I just got an email today from Woolworth that looked legitimate enough but is obviously a scam. You may have got one as well. It looks like the image below.

Woolworth Lottery Phishing Email

Woolworth Lottery Scam

I had to look twice when I received this Woolworth Lottery email because I’m actually a Woolworths reward member. I did a bit of a double take though when I saw the email address they sent it to. It wasn’t the email address I signed up with! That was the first warning.

The second one was the fact that it didn’t mention my name in the email. To date every email I’ve received from Woolworths addressed me by my first name.

The third thing warning was that the link in the email did not point to their domain at all. After clicking  it, which you should never do but I did because that’s the sort of guy I am, putting myself at risk for the greater good. 😉 Anyway it redirected me to page that also looked legit but again was complete bullshit.

This email was obviously meant to get you to divulge your personal information, either to try for identity theft or to hit you with other scams. Apparently there are other Woolworth scams out there and you can read about it here.

I know I’ve said this before but if you ever get any email saying you’ve won the lottery or that you’re going to get some free tickets in a lottery or something it’s going to be complete bullshit. Delete the email immediately.

The only way to win the lottery is to actually go out there and buy an actual tickets. Did you know that you can actually buy your lottery tickets online? While there are probably fake sites out there, there are also online lottery sites that have proven to be legitimate. I think you’ll fine this article most interesting.


It was over almost as quickly as it started. All in the space of a few hours we lose Tony Abbott as our Prime Minister as the Liberals turf him out in favour of Malcolm Turnbull. You may recall I wrote about how Kevin Rudd was knifed in the back some 5 years ago.This surprised a lot of Australians but not as surprised as when they shoved Julia Gillard out of the way and put Kevin Rudd back in!

Many Aussies were left with that WTF feeling. The Liberals used it as a bit of a platform by saying how unfair it was going behind the electoral’s back by putting in someone who wasn’t voted in my the people. They said that would never do the same thing. And here we are 5 years later with a brand new Prime Minister, one that one again we did not vote it.

Don’t get me wrong, I like Malcolm Turnbull and I’ve always said that he would make a great Prime Minister. What I have an issue with is the way they all went about it. To me the whole thing stinks of subterfuge. We all know they’re has been a hell of a lot of leaks of late. Leaks that were meant to undermine the Government, the one being under Tony Abbott’s leadership. One has to wonder if the whole thing was intentional. Leak enough bullshit to make him look bad. Do it long enough to ensure bad polls. Using those same polls as an excuse to give Abbott the old heave ho!

Sorry, but as far as I am concerned this is just another form of political bullshit. I’ve been talking to a few people and they are so disheartened by what has just happened. Some ask what is the point of it all? Why the hell should we go through all the trouble of voting for someone when their party can go behind Australia’s back by putting in someone of their own choosing? A few even stated that at least now we know who was behind all the leaks.

Malcolm Turnbull himself literally calls his actions bullshit in his remarks to the House of Representatives after the knifing of Rudd!

The betrayal of you as leader of your party was one of the most shocking events I have ever witnessed, and I would think any of us have ever witnessed, in politics—the scale of it. The idea that the man who had won, in this presidential campaign, an election against John Howard was then going to be disposed of, discarded like another course on a lazy Susan in a Vietnamese restaurant—the cruelty of it was extraordinary!

Seems to me that either Malcolm Turnbull has forgotten those words or he just doesn’t care!

Julia Bishop Malcolm Turnbull bullshit

So, what is the possible ramifications of Malcolm Turnbull’s overthrow of the Prime Minister that Australians chose? I’m very afraid that many may show their displeasure by voting the Liberals out in the next election. Labor will win and Australia may never recover from another 4 years under Labor. Remember how they squandered all that money under Rudd. It’s because of them that we’re in the position we’re in today. It’s because of them that the Liberals have not been able to revive the economy as much as they had planned to.

Sorry, it’s not all Labor’s fault. We also have the Greens and the wankers in the Palmer United party to thank for it. The problem is that even with Turnbull behind the reins the Liberals still have to deal with those morons that won’t pass the bills needed to get our economy up and running.

Unfortunately for Australians there are only two major parties that can rule, the Liberal National coalition and Labor. Because of last nights fiasco Labor could win by default. Faithful Liberal supporters could well vote for the minor parties to teach ‘them’ a lesson. It wouldn’t take much of a swing to kick the Liberals out and put Labor back in. Then very Labor that those who have any sense can see is run by the Unions. No wonder they’re trying as hard as possible to put a stop to the Trade Union Royal Commission.

The problem for Turnbull is he only has a year before the next election. The question is, can he do enough to appease the electorate enough so they forget the injustice they feel by having another leader removed without their prior consent.

Media Is Also To Blame

Let’s not forget the media because the media is also to blame.From the day Tony Abbott was elected the media has been out to get him. There was one character assassination after another. It doesn’t matter what Tony Abbott did the media always looked for the negative. Even when there was no negative to be found they would twist shit just so they could make him look bad.

I just hope Australians think twice before voting Labor in. I just can’t trust a political party that is so entwined with Union bosses!


Political Bullshit

I am so sick of the political bullshit. There is so much political bullshit flying around that it’s surprising that they continue to get away with it. The latest political bullshit started when Bronwyn Bishop spent $5000 on a helicopter ride from Melbourne to Geelong. For this she was crucified by the media as well as other political bullshit artists like Labor’s Tony Burke who keeps harassing the Government trying to force Bronwyn Bishop out of the Speakers Chair.

What amazes me is that Tony Burke is so full of political bullshit it’s not funny. This article shows how Tony Burke has spent close to $2.2 million in travel costs including charter planes and flying on VIP Jets! In total Tony Burke one of the great Political Bullshit artists has spent over $4.6 million of tax payers hard earned money since 2008! And he has the gall to crucify Bronwyn Bishop. Don’t get me wrong, what Bishop did was wrong but in my opinion What Burke did was worse.

More of Tony Burke’s political bullshit was revealed when we find out about his Uluru $12707.65 trip, of which $8656.48 was used to fly his family over. WTF are we paying for his family to fly with him to Uluru? And why the hell did he have to fly them business class? Are they better than the rest of us who have to travel economy? That should have come out of his own pocket. He certainly shouldn’t have claimed the travel expense to go to a Robby Williams Concert!

What makes this political bullshit so unbelievable is that all political parties try to distance themselves from all the uproar. Why? Because they’re all scared that anything else would cost them all the use of their bullshit travel allowance. Take note that they all say these “travel claims were within the rules.” Well, maybe they should change the rules so they stop ripping off the Aussie public. You can read more of this as well as other political bullshit in 10 most outrageous expenses!

Would you like to hear some more political Bullshit? How about Jay Weatherill’s plan to abolish the $13,500 travel base allowance! Sounds like a great plan until you find out that the pollies are going to get a pay rise to compensate for it. Is that political bullshit or what?

Then we have Greens Senator Sarah Hanson Young racking up close to a million bucks in travel expenses since $2008! The bulk of her trips seem to be to access the state of refugees all over the world. Ammunition that she need to attack the Government into doing more to alleviate the crisis. This is the same Sarah Hanson Young that said ‘”tragedies happen, accidents happen” after an asylum seeker boat sank between Australia and Indonesia, has used taxpayer money to help fund a trip to rescue illegal arrivals off Italy‘.

You can almost see the smiles on the politicians faces every time they use tax payers money to fund their personal trips whilst sticking to their ridiculous “within the rules” mantra!

sarah hanson young political bullshit

 

What really pisses me off is there seems to be one rule for the Politicians and another one for the rest of us! This has to stop. Stay tuned for a future post where I tackle their ridiculous pension rorts!

If you agree with this post share it with all your friends. Maybe if enough people get behind it some of this political bullshit will come to an end. We just don’t have the money to let this go on whilst the rest of Australia suffers.

The famous John F Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Wouldn’t it be great if our politicians lived by that rule instead of the one where they try to leach as much from our country as is politically possible.


I’ve included in it’s entirety the latest bullshit scam email that I’ve received. There is so much wrong with this email I would hope that people would see it for what it is. Just in case though I’ve placed it here so as to warn off any unwary ‘get rich quick’ minded folk out there.

Without getting into too much detail here are some of the main points that make this particular email scream out SCAM!

  • The grammar sucks big time!
  • It’s addressed to Facebook User. What, you’ve just won a prize and they don;’t know your name.
  • Didn’t come from my registered Facebook email account.
  • Their contact details is pretty crappy as it’s a yahoo email address!

There is so many other things wrong with this email. Come on guys, have a little fun tell us some of the things that you’ve picked out that makes this a scam email.
