Prompted By Hacks and Scams

Try as I might, in my seven decades – most of which were lived in New York City of all places – I can’t remember being the victim of any shady deals or crooked schemes.

I never shot craps in Vegas nor have I even been to Foxwoods.

I was never conned in a dark alley by a guy playing Three Card Monte,  although I once had my wallet stolen and thousands of dollars were withdrawn from my bank account.  But even before the crook was caught,  Chase made good down to the last penny.

We once left an expensive camera in a London taxi and got it back.  And I once bought a car from a used car dealer and it ran perfectly for years just like he said it would.

So you’d think I’d be grateful for all my good fortune, but this week’s prompt is HACKS AND SCAMS and now I have nothing to write, dammit!

    Dana, you are one lucky woman. What’s your secret?

  2. Suzy says:

    I bet you have received plenty of scam emails and don’t even know it. Have you checked your spam folder lately?

  3. Marian says:

    Lucky you, Dana. My sweetheart has a habit of dropping things or leaving them in places, and he must have a guardian angel, because everything has been recovered except the times his wallet was stolen (Barcelona) or dropped (Amsterdam). I, on the other hand, reached to get produce in my local store and my wallet was gone in a split second. Now, wherever I shop, it’s on my body.

  4. Wow, Dana. Hey, by the way, I’ve got a nice bridge over the East River I could let you go for a sweet price. Or how about an iron tower in Paris. I hear the French are broke and need to sell it for scrap metal.
