Attention Card Holder

I am totally angry with the youth of today. I am talking about all those dudes that sit in front of a PC/Laptop and think up ways to scam people. Now they are not even zeroing in on foreigners anymore.

No o! They don't hide behind the finger, saying "It is colonization money" anymore. Now we in Nigeria are the targets. Everyone that has an email address is a supreme target.

Some might say its not news, but I will tell you what got me riled up this afternoon. Some stupid kolo person sent me this mail:

InterSwitch Nigeria Limited= Attention Customer: Please Confirm Your InterSwitch Security Upgrade 2009

From: "InterSwitch Nigeria Limited"
To: undisclosed-recipients

[then with the interswitch logo]

it is soooooooooooooooo annoying! These people are terrible - I can pick up to five things that shows they are dupes!

First the security upgrade cannot happen without the banks not knowing. Everyone's ATM is connected to banks, and since the banks are Interswitch primary customers, it is reasonable that the banks notify their customers, NOT interswitch.

Second, interswitch makes too much money - how come they don't have their own mail system? Why use aol? It is not possible that they do not have "". Even that is silly, because they would have a dept that will use something like "info@interswitch" or "helpdesk@interswitch".

Thirdly, there is no direct url to the site. I mean that is the biggest mistake!

Fourthly, the copyright for the site cannot be 2009 - that will mean it was just created which is impossible!

And Lastly, the threat is very unreasonable - Interswitch cannot cancel a card without first notifying the issuing bank. It is the bank that grants the permission to them to cancel or freeze an ATM card.

I hate these lazy nogood jobless stupid blokes, and every chance I get I curse them with Deuteronomy 25verses 15 down. They are sooo lazy! Their counterparts abroad are putting their intelligence to good use, in developing apps that will be beneficial to their communities while these lazy bones are just coming up with ways to dupe other people of their hardearned money.


Even if you offer them a honest way out, they are too lazy to do it right!

I pray that some innocent soul does not fall for this one....

What is this wahala now? Why must such a tiny state in Nigeria cause so much wahala? It is not even in the center, it is not even an original state but a cut out of another. I really dont understand why every newspaper feels they must print something about Ekiti on the front page every single day. And this has been the case since it was created. The latest sensation is the election rerun that even our busy President had to take time to go and see. I mean, you would think with all the monitoring eyes, everything would run smoothly but no, another twist in the saga has been announced.
The outside world thinks we should be ashamed of ourselves. I a just praying that it does not get bloody, and that Ekiti will stop trying to keep attention all the time.

Am not dissing Ekiti o[that was for Vicky who will soon be my husband, so he'll not quote me after the wedding - he's from Ekiti :D]. Am just saying they should behave themselves.

Ironblogging - Blogging a week at a time

One of the results of attending CMS Africa 2016 in Kampala, Uganda, was the creation of an Ironblogger network, IBCOCO. The intent was simple: there is a huge huge benefit from having an online presence, for every business, and blogging frequently is one of the ways to achieve this.

Plans List?Carried out or not?

Have you ever planned the next year of your life and then after a few months, realized that nothing went according to plan? Well it happened to me. Back in October, I knew where I wanted to be in a year's time: I was going to be married, with my husband and I studying in a foreign country for masters degrees. We had applied and then things began to happen.
First my Dad felt I was rushing to get married (Never mind that he'd insisted when I was 17 that by the time I reach my age, I should have given him 2 grandkids for him to spoil). Then my acclaimed alma mater university refused to send my transcripts to the schools I had applied to. As if that was not enough, I had not taken my TEOFL exam which was required to apply.

Its now June. I lost the admissions because my transcripts never arrived even though my university claims they have sent it. My father has finally agreed to let me get married BUT at his own convenient time, and his own way (he has just declared he doesnt want us …
