    Apparently some POS is running another scam. I got an email from my power company this morning...



    Warning about bill payment
    scams

    We have confirmation of a bill payment scam that is
    actively spreading through social media and word-of-mouth. We believe this is
    part of a nationwide phishing scam.
    Scammers are telling customers that a third
    party, in most cases the Federal Government or President Obama, will pay their
    utility bill in exchange for their personal information such as social security
    numbers and personal banking information.
    Of course, this is false and we have
    notified authorities including the State Attorney General's Office and the
    FBI.


    While customers may have received information from
    friends or the internet instead of the scammers themselves, we urge all
    customers to never use banking information that is not their own. Unauthorized
    use of account information is illegal and any payment applied to utility bills
    will be reversed.

    How fucking stupid do you have to be to fall for this????
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    The main people who will fall for this are those Obamaphone recipients because all you have to do is give your SS# and proof of certain govt programs. At least with welfare, you have to jump through lots of hoops.
    They would just assume Sugar Daddy O is paying for more stuff for them.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
