  • the Wire-Wire fraud

    ‘Researchers learn about wire-fraud scam after Nigerian scammers infect themselves with their own malware.’

    The researchers observed Wire-Wire scores of $5,000 to $250,000 with the average between $30,000-$50,000 from small- and medium-sized businesses. The scammers themselves were “well-respected and admired” in their communities.
    I’ve heard about this scam — it’s nasty, and worst of all, banks won’t reimburse the losses.

  • Showing bottle: one man’s vision crafted a revolution

    A eulogy for Oliver Hughes, founder of the Porterhouse and Dingle Distillery, and arguably the progenitor of Ireland’s craft beer scene. I had the pleasure of sharing a table with him at a beer tasting in Sweeney’s off license a while back, and it was both educational and a good fun night. RIP
