The unrelentless scamming from Craig’s list really pisses me off. I’ve made several entries on the Des Moines and Ames Craig List and am just hammered by folks telling me they want to buy my stuff and want to mail me a check and have someone pick the stuff up…the check, of course, is being sent by the bank and of course, the bank erred and sent too much so would I be kind enough to cash the check and take $50 or $100 for my trouble and send the rest back to them..they are trusting me…you know..I would expect to maybe have an occasional someone trying to screw me out of money but 3 or 4 emails per entry is ridiculous. Then there are the other emails I get asking me to get back to them because they can show me how to really make money on my sales. This BS must be working, otherwise there are a lot of people spending a lot of energy for nothing. It’s pretty much irritated me away from Craig’s List. What’s the answer..no idea…but what a shame that a few screw up a good thing for so many.
He and I have been working on mom’s house..it is a lot of work. He’s pretty much stripped the kitchen. I took a few days off due to old age issues..my head, my neck, my jaw, my lower back and my hip just to name a few. I got into the hydrocodone pretty heavy for a few days..I slept like the dead….
That’s about it from here
Until next time….
