Don't bank on it....

I'm tired ~ I have a cold and I'm going back to bed. Be smart ~ if you get *any* kinda mail like this from your bank, Paypal, EBay, whatever...., do not click on the link. If you think you should confirm the veracity of such an email, go directly to the real website and check into it. (Oh yeah: PS ~ I don't have an account with Scotiabank.)

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.
