Privacy, Tempore, Pecuniam

Non amo debitum ordines. Ive 'nunquam gratam idea ut alius entitatem can, ad voluntatem, accipere fere quacunque mole pecuniam meam (bene … quidquid suus 'available). Collega cum demonstratur causa MTN fuisset vitari fuissem usura a debitum ordinem. Maybe in “commoditatem” malum non est simile.

Credo penultimo vis quaeritur utrum fides institutionum commodo (in hoc casu cum vestris nam pecuniam quam) – et si credere non vis deseri commodo. In mea causa, quamvis adhuc mihi conquirere commoditatem, Quam sine fictione didici viam duram cum MTN quod dupliciter potest esse inconveniens habeo vestri connexa mundi reducitur “remota insula” status. Paene omnes hodie ductor commoditatem factor.


Contra, jam multum tempus haberet ago, I had a dispute with Planet Opportunitas ubi commodum fuit duplex gladius anceps. Retuli suis negotiis practice ad Consumer Complaints Commissio (quia re-verat sicut National Consumer Commissio) and never got feedback from them. The gist of the issue is that Planet Fitness’s sales agent lied to me and a friend in order to get more commission/money out of my pocket.

Im ' Inventionem Vitality membrum quod dat multa beneficia, quos possidet reducitur rates super Premium faces – plerumque sanitas-related utique, as Discovery is a Medical Aid/Health Insurance provider. Ut mitteret illud simpliciter, Inventionem quae terribilis. Vitalitatis Christi beneficia operire gym memberships quae ulterius includit Planet Opportunitas. You still have to pay something, parva signum genera, ad Discovery, pro gym membership. Sed, post omnes, Mē esse sani, so they don’t mind footing the bulk of the bill. Sed, apparently, hoc significat Planet Opportunitas’ venditionesque agentia non adepto commissione!

Sic hoc quid consequntur in? Consequens est quod PF est scriptor venditionesque agens dedit mihi inflati figura pro “Vitalitatis-fundatur” membership. Mentitus est ille. Venerat ergo signum in me inflatus punctatum linea pretium “regular” membership (yes, id ipsum magis quam iustam haberet sumptus sociari), ending up about 4 et 5 quantum temporis Vitality dicentur sociari.


Some time in 2011 EGO denique wisened usque ad costs sum existimabat esse reddens. Discovery, certus sum non esset nimium felix circa haec interfecti. Locutus sum ergo ad Procurator ad gym, et factus sum certus quod tota contractus esset scrapped. Non sum unus ad violentiam … nisi ipsius lusum … in an Octanguli … sed post meum 5 saluto ut Procurator ad quare, quaeret, DATUM Ordines adhuc eventuras, non arma mihi, mirari se aiebat mecum Romam. Post pauca visits, Procurator et postulantibus manifestior et reliquit Planet Opportunitas et diligentius exposuerunt me quod “contractus” was between myself and Head Office and that the local gym, videtur libertatem-style operatio, quasi dicat: non modicum demi possit necne. Si caput non dicitur Office, lenta fortuna.

By this point I’d lost it. I had my bank put a prohibere ad ordines debit. It was a huge schlep: I had to contact the bank every month because the debit order descriptions would change ever so slightly. It also cost me a little every couple of months to “iterato” the blocking servitium. Quidni ego feliciorem putem quam fretus ratio suffragatur regularis locutiones sed non oportet quod sciat ea virga.

Technically I’m still waiting on the CCC to get back to me (numquam accidit – et quidem ita, ut supra dictum est quod probabiliter re instituta ceciderunt per rimas). Utique, per id quo PF etiam voluit blacklist me terminis non solverunt!

The inopinatus Heros

A effusas mentionem exitum Inventionis (Vocaverat Cogito de dentist visit) consecuta in callback ab uno Inventionis easque procuratoribus. Deinde quaeritur quaestio depingam, in particulari, et in scriptura, ut ex contextu melius explicare quae acta essent percontarentur. Tenear. Evenit quod rectum non esset “heu nimium felix” circa illam. In facto realiter non placet. About three weeks later, Planet Opportunitas refundi me Domini duplicia pro omnibus semoventibus, quod nunquam antea, et reditus accipiebant.

Inventionem est praecipuus Awesome. 🙂

If you ever find yourself updating a single application in Fornicem Linux (a very bad idea, btw) and it upgrades readline you might end up seeing an error along the lines of:
/bin/bash: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Hopefully you still have a bash prompt open and you haven’t closed them all. If you still can, immediately run the following:
pacman -S bash
else you won’t be able to run bash any more because bash would still be linking to the old version of readline.

etiam, in future, don’t run
pacman -Sy application
(python in my case)
instead, run:
pacman -Syu
which will ensure that all applications are upgraded.

Personally, I think that bash should have had a dependency set saying that it required the old specific version of readline and the same for the new bash, requiring the new version of readline. Regardless, rather play it safe. 😉

I think the Internet is a scary place. Etiam, me. Some days I find myself horrified to find the lowliest of criminal bastards trying to steal our livelihoods.

Etiam, people, there are criminals out there and they want your money or they want to use you to make money. What’s even more scary is the lengths to which they are willing to go, even risking YOU. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

I received an email saying that I was being offered a job as aRegional Assistant” et, though the details weren’t given, the email suggested that it was a legitimate opportunity. I replied asking about where they’d received my details and also about what they would require of me.

Being the skeptic I am, I thought I could spot scammers a mile away. How fortunate that I can still laugh at the idea.

A few hours later, they replied indicating that I’d soon receive further instructions. They’dprobablybeen referred to me by a friend and they had a pile of referrals and so couldn’t specify which friend had recommended me. I waited patiently and left it to the back of my mind. “They’ve probably found a good candidate already and I’ve lost out”, I thought. “How nice that a friend might refer me. Obviously I’m Awesome.” (and daft :-/)

So later on, I receive my email with myfurther instructions”. This is where I finally realised that I was dealing with scammers:

Hi. We’d like to start a trial task. Our customer will make a bank transfer to you this week. Please go to our site <site omitted> to submit the banking details where the transfer will go to. Once we’ve established a good transaction history, you will receive between 2-3 transfers per week (amounts of about R10 000 each except the first trial transfers).
Please confirm that you can start. We don’t send any transfers to your account until we receive confirmation from you.
On Monday you will receive notification, detailed information and instructions regarding the transfers. Thank you and have a lovely weekend.

Say what??? I checked out the web site in question and, without a doubt, this is a money laundering scheme done by professionals. They know what they’re doing and they probably launder millions every month. What’s more is that, inevitably, they will screw you over and get the cops to arrest YOU. These criminals can leave evidence behind implicating you even if all you’ve done is diligently moved money from one place to anotherand kept a small percentage for yourself. 😛

Money laundering is where illegitimate money (stolen, probably) is transferred via third parties to appear more legitimate. You’re an accessory to the crime and, even worse, you’re even likely to be the victim of it. Recognise when an opportunity is too good to be true. I was fooled for a short while. Next up, given that a victim might give out a lot of personal details, the scammers might steal your identity and start to implicate you in fraudulent activities without you ever having done a thing.

If you happen to have already given any details such as the above where they wanted my banking details, contact your bank and inform them of the situation. They will give you the best possible advice on what to do next. If you’ve already responded to the mail but haven’t yet already given them the information they want, don’t reply any further. I’d also suggest calling your local police for further advice.

Who’d have thought that something as silly as Choqok trying to automatically log into Twitter might get me temporarily locked out?

Oh well. I’m patient.

Tried to log in too many times?

We've temporarily locked your account after too many failed attempts to sign in. Please chillax for a few, then try again.
