“Good morning. According to our system, you are likely to have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. This means that you now need to self-isolate for 7 days and take a COVID-19 test.”
“OK. Can you tell me who that person was?”
“I’m not able to tell you that. That is confidential information.”
“Right. Um… so ….”
“But you do need to be tested within the next 72 hours. So can I just get the best mailing address so that we can send a kit to you?”
“Ok (gives address)”
“Thank you – and I just need to take a payment card so that we can finalize this and send the kit to you.”
“Sorry – a payment card? I thought this was all free?”
“No – I’m afraid not. There is a one-time fee of $50 for the kit and test results. Could you read off the long card number for me, please, when you’re ready.”
“No – that’s not right.”
“I’m afraid it is. Can you give me the card number, please – this is very important, and there are penalties for not complying.”
This is how scammers work. And vulnerable people will fall for it!
Don’t fall for it! Please forward this post to your contacts.
If this prevents one person from being scammed, it is worth sharing.
I have a friend who lives in Panama and knows, first hand, about Chinese vehicles.
“You may watch this and ask, where in the Hell are the Chinese autos? As you will see this post takes off like a race horse and passes everyone around 2010. The Chinese cars and trucks are all over the world except the U.S. They use such substandard building ethics. They do not meet DOT or EPA standards. We have had two Chinese trucks here in Panama and the windows do not protect you from the sun. No UV protection in the glass. We had to have them tinted. Everything is made as cheap as possible. The prices on a new one is about one third to half the price of a U.S. one.”
“I thank my friend for this information. My prediction: When Joe Biden and the Gang of American-Hating Democrats are settled in and comfortable: They will have zero shame when they PUBLICLY crawl comfortably back into bed with China. They will do whatever is necessary to reduce our standards and eliminate the Trump tariffs so that the Chinese vehicles, like everything else made in China, become one of our largest imports. Volvo and the Buick Envision are already Chinese owned.
I hope you will take time to watch this little race one more time. Keep your eye on the year 1997…watch Communist China take over the world of auto production. Then keep your eye on America..it’s coming.”
