Four Cyber Capers We’re Not Allowed
to Talk About (But We Do)

In this episode: Stories that almost made it on the show but didn’t because criminals are sorta scary.

We get to hear a lot of crazy stories in our line of work, and the best ones are sometimes a little too newsworthy to make it on our show (because–hush, hush–they never made the news). But then we realized, we could tell those stories so long as you can’t guess who they’re about. So, here you go. Our not-so-secret secret episode. Extra points if you can guess who they’re about and you say nothing.

There’s a news personality who attributes some ill-advised comments to a time-traveling hacker, a rich guy caught doing something naughty on camera, an agitated therapist and some violent drug cartel peeps. Check out these stories and stick around for a Tin Foil Swan about scam triage.
