No spam from Nigeria, but today had some calls from the Social Security Admin to let me know my SS# was suspended. The one number that showed on my phone was a legit number for a company in WA. I get stuff every day - email, text and calls.

The owner of my franchise office owns many other real estate related companies. Not only does this compel having clients sign a dozen disclosure statements, but makes me the recipient of  solicitations from an address I can't block.

A rush to get gift cards suggests a call from a felon employer informed that the utility was about to be shut off or only a gift card can avert the issuing of the arrest warrant. Share that once and I'll bet you won't be called the next time.

The woe of all is the constant wanting/dreaming of anything/everything as it pushes & pulls (called temptation) making the rounds. When you rise above this it all tends to go away or have less strength. Meanwhile, it searches for weaknesses probing and testing until it lands an opportunity.
