Hillary Send Me an Email (419)

This came across my Google spam folder this morning. Normally I flush crap like this without bothering to read it, but it was a slow morning and the email's announcing it was allegedly from the U.S. Secretary of State piqued my interest.

Office Of The U.S. Secretary Of State
Committee On Foreign Payment
Resolution Panel On Payment
Washington Dc

Attention: Beneficiary

I wish to use this medium and my office to inform you that your CONTRACT/INHERITANCE Payment of USD10,500,000.00 only from CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA has been RELEASED and APPROVED for onward transfer to you via ATM CARD which you will use in withdrawing your funds in any ATM SERVICE MACHINE in any part of the world, but the maximum you can withdraw in a day is USD$10,000 Only.

The United States government has mandated the CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA, to send you the ATM CARD and PIN NUMBER. Therefore You are advised to contact the Head of ATM CARD Department of the CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA for further instructions on how to dispatch your ATM CARD to you.


NOTE: Tell REV FR MARTINS UZOR that you received a message from OFFICE OF THE U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE to send you the ATM CARD and PIN NUMBER you will use in withdrawing your funds. Please make sure you send him your direct phone number and contact address where you want him to send the ATM CARD and PIN NUMBER. [THE SCAM] Note that you will have to take care of the shipment charges for the delivery of your Atm card to your address which will cost you ONLY DELIVERY FEE according to what he told us when i asked him about the charges. Most importantly, i will like you to understand that the charges cannot be deducted from your fund because it had been endorsed by Nigerian and American government. SO do not expect them or even ask them to conduct any kind of deduction. [THE SCAM]

I am very sorry for the delay you have gone through in the past years. This office was obliged to intervene in this matter after receiving a notice from the logistics department of the CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA regarding the irregularities on the release of your funds to you.
Thanks for adhering strictly to these instruction and once again accept my congratulations.

Best Regards,

Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton
U.S. Secretary Of State

Amazing, isn't it, that ├╝ber-busy Secretary Clinton would reach out to me in such a personal manner with such good news. Maybe I'll donate some of this windfall to Obama's Re-election Campaign. Now, I just need to pay for those pesky shipment charges...



Yes, I know the difference between "send" and "sent". It's a very subtle inside joke which many of you obviously Failed To Get.

A Decade Long Religious Con Job

I rarely write inflammatory (what some might call trolling) titles to a post, but this building you see before you deserves it. I've been seeing this building next to I-4 just east of Altamonte/436 and Crane's Roost for nearly 12 years, and never knew who owned it. Today on a trip up to Lake Mary with my wife I saw it yet again. That's when I told her I wanted to stop by on the way back and poke around the property, and photograph any parts of it if I could.

What I discovered was this still unfinished eighteen story (I counted) white elephant, overgrown with weeds and yet still under slow-motion construction. It looks impressive with its exterior glass curtain walls, but that impression is quickly lost when you see the unfinished lower stories and look inside to the unfinished interior spaces.

A quick check via Google leads to an article written in 2010 by the Orlando Sentinel about the Majesty Tower. Based on what I read in the article it's owned by SuperChannel 55 WA…

Be Careful of Capital One Mailings

Capitol One ("What's in your wallet?") sent me a bit of deceptive snail mail today. I felt sure it was a credit card offer, and sure enough, it was. I open all credit card offers and shred them before putting them in the trash. Normally I just scan the front to make sure I don't miss anything; the Capital One offer made me stop for a moment and strike a bit of fear into my heart.

The letter's opening sentence read:
Our records as of December 30, 2009 indicate your Capital One Platinum MasterCard offer is currently valid and active.Not paying close attention during the first reading, I quickly developed this irrational worry that I was actually on the hook for something important, but I wasn't quite sure what. The letter listed "three ways to reply" at the bottom; via phone, the internet, and regular snail mail. I elected to call.

Once I reached the automated phone response system, the first entry offered was '1', to "activate my Capital …

cat-in-a-box channels greta garbo

So I'm sitting at my computer, when I start to notice a racket in back. I ignore it for a while until I hear a load "thump!", as if something had been dropped on the floor, followed by a lot of loud rattling. I turn around and see Lucy in the box just having a grand old time, rolling around and rattling that box a good one. I grab the GX1 and snap a few shots before she notices me and the camera, then leaps out and back into her chair (which used to be my chair before she decided it was her chair).

Just like caring for Katie my black Lab taught me about dogs, caring for Lucy is teaching me about cats. She finds me fascinating, as I do her. And she expresses great affection and love toward me without coaxing. I try to return the affection and love, but she is a cat, and she takes a bat at me on occasion, although I think that's just her being playful. She always has her claws in when she does that.

She sits next to me during the evening in her chair while I sit in mi…
