“Operation Hackerazzi” and Identity Theft Through Email
By now, you’ve heard all about the hacker who gained access to celebrities’ email accounts and the personal files contained within (Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis are among the 50+ victims). On today’s show, we talk to Lisa Feldman, an Assistant United States Attorney familiar with the case, about the man whom the FBI has charged with a range of cyber-related crimes, including aggravated identity theft. Feldman will give the chilling details on just how the crime was committed, shedding light on just how vulnerable our personal information is once it’s out in cyberspace (even when you think it’s completely secure).
ConsumerMan Talks About a New Scam & Breaking Up With Your Bank
Herb Weisbaum, aka The ConsumerMan on MSNBC, will also be joining us to talk about a new scam hitting the Western U.S. called “smishing” in which scammers pose as your bank and try to bait you with fake text or voicemail messages; why banks want you off debit cards; and how to break up with your bank.
