A podcast (turns out to be a 2-parter) from Reply All in which Alex Goldman gets a scam phone call about his iCloud account being compromised. He goes pretty far into investigating it, speaking regularly with the people who run these scams.
Especially resonant for me, as someone who also spoke directly with a hacker who’s goal was doing me harm. I’ve long struggled with thinking rationally about stuff like this.
