Warning about ATM's.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

This is IMPORTANT to look out for! Bank ATM's Converted to Steal IDs of Bank Customers A team of organized criminals are installing equipment on legitimate bank ATM's in at least 2 regions to steal both the ATM card number and the PIN. The team sits nearby in a car receiving the information transmitted wirelessly over weekends and evenings from equipment they install on the front of the ATM (see photos).

A wireless camera is disguised to look like a leaflet holder and is mounted in a position to view ATM PIN numbers.
The equipment installed and ready to capture PINs by looking down on the keypad as you enter your PIN... If you see an attachment like this do not use the ATM and report it immediately to the bank using the 800 number...

The thieves copy the cards and use the PIN numbers to withdraw thousands from many accounts within a short time directly from the bank ATM.

Equipment being installed in front of existing bank card slot. A skimmer is mounted to the front of the normal ATM card slot that reads the ATM number and transmits it to the criminals sitting in a nearby car.

A Lost Purse .
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Back home after a day's shopping Donna discovered she'd lost her purse. Distraught, she insisted there was no chance of it being handed in, but her husband persuaded her to phone the last shop she'd been in - a large supermarket. To her amazement Donna was told her purse had been found in the car park. She rushed straight down there and was relieved to find her cash and cards were still there. As amazement turned to gratitude the lady in charge of lost property gave Donna's initial cynicism another jolt.

In 20 years of working at that supermarket, she said, there had been more purses handed in than had been claimed. She'd never had anyone phone the shop looking for their purse and not been able to return it to them.

Isn't it nice to know that the great British public are more trustworthy that we - and Donna - sometimes give them credit for ?

2. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice. OOps sorry! done that one. ...

4. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person. Yup!
5. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you. And that!
6. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment. Well darn it!
7. Causes you to hit 'SEND' before you've finished. Oh no - not again!
8. Causes you to hit 'DELETE' instead of 'SEND.' I just hate that!
9. Causes you to hit 'SEND' when you should 'DELETE.' Aaaargh!!
