    Can I call collect I have run flat oot of Euros.

    Got a nephew who is an ER Nurse. World class boogie boarder and runs those God awful cross country iron dude marathons. Lives on Kauai.. Denies that he sometimes works where the surf is great. I am not going for that story.

    Oh I have a lot of respect for a good scammer BB, they are very good at what they do. They're like a fine fly fisherman, stalking the fish, working out what bait to use, casting accurately and presenting the fly to the fish just right and setting the hook with precision. These email scammers are just playing the numbers, there are enough people out there that really are gullible enough to make it worth their while but there is no skill or subtlety in it. It's like Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street sitting in the boat shouting "Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy" and waiting for the fish to jump into the boat. If you spend enough time on enough rivers sooner or later one will jump in but it wasn't anything to do with skill.

    Our Corporate IT people sent round a phishing email recently to see how many people would be dumb or careless enough to click the link. Most of us deleted it, a few brought it to the attention of corporate security and management. They still got lots of clicks, including the MD......I honestly didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

    Joining the EU ? Not such a bad idea, Nelix, they are going to be short a member now.

    I think we may work for the same American corporate FB; same exercise, and the same result!

    I guess they only have to scam 1 in a 100 and it would be better than working for a living
