BGS MEETING — April 25, 2015 — The Evil Email Empire

General Meeting for April: The Birmingham Genealogical Society will meet at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 25th on the fourth floor of the Birmingham Public Library (in the Arrington Auditorium). The Board of Directors will meet at 1:00 p.m. in the same room. 

Please join us as BGS member Jim Anderson presents “The Evil Email Empire, or who’s trying to trick me now?” Although not a statistic, it appears that many folks interested in genealogy could be classified as “seniors” and it is this group that evil people have targeted with numerous schemes to get us to open a scam email. “Phishing”, “spoofing” and “hacking” were not part of the general vocabulary until the Internet matured.  What these terms really mean is the subject of Jim’s topic.  He will show examples, and give his views on what you can do to better protect yourself from this evil empire.
