    After Cory Doctorow got scammed it became much clearer that providers need to do better.

    Having customer support going to the lowest bidder makes these situations much more common. And since there are no repercussions there is no reason to make things better sadly.

    Passkeys and authenticators. SMS based 2-auth has had this flaw for years. There should be laws that banks and trading accounts should enforce either passkeys or 2-factor with authenticators. Email and SMS are not secure enough for banking, and until laws enforce better security, this problem will get worse.
