Irish Password Protection!

During a recent PASSWORD AUDIT at the Bank Of Ireland it was found that Paddy O'Toole was using the following password:



Charlotte, North Carolina. A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company..

In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost "in a series of small fires." The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued.. and WON!

(Stay with me.)

Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company
that the claim was frivolous.

The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from
the company, which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire" and was obligated to pay the claim. Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars lost in the "fires".


After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON (Arson is the crime of deliberately and maliciously setting fire to structures or wildland areas.) With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

This is a true story and was the First Place winner in the recent

Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.

The One Flaw In Women

By Unknown Author

Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.

They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors..

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.

They have compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

However, if there is one flaw in women, it is this;
they forget their worth and how remarkable they truly are!

Credit Card Scam

This one is pretty slick since they provide YOU with all the information, except the one piece they want.

Note, the callers do not ask for your card number; they already have it... This information is worth reading. By understanding how the VISA & Master Card Telephone Credit Card Scam works, you'll be better prepared to protect yourself.

One of our employees was called on Wednesday from 'VISA', and I was called on Thursday from 'Master Card'.. The scam works like this: Caller: 'This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460. Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by (name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a Marketing company based in ?'
When you say 'No', the caller continues with, 'Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?'

You say 'yes'. The caller continues - 'I will be starting a Fraud investigation. If you have any questions, you should call the 1- 800 number listed on the back of your card (1-800 -VISA) and ask for Security.'

You will need to refer to this Control Number. The caller then gives you a 6 digit number. 'Do you need me to read it again?'
Here's the IMPORTANT part on how the scam works. The caller then says, 'I need to verify you are in possession of your card'. He'll ask you to 'turn your card over and look for some numbers'. There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are part of your card number, the next 3 are the security Numbers that verify you are the possessor of the card. These are the numbers you sometimes use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. The caller will ask you to read the 3 numbers to him. After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say, 'That is correct, I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?' After you say No, the caller then thanks you and states, 'Don't hesitate to call back if you do, and hangs up.
You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you the Card number.. But after we were called on Wednesday, we called back within 20 minutes to ask a question.. Are we glad we did! The REAL VISA Security Department told us it was a scam and in the last 15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 was charged to our card.

Long story - short - we made a real fraud report and closed the VISA account. VISA is reissuing us a new number.
What the scammers want is the 3-digit PIN number on the back of the card Don't give it to them. Instead, tell them you'll call VISA or Master card directly for verification of their conversation. The real VISA told us that they will never ask for anything on the card as they already know the information since they issued the card! If you give the scammers your 3 Digit PIN Number, you think you're receiving a credit. However, by the time you get your statement you'll see charges for purchases you didn't make, and by then it's almost too late and/or more difficult to actually file a fraud report.

What makes this more remarkable is that on Thursday, I got a call from a 'Jason Richardson of Master Card' with a word-for-word repeat of the VISA scam. This time I didn't let him finish. I hung up! We filed a police report, as instructed by VISA. The police said they are taking several of these reports daily! They also urged us to tell everybody we know that this scam is happening.

Please pass this on to all your family, friends and neighbors. By informing each other, we protect each other.
Neighbors helping neighbors; always the best policy!

Lies are trackable

Intresting when someone lies and think he won the round of lies, but in a long run, he looses his track and his victums are on track.

It is sad, but we have to disipline our selves and the coming generations that is wrong or it is sinfull.

There aren't any UFO

UFO or aliens doesn't esists at all in any universe.

The so called aliens are just Jinns, people see them in different shaps, forms and size, which is acceptable by the humans. Most of people don't know about the Jinns as they don't believe in God or don't follow the religion who defines Jinns, as creatures created by God (Allah).

Jinns are supernatural creatues God created them before Humans, they live longer and have the same lifestyle as humans do.

Some are Muslims, others adopt other religions and don't follow any religion. Some are good and others are bad.

Injustice toward women

I came across an insident, when a man became injustice toward his wife and God has taken his justice by making the man's life as hell, even his offsprings are miserable in all aspects.

Allot of cases I came across, of injustice; wives are been humiliated because their are always considered outsiders but the man's boold relation can get away with crime.

What I miss

I missed writing for a while, been away from reading random and intresting stuff and writing too.

Intresting when you read and share with others what you have learned. I love sharing, but the current time is not on my favor, it can be 'IF' I wanted it to be, but I choose to waste my time.

I am in a good mood to write now, I feel Facebook privacy gone down the drain, and Twitter picking up, specially in Oman. Bloggers are trapped between Blogging and Twitting, I am more favor of Blogging. Twitter is more real time news, and a success in Oman, Omani parents adopting it too.

Is there a Gossip Girl in town?

Recently, I have been watching 'Gossip Girl' TV series, about the ellite school girls and how gossip moves fast by simple click from the phone to Gossip Girl via SMS and then a summary or photo with dirty comments are sent to all the school teens' by SMS without a trace or from her blog GossipGirl.com.

Gossip Girl or GG is anormus, no one know who is she, but does it really happen in USA or Western countries? Did it happen in Eastern or Southern or Nothern countries?

I believe Twitter maybe the altimate source of spreading rummers but I never heard of such a thing happand before.

I think it wouldn't happen becaurse of ethics and religus values been preventing such a thing. No one daires to take someone's photo, else the person will be sevialy punished.

Now a days, I am more aware of how I behaive for not to get snapped at. God knows who has ethical value and who is not.

Enjoy your day.

Gossip Girl

Happy bithday baba

Today is my late dad's birthday, the 2nd birthday passes by and he is in another world, the spirit world after life.

Alfatihah for his soul.

It has been a while I didn't write a thing, should start something. I have been motivating my self to read allot, more of my holy book & other non-religious stuff.

I realized, not reading the holy book, makes the person feel emptiness and lost in this world. God said read, to brodean your mind, in all espects of life. The holy book of Kuraan is resourcefull in many ways. Some people tend to read for just for the sake of reading without understanding a thing, but when you focus & understand, you learn allot.
