I got an email yesterday from our CBA president John Alexander asking me to get him 12 $100 ITunes gift cards as a surprise for all the board members. In fact some other board members got the same email. So being the dutiful board  member I am, I told them sure I would get them for him. We emailed back and forth throughout the day, confirming it would be done. I told him that I would not get off work till late and would get them afterwards.

This morning he emailed again, asking if I got them and I had. They of course wanted a photo of the front and backs of them. So again being the good board member I am, I sent the photo. 

Tell me if you think I am a good photographer also?

I forgot to ad, like my dad used to say, "you have to be smarter than the hammer".

Ha! the other one is someone who has your address book. You start into a three or four way email list with people in your book. You send them 5 $99 VISA cards and when they get them, you get $10,000 in cash from a FedEx special delivery. This is Covid Federal Grant money because you are over 65.

If we would all do what David just did it would make it hard for them to get to as many people.

This is great! I like leading on the phone scammers, making them think they're about to score only to give them a ridiculous name like Howie Felterbottom, or the extended car warranty scammers, when they ask my cars make and model I give them 1927 Ford model T.

I just tell the warranty scammers the truth ; a 1995 Toyota T100.  The click of their hang-up is almost deafening.

I have a recorded message for these trolls. " You have reached the office of beeping biania, internationally famous vegetable rights activist. Please leave your social security number and credit card info. Your $75.00 toll fee will be applied. Remember carrots scream when they are cut up and boiled."

I sometimes ask them if their mother knows that they are cheating old people out of their savings instead of working for their money.

When on the road, I have a lot of fun until I tell them I'm a Retired Boeing Integrated Project Manager or Senior Business Systems Analyst working with Boeing IT Security to set up International Collaboration Environments. The cutoff of the call is instantaneous.

Praise to Alice for one extended conversation, she kept from laughing out loud to give me away. The caller asked me to go the my computer. I explained I was on an Indian Reservation in Montana 1700 miles away. He thought I was in India and we conversed for another twelve minutes about India and then he hung up. When he hung up, Alice laughed for the next five minutes.
