  1. What also happens is that some payment instructions do not show up on my screen, but later do turn out to have gone through. In one case, it resulted in two payment instructions being rejected because I repeatedly entered them. And another payment was returned for an invalid reason (“amount too low”) of which the description changed a few days later into some IT gobbledygook.

    Weird things have been going on with some of my payments for years now.

    The powerlessness that results from all the hacking interference is often quite excruciating. Nothing you do or don’t do still makes a difference when you are being hacked to smithereens.


  2. This has remained the case and just a few days ago, once again, two payment instructions had disappeared.

    On the plus side… I may have discovered how the spoofed e-mails that I get – or got – are being generated, sort of.

    A long time ago, when we still in the stone age, so to speak, I tested whether the business website I had at the time, which was huge and had several links from Wikipedia as it served as a resource – which I no longer have – could be abused by spammers – which we still had lots of in those days – that is, whether it could be used to send spam and make it look like it was coming from me. Oh, yes, and I did not even need to know my password. Ouch.

    That is spoofing, people. It’s been around for decades. Remember all that spam coming from reputable companies? That is spoofing.

    This was fixed later. It’s been a long time ago, but I guess I telnetted into my hoster or whatever.
