Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

September Scam

How do I know this is a scam?

Let's see, the poor sentence construction makes me think the writer doesn't have good enough communication skills to work for the internet provider, the sender is anonymous, the "from" and "reply to" are different, and I'm pretty sure Centurylink would use its own e-mail account to notify its customers.

Plus, it looks like the scammer has hi-jacked some e-mail addresses. I'm pretty sure Gale Builders, LLC, located in Cleveland, Georgia, has nothing to do with this scam, although their email address seems to be where this is coming "from." 

The scammer wants my future password? I don't even know what my future one will be. And wouldn't the scammer already know my e-mail address?

If you get one of these e-mails, please don't fall for it.
