By the time the Feds figure out a fraudulent angle on the 'affordable healthcare act', they'll have bilked millions (hundreds of millions), and have moved on to a new scam angle to start all over again.

All the others are small potatoes in comparison. IRS, Medicare/aid, SS, disability, welfare, etc....

Everything has to be political these days, doesn't it?

New Scam-BEWARE

Let me tell you, that Nigerian Prince has a serious, and legitimate need. We're talking about tens of thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands of loyal subjects who are in danger of being de-citizened in the event this Prince doesn't secure some serious naira.

I, for one, am proud to know that I helped this noble man in his time of need, and I'm shocked- shocked I tell you, to see people on this forum disparaging him.



Incidentally, I've just received an email informing me of a large sum of money bequeathed to me by a distant relative in Nigeria.
You see? No good deed goes unpunished, errr... unrewarded.
Once I forward my bank account, routing numbers, SS, DL and DOB.. they'll be "transacting monies to the your persons account, instantaneous."

I also feel for these poor guys! They're MORE than willing to pay you for your effort. I'm disheartened by the hardness of soul of people today. Your grandparents would be so disappointed! Thank you, boondockdad! You are a generous, kind, loving individual! Enjoy your fortune, and all the good karma coming your way!

-Red, compassion personified...

I found a wonderfu lwebsite to help these poor Nigerian people. Look at "419 Eater" on the web, and you can spend hours seeing how other peiole have "helped" these poor people. Some of the best laughs I have had for a long time.

Oh sure, like we're going to click on some unknown, obscure website... We weren't born yesterday! Quit trying to use the Nigerian Prince's need to promote your scam!

Mod's, can't we ban this scammer or something???

-Red, on to your sneaky tricks...

do a google search "credit freeze" and learn more. the credit monitoring sites like lifelock and other are WORTHLESS in most cases and can cost 100 of dollars..

Go to creditkarma.com and do free credit monitoring, plus you can get a copy of your credit report from one, trans union, credit reporting agency.

there are three in total. Equifax, Experian, Trans Union

READ, LEARN, DO...
I have mentioned this before, and it may help relieve stress on some while traveling. Every time we go to NZ for 3 months, we take out VISA money cards, which are the new travelers checks. You just load the card up with up to 5k, and use them just like a credit card. You are never leaving your personal credit card #s as you travel, or purchase online. They can be tracked on line to check your purchases, and you can reload them anytime. They have an account #, an expiration date, and the three digit code on back.
We have regular credit cards, but when I use these, I don't worry about someone gaining access to them.
We get ours from our Credit Union.
Just a thought,
Greg
