I believe in speaking my mind, regardless of the people or subject.

 I don’t hide behind a mask. That is my Fizzog that you can see, so what you see and read is what you get.

I have recently received these details from my NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH CO-ORDINATOR Nicole in CHORLEY, LANCASHIRE but is nationally widespread.These TECHNO GADGETS will be GLOBAL I am sure.

My Blogs  receive interest at present from (at the last count 47 Countries) and so will be of interest to many people.

Some of my readers have been surprised that I do not sell my INFO as an e-book. That is not what I am about.

The INFO that I supply via my BLOG is FREE (tho you could please click on the THUMBS UP ICON at the end of the blog) and hopefully you will safeguard yourselves by following some of it, so…………

This is as I received the advice word for word which I am amazed at and is from a POTENTIAL VICTIM and the POLICE.

“I locked my car with my REMOTE LOCKING DEVICE. As I walked away I heard my car door unlock. I went back and locked my car AGAIN, THREE TIMES!!!

Each time, as soon as I started to walk away, I could hear it UNLOCK AGAIN!!!  Naturally alarmed, I looked around and there were two men sitting in a car next to the store I was about to shop at.

They were obviously watching me, and I have no doubt that they were somehow involved in this weird situation.

I quickly abandoned my errand, jumped into my car and sped away.

I went straight to the Police Station. I told them what had happened and found out that I was part of a NEW and very successful scheme being used to GAIN ENTRY into PARKED cars at supermarkets and Park and Ride rail and bus terminals.

Two weeks later, my friend’s son had a similar experience….While travelling, he stopped at a motorway service area to use the toilet.

When he came out to his car LESS THAN 5 MINUTES LATER, someone had managed to get into his car and he had his mobile phone, laptop computer, sat-nav, briefcase and other belongings stolen. The criminals have the same set up when you PARK and RIDE at railway stations. Below is my local Park and Ride terminal.

He called the Police and since there were no signs of a forced entry the Police told him he had probably been a victim of the latest robbery tactic. There is a device that robbers are using now to CLONE your SECURITY CODE when  using your REMOTE LOCKING DEVICE.

The ‘criminals’ sit at at a distance and watch for their NEXT VICTIM. They know you are going inside the store, restaurant or whatever and they know that they have time to STEAL and RUN.

The Police Officer said ‘ALWAYS LOCK YOUR CAR MANUALLY WITH THE KEY’ when parking in a PUBLIC AREA. That way if there is someone sitting in a car nearby, watching for their NEXT VICTIM, IT will NOT BE YOU.

When you lock up with the key when exiting the vehicle, it DOES NOT SEND THE SECURITY CODE, but if you walk away and USE the REMOTE BUTTON, it SENDS the CODE THROUGH the AIRWAVES where it can be EASILY INTERCEPTED by the DEVICE”.

This is VERY REAL so be aware of what you have just read.

Think how many times we all lock our cars with our remote device just to be sure we remembered to lock them-and BINGO, someone has our CODE……and potentially whatever is in our vehicle.

The photo opposite shows shattered glass from a vehicle that was physically broken into. The chances of the criminals being caught is far greater when smashing the car windows. That seems to be why they are choosing more sophisticated methods of gaining entry to ‘our’ vehicles.

PLEASE SHARE this INFORMATION with everyone you know in the hope that we can cut down on car theft crimes and frustrate these CRIMINALS  therefore avoiding the UPSET of having our valued possessions stolen. DO IT NOW.

Take care

Hi Guys.

Website for you to look at.

 Welcome to ‘Old Git‘ Jimbo’s blog @ my personal e-mail is .

The websites are and

Checkout our   new range of COFFEE MUGS and our   GIZMO  page, WISH LIST  & also our 2/3/4 way team shirts. 

I believe in speaking my mind, regardless of the people or subject.

I don’t hide behind a mask. That is my Fizzog that you can see on this page, so what you see and also read is what you get, but if you like what you read then I would appreciate you clicking onto the ‘LIKE BUTTON‘. That’s all I ask of you.

Since I became a ‘blogger’ I have been very, very reluctant to speak about my personal life.


This subject is very close to my heart because I resent the FRAUDSTERS with a PASSION. Read on and you will ‘maybe’ understand why.

When you have read my blog check out this website and prepare to be EDUCATED.

I have always been happy to blog about some of my experiences and what I have learned from other people’s experiences and then give an opinion (never advice) so that anyone reading them can decide to take a different path/decision if they choose.

What I am about to tell you is very personal and I SINCERELY hope it is of some help if you are faced with a similar scenario, especially if you have an elderly relative such as an elderly Mother, Grandmother or Aunt. Women are the norm but men have also been suckered in. Check their mail for offerings of cash prizes in return for cash payments and check out their bank statements/cheque-book stubs.

Your situation will perhaps be similar but not exact. Never the less it needs addressing.

I said I am very reluctant to be personal, especially about my mother. I have been and always will be very protective of her. She is a rare jewel. So much so that 2 years ago I had the opportunity of being interviewed at home with Mum by ITV with the intention of being televised nationally concerning SCAM MAIL. The ONLY reason I decided not to go ahead with it was because I did not wish to show ‘my Mum’ up on TV. I did explain to her that if she ‘promised’ to stop sending £££££££’s to the Scammers then I would not go on TV. She broke her promise so now you can read the ghist of the SCAM PROBLEM.

My mother is now 90 yrs old and is reasonably able bodied and I have been her ‘carer’ for a few years. Mum has been diagnosed as suffering from ‘dementia’. She has lost the sense of logic and reasoning. She goes into town to shop and that is not a problem because her long term memory is not affected. She can reminisce from 80 years ago as a young girl in Dublin, Eire.

For the last 20 yrs she has received ‘SCAM MAIL’ from many ‘SCUM MAILERS’. I say that because that is exactly what they are. They have become more prevelant in the last 5 years.

The ‘SCUMMERS’ which I prefer to call them (it is a more polite description than they deserve) categorically state that you have ‘WON’ £20,000 for example but cannot send it to you unless you send them a payment for ‘administration/processing fees’ which is generally between £15 t0 £40 and they send their mail  from all over the world. Some are even posted from Hong Kong but the cheque has to be sent to the Netherlands because they always put a self addressed envelope in with their mail which (by the way) requires a stamp. Is Scam mail illegal in the Netherlands?

In Law if  a service or goods are offered and accepted with a payment, and that service or goods are not provided then surely that is fraud and breach of contract. When I was studying Civil Law at College I was taught that a contract has to consist of an ‘offer and acceptance’.

Therefore the scammers are offering prize money (which is never sent)  and the suckers are sending payment for it. THAT IS FRAUD which is a CRIMINAL OFFENCE.

Mum must have sent them approximately £20,000 over the years, without receiving a penny in return. Mum does not like me voicing my opinion about them because she classes them as friends, including ‘so called ‘CLAIRVOYANTSAlan Carr, David Phild, Sylvestor Stallones mother and if you remember the 70’s/80’s TV series ‘The Amazing Kreskin‘. They have sent my mother mail offering their predictions under the pretext of asking for sums of money up to £50. They may through this blog threaten to sue me because I have named them. BUT I have the letters (HUNDREDS) to support what I am saying here, so bring it on. Publicity is needed to make people aware of just how HUGE this epidemic is so I will be the ‘guinea pig’.

Parasites can cause disease and plagues. These SCAMMERS/SCUMMERS are PARASITES and LEECHES of the ELDERY and VULNERABLE society. They even have a ‘SUCKERS LIST’ which they sell on to FELLOW SCAMMERS.

Over the years I have intercepted and kept bags full of Mum’s mail from these ‘PARASITES’. I have returned hundreds of letters to these SCAMMERS. Friends have said to me “why don’t you just destroy the mail”? I could do that, but it doesn’t solve the issue.

I have said to Mum, “you are making these people ‘wealthy’ and yourself a ‘pauper'”.

We have recently moved house and things are much better. She does not receive any more SCAM MAIL because it still goes to our last address and the new occupiers will be receiving through their letter box approximately 600 letters per month (we left the address 3months ago) so there are maybe 2000 letters still there.

I fabricated a letter and addressed it to Mum at our present home saying that these scammers had been taken to the ‘International Courts’ and that they had been threatened with imprisonment if they didn’t stop sending ‘fraudulent mail’.

It has made a small difference but she is, I think, having ‘withdrawal symptoms’ from not having any mail!  

I filled a form in for the Post Office asking them to redirect mail to our new address including Mums mail, so that I could again intercept before she got it.

The Post Office told me that I could have my mail redirected, which I have done, but I cannot redirect Mums mail without her written consent.   She also has to be at their office in person so as to prove that I am not forging her signature. Lets face it is she likely to agree to me getting her mail when she looks forward so much to her ‘friends’ contacting her?  I have also been advised to contact a solicitor so as to give me complete control over her money but then where is her dignity if I do that?

The Government are also Political parasites  because the Post Office/Royal Mail makes £millions a year from foreign scam mail. They have at least 3 holding points for returned mail in the UK. Heathrow Ind Est, Hounslow, Middlesex is one, another is Riverside Cargo Park, Colnbrook,Berkshire, another is PO BOX 4025 Slough SL1 0NJ and also the USA PO BOX 12956 KANSAS CITY.

I believe that Australia is coming to terms with it and is actually destroying mail at postal source , before the elderly and vulnerable get the mail and are sucked/suckered in by the lure/enticement/false promises of winning many thousands of ££££’s.

Our Government will not do that because of ‘self interest’ with the ‘Royal Mail’. Does Royal infer to ‘Our Queen’ and the ‘Monarchy?

Is the Monarchy’s name being dragged down into the gutter? Moreover if the answer is yes then is the Queen aware of what is going on?

The Government is earning money from IMMORAL SOURCES via the ROYAL MAIL.

For many years the Government has refused to legalise PROSTITUTION because they say that they would be receiving income generated from an IMMORAL SOURCE.

Isn’t that exactly what they are doing with the Scammers and their FRAUDULENT IMMORAL BEHAVIOUR?

If one of the Queens Commonwealth Countries ie; Australia is prepared to stamp  these fraudsters out then why can’t our Government follow suit? Self interest again.

If your opinion is that what I have said is hearsay or just my ‘opinion then check this website out below and it will ‘OPEN YOUR EYES’.

Hi Guys

My blog addy as usual is or send me a personal e-mail to and our websites are and

You will be quite surprised at the wide content on our website. CHECK IT OUT WHILE YOU ARE BROWSING.

Here are some RISQUE SCREEN PRINTED SHIRTS for you to see that we have been asked to supply, so we do.


Ok on to my blog.

I am quickly discovering from the comments that you send me, that you appreciate and are grateful for much of the content and facts  that I include in some of my blogs.

You have gone on further to say that you have found the facts very helpful and have put some to good use.

Previously I have included the facts, as I see them and have left you to decide what you do with the info.

This time in my blog I am just going to give you some common sense logical points that you should consider before you think about THROWING YOUR MONEY AWAY TO SCAMSTERS (SCUMSTERS).

Common Sense Ideas for Protecting Yourself against Scams

The best way to avoid getting taken in by a scam is to take heed of the age-old saying: “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is“. A free lunch sounds great, but not when it ends up costing you 100 times the cost of a regular lunch. Many of the internet scams resolve around a few common concepts. By learning to recognize them you can easily avoid many scams.

  1. Earnings, wages, commissions, winnings, that are excessive.
  2. Getting something you never asked for; ie: winning a lottery you never entered, getting a job you never interviewed for, etc.
  3. Getting involved in an “easy” business that you have no background in that offers high profits.
  4. Receiving payments of any kind and returning part of them by Western Union, Wire Transfer etc.
  5. Purchasing something from a far-away country at a price that is very low.

The key element in all of these is that you believe you will make some quick easy money. In the end you will lose lots of time and money and receive nothing in exchange.

Use a little common sense, and keep in mind that the scammers try their scams on many people and can easily develop the skills to manipulate you into trusting them.

A few quick examples.

Promise of jobs abroad

Ask someone in the USA if they want a job for US$ 120,000 abroad  and how easy it is to get. I bet you’ll find a lot of people that want just a job and there are very few such jobs.

Do you really think you can get such a job in Africa without even completing an interview? Use some common sense and you’ll save the money you’re about to send for the visa processing fees. Yes, you’ll be told it will be completely refunded. The truth is there is no refund and if you pay that there will probably be another fee… and another one… until you run out of money or stop paying.

Do you really think it is common for a nanny to earn US$500 a week… or that nannies in the USA are paid in British Pounds? Same scam, you’ll be asked to contact a travel agency to arrange for your trip… whatever you pay is lost money. I got accepted as nanny just by emailing and not providing any qualifications. Think!

Animal sob stories

Do you really think someone is going to ship a pet from Africa for a couple hundred dollars? They may claim to be religious and have a sob story about the animal, but aside from the actual customs regulations in your country if you were to receive an animal, they will play on your emotions to extract all kinds of fees as the animal is supposedly being transported to you. Of course the sellers don’t have any animals, just a few photos and heart wrenching words.

Accepting scam payments

There are many excuses to send you a cheque, from buying something to processing payments for someone abroad. The essence of this scam is to overpay you for something or trick you into thinking you can earn a nice commission processing payments. A few weeks or months after you deposit the cheques, they will bounce (forged cheques) and you’ll be out the bank fees, and whatever cash you forwarded to the scammers and you might even get hassled by the police too!

Deposit Accounts

Another thing to watch out for is someone from overseas that is looking for you to purchase products on your credit card (or theirs) and then reship the merchandise to them. If you use your credit card you can be sure you’ll never actually get paid (see above about forged cheques). If you use their credit card you can pretty much bet on it being a stolen card. Either way, you’re going to be out the cost of the merchandise and the overseas shipping. I won’t even get into the hassles you open yourself up to if the stuff wasn’t bought with your credit card.

These are just a few pointers to look out for and to consider before you PAY FOR THE FREE LUNCH.

That’s it for another blog so take care and stay healthy
