The actual process is not that hard, just time consuming.

A message from PayPal, my account has been been limited.

Which is true; they wanted more personal details out of me that I refused to give - itís an ancient account from when signing up was much easier, and hasnít been used for probably two years. I figured it was easier to wait for them to close my account than actually take steps to close it myself.

But itís funny theyíve resorted to the language and threats of the scammers who beset their platform for so many years.

It was real, I recently logged in directly off my browser - not using any links - and there were the same messages waiting.

Have been ďdoneĒ with them for years, but waited for them to shut me down rather than DIY. Probably if Iíd asked to close the account theyíd have refused to act unless I provided the information they werenít getting anyway.

I was getting bombarded too. Went into my actual account, not any links, and fixed it, just wanted to confirm DOB from memory.

Trouble with these phishing scams is that they keep asking “innocent”questions over a period of time until they get all your info,then the trouble starts

Yep I got them messages too, ignored them thinking it was scammers too, then my account got limited. They just want your DOB, apparently a new regulatory requirement.

I find it easier and faster to get refunds than through banks, it's the only reason I use them.

Great for online purchases. Just that little bit extra safety.

Well all has gone good for Betty..... has a gang of 3 other rejects now, 2 males & 2 females. They've eeked out a territory around my small acreage.
No help required from me anymore, except food.
She still interacts with me. Likes to hang out when i'm using the tractor, offering up pointers on how to do things properly....reminds me of another female i know...
Much to my horror, witnessed 2 of them getting "jigitty" this morning......

Constable Rolfe of NT Police found not guilty on all charges of a hastily put together murder charge with too much political interference to placate certain members of the community.

Malicious prosecution charges after a typical knee-jerk "investigation" would be nice.

I'm all for scrutiny of the police but this was just a waste of money and time. I'd like to say how the **** this went to trial but we all know why.

Makes me feel good to have never used those shopper docket discounts. Don't shop at the freshly defrosted people or the down, down people. Both like to rip the consumers and farmer off.

got your passport ready and changed your money over yet?

when daughter no.2 was 16 years ago she was tripping off to see old school friends in Tassie. I asked her the same Q at airport just before boarding, just about had a panic attack.

Wish I could help but no room for any type of motor. The guy should ring Toll's as they have their own ship with a regular service to Tassie.

Itíll probably go Tasfreight on a skid, but sending parts with a car enthusiast is usually a safer bet against damage or mishandling.

In all transparency... i have helped a few people both financially/ emotionally and physically (mud army Murwillumbah/Lismore) in the last week that i took off work ( so i lost $5K earnings also, ahh well )

The price of fuel is bloody ridiculous, but i still have a vehicle to drive and a home to park it under...

Life is always humbling, i like to brag about things i have but i mean who doesn't??

I'm doing V8 happy laps this weekend, maybe that will make me feel good as well and i can post some pic's up ?

Peace
