Lessons Learned

I'm sitting in my apartment listening to instrumental music as I look out of my window into the night. Today was an interesting day to say the least. But, even though today wasn't the best of days... I have to admit that I did enjoy my weekend 🙂 . As I did have the opportunity... Continue Reading →

Climax

"Going nowhere fast, we've reached the climax. We're together, now we're undone. Won't commit so we choose to run away... do we separate? Oh, don't wanna give in so we both gave up. Can't take it back, it's too late, we've reached the climax." Those are lyrics from a song Usher co-wrote and performed called "Climax". As I...

Right or Wrong?

Recently someone wronged me. So, I confronted them about it, thinking maybe they would understand my feelings and ask forgiveness. But, they didn't. They didn't feel like they did anything wrong. What really hurt was that they didn't care about my feelings nor attempt to understand my perspective. That's not right. It made me think to... Continue Reading →

Recently I was reading a blog by a friend where she said that, "In the game of love everybody wants to walk away from the table with a better deal than they are offering". This got me thinking...am I so vain or superficial to only look for women who can offer me more than I have... Continue Reading →

I wish I could enjoy the holiday season, and celebrate it the way I feel it was meant to be celebrated. Eggnog and turkey, red sweaters and scarves, smiles and... Continue Reading →

I Can’t Breathe

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt ignored, unsupported, undervalued, or felt disrespected by someone? I know everyone has felt that way at one time or another. There is no drug that makes you ignore their words, or aloe vera to heal the heart wound caused by the individual(s), eventually you just have... Continue Reading →

How to commit check fraud

TheReporterandTheGirlMINUSTheSuperMan!

Unwittingly of course.

There was this job opportunity from careerbuilder.com where I applied for an administrative position. I received a response from someone, who goes by the name “Toni Dove,” and needed a personal assistant to help with some things for her art gallery.

Initially it looks legit, I googled Toni Dove and she is an artist in the city. As well as the job description sounded mundane: purchasing supplies for the studio, calling customers to collect payments, etc…

And all from home?!

So “Ms. Dove” mails me a packet which I received today, and inside contained a check, with her instructions to cash it and IMMEDIATELY deduct $500 for myself as a weekly payment then to wire the rest via Western Union to SOS Children’s Villages Yemen.

Oh no, blood money!

As you can see by the image posted, the check looks very real. But computers have come…
