Invitation to Guest Write on this Blog


I would like to extend an invitation to readers and followers of Towards Better Democracy to guest write on the blog. The problem is that few will read this post so I may have to repeat this invitation in future posts.

The topic can be anything within the ambit of what the blog posts. The exchange between a potential guest and the writer would take place on Drop Box which is easy to use. The folder containing guest writer and myself would be locked with access only to the two parties. 

The writer retains the right to edit the piece or refuse the piece but would not change the spirit of it. The guest piece can be of any length within reason. The guest will retain copyright of the piece and it can be something already posted on the guest’s blog. The guest may call for anonymity but should provide, whether identified or not, a short three to four line bio on themselves where they reside, country only.

Starting point will be the comments column where a potential guest can express interest.

Chase Bank phishing


As I mentioned in a previous post, I am of a mind to use this platform to inform and warn on Web activity that threatens us.

Tuesday morning I started work early. About 4.00 am CST. Checking the mail in Spam was a thing that looked the spitting image of a Chase email.

“Due to unusual logging in activity your current account has be shut down.”

I read no further. I checked More Details and, loh, the email address looked as if it had come from Mars.

Checking my account, everything was fine and dandy. I hang on the line for a real person. A woman in the Philippines answered. Very pleasant.

“We are so pleased when customers take the trouble to report this kind of activity. This is phishing. (funny name for fraud). Please forward it to:

abuseatchase.com”

As I said in the previous post, please share this email with others. I am certain that Chase is far from the only bank that suffers from this kind of thing.
