It's so frustrating to be bothered by these rats disguising themselves as Amazon. If you don't pay very close attention, they will take a whirlwind trip through your bank account, or at the very least, cause nasty critters to set up shop in your computer.
I received an email from "Amazon" yesterday asking me to confirm a sale. Apparently I had purchased a $250 gift card for Jemy Lovato. If that name sounds familiar, it's really Demi Lovato, a singer, songwriter and actress. She played on the kids show Barney and Friends, so I'm not sure that qualifies as ACTRESS. I'm also not sure if the rats just can't spell or what.
Anyway, it asked me to confirm the purchase before the card was sent out. It also said that in "some emergency cases" the card could be cancelled instantly if this was a fraudulent purchase. DO NOT .... I repeat DO NOT click on anything. Close the email and delete it.
Funny thing, when I looked closely, the date of purchase was in August 2018. Why did they wait so long to contact me? That was a big red flag.
Almost immediately I received ANOTHER email from Amazon notifying me that my credit card purchase had been rejected and they needed clarification so my purchase would not be delayed. It happens that I had just ordered two items from Amazon.
Here's the thing dummy scammers .... when you click the ORDER button, if your credit card is not accepted, it immediately tells you to enter another card number. Your order will never even be placed if the card is not verified immediately. So you send an email to tell me it didn't go through? I think not you stinking creepy examples of humans, trying to steal other people's hard earned money!!
So beware my friends .. there should be no confirming Amazon Confirmations, or verifying credit card numbers from an email .... EVER!! Always be wary!!
Here's my thought for the day. It pretty much describes my daily existence to a tee. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be an adult, let alone an OLD adult!!! I guess I'm there.
I've tried a couple more challenging recipes, at least one with good results. So good I ate it with a spoon, which is code for it was sugary sweet. You know, craving foods I know I shouldn't eat. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
Hmmm I wonder how I got that big bruise on my arm??
