dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

A friend sent me a note:

“Keep a watch out for people standing near you at retail stores, restaurants, grocery stores, etc., that have a cell phone in hand. With the new camera cell phones, they can take a picture of your credit card, which gives them your name, number, and expiration date.  Identification theft is one of the fastest growing scams today, and this is just another example of the means that are being used.  Be aware of your surroundings.”

Snopes thinks if it’s not legit now, advances in cell phone tech will make it so.

This is damn clever.

Note to self: buy fancy new cell phone and pay lawyers retainer.
