Getting James Veitch’s Gold.

Tim BayerBRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—1/18/2016—The email exchange between James Veitch and Solomon-the-Scammer is exceedingly funny. While relating his tale, via a TedTalk, Veitch presents a novel perspective on handling would-be con-men. If all of us took a couple of minutes to engage scammers—using our bespoke junk email addresses, of course— scammers would have less time and inclination to approach more vulnerable targets. You may not have the time nor stomach to engage a scammer, but Veitch does here, with laughable results.

If you missed my previous post, here’s a link back to “Riding The Roof.”

After you watch Danny MacAskill survive a death-defying bicycle ride on the roof, brush up on the tactics James Veitch employs to defend his vast wealth from email scammers. :-)

(If you, yourselves, come across an entertaining link or video, I’d be interested in seeing it, and sharing it with my readers at Weekly Hubris. Please contact me at: Email: tim@demogrid.com.)

About Tim Bayer

Tim Bayer, Webmaster, and Assistant Editor of Weekly Hubris, was born and brought up in Webster, New York. He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design (TBayer.com) and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for Demogrid.com. He says he “tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer)
