I am sick-to-death of the scams and cons. The constant vigilence necessary to keep my money, computers, home and self safe is exhausting. No longer can I assume that 'most' people are honest and 'most' situations are safe. More and more of my time every day is spent checking locks, alarms, bank accounts and generally looking over my shoulder.
If all of this is a sign-of-the-times, then the times are very bad.
