you a message regarding item #330370543054. Click here to

(Let's consider the fact that I don't sell on EBay so poor
ol' leah is outta luck there or even consider it
astonishing that EBay doesn't know how to spell its name.
When I look on Whois it tells me that the domain is
registered to The Eby Group Inc. and when I google that
I find, 'The Eby Group Inc is headquartered in Olathe, KS.
The Eby Group Inc is operating in the Multimedia & Graphic
Design industry. The email address pattern for The Eby
Group Inc is firstname.lastname@example.org.' And, according to EBay,
leahpfeiffer is not a registered user.)

(So call me sceptical but somehow I don't think Paypal
routes its mail through AOL. When I look up email@example.com
on Whois I find the website title is 'Terra. Noticias en
espanol, ocio y contenidos multimedia.' I do use Paypal
on occasion and I can guarantee I have never dealt with AOL
or notices in Spanish. Yeah ~ like I'll click on this

So How Come?

- 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.
