Beware Of Scams In Sheep's Clothing...... [LIARS sending PH messages; SHORT enough: scams]


My PH friend John Westlake...
does care about us all.
He worries we'll be scammed,
that we'll 'drop the ball'.
'Young Women' have sent to him...
and me, messages for 'Help',
asking us to get involved;
I say 'HOLD ONTO YOUR SCALP! '

Yes, I've gotten requests....
to help invest foreign money...
(and/or be an 'email' friend) ,
but both requests seem 'funny'.

Funny as in 'Look out you...
and 'me'; hang up really QUICK! ! '
And, If they persist I say.....
'Then beat them off....with a stick.'

    Thank you Bri Edwards for highlighting this issue. I have got so many emails seeking joint venture in business and pleasure and in one of those messages a person mentioned that I could have the access to her 'very personal photos' and many other details.. (Report) Reply

    Hi Bri,
    I have this nice bridge on the East River in NYC I could let you have cheap. Just send me your life's savings, and the bridge is yours. It's not even foreign,100% made in the USA.

    Nice poem, I've heard of such scams, but I've never actually seen one yet.

    Hello poet Bri
    It's a shame that there are people who turn the greatest things into that which you must guard so against. I agree, and enjoyed this piece. Loyd (Report) Reply

    Maybe I do care very much Mr Bri. There is nothing wrong with caring. While some may think it is a weakness, others will tell you it's a strength. All members should pay heed to the warning though. You could say that they are being given a financial incentive to do so. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
