This morning I was going through my email and I couldn't find what I was looking for so I checked out my junk mail and I found this letter by accident.

Today is Pay4ward Friday & we're going to get a little serious here for a second. A situation has come to light with a dear friend. I'm not going into details here, but I am just going to say this, if you know a woman who is in a bad situation, a controlling situation or you suspect that she is being hurt, please don't hesitate to help her or at the very least talk to her.

I posted this on my Facebook Page, but I thought I'd share my wonderful experience with a scam call: So, I was sitting in the car waiting for my daughter to come home a while ago when the scam for 6.7% called (A company calling and trying to get information by promising really low rates). Since I had nothing better to do I decided to have some fun :) When I was prompted to press 1, I decided that it just might be fun.
