these scammers will try ANYTHING, won’t they? and a funny d’oh moment story!

I was checking my email and saw that someone sent me a “news story” from the Ny Times. Now since I read this site frequently AND since I know some of my friends do, I figured one of them had sent me something interesting. Imagine my surprise when I opened it to see this:

*le sigh* They will find anyway in the world to get their SHIT out to people won’t they? The sad thing is there are STILL people online that fall for these scams…They just piss me off. They try to take advantage of vulnerable people. Get a fucking real job and stop sending out your fucking spam. Good Lord!!!

I called the NY times online customer service to let them know that someone was using their site to send out their bullshit scams. So hopefully they can figure out something to thwart the scammers.  It’s really sad that they have resorted to going to legitimate websites, what’s next, CNN? Geez.

On another note, I am ALMOST done unpacking and all that jazz. I am heading out shortly to buy some curtains and little things I need for this place. I don’t know how much I will get done tonight because Boo is having her friend stay all night in our new apartment. So I will have two 7 year olds to entertain LMAO, I hope I have hair left by tomorrow morning!! 😉 I have plans to make homemade pizza with them and chocolate chip cookies, so that should keep them happy for at least a little while hahaha.

As soon as I am completely settled, I will write my more serious blogs. OH I just have to tell you something that happened to us yesterday as we were finishing up moving stuff from the old apartment to the new one. *Takes a deep breath, trying not to laugh my ass off again*.

duhWe were over here in the new place, eating lunch before moving the last load over here and there was a HARD knock on my door. My daughter went to answer it and there were 3 (yes THREE) cops at my door. O.O <— That’s how my eyes looked when I saw them. The one cop pushed past Melody and just walked into my apartment O.O , I was just about to ask him “Uh, do you have a search warrant to enter my apartment?”, when he started saying “Who put garbage bags in the dumpster?” O.O <—me again. “Uh, Jon did?”. Ooops let me go back for a second. Jon’s sister-in-law had thrown 2 bags of garbage into the back of Jon’s truck (WHY we don’t know), but he didn’t notice it until they got over here and SMELLED it. She had thrown bags of MEAT from her deep freeze into this truck *GAG*, so he asked me if he could throw them away so he could go wash out the bed of the truck to move the rest of my stuff. Of course I told him “Yes.” Now back to the story–the cop is almost yelling like we are criminals. “What was in the bags?”, Mel says “Meat his stupid sister in law threw into the back of the truck.” The asshole cop “What kind of meat.” O.O <– me again. I said “Uh we didn’t LOOK to see what kind of meat it was, come on!”. “You don’t have authority to dump garbage in the dumpster”, the cop says looking at Jon. I said in a not so nice tone, “UH yes he does, he is with ME, and I fucking live here and he is helping me MOVE.” Unfortunately everyone in the office was out yesterday *le sigh* so no one was around to stop the idiot cops from badgering us. The cop says “Well when they dump the garbage out of the dumpster in the morning you need to get in there and disinfect it.” O.O <–me again, not believing the audacity of this fucking cop. He finally leaves and I stand there stunned for a second, then bust out laughing, because it took THREE car loads of cops to talk to us about a dumpster???? Well then we get the kicker. Someone downstairs said they were taking a piece of the meat to have it checked to make sure it wasn’t human. I was O.O again of course. WTF? You mean they thought I killed someone, cut up the body and had Jon toss it in the dumpster at MY complex in BROAD DAYLIGHT? OMFG, I mean come on. First off that is ridiculous, secondly it’s wasting time and tax payers money and thirdly why the FUCK aren’t the cops out here busting the drug dealers, seeing as where I live is one of the Oxy capitals of the US??? Nooo they have to come here and harrass me about a dumpster, then say they are going to “autopsy” the meat?!?!?! *Sighs and busts out laughing* The manager of the property finally showed up at almost 5:00 and he came up to the apartment to apologize for his fill in not showing up and said we would do the lease today. I told him what happened and he was dumbfounded. He said don’t worry about him putting garbage into the dumpster, since he WAS helping me move. I told him — “I just wanted you to hear what happened out of MY mouth before it went around the complex then got to you and the story would be “V is an axe murderer who tossed a chopped up body in the dumpster, like omgz!!!”. The manager M just laughed and said “I hate drama, I know you do too. Don’t worry you are a good tenant.” PHEW *shakes head* I didn’t know we had the keystone cops on the payroll here. HAHAHA

I am out…..*laughing* 😀

    Wow..that scam is elaborate!

    And on to the autopsy… AUTOPSY yet. When you originally told me this story I couldn’t get past the word, ‘autopsy’ to even hear the story out… autopsy is something performed on a corpse, not a investigation in a lab on meat. what? did they learn the word on CSI the night before? Wow…let’s do an awtoopsy boys! Weez big cops now! And weez so scary tooo!
    Well, I hope they found the murderer of that burger. Put ’em away fer good, so that our tax dollars can house the criminal for life instead of paying for police to fight crimes. I mean hell, we wouldn’t want oxycotin to be available to those who need it when the drugfuckees can sell their children’s foodstamps to pay for them on the streets…now would we?

    love you.

    That scam thing irks me.

    We moved from Utah to Florida last week and were searching online for a place to rent. We logged onto Craigslist and started emailing people to get more information. One person emailed me back. When I asked him how he would like rent to be paid (probably Western Union) he never responded.


    Could it be because he’s an asshole?

    Email pasted below:


    I did get your response concerning the AD I posted on craigslist. The house is still available but presently I’m not around.. I did bid for a portion of petroleum land sometimes ago in West Africa and fortunately I won the bidding so I have to move quickly down to Africa to have my company set up because I will still have to rebid for it in the next 10 years. I came over here with my wife, we both owned the house when we got married. As soon as we settled down here I had a thought of selling the house so I have to look for an agent, after getting one, we got a deal but later my wife advised against that. She said we may not be able to win the bidding next time, in other to keep our head when we return that we have to keep the house. I reasoned with her and accepted her advise. So I contacted the agent back and requested for my keys and documents. Later we decided to have the house rent out because of maintainance, we would have give the same agent this job also but the truth of the matter is that the agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant may not be able to reason along with me later if I let him or her know that I’m letting it out because of maintainance. If you notice, you will discovered that the price we are offering is far below standard price, this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the maintainance.. I know there is no way I can be sure that you are the right person to live in the house because we won’t be able to see physical before sending you the keys and the documents to occupy the space. But I just had a feeling that anyone who knows what it takes to put the kind of structure down should know that maintaining a building is mandatory, so if you belief you can take good care of the house and handle it like yours then I will be more than happy to let you rent the house.

    Please if you are ready now to occupy the house and believe you can assist us in maintaining the house, kindly provide the information below for record purpose..
