  • Winding down

    Having retired there is probably not going to be any urgent emails to deal with so the setting can be changed to Manual – ideally there would be a Once A Day or even an Every Other Day option.

  • Tax Refund Scam eMail

    Splendid! A £1,400.00 tax refund. But wait a minute…

    “Dear Customer”? Since when have I been a customer of HMRC?

    “How to return itself have not changed, only the format of what you claim and how you get paid back from HMRC has changed digitally.” At least they have cleared that up.

    It is the cheery “Best Regards,” that is the clincher.

  • Apple Downloads Adobe bargains email scam

    Interesting email from Apple offering huge discounts on Adobe software…

    ..but wait. That is not my usual email address. The web site looks like an Apple site apart from the poor [wikipop]typeface[/wikipop] choice.

    The About Us page masterfully utilises the English language to convince anyone that might be thinking that this was not a real Apple page.

    Splendid. Next.

  • Bing bong

    A humorous (in a tedious seen it all before kind of way) email from my daughter concluded (it was her HotMail account) with the message:

    Surfing the web just got more rewarding. Download the New Internet Explorer 8

    …which was the funniest part of the email. A good laugh is what one would normally expect from Microsoft but…. their new Bing search engine looks like it could be worth taking seriously.
