Buy Discount Viagra Online

Buy discount viagra online Apparently even one-eyed alien nurses wear caps!

Buy discount viagra online For the life of me, buy discount viagra online I cannot remember where I found this photo, buy discount viagra online but it looks straight out of Doctor Who circa 1963.

Buy discount viagra online There were nurses in one episode of Doctor Who: a race of humanoid feline nuns called the Sisters of Plentitude.

I was about to say, buy discount viagra online “You can’t make this stuff up!”, buy discount viagra online but obviously someone did!

*****

You would think that after 18 years online and more than 7 years as a blogger, buy discount viagra online I’d know better.

But no, buy discount viagra online I actually fell for a scam this week.

No money changed hands.

Worse.

They ticked me off.

*****

It has been a long time since any sort of scam-type email has come through to me.

They have improved! They don’t misspell. Buy discount viagra online The grammar almost passes muster.

It seems a company wanted to use “Emergiblog” as their domain name and keyword in….wait for it…China/Asia.

You’re already smacking your head, buy discount viagra online right? “Doh!” Ding, buy discount viagra online ding, buy discount viagra online ding….scam!

The email wanted to know if I was connected with this “company” and if they were my distributor in China/Asia, buy discount viagra online because there was a conflict.

The company is a UK construction firm.

*****

Hmmmm.

I sent a cordial email back that said (a) I was not affiliated with the company who wanted the name and (b) I did not want the name registered by anyone else and (c) it would be a cold day in hell before I’d give the name up.

And that was that.

*****

Then, buy discount viagra online a second email arrives from a Yahoo address in….wait for it….China (with broken English, buy discount viagra online “Dear Sirs, buy discount viagra online”…ding…ding…ding!) saying basically, buy discount viagra online we got your message and we are going to do it anyway even though the guy who sent the first email advises us to find another name.

Okay….now you’ve done it.

Now you have pissed…me…off.

And you do not want to piss….me….off….

*****

The first rule of internet correspondence is that one remains cordial.

So, buy discount viagra online I sent a cordial response stating “oh, buy discount viagra online HELL no, buy discount viagra online” indicating that legal representation was being obtained.

You can’t swing a cat two feet in this family without hitting enough lawyers to form a firm.

It wouldn’t be hard to get exactly what I need.

But…

*****

I decided to let Web-guy extraordinaire, buy discount viagra online Shane, buy discount viagra online know what was happening.

About ten seconds later, buy discount viagra online I got the response:

“Oldest scam in the book.”

Followed by my Facebook blogger pals telling me the same thing.

How could I not have seen this?

It was only as large as a neon, buy discount viagra online freaking billboard!

I smacked my head so hard I had LOC for ten minutes.

*****

It won’t happen again.

I’m chagrined it happened at all.

How embarrassing.

The only consolation is that the threat to my blog identity brought out my killer instinct, buy discount viagra online even if I’m not blogging as much as I would like to.

One does not mess with another’s domain name.

It just isn’t done.

    I know how easy it is to almost fall for a scam. Last year I got an email telling me that my domain name was expiring.It looked so real. Before I sent any money, I investigated. I am so glad I did. A couple people didn’t. Their story and mine is at
