I just got my first e-mail scam on my personal e-mail address

Had the same personal addy for 14 years. But our ISP provider had moved our e-mail to Yahoo a few years go. So we have to have Yahoo addresses just so email can be sent to our frontier email account.

The email was from a friend's Yahoo address.. It said she was traveling and needed to buy a birthday present for her niece.
(I know she has one niece. )
but the return address on that email was her name & outlook dot com, instead of yahoo. aha!I

being curious to find out the whole scheme, I asked how I could help.

Well....all "she" wanted was for me to buy 500.00 worth of google game cards. in 100.00 denominations,
and scrape off the back to reveal the pin, then take a photo of the pins and forward the pics to them.

that's quite a sum of money, so I asked them which niece it was for, and gave them 2 fictitious names to choose from.
Didn't get an answer back for over 30 minutes.

they just answered, had picked one of the names.
Can you believe that?

I'm debating if I want to play with them a bit more or just blowing them off with a serious secret answer question.

The real problem is I called my friend, she said yeah, she's heard from quite a few people by now, and had changed her Yahoo password yesterday.
So I sent her a test email at her Yahoo address, asking her to call me back, and guess what?
she got that email.
and so did the scammer, who gave an excuse why it could not call me.
which means they are intercepting her yahoo emails STILL.???

Looks like I need to get a one of those highly rated private email services....like Start Page now has.

Sharpie strikes again!

Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Were THIS Close to Being Charged With Felony Fraud

back in 2012, but one of trump's lawyers got the Manhattan DA to drop the charges.
Money was involved.

That Manhattan DA is still the Manhatten DA. Cyrus Vance Jr.
the one people are now counting on to press charges against trump and his minions and his kids.

Here's the story:


Turkey's Erdogan, Russia's Putin discuss Syria offensive: Turkish presidency...pic


Have a burning question about the arrests

It's reported that since late 2018, Fruman and Parnas have introduced Mr. Giuliani to several current and former senior Ukrainian prosecutors to discuss the Biden case.

Am I the only one thinking "the Biden case" is as real as the "adoptions" that were given as the topic for the meeting at Trump Tower awhile back?????

"I am ashamed for the first time in my career."

Twitter thread by a reporter...Jennifer Griffin

"I just spoke to a distraught US Special Forces soldier who is among the 1000 or so US troops in Syria tonight who is serving alongside the SDF Kurdish forces. It was one of the hardest phone calls I have ever taken.

"I am ashamed for the first time in my career

This veteran US Special forces soldier has trained indigenous forces on multiple continents. He is on the frontlines tonight and said they are witnessing Turkish atrocities.

"Turkey is not doing what it agreed to. It's horrible," this military source on the ground told me.

"We met every single security agreement. The Kurds met every single agreement. There was NO threat to the Turks - NONE - from this side of the border." "This is insanity," the concerned US service member told me. ""I don't know what they call atrocities but they are happening."
This American soldier told me the Kurds have not left their positions guarding the ISIS prisoners. In fact "they prevented a prison break last night without us."
"They are not abandoning our side (yet)."
The Kurds are "pleading for our support." We are doing "nothing."

Troops on the ground in Syria and their commanders were "surprised" by the decision Sunday night.
Of the President's decision: "He doesn't understand the problem. He doesn't understand the repercussions of this. Erdogan is an Islamist, not a level headed actor."

Acc to this US soldier on the ground tonight in Syria: "The Kurds are as close to Western thinking in the Middle East as anyone. "It's a shame. It's horrible." "This is not helping the ISIS fight." Re: ISIS prisoners: "Many of them will be free in the coming days and weeks."

Kangaroo Twitter win of the day


USA Today's Editorial Board: Trump is 'unfit for the presidency'

"The Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. We're doing it now."

In the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. Instead, we’ve expressed opinions about the major issues and haven’t presumed to tell our readers, who have a variety of priorities and values, which choice is best for them. Because every presidential race is different, we revisit our no-endorsement policy every four years. We’ve never seen reason to alter our approach. Until now.

This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency.

guess who blew off the House depositions??

Trump/Guilliani Ukraine "clients"......aka Russian mobsters

Two South Florida businessman who peddled supposedly explosive information from Ukraine about corruption involving Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton will not comply with a request for documents and depositions from three House committees overseeing an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman will not respond to a Monday deadline for documents and do not plan to appear for depositions scheduled for Thursday and Friday, their attorney John Dowd told the Miami Herald.

“No response planned,” Dowd, who helped defend Trump during part of the recently concluded Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, said in email.
