psychic codswallop!

Oh ho ho, this is a good one: just got a mailing through from someone calling herself Raylene Van Worth, a psychic who claims to want to do good for people, and who wanted me to know that I have 72 days of good fortune coming to me, starting September 30th.

There is a condition, however, to this mailing. I need to send her £19.95 plus £2.00 for postage, so that she can send me my full reading, as well as an “energised Goldtone Key Charm”, engraved with ancient runes to protect me from bad luck…

Well, I’ve dealt with my bad luck in this particular instance – a quick search on the web turned up HEAPS on this little scam, which is going on around the world. Given that I must be on a million mailing lists, I’m amazed I didn’t get this before! Basically, it’s a load of old cobblers, but I shudder to think how many people thought “Oh goody!”, and raced for their chequebooks!

I guess the old adage is true: we make our own luck…
