Kate- I promise you a really witty response if you’ll send me $100 to upgrade my internet connection. . . . .
I was in a major grocery store about 10 years ago and the paper bags (to give you some idea of how long ago it was) bore an imprint reading, “DO NOT DISPOSE OF HOT ASHES IN THIS BAG”
I looked at the clerk and said, “Sometimes the gene pool just needs to be chlorinated”
I happen to be good friends with one of the investigating deputies in this case. There’s a lot that isn’t in the news story.
I suspect there’s a lot missing in almost every news story.
$100, eh. The check’s in the mail.
Perhaps. But how does one go from sending $100 to a stranger to $400,000 even as one’s husband, family and bank are all pointing out that it’s a scam?!
