Hi, all. Summer vacation started today for teen boy and unbelievably I haven’t heard whines of boredom yet. Yes, they do whine in the teen years on occasion, but it’s no like a toddler or adolescent whine. I wonder how long that will last. Oy.
Anyway, you know what happens in summer (and pretty much all year) – the scammers come out with seasonal scam messages. Get money for your vacation, quick and easy job with lots of free time, get paid to receive and ship packages in your spare time, etc. This week I’ve received a few emails along the lines of the one I’m about to share. The difference is that this one has no themed message or job offer. Free money?! It would be nice if it was real.
