Airport Security Director Fired After Falling For A Scammer’s Trick, Buying Him Gift Cards

Milwaukee airport’s security manager has been fired after falling for a scam, buying gift cards and sending them to someone in Saudi Arabia posing as her boss. She's the security director and she's not careful dealing with online scammers. That's not a good look, and she was let go for "substandard or careless job performance." However what she ran into is very common and part of a multi-billion dollar scam that I've run into many times over the past three years. Continue reading Airport Securi...

To celebrate, curators at Ghen...
