'd herself.

Hell if I know. It was like one of the $45k ones. She's tacked that on in addition to paying her student loans for some reason. I also learned that my perception of a normal car payment is like 1/3 of what the average is.

Its amazing how much people care about a number on a dial.
Tell her this is how she could end up

Its really bad for your instagram stream.

If she's too dumb to worry about her personal safety try showing her how much damage will be done to her precious shit-heap rear-wheel drive dinosaur car.
Take her to some car yards or police pounds to see some smashed cars, and ask the people there what sort of speed the cars were crashed at.
Its eye-opening how much damage is done at trivial speeds. 120MPH and there will only be fragments of the car and people.

Otherwise maybe its not a good idea to mess with Darwinian selection, its bad for the species as a whole.
Track days just make people drive faster and while everyone thinks they can manage a drift like on Fast and Furious in practice no-one can stay in control once a car lets go on a typical road.

I think I mentioned last year how I found other coworkers of mine (who were also in their 20s or 30s) had pitifully low seatbelt usage. People in general just do not comprehend the forces involved in driving. When I'm coasting to a stop, I'll often look out the window as I'm still going 50, 40, 30 and look at just how slow that seems, despite still being potentially fatal depending on circumstances. We all know about the theory of risk compensating behavior and people rolling in SUVs think they're invincible nowadays. Unless people have close calls, I think it's like the idea of death penalty as a crime deterrent: people don't think they'll ever be in that situation.

It's frustrating.

Its easy to do the maths, a head-on crash or hitting a wall at 120 MPH/195kmh is equivalent to being dropped from 160m into concrete.

There was an interview with someone who was a live crash test dummy in the very early days of crash testing, everyone thinks they can 'brace themselves' but even at trivial speeds like 10-20MPH the forces are collosal, people are thrown around like rag dolls.
At 30MPH your seatbelt can burst your spleen or heart, no seatbelt means a broken neck or being thrown out of the vehicle.

But stupid is as stupid does, what can you do?
