Google values your right to privacy! Your information is 100% secured and will be used exclusively for the purpose of this award only.
The Google Promotion Award Team has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Google Promotion Award Team has reached a decision from its headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, leading to a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.
Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the Google interactive Lotteries Board Commission.

Yours faithfully,
Lawrence “Larry” Page
Co-founder and CEO of Google Inc™

I’m sure there are folks out there who are really tempted to respond to this email. I hope they see this post before they do because this email is utter bullshit. It’s sole purpose is to get people to divulge their personal details. This makes it a phishing email. Please don’t fall for this crap.

One also has to wonder, as Google’s main office is in California, why they would use their London office to base this promotion.

Again, if you get this email place it straight into your junk mail folder.


Australian Political Bullshit

Political Bullshit In Australia

I hate political bullshit! I think its absolute bullshit that there is one rule for politicians and another one for the rest of Australia. What really pisses me off is that Aussies, as a rule, just sit back like a flock of timid sheep while these politicians line their pockets with money along with a whole lot of fringe benefits.

Why bring all this up now while I’ve kept so quiet for so long? It’s because of this email that I just received. The author is supposed to be Dr. Dale Kerwin of the School of Educat, MT Gravatt Campus, Griffith University.

Here is the email in it’s entirety….

As a self funded retiree, I’m frustrated with Canberra’s continuous fiddle with Superannuation contributions and rule changes. Plus the measure to Re-balance the Pension Assets Test to be implemented on 1 January 2017.

So here’s fair warning to all politicians of any persuasion, this group of aged voters may be about to make the greatest impact on any Federal election in history, ignoring them may be the start of a changed political environment in this country.

Change the Entitlements

I absolutely agree, if a pension isn’t an entitlement, neither is theirs. They keep telling us that paying us an aged pension isn’t sustainable.

Paying politicians all the perks they get is even less sustainable! The politicians themselves, in Canberra, brought it up, that the Age of Entitlements is over:

The author is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list;   in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in Australia will have this message.

This is one idea that really should be passed around because the rot has to stop somewhere.

Proposals to make politicians shoulder their share of the weight now that the Age of Entitlement is over:

  1. Scrap political pensions.

Politicians can purchase their own retirement plan, just as most other working Australians are expected to do.

  1. Retired politicians (past, present & future) participate in Centrelink.

A Politician collects a substantial salary while in office but should receive no salary when they’re out of office.

Terminated politicians under 70 can go get a job or apply for Centrelink unemployment benefits like ordinary Australians.

Terminated politicians over 70 can negotiate with Centrelink like the rest of the Australian people.

  1. Funds already allocated to the Politicians’ retirement fund be returned immediately to Consolidated Revenue.

This money is to be used to pay down debt they created which they expect us and our grandchildren to repay for them.

  1. Politicians will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Politicians pay will rise by the lower of, either the CPI or 3%.
  1. Politicians lose their privileged health care system and participate in the same health care system as ordinary Australian people.   i.e. Politicians either pay for private cover from their own funds or accept ordinary Medicare.
  1. Politicians must equally abide by all laws they impose on the Australian people.
  1. All contracts with past and present Politicians men/women are void effective 31/12/16.

The Australian people did not agree to provide perks to Politicians, that burden was thrust upon them.

Politicians devised all these contracts to benefit themselves.

Serving in Parliament is an honour not a career.

The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so our politicians should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people, then it will only take three or so days for most Australians to receive the message.

Don’t you think it’s time?

Please do this if you can. Australia needs our help.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX Parliament and help bring fairness back into this country!

If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete.

What really pisses me off is that bullshit politicians can collect a pension as soon as they retire, while we have to wait until we’re 70!

Not only that, our pension is means tested so if we’ve managed to save enough money our pension is denied us even though we’ve contributed to their pension by paying tax all our lives!

What’s more is that those bullshit politicians can continue to work, earning 6 figures, while they collect their pension.

This article even shows how a politician’s, who has passed away, pension is being paid to his family?

If you agree this is bullshit leave a comment and share this post one your favourite social media.

 


You have to love the following bullshit scam phishing Hang Seng Bank scam. I say this because they’ve actually provided a bit of a story leading up to their bullshit scam. Shit, they even provide a link to a news story in order to lend credibility to their crappy scam. I’ve posted the scam in its entirety below.

Beware The Hang Seng Bank Phishing Email

Hang Seng Bank phishing scam

Wai Chung Lam.
Vice/Chief Executive.
Hang Seng Bank Ltd.
Hong Kong.

Good Day,

This is a Life time Opportunity and a genuine opportunity for both of us. I am Wai Chung Lam,Vice/Chief Executive. with the Hang Seng Bank and I got your profile while insearch for the right
person that suits this transaction and can be of asisstance in this transaction of which if you are interested and serious we
will be through within a couple of days.

Before the U.S and Iraq war our client Lieutenant-Colonel Omar Musa Hussein who was with the Iraq forces and also businessman, made a numbered fixed deposit
for 18 calendar months,with a value of Twenty Seven Million Nine Hundred Thousand United States Dollars  only in my branch.Upon maturity several
notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003.
Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him.

We later found out that the Colonel along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a suspected car bomb that rocked the
Italian military police headquarters in the southern Iraq city of Nassiriya.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2003/nov/12/iraq.italy

After further investigation it was also discovered that Lieutenant-Colonel Omar Musa Hussein did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit.

And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank.
So now, Twenty Seven Million Nine Hundred Thousand United States Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 12years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Lieutenant-Colonel Omar Musa Hussein so that you will be able to receive his funds.

MODALITIES:
I want you to know that I have everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Lieutenant-Colonel Omar Musa Hussein, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job.
After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.

There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account,we shall then share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you.

Should you be interested please send me your:
1,Full names,
2,Occupation
3,Private phone number,
4,Current residential address,

For security reasons reply via my private email: waichungla@yahoo.com.hk and finally I shall provide you with more details of this transaction.

Your earliest response to this letter is appreciated.
This is a Life time Opportunity.

Kind Regards,
Wai Chung Lam.

I publish these emails so that people who receive them may find this post and in doing so gain the information so they don’t fall prey to these assholes.


I just received another phishing email from someone called Marina Luda. I know this is one of those phishing emails whose entire purpose is to obtain the sensitive information of the unaware recipient.

Even though this email is full of bullshit there may be people out there who may get sucked into it. This is exactly why I post this crap on my blog, to warn people away from this time of crap.

If you get this email delete it immediately. Do not reply to it. It would also be a good idea to mark it as spam to decrease this type of scam from hitting your inbox.

Attention:

I am Mrs. Marina Luda, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in Florida USA.My residential address is as follows, 7008 E Hwy 326 Silver Springs FLorida 34488 United States,am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $85,000 while in the US,trying to get my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel to Washington with all my compensation documents, And I was directed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director to contact Barrister Tony Gani, who is a representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a member of the Compensation Award Committee, currently in Nigeria and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $10.5 Million US Dollars,Moreover,Barrister Tony Gani showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email as one of the beneficiaries on the list he showed me, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister Tony Gani. Kinldy send your personal details to him to prove
your identification.

Full Name:
Home Address:
Occupation:
Phone Number:
Age:
Gender:
country:

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Compensation Award House
Name: Barrister Tony Gani
Email:bullshit email link which I have removed

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing. The only money I paid after I met Barrister Tony Gani was just $355 USD for the paper works, take note of that.

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barrister Tony Gani so that he can help you to deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.

Thank you and be Blessed.

DO NOT CLICK ON ANY OF THE ABOVE LINKS!

Just soi you know that email is bullshit. I know because I have several emails and each one of them got the very same email? What a lot of bullshit! All they’re looking for is for me to supply them with my details so thy can scam me or perhaps for a little identity theft. They’re certainly not going to send me an Apple iPhone 6s any time soon 😀

If you get an email that looks anything like the one above, whatever you do don’t fall for it! Delete the email immediately! Whatever you do don’t give them any personal information. Don’t click on any of the links because that way they’ll know they have a legitimate email address and you’ll open up the flood gates for a lot more of this type of crap!
