Hi guys,

Earlier this yr I received an email telling me I had won $2mil (US) to send details so the money could be deposited. It was in some English sweepstakes. (AS IF.....) Anyway thought i'd play along and rang the phone number (which didnt even have country codes or area code) but i figured i'd try Londons code. To my amazement I got a recorded message saying it was the company i was after and out of hours. I rang back later and got onto a very un-english sounding man he asked for my name etc and confirmed that i was the lucky winner. He wanted my drivers licence (told him i didnt drive) and that they would be in touch. Sure enough he did ring back several times, wanting bank a/c details.


It all did sound very legitimate. I rang the Australian authorities and told them about what was going on, they were going to look into it but werent hopeful of catching anyone. I explained to them that the landline I rang in London sounded like it was being diverted to a mobile, and the man was not English.


There are heaps of scams and it is easy to see how people do get sucked in, as this sounded so real, yet too good to be true, also a search revealed there was no such swepstake, it sounded very very similar to a legit one though.

Howdy all.


I too received an email (about a year or so ago) telling me I had won a $2mil prize from an online lotto game. I had actullay participated in one or two free lotto games some time before I received the email which also contained a link to a legitimate company (I assume they spoofed the web site). These people said they were agents for the lotto company and would pass my prize on to me after I sent them a "small" sum of money for handling charges or alternatively I could go and pick the prize up for no charge. They also provided a phone number to rign. I rang the number and got a guy who spoke with pretty good english. I told him I was in Australia and I wasn't going to travel to Africa to pick up my prize and that they could just transfer the money directly in to my bank account. He came up with a few flaky excuses as to why they couldn't do that and assured me it was safe to send the small fee and I would receive a cheque for my prize in a couple of days. I strung them along for awhile until I got bored and stopped responding to their email.

hmmm here's one Ive just received (perhaps in time for Christmas? http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/weirdsmiley.gif )





Finally a Barbie I can relate to. At long last, here are some NEW Barbie dolls to coincide with her and OUR aging gracefully. These are a bit more realistic...




1. Bifocals Barbie. Comes with her own set of blended-lens fashion frames in six wild colors (half-frames too!), neck chain, and large-print editions of Vogue and Martha Stewart Living.




2. Hot Flash Barbie. Press Barbie's bellybutton and watch her face turn

beet red while tiny drops of perspiration appear on her forehead.

Comes with handheld fan and tiny tissues.




3.. Facial Hair Barbie. As Barbie's hormone levels shift, see her whiskers grow. Available with teensy tweezers and magnifying mirror.




4. Flabby Arms Barbie. Hide Barbie's droopy triceps with these new,roomier-sleeved gowns. Good news on the tummy front, two-MuMus with tummy-support panels are included.




5. Bunion Barbie. Years of disco dancing in stiletto heels have definitely taken their toll on Barbie's dainty arched feet. Soothe her sores with the pumice stone and plasters, then slip on soft terry mules.




6. No-More-Wrinkles Barbie. Erase those pesky crow's-feet and lip lines

with a tube of Skin Sparkle-Spackle, from Barbie's own line of exclusive

age-blasting cosmetics.




7. Soccer Mom Barbie. All that experience as a cheerleader is really paying off as Barbie dusts off her old high school megaphone to root for Babs and Ken, Jr.. Comes with minivan in robin-egg blue or white and cooler filled with doughnut holes and fruit punch.




8. Mid-life Crisis Barbie. It's time to ditch Ken. Barbie needs a change,

and Alonzo (her personal trainer) is just what the doctor ordered, along with Prozac. They're hopping in her new red Miata and heading for the Napa Valley to open a B&B. Includes a real tape of "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do."




9. Divorced Barbie. Sells for$ 199.99. Comes with Ken's house, Ken's car, and Ken's boat.




10. Recovery Barbie. Too many parties have finally caught up with the ultimate party girl. Now she does Twelve Steps instead of dance steps. Clean and sober, she's going to meetings religiously.. Comes with a little copy of The Big Book and a six-pack of Diet Coke.




11. Post-Menopausal Barbie. This Barbie wets her pants when she sneezes, forgets where she puts things, and cries a lot. She is sick and tired of Ken sitting on the couch watching the tube, clicking through the channels. Comes with Depends and Kleenex. As a bonus this year, the book "Getting In Touch with Your Inner Self" is included.
