Hey - just a heads up. There are scammers everywhere. I received a text yesterday asking me to shoot a reunion in Orlando. I asked them for their website. The number that texted me was listed on the site, along with 2-3 others. I went to their package offerings, and the link sent me to a completely different site. It did this on each of the packages I had looked at. I then called the number and the call was declined.
I then went to the other site, which looked very legit, and tried to send them a contact message via their site. It wouldn't work. I called them and got voice mail and left a message. Their photography website had been hijacked and they weren't aware of it. The other site was using all of their content.
Yes, everything online is hackable and can be used to scam people! Your example is the tip of a huge problem going on in our society today. We have all this wonderful online technology that makes our lives more convenient and efficient but the downside is it's implemented with technology that is totally insecure. Every day we find out about another once trusted major part of our online infrastructure that has been turned into an online scam.
I'm halfway through the current best selling book Future Crimes by Marc Goodman. The Ted.com video above is a distillation of his book. Marc's message is that our connected technology that is expanding exponentially is NOT as secure as we assume it to be. Little or no consideration has been given to making it secure! The scammers understand this and are taking advantage of it big time.
Real estate photography is an online business that also makes use of this online infrastructure but don't trust any of it! Be skeptical of everything online - there are scammers everywhere!
