Don’t buy these books…

I came across these books on Amazon the other day and thought it was odd that Amazon would even list these books for sale. I believe that someone probably wrote a simple computer program that goes through Wikipedia and slurps categorical Wikipedia entries, like aerial photographers or American cartographers, formats the text, and then uploads the content as a book. Nonetheless, I don’t recommend spending $19.99 for either of these books!

Last month I discovered a SMSishing scam that was hitting many DC area residents. Over the last few days I’ve received two more fraudulent messages trying to get me to call a number to turn my ATM card back on.
The first said:
Notice! / This is an automated message from Lafayette Federal Credit Union. Your ATM card has been suspended. To reactivate call urgent at 866-506-0288.
The second said:
ApplicationCenter / This is an automated message from Lafayette F.C.U. .Your ATM card has been suspended.To reactivate call urgent at 1-567-248-8594
I can only wonder how many people fell for this scam?
