A "land canadian"? WTF?

Of course, the whole thing is WTF, so I don't know what's so special about that phrase . . .

Cell Phone

Comment: I just had a message on my answering machine with a caller
claiming to be calling from India for employment verification. Caller ID
showed 918-042-5291 (area code for Oklahoma) and he wanted a call back at
a 905 number (southern Ontario). I an not now, nor have I ever been, an
employer. Furthermore, my phone number is unpublished and I don't give it
out to very many people.

I'm guessing they mean Landed Immigrant which is a permanent resident. Basically it's the step before applying for citizenship in Canada.

The caller ID of 918-042-5291 is more a formatting issue for the North America numbering plan. The country code for India is 91 and 80 as a city code is Bangalore.

90 is the country code for Turkey, and it appears the cell phones in Turkey start with 5, so a phone number 905, which it might be Ontario, could also be a cell phone in Turkey.

Comment: how do i go about reporting a company? i.e. VydoxTrial which
makes male enhancement drugs. they say my husband ordered an item
(11-20-12) for a free trial; the item was not received by my husband
although the company furnished a tracking number from the u.s. post office
indicating the item was put in our mailbox. apparently someone took the
item from our mailbox so he never received it. the ocmpany then
automatically sent another shipment on 12-18-12; both items were charged
to our bank account (89.99 each). my husband did receive the second
shipment and we called the company and advised them that we were going to
return the shipment for a refund and they advised us that the company
would not accept the return and that we have to pay the $89.99. I just
want this company to be reported as BOGUS.

Comment: Above is my husbands e-mail address at work. We have been without
our computer for four years. I have a Facebook page, but can no longer
remember my password or e-mail address. Our computer crashed several years
ago and we had quite a bit of financial difficulty and never replaced our
computer, as well as LAN line. I would like to get in touch with my
Facebook friends. My Grandson told me he requested a like on my Facebook
page and I have tried to explain to him that we no longer have a computer
and that I cannot remember how to access my page. Please help.

Comment: Hi! I'm an artist. My website was hijacked when it was up for
renewal. Before I knew it. A porn site took my domain. Um, which is under
my first and last name. I tried to contact them to get my site back but
the Internet company they went through is in Germany. So, I wrote an email
to the internet company, in which they contacted the owners of the
website. Who asked for 5000 dollars from me for it back. Its not mine.
I'm not associated with this site at all. They have had it up for years now.

Chef

Comment: I was under the impression that a low-carb pasta was finally
available to assist in maintaining a healthy blood glucose
level.........while this would be great for low-carb dieters, it is
essential for diabetics. Dreamfield's Pasta claims to have a digestible
carbohydrate load of 5 mg per 1/8 of the package produce, or one serving.
I am seeing studies now, however, which seem to refute this claim by
showing that ingestion of equal amounts of Dreamfield's or of regular
pasta both increase blood sugar levels to the same degree. Could you
please investigate these contradictory reports so that diabetic
individuals needing to know if they are protected will not be increasing
their chances of limb amputation or blindness by any false claims?

Comment: Whoever went to the trouble of purposely altering the left handed
salute photo of the Obama's should be publicly embarrassed. There is
enough credible evidence, we don't need to manufacture anything! Do you
have a way of identifying the guilty party?

Comment: I am wondering when and if anyone is going to do something about
all of these scams out here as to me I feel that something needs to be
done about them because there are poeple out here trying to work and earn
a honest living and do need the jobs as well as the income and I am a
Christian woman who knows that God says vengence is his but I feel that
these kinds of scams have got to stop and I will pray that God help me to
do soemthing with all of them so people can work and make an honest living
and the ones who desperately need the work as far as the jobs becasue to
me it makes the whole mystery shopping jobs all look bad and not
legitimate and to those comapnies who are legitimate so that he does
something about this as it has gone on long enough for sure and some
actions have to be taken care of and actually have soemthing be done with
it all. It will be ahrd to know which ones to trust and which ones not to
trust but to me they all should be trustworthy and legitimate as well.
please help me to stop these scams and fight back now as there are people
who really need this kind of work or job as well as the income too
