331 062 0338 This is the number used by someone who claimed to know me. He stated he lives up the street from me and is coming down from Guad to visit, did I want him to bring anything. At which point I realized I had heard this before. I said, "No, I do not know who the hell you are" at which point he hung up. English was his first language, probably American or Canadian.
Don't know if anyone else got an email from Monicacare202 to their chapala.com inbox. THIS IS A SCAM. Flags for me are "TOGO", "permit you to take 10% of the fund", and the grammar sucks. Too much like the exiled crown prince of where ever emails that were sent around a few years ago. Am I cynical - you bet; do I sympathize with the 'plight' - yes; do I know this person - hell no. "The reason I write you this letter is because I needed a trust worthy person that can handle this issue with care and carry out my instructions and directives with sincere heart I am Mrs Monica a Greece citizen living in Lome Togo, I’m 42 years old widow suffering from a long time cancer of the breast in addition to high blood pressure.

We have a friend who apparently opened his house recently to some people saying they were with some free government program to spray their house and yard. He seemed very impressed with how thorough they were, even asking if he had any more rooms or closets. I was alarmed and suspicious when I heard this because I seem to remember reading something somewhere about this being a scam. I found a post from 2011 like this, but cannot find anything more recent than that. Has anyone heard of this scam, or this "free" program which I am leary of?
