    RadioBloke got a letter from dear Janet, although it appears she may be hanging out in an internet cafe in Nigeria and routing email through Israel. But we're impressed that she's taking such an interest in the (personal, financial) security of Americans living abroad.

    I guess that means I won't be able to talk to my TUG friends anymore. :(

    Wow, I didn't even notice that $27.5M was missing! I'm getting really forgetful in my old age.

    I probably should've read the Patriot Act more carefully; I missed that bit completely!!

    Full Name..............illegal immigrant
    Full Address.............. human to animal
    Phone Number...............strain
    Sex.......... drill
    Occupation......... outbreak, virus
    Country............... deaths, recovery
    Age....... trojan, collapse.

    You know, Janet, you might want to cut back on the scotch during office hours. ;)
    No, Janet, thank YOU! :D

    It's probably real -- the Nigerians will provide their backup funding in the event that Congress wises up (is that even remotely possible?) and zeroes out their appropriations. What's a few emptied bank accounts among expatriates when it's for the greater good of God, America, apple pie, motherhood and Frau Windel?

    Possible explanation for some of it:

    Tweeting the word 'virus' could mean your Twitter account is read by U.S. government spies --Fake profiles used by Department of Homeland Security, says privacy group --List of keywords flags 'danger' signal --DHS may attempt to identify users from their accounts --Keywords include 'virus' and 'drill' 28 Dec 2011 The Department of Homeland Security makes fake Twitter and Facebook profiles for the specific purpose of scanning the networks for 'sensitive' words - and tracking people who use them. Simply using a word or phrase from the DHS's 'watch' list could mean that spies from the government read your posts, investigate your account, and attempt to identify you from it, according to an online privacy group. The words which attract attention range from ones seemingly related to diseases or bioweapons such as 'human to animal' and 'outbreak' to other, more obscure words such as 'drill' and 'strain'. [USociopaths don't want us talking about their lab-generated pandemics.]

    DHS Creates Accounts Solely to Monitor Social Networks --Several countries and cities are also flagged as key words. 28 Dec 2011 An online privacy group is suing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security accusing it of not releasing records from the agency's covert surveillance of Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. The DHS creates accounts solely to monitor social media sites and establish a system of records of the information gathered. The agency scans social media sites for a list of words that include "dirty bomb," "hostage," "exercise," "task force," "explosion," "lockdown," "riot," "nuclear threat," "brown out," "meth lab," "cain and abel" and "brute forcing." [Speaking of which, here are a few recent log entries, detailing dhs.gov visits to the CLG website: cbcp4.dhs.gov 1 9 81.14 KB 12 Dec 2011 - 15:18, sbcp2.dhs.gov 1 9 140.23 KB 12 Dec 2011 - 16:52, sbcp2.dhs.gov 2 11 197.91 KB 22 Dec 2011 - 14:34, cbcp4.dhs.gov 3 12 111.45 KB 27 Dec 2011 - 18:54.]

    US spies could be tracking you on Twitter 28 Dec 2011 The US department of homeland security reportedly makes fake Twitter and Facebook profiles in a bid to track down people who use "sensitive" words. If anyone uses a word or phrase from the department's list, American spies might read the posts, investigate the online account and even attempt to identify the person from it, the Daily Mail reported. Some words which reportedly attract attention are outbreak, drill, strain, illegal immigrant, virus, recovery, deaths, collapse and trojan, according to a report filed by a private group -- the Electronic Privacy Information Centre.

    I do think you should negotiate the terms a bit. With a $20K/day cap on withdrawals, you'll be shuffling cash from the ATM to your bookie for 4 years.
