Mail Fraud

In the mail I received some very official looking forms. The cover page was a long winded article about your eligibility to receive ATM fee transaction refunds due to a winning class action lawsuit in the state of Pennsylvania. The first form required you to prove your eligibility by providing bank account numbers and estimates of how much in transaction fees you have paid over the last thirty six months. The second form was an alternative method of proving fee expenses that required transaction records in addition to bank account numbers. The final form was required to prove your identity, it required your birth given name and any aliases that you your bank accounts may be under, it required a statement under threat of prosecution that you have not purgered yourself in any way, finally the form required your full address, telephone number, last of all it required your social security number and dated signature.

The mail fraud giveaway was of course the bulk mail rubber stamp and a lack of the recipient’s name. Sometimes I wonder if I’m in the wrong business.

Never Surrender - Never Relent
Resist Ignorance
Survivability is Security
More is Never Enough
You Are What You Do
More and Faster
Self Sufficient Is Inefficient
