Deaf Scams

G'day Everyone!

One thing really worries me in the deaf community and that's especially on AIM. I know just about ANYONE has a Videophone (www.deafVP.com ) these days. That's how most con artists are finding their suckers out there faster than our hearing counterparts! Robert Goodwin explains it in his post : http://rsgeo007.blogspot.com/2008/01/deaf-scams-via-aim.html.

I had to post a warning on my deafVP listing that if people try to IM me instead of contacting me via e-mail, I have to report them as SPAM. But one sad thing that I know. I am aware of one such deaf friend of mine had literally been taken over and run roughshod by the schemers. It's amazing that she hasn't learned anything.. YET!

Meanwhile: I was checking out DEAFREAD and found a blog of yet, another opinion on the Gallaudet protest issue. Go read: http://eyekom.blogspot.com/2008/01/integration-is-answer.html . Be aware, it's a person in Sweden! Now that gets INTERESTING!!

So it's a short post day. Semper FI.
