Well, I believe it. Don't you?


  1. It's a job for James Veitch -

  2. I had no idea DHS was so concerned about making sure I get my money...

  3. Jump right on that before they give it to someone else.

  4. So good of our government to be bailing folks out to this degree . . .

  5. Hey Patrice,
    Different question. I enjoyed Don's blog but I can't access it now. What's up?

  6. Hi again,
    Just noticed your past response about Don's blog. Got it! But enjoyed it. Thanks

  7. Maybe if they had made the monetary number smaller ?... LOL I received a call from SSI the other night, foreign accent and could not understand her until she asked for my DOB.. the scammers are out in droves.

  8. Could I borrow 50 bucks to buy some toilet paper?

  9. The sad thing is that there are people who fall for many scams.

  10. Well, I needed a good laugh today. Although, it is very upsetting that people fall for that or for similar things.
