People say they don't want to live in California because of the earthquakes, but where I live, we rarely ever feel the earth shaking and there has never been any damage. Maybe I should rethink moving to the Oregon Coast, which is going to fall off into the ocean!! Arizona is looking better and better!! They just have snakes.
Speaking of snakes ..... here's part of an email I received urging me to cooperate with the South African Civil Aviation Authority in stealing $45,500,000.00 ... yup, that's forty-five MILLION, of which I will receive 30%, but I have to have discretion, maturity and co-operation.
Honestly folks, they should at least hire someone who speaks, reads and writes good English. It appears they over invoiced (meaning they overcharged) a contract, for which they received payment. That payment has not been claimed?? So they want me to receive the transfer of this money into MY bank account on their behalf. Good grief!! For one, that's called stealing ... not to mention what they would do to MY account once they had the information they are requesting.
WE WRITE THIS LETTER WHICH I PRAY SHOULD BE URGENTLY REPLIED. I GOT YOUR CONTACT DURING MY YEARS OF SERVICE IN THE FOREIGN MINISTRY. I AM MS DAPHNE MOTSEPE, PRESENTLY THE DIRECTOR OF FINANCE /AUDITOR UNDER THE SOUTH AFRICAN CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY HEADQUARTERS, SOUTH REGION OFFICE.

MY SUPERIORS HAS COMPLETED ALL ADMINISTRATIVE STEPS TO SEE THAT THIS FUND RECEIVES ALL THE REQUEST APPROVALS IMMEDIATELY YOU GIVE ME THE GO AHEAD.
Since they are such highly placed officials in the Government, they require absolute discretion. Surprisingly, they included a South African email address. I'd like to accommodate them with an arrest warrant, but I'm sure they are located in Iran, Pakistan or maybe India. I've love to run one of MY scams on them, but my sense of humor evaporated last night when I couldn't sleep, which is why I'm so late this morning!!
I would like to report that my "GOOD MORNING ... KBLX ... YOU'RE ON THE AIR" is working fabulously. I got three hangups yesterday!!
Today I'm working in the yard to try and get it looking somewhat normal again. I called the gardner (he's going to get real tired of me) to replace four sprinklers and repair one that is at such an angle it's shooting straight up into a tree ... not the best way to water the lawn.
At the advice of an old school classmate, I'm going to set up a camera system so I can keep an eye on it myself. You just can't rely on the hired help nowadays!!
