A series of unfortunate events...

With the pathos and bathos that scammers churn out to elicit your sympathy and 'aw gee, puir wee creature' response, I'm surprised there is a violin player in the world out of work ~ there have to be lots of positions for them to be playing the accompanying theme, 'O Woe Is Me'.

The line, 'Help me, ObiWan Kenobi, you're my only hope' also springs to mind.

So How Come?

My photo
I have two blogs at the moment - Here Be Dragons which is devoted to rental scams primarily sourced through Craigslist although the proliferation of free ad sites has widened the hunting grounds. Many additions come from other sources (ie: blogs/anti-scam sites/online community ad sites) or are provided by people who want to share their experiences. There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch is for copies of scammail that I find in my mailboxes ~ sometimes I can't resist the odd acerbic comment but for the most part I post 'em because the more that people do, the fewer fools they get to gull. Dunno what to say about me that would be very interesting ~ I'm a granny who reads, gardens and crafts as the mood strikes me. :) I don't particularly care for the social predators on this planet and this blog is part of my way of saying so.
