Sorry -- It Wasn't Me

Based on all the NDR's received in the last hour, it's apparently my turn to have an email address spoofed and used to send out crap spam.

Sorry -- it was neither me nor my machine.

Looks like the one example below came through:

1) An open MTA relay in Barcelona, Spain (84.77.221.194)

2) Via a what was claimed to be a Saudi Arabian registered domain (odcqcngjocqxmidqclbfogqwi [DOT] twarn [DOT] com/sendmail [DOT] php)

3) Which may or may not be hosted out of Haarlem, Netherlands via 94.75.242.21

But the subdomain does not resolve, so the parent domain was probably spoofed as well. Not that it matters anyway as whoever is sending out this crap is probably using some automated script and long list of open email relays all over the world.

Good times. . .

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

@christoperj:

Now that it's all be settled, can we now finally focus on the work that needs to be done? The benefit of the two party system is that the best ideas from both sides can be brought to the table of any conversation to solve the deep challenges we face.

Enough with the partisan rhetoric. It's time for everybody to stop worrying about keeping their jobs, and start doing them.

(And seriously, if you were one of the majority of the US population who didn't bother to cast your vote -- you willingly gave up your rights to complain about anything political for the next four years.)

@christoperj:

Ah Texas. Sure we have a vocal community who still deeply question if President Obama was born in the US, but we seem to have no problem electing a confirmed Canadian to the US Congress. Very intriguing. . .

@christoperj:

No matter what direction your political beliefs happen to lean -- If you choose not to vote today, you absolutely give up your right to complain about whatever happens on your Facebook page for next four years. . .

Sunday, November 4, 2012

@christoperj:

Huh. Was just called an a$$hole and further told to "piss off then" by somebody with a wide variety of Christian statements in their Facebook profile -- all because I posted my generic complaint when they spammed me to their Facebook group without asking.

While I don't consider myself a religious person, that just doesn't seem right to me.

What I posted:
[NAME] -- I did not request to be added to your "[FACEBOOK GROUP NAME]" group and you did not give me common courtesy of first asking me if I wanted to join. While this might be 'officially' legal under Facebook rules (and you're certainly not the first one to do it) -- the real world calls this 'Spamming'.

Much like if I were to sign your email address up to 100 bulk email services. It would be spam because you didn't authorize it. Not to mention, it would damned rude for me to do so. Your actions are no different.

Please do not add people to groups unless you ask them. Particularly if you want them to ever care about whatever message/business you are advertising.

Visa "Lost/Stolen" Response Team Fully Admits I'm Not the Owner of the Credit Card I Found, Then Refuses to Cancel It Because I'm Not the Owner of the Credit Card I Found

Found somebody else's credit card left on a ping pong table at Walmart today.  Called the "emergency" Visa number (1-800-VISA-911) on the back to give them a heads up that the card was clearly lost.

Only to be told that they cannot cancel the card because I couldn't verify account information.  Sure I could confirm the 16 digit number, the name on the card, the secret security number on the back -- and I specificly said 4 times that I was NOT the card holder.

But that apparently is not enough to convince the Visa "Emergency" Team that the card is lost and should be immediately canceled.

Not the response I was expecting to hear.

This was the fourth call I made to report finding this card. Being issued by a local Credit Union, they didn't seem to have any real after hours support. All their other numbers on the back of the card all said "Our offices are closed, heres when we're open again".

But when I eventually found their after hours 'lost stolen' card phone number info -- the person on the other end of that number quickly killed the card and thanked me for my honesty. Took all of 5 minutes once I found a contact number for somebody who gave a damn.

Still not sure why Visa Worldwide couldn't wouldn't do the same. Of the many prompts at the end of their Visa "Emergency" number (again, printed on the back of the card), was "If you would like to report a Lost/Stolen Credit Card, press" whatever number. It was, so I did.

Fifteen minutes of back and forth -- all I got was the same answer. "You can't validate personal information on the account, so we can not cancel the card you found "

I get why they couldnt just kill a random card number without validating the authenticity of the call. But if I have all the security information on the card -- numbers, names, security codes -- and I'm clearly not the authorized card holder. . .

. . .Well, hell, shouldn't that be a sign that the card meets the criteria of 'lost and/or stolen'?

I asked the question four times total to make sure I was understanding that they were unwilling to cancel the card even though I obviously had the card and was not the card holder -- and the Visa operator stood by her "No" answer each time.

All the Visa operator was willing to do was to give me the contact information of the issuing bank and told me I could contact them directly (which was already on the back of the card, and was currently closed). And that I was free to cut the card up tonight.

Good advice and I was planning to do both. But if the card is already reported to be lost (and possibly stolen), waiting an extra 12 hours to officially kill the card seems like a pointless risk to take for everybody who has skin in the game. I know I'm not going to go on a spending spree with somebody else's account. They don't though. And who the crap knows if somebody stole the card, tried to use it, and then dumped/dropped it.

Still trying to wrap my mind that the Visa team chose such a cavalier approach to this. Really felt like they didnt give a crap that their customer's card was in the wild -- nor did they want to want to protect their customer from possible fraud.

And I got no answer for that unfortunate reality at all.

Urgent! All my contacts! Highest importance!

People you do not know are trying to take advantage of your innocent gullibility! Many many messages are being posted about new facebook functionality, viruses, charities, political stances, health/safety concerns, missing people, celebrity deaths and much much more. Its scary "oh crap I better run and save the kiddos and hide underneath the staircase" kind of stuff.

Also oh so NOT true!

The people who are sending this stuff out DO NOT care about YOU. They want you to blindly forward the fake warning to all your friends without spending the 5secs+/- verifying the claim in the Google. They sit back and laugh at their work. You look like a fool. And you don't want to look like a fool, DO YOU? Of course not.

So if you get one of these scary posts -- check it. And check it again. PAY ATTENTION! If it's not true, just delete it and you'll be safe from the mocking. Eezy pezzy stuff. Dont let them win!

Many thanx for your help. Paste this on your wall so all your friends won't be made fools of either. That is, unless you want to be able to mock your friends too. . .

Why Do So Many Non-US Facebook Contacts Have Strong Opinions about this Election?

Following up on Tuesday's observation about so many international Facebook contacts (re)posting political memes, I picked out three of the most vocal of the moment and privately asked why they had such an interest.

All three have now un-friended me, and one decided to take it further and also pushed the block button.

Really wasn't expecting that. I'm used to being 'un-friended' when I explain my own political opinion, that's just part of the unfortunate current political theatre of anger and wedge issues. But I've never seen this when I ask somebody else about their opinion.

All of the inquiries were basically the same. This was the one I sent to the third contact in this list. He was posting 10-15 political memes a day in favor of the RNC candidates and ideals. . .
Benito,

I cant help but notice you are taking such an interest in US politics, even though you're in Sydney.

This intrigues me. Please do not misunderstand, I am not trying to be rude, but rather, finding out what drives people to do one thing or another is fascinating to me. Particularly in this matter as Australian politics do not draw the same level of attention from US based citizens. I have in fact noticed quite a few of my FB contacts exerting strong political opinions on the US election (for both parties) despite not having any apparent stake in the result.

Do you mind if I ask you why you have both such a distinct interest and strong opinion towards the RNC candidate?

Feel free to politely decline if you wish. I ask only out of curiosity and I will not disclose your feedback to anybody except for maybe my wife if she's looking over my shoulder.

Christopher

He could have just said go away. But he didn't. He was the one who blocked me instead. Apparently he thought it was warranted. I disagree with that.

But my question remains the same. If you're not in the US, but have a distinct stance on the US election, I'd be curious to understand the reasons why that would be. Feel free to send me a direct message.

To be clear, I am not looking to debate talking points or the rhetoric from either political party. Only want to understand why so many of those who have no vote in the US election are taking such a polarized stance in it.

And of course your feedback will remain private.

Am I Doing Better Four Years Later?

In all honesty -- yes, I am doing better today than I was 4 years ago. And I am doing better 4 years into the current administration than I was 4 years into the last.

There are a plethora of reasons for both observations. Only some (and definitely not all) the direct result of political directions of either particular moment.

But if that's the "benchmark" question to asked in the here and now -- well that's the reality for me.

@christoperj:

With 2004 so deeply focused on the politics of fear, 2008 the politics of hope, and now 2012 being the politics of anger -- I wonder what will be left for 2016. . .

The most surprising thing to me about Clint Eastwood's speech at the RNC last night wasn't the content and delivery -- but rather that just last February he was being almost universally vilified by republican pundits about a Super Bowl car commercial which was being wrongly perceived to be an overtly "Democratic" political ad.

If these same pundits can come together to get past the political theatre of distraction and agree that reality is indeed just reality -- why can't we has a society do the same on issues that matter?

Need to Pay Attention More

Noticed tonight that there are no stop signs on my neighborhood side streets. Wonder if they've been stolen over the years or if they were never there. Either way, I clearly need to pay attention more. . .

No, USPS Did Not Fail to Deliver a Package This Week

Started receiving alerts claiming to be from the USPS concerning a package that could not be delivered.

This is a new take on an old trick, and a 'low-budget' one at that. Whatever the case, this email is also very much malicious. My fully patched Windows 7 sandbox was quickly popped by the bug without any effort. It also did not seem to matter that the user-id was had only limited user privileges and I received no UAC approval window when it was triggered. Very disturbing.

There's no visible text in the email when displayed as HTML. But there is hidden text in the background that is probably intended to make the message appear legitimate to spam filters. The text itself appears to be pulled from 3 novels which have long since found their way into the public domain:

From "Artemus Ward (his travels) among the Mormons, Part 1" by John Camden Hotten (originally published in 1865)
. . .Sometimes they introduce a full brass and string band in Church. Brigham Young says the devil has monopolized the good music long enough, and it is high time the Lord had a portion of it. . .

From "A Fleece of Gold: Five Lessons from the Fable of Jason and Golden Fleece" by Charles Steward Given (originally published in 1905)
. . .Galen, the famous anatomist, after a prolonged study of the human hand, conceiving it to be the proximate instrument of the soul, was forced to renounce atheism, to acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being. . .

From "The Entire PG Works by George Meredith, Volume 1 of 10" by George Meredith (originally published in 1851)
. . .Richard mechanically sat down on the crumbling flints to rest, and listened to the panting of the dog. Sprinkled at his feet were emerald lights: hundreds of glow- worms studded the dark dry ground. . .

I wonder how the original email author came upon these three distinctly different novels as even in an internet connected world, it seems unlikely that these are just the result of a "What novels should I quote to bypass spam filters?" Google search

That said, the user only sees a low quality jpg image (pulled from http://bdedieu [DOT] perso [DOT] neuf [DOT] fr/HIDVRTXUKI [DOT] jpg) when they open the message claiming that USPS failed to deliver a package. . .
USPS.COM
Unfortunately, we failed to deliver the postal package you have sent on the 27th of august in time, because the recipient's address is erroneous.

Please go to the nearest UPS office and show your shipping label.

If the parcel isn't received within 30 working days our company will have the right claim compensation from you for each day of keeping.

Not sure why I would be taking a USPS/United States Postal Service receipt to a UPS/United Parcel Service office, but whatever.

Clicking on the image sends the user to http://bdedieu [DOT] perso [DOT] neuf [DOT] fr/XREOWCDHOS [DOT] htm, which has only a very simple javascript within commanding the browser to download a file named Label_Copy_USPS [DOT] zip. . .

The zip file itself contains a malicious file named Label_Copy_USPS [DOT] exe, with an embeded icon that makes it look like a MSWord document to the untrained eye.

Opened the file in the sandbox and confirmed it's malicious nature.

It appears to execute, but doesn't display anything but an empty document in notepad named "Label_Copy_USPS". Not sure if that's just for appearance, or if it's exploiting something in notepad on my fully patched sandbox machine.
Just an empty notepad document
Just an empty notepad document

The Label_Copy_USPS.exe file with the MSWord icon has also been replaced with an empty text file named Label_Copy_USPS.txt.

After that, nothing else. At least for a few minutes.

Then I get a popup for something called Security Monitor claiming:
Security Monitor: WARNING!

Attention! System detected a potential hazard (TrojanSPM/LX) on your computer
that may infect executable files. Your private information and PC Safety
is at risk.
To get rid of unwanted spyware and keep your computer safe you need to update your computer security software.

Followed by an ominous systemtray flag. . .
WARNING!
Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected.

Please activate your antivirus software.
Bogus Infected File Flag
Bogus Infected File Flag

And then conveniently a scan from Live Security Platinum (one of the Fake Antivirus variants) which I of course didn't knowingly install. . .
Live Security Platinum (one of the Fake Antivirus variants)
Live Security Platinum (one of the Fake Antivirus variants)

I've seen these before, and it always amuses me how it claims certain applications are infected on machine (even though they are not actually installed)

But whatever the case, it throws the expected "Your machine is infected with many malicious bugs, It is highly recommended that you remove all the threats from your computer immediately" message.
Bogus Infected Machine Warning
Bogus Infected Machine Warning

And of course clicking on the button takes the user to an online website asking for a credit card number.

Basically anything that I did on the machine from this point on triggered an alert claiming that whatever application I was trying to open was infected, right after the process was terminated for my 'safety'

But that's not all that's going on. . .

Behind the scenes, this all starts with a HTTP connection on TCP84 to a Netherlands IP (93.184.100.116) and pulled down another malicious exe file named 3b0c6a8305cc89cf77f3c9616a569e78 [DOT] exe. . .

There are no ravishingly beautiful women present, and no positively ugly ones.The men are fair to middling. They will never be slain in cold blood for their beauty, nor shut up in jail for their homeliness. There are some good voices in the choir to-day, but the orchestral accompaniment is unusually slight. Sometimes they introduce a full brass and string band in Church. Brigham Young says the devil has monopolized the good music long enough, and it is high time the Lord had a portion of it. Therefore trombones are tooted on Sundays in Utah as well as on other days; and there are some splendid musicians there. The Orchestra in Brigham Youngs theatre is quite equal to any in Broadway. There is a youth in Salt Lake City (I forget his name) who plays the cornet like a North American angel. Mr. Stenhouse relieves me of any anxiety I had felt in regard to having my swan-like throat cut by the Danites, but thinks my wholesale denunciation of a people I h!
ad never seen was rather hasty.


And the plaudits of men and of angels attend the young man today who has a worthy object in view, who believes in himself, and bends to the oars with might and main.An active hand symbolizes usefulness and thrift. Has it ever occurred to you what a wonderful piece of mechanism is that hand with which Nature has equipped you for seizing the oars of lifes activities? Galen, the famous anatomist, after a prolonged study of the human hand, conceiving it to be the proximate instrument of the soul, was forced to renounce atheism, to acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being. Scientists regard the human hand as being the most remarkable organ, not vital, in the whole animal kingdom. It is conceded to be, also, the most pronounced physical characteristic differentiating man from the lower animals. The chimpanzee and the gorilla, closely allied to the human species in many respects, are noticeably deficient in the use of their modified hands; being able to grasp things only in a c!
umbersome way.

Tongue out of mouth trotted the little dog after him; crouched panting when he stopped an instant; rose weariedly when he started afresh.Now and then a large white night-moth flitted through the dusk of the forest. On a barren corner of the wooded highland looking inland stood grey topless ruins set in nettles and rank grass-blades. Richard mechanically sat down on the crumbling flints to rest, and listened to the panting of the dog. Sprinkled at his feet were emerald lights: hundreds of glow- worms studded the dark dry ground. He sat and eyed them, thinking not at all. His energies were expended in action. He sat as a part of the ruins, and the moon turned his shadow Westward from the South. Overhead, as she declined, long ripples of silver cloud were imperceptibly stealing toward her. They were the van of a tempest. He did not observe them or the leaves beginning to chatter.

No, I Do Not Have a Confirmed Money Transfer from Western Union

Received a new version (well, received several times actually) of the old Western Union Money Transfer scam in the last 48 hours.

This latest derivative comes across as an authentic looking email from "2012, Western Union" thanking me (or more specifically, a random name that isn't actually me) for using the Western Union Money Transfer service. The email goes on to say that a credit of several hundred dollars is ready for me to pickup. All I have to do is to click on a link for the transaction details.

And as a bonus -- I have also earned Western Union Gold Points for the transaction. I like bonuses. I wonder if I can convert them to airline miles?

Regardless -- like all the versions that came before, this latest incarnation is clearly fake and appears to have been sent with malicious intent.

All of the emails appear to be an attempt to trick the reader into clicking on a variety of non-Western Union links peppered throughout the messages.

None of the links I found in the messages I received were working when I tested.

These links threw an immediate 404 --

Weirdly, this single link threw an authentication challenge from www [DOT] pictoo [DOT] de:80 --

These links attempted to redirect to http:// 69.163.40.128 /pxyk80ujzb03h [DOT] php?y=p7tqagmzf8qdjqpi (which also threw a dead 404 error from a nginx v0.7.67 server) --

But during the redirect, it threw a "WAIT PLEASE Loading. . ." message in a format I've seen previously used to send the visitor to a website serving automated exploits back to the visiting user's machine.
WAIT PLEASE Loading. . .

It's possible these 5 specific links might be working at a later time with just a simple DNS update pointing the redirect to another live host.

Good times

Anybody who doesn't think we need healthcare reform has never ever gotten an obnoxiously large bill from a provider for Doctor recommended tests, only to find that this very same provider gave the insurance company an astonishing 86.5% discount on the items they agreed to reimburse -- while instead choosing to come after me for the full amount of what the insurance refused to cover.

Clearly somebody at this provider mistakenly thinks I have deeper pockets than my insurance company.

@securityguy23:

Rebuilding my lab box after some hardware decided to unexpectedly go all funky chicken over the weekend without the required change control approvals. . .

Seven Years Ago

On a morning not that much unlike this one, and at about this time, I woke up at a friend's apartment after we had spent the night before celebrating my birthday over a few drinks at the Dave and Buster's bar.

My inner weather nerd had been keeping up with a strong though somewhat average hurricane with an exotic sounding name that had moved into gulf in the days before. I usually do not remember storm names unless they leave an impression for whatever reason. Alicia in '83 because it made an afternoon at the YMCA day care a little more fun. Andrew in '92 because of the devastation as it crossed Florida. Kyle in '02 because it was the energizer rabbit of storms just meandering about the atlantic for about a month. And some others.

This latest storm didn't really seem all that remarkable, however. It had already smacked Florida around when it came through, if only a little when compared to others in the last year or so. But it admittedly did seem like it was going to be worse by the time it came ashore again. Hard to tell for sure as there had been so many storms in the couple of years prior, and the resulting pre-landfall hype had largely become white noise amongst the 24 hour news cycle.

Anyways, so on that morning still not that much unlike this one, I sat down at the table and went out to the internet looking for the latest storm update. Really wasn't expecting to see what had been this strong though somewhat average hurricane with the exotic sounding name had doubled in size with winds that had also jumped from only a 'meager' 115 to an 'oh crap oh crap oh crap' 175 miles an hour.

Deeply scary on paper in all the stats. Even scarier in the satellite photos.

I remember one of the signs of Andrew's strength when it pulverized Florida was how it had wound itself into nearly a tight perfect circle of storm clouds and wind. And how it's eye in the center was almost completely clear. It left a lasting visual impression of what a hurricane not to be messed with looks like.

This latest storm, looked just the same -- except it was three times larger. It had clearly become the worst case scenario and was only 36 hours offshore.

The National Hurricane Center website posted a banner on their website saying "THIS STORM WILL KILL YOU" (or something to that effect) in big bold capitalized red letters as it tried press the criciality of what was about to happen to anybody who needed to know. And they followed it up with an equally as graphic bulletin:

URGENT — WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW ORLEANS LA
1011 AM CDT SUN AUG 28, 2005

...DEVASTATING DAMAGE EXPECTED...

.HURRICANE KATRINA... A MOST POWERFUL HURRICANE WITH UNPRECEDENTED STRENGTH... RIVALING THE INTENSITY OF HURRICANE CAMILLE OF 1969.

MOST OF THE AREA WILL BE UNINHABITABLE FOR WEEKS... PERHAPS LONGER. AT LEAST ONE HALF OF WELL CONSTRUCTED HOMES WILL HAVE ROOF AND WALL FAILURE. ALL GABLED ROOFS WILL FAIL... LEAVING THOSE HOMES SEVERELY DAMAGED OR DESTROYED.

THE MAJORITY OF INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS WILL BECOME NON FUNCTIONAL. PARTIAL TO COMPLETE WALL AND ROOF FAILURE IS EXPECTED. ALL WOOD FRAMED LOW RISING APARTMENT BUILDINGS WILL BE DESTROYED. CONCRETE BLOCK LOW RISE APARTMENTS WILL SUSTAIN MAJOR DAMAGE... INCLUDING SOME WALL AND ROOF FAILURE.

HIGH RISE OFFICE AND APARTMENT BUILDINGS WILL SWAY DANGEROUSLY... A FEW TO THE POINT OF TOTAL COLLAPSE. ALL WINDOWS WILL BLOW OUT.

AIRBORNE DEBRIS WILL BE WIDESPREAD... AND MAY INCLUDE HEAVY ITEMS SUCH AS HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES AND EVEN LIGHT VEHICLES. SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES AND LIGHT TRUCKS WILL BE MOVED. THE BLOWN DEBRIS WILL CREATE ADDITIONAL DESTRUCTION. PERSONS... PETS... AND LIVESTOCK EXPOSED TO THE WINDS WILL FACE CERTAIN DEATH IF STRUCK.

POWER OUTAGES WILL LAST FOR WEEKS... AS MOST POWER POLES WILL BE DOWN AND TRANSFORMERS DESTROYED. WATER SHORTAGES WILL MAKE HUMAN SUFFERING INCREDIBLE BY MODERN STANDARDS.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF NATIVE TREES WILL BE SNAPPED OR UPROOTED. ONLY THE HEARTIEST WILL REMAIN STANDING...BUT BE TOTALLY DEFOLIATED. FEW CROPS WILL REMAIN. LIVESTOCK LEFT EXPOSED TO THE WINDS WILL BE KILLED.

AN INLAND HURRICANE WIND WARNING IS ISSUED WHEN SUSTAINED WINDS NEAR HURRICANE FORCE... OR FREQUENT GUSTS AT OR ABOVE HURRICANE FORCE... ARE CERTAIN WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS.

ONCE TROPICAL STORM AND HURRICANE FORCE WINDS ONSET... DO NOT VENTURE OUTSIDE!

I have never read or heard such an apocalyptic alert issued in a real world situation and hope I never do again.

While Katrina made a disturbingly memorable name for herself, she thankfully lost some strength in the day or so before making it's final landfall. It could have been much much MUCH worse had the storm of this day come ashore at that moment. And when a strong hurricane Rita came ashore about a month later, everybody who cared paid attention and reacted accordingly.

Seven years later, I find myself again catering to my inner weather nerd and checking on another storm with a somewhat exotic sounding name heading towards New Orleans. I'm relieved to see this latest one seems to be mimicking it's sister only by route and schedule -- if (probably) not by strength. Although there is still time on the clock for the unforeseen to happen.

But what a weird weird irony that this is all eerily unfolding again, seven years to the day when the last one came through.

Feeling good after a 28 mile bike ride from the Fort down to Lake Dallas and back.

And to the lady driving the dark green SUV that I crossed paths with at the Denton Katy Trail and Lakeview Blvd around 10am -- I am sorry for startling you.

I recognize you had no way to tell I was slowing down to a stop because of the angle and the trees, and you felt the need to slam on your brakes thinking I was about to fly into the road.

Tried to apologize by waving, then yielding so you could go first, and (after 90 seconds of waiting) riding beside you say it face to face.

You instead chose to respond by telling me to "go" with aggressive hands/arm moments, then slamming them down onto your steering wheel before waving them around even more aggressively, and then tearing off without even looking at me even though I was a foot away from your window.

Clearly we had an unfortunate communication disconnect. And I admit I probably would have responded much much differently than you if it was me behind your wheel -- particularly since you also had a young (probably) impressionable kiddo strapped into their backseat car-seat watching your behavior far more than mine.

But whatever the case, I'm sorry for startling you.

Yep, There's My Problem. Now Who the Crap Did It? (Update4)

Apparently the cause of my FiOS Outage last week was that an (as of yet) unknown utility dug a quick hole in the easement, clipped my fibre line, and tried to cover it up. Don't know who it was - but I'm working on it.

Four days after the outage, a mysterious brown patch of grass has turned up. Somebody clearly dug here. But law be damned, whoever did it didnt call 811 to have the utilities marked ahead of time (event hough this is clearly an easement). And nobody knocked on the door to let me know what was done.

Pull off the top of grass, and winner winner chicken dinner -- a cut FiOS line. The orange flag was buried with the line itself.

No flags and the grass was replaced exactly where it was. Somebody clearly dug the hole, realized they clipped the wire, and then tried to cover it up without marking it.

The next house down had a similar shallow hole. Nothing was in it, but it was at least marked with a generic orange flag.

And the next house down from my neighbor, had yet a third shallow hole marked with the generic orange flag. This hole was about a foot away from a charged DME ground transformer.

This hole had what looks like a new copper pole in it, pushed at a slight angle towards the DME transformer. The plastic push/safety cap was not worn and had zero signs that it was damaged by the shovel (even though it clearly would have been clipped had it already been there before the new hole was dug)

Update 12:30PM:
Spoke to a very helpful Denton Municipal Electric customer service who was able to confirm no tickets were in their system for any digging or utility marking in front of my house last week.

They were, however, able to tell me that Verizon has submitted a ticket on Monday to mark utilities for work they plan to do tomorrow. Initially thought this was for the burying of the replacement fibre line. But DME doublechecked and found it to 'bury an 8 foot grounding pole' for reasons Verizon did not provide. This sounds like what I found in the third hole 2 houses down. DME had no ticket for the neighbor's house, and nothing else in general for my neighborhood last week.

DME also was able to explain that the utility marking colors are industry type specific. Orange flags mean it was somebody in telecommunications. Charter Cable is in the easement too, but based on the 'grounding pole' ticket, it sounds like Verizon is the likely suspect.

Ticket opened up with Verizon Support and waiting on call back from their local 'construction team'. They also updated my account to show the damage did not appear to my fault as so I should not be charged for clipping my own line.

Update2 3:00PM:
Had a very pleasant conversation with the local Verizon Construction Team. They said the work tomorrow was to bury the temp fibre line from Friday's outage. He did not know what DME was referring to with their 'grounding pole' comments based on what he saw in the Verizon ticket.

I gave him the background of the situation and showed him the photos of the mystery construction. He agreed that the pole looked like a "grounding pole". But couldn't tell who did it, or why it was done as both Verizon and Charter boxes in the photos already have grounding poles in them. Also agreed that whoever did it was lucky they didn't electrocute themselves by hitting a charged DME power line with their new (and very conductive) copper pole being pushed underneath DME's ground transformer.

He double-checked his system and confirmed that nothing was in it that would cover this work. Said that sometimes the contractors screw up, though. Couldn't tell who it was, or if they were there for Verizon, Charter, or whoever as the flags could have been mislaid. But as no utilities were marked, nothing should have been dug.

He also confirmed (thankfully) that I would not be charged for the new fibre since this was clearly not my fault.

Charter Communications is the only other one in the easement I haven't called about this yet. Not sure if I want the extra frustration of talking to their team about this. Still trying to excise those demons from when they kept running me through two week outages -- while trying to say it was a problem with my (then only) three year old home wiring.

Seems like far more trouble than it's worth to go down that rabbit hole.

Update3 July 23 4:45PM:
No progress. So much for coming out last week to rebury the replaced FiOS line.

So far, only Atmos Energy has even been out to mark their utilities. Nothing from Charter. Oddly, nothing from from DME or Verizon either, even though they both told me they were going to be done by last Wednesday in their respective phone calls.

Update4 July 30 3:45PM:
Housley Communications (local Verizon Contractor) came out in the heat and just finished burring the new line. Friendly team and they did a solid job with minimal impact to anything in the yard. Impressive on its own. Major bonus points given that they took an hour to get it done right did it all in 105 degrees and 45% humidity.

Still have no clue who originally cut the line in the first place. Moved on to more important stuff in the days since.

No, I Do Not Want Your Money Making Scam (Or the Daily Bonus You Claim I Have Earned)

About twice a day (for a while now), I'm receiving emails claiming that I have a "gift waiting" or a "friend of mine just told me about this", or "product download delivery" or something in between. All are in basically the same cheap looking format and usually include at least one (but sometimes several) link(s) labeled as some sort of "Bonus".

All of these emails are clearly fake and appear to be just annoying spam selling a variety of get rich quick marketing schemes.

The emails themselves do not look like anybody tried to make them remotely genuine. They all use only basic text with only some CAPS changes, an occasional bold/underlining, and their choice of font to draw in the reader.

While they also seem to be coming from a variety of source email addresses, there does seem to be (some) similar sender name derivatives:

Weirdly, they are all also tagged at the bottom with what they call a "Material Connection Disclosure" warning readers to basically be careful of the people who are being advertised in the spam message. Good advice.

None of these links appeared to have any malware or virus or whatever. Just crap advertising for the internet equivalent of a MLM scam. Some of the pages did have an annoying popup to "Confirm I wanted to leave the page" when I tried to do just that.
