I got an e-mail today, and the subject was ‘danger’. I know it’s spam, but the more I read it the more edgy I feel. This is what it says:-
I am working in a private detective agency. My name is not important. I want to warn you that I’m going to watch you and monitor your telephone line. Do you want to know who is the payer? Expect my next letter.
P.S I know, you don’t believe me. But i think the record of your telephone conversation will change your point. The record is in archive. Archive password is ******
There is an attachment which gives the impression, via it’s title, that it is a log of a phonecall. I’ll never know because I haven’t opened it, and never will as I’ve deleted it. I couldn’t care about the phone ‘tap’, I just feel horrid about the ‘watch you’ part and the ‘expect my next letter’. I just hope that other people have received the same spoof.
My aim of achieving domestic goddess status has taken another step forward, I baked my Christmas cake today. Scary stuff. Amy helped, she ‘chopped’ the almonds, we used a rolling pin, then added the flour whilst I put the eggs in and finally, after me having to rescue the cherries from her put the dried fruit in. We then had the family wish stir, those present stirred, those absent made their wishes on the phone whilst I stirred on their behalf.
