Memes - SPAM, identity theft, ID theft, fraud

About This Category

This is a collection of pictures and sounds evocative of, or related to, memes.

A prime example of a meme or 'infective idea' might be a compulsive ad jingle that you can't get out of your head, or a memorable quote or 'one-liner' such as "Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!" from the film "Carry on Cleo" (see a BBC news item on top film quotes).

If you are interested in the science of thinking, the mind, and memes, then visit UK Memes Central, or read Dr Susan Blackmore's The Meme Machine.

  • phishing = SPAM, identity theft, ID theft, fraud = A form of SPAM used to try to steal valuable data from end-users, eg in identity theft. See the Anti-Phishing Working Group, who describes it thus: "Phishing attacks use both social engineering and technical subterfuge to steal consumers' personal identity data and financial account credentials. Social-engineering schemes use 'spoofed' e-mails to lead consumers to counterfeit websites designed to trick recipients into divulging financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords and social security numbers. Hijacking brand names of banks, e-retailers and credit card companies, phishers often convince recipients to respond. Technical subterfuge schemes plant crimeware onto PCs to steal credentials directly, often using Trojan keylogger spyware." Also see Microsoft's take on the issue.

    Two good UK-based anti-ID-theft sites are the Home Office's identity-theft.org.uk, and the CIFAS www.identityfraud.org.uk site.

    UK residents can and should regularly check their credit file for fraudulent activity with Experian (0870 241 6212), Equifax (08700 100 583) and Call Credit (0870 060 1414).

  • phishing = SPAM, identity theft, ID theft, fraud

This employs many devices to deceive you such as telling you not to disclose your details to anyone, not even PayPal! The giveaways (though you have to look hard for them) are:

  • the return path in the mail header (not shown here) is nothing to do with PayPal even though the From: address apparently is
  • the main link in the text is to a site with a numeric IP address (altered in the saved copy for safety), presumably nothing to do with PayPal (though some of the links, including images, are back to PayPal)
  • the odd spelling mistake
  • messy HTML apparently partly knocked up in Microsoft FrontPage
