ATM Scam

I don’t known how many of you might have already heard of the car scam, where thieves are lay waiting persons in parking areas and copying their car information by air waves. I’m not too technical so if I’m using the wrong terms bear with me. Apparently the thieves are able to get the code to open your car doors when you use your automatic button on your car alarm to lock the doors. As soon as you leave the car unattended they proceed to rob you.

Well I understand that the same concept is being used at the ATM machines. A device is attached to the door of ATM booths that captures the information on the magnetic strip when you swipe to open the door. Then they have a hidden camera inside of the booth to get your PIN number.

 One recommendation is to use a card like a Magna Rewards card or even a health insurance card with a magnetic strip to open the door to the ATM. Yes, it contains some personal data, but not assess to your money. Can you imagine if we were to use the ‘cunning’ in this country to build it rather than to tear it down? From what I’ve heard, the good news is that four persons were arrested for fraud in the New Kingston area. I’m sure there are still more car and ATM thieves out there so please be careful.

Nuff Love

The Small Sandal Shop

A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop.

From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, "You!

Foreigners! Come in, come into my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in.

The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. They make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try them on."

Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him

violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants,and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming; "YOU GOT THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!"
