Follow up to Fraud Alert June 18, 2015:
Frustrated and hopeless are the two words that come to mind when trying to abort these crooks from committing the crime they are attempting.
1) I called GoDaddy whose is the registrar of the crooks domain. Spoke to someone who although tried to be helpful fell quite short of being helpful. He did give me an email address to send my complaint. “firstname.lastname@example.org”. This was the email that I sent them and below is their response:
I have been notified that someone is pretending to be me and is attempting to commit fraud using my name and a similar email address. My domain is SoundBroker.com and they are using SoundBrokerinc.com They have my address, and federal tax and my duns number. I have attached an email that I just received from someone that was calling me that received the email. Please investigate this and shut these crooks down ASAP before they steal money from some unsuspecting victim. Please confirm receipt of this email.
I followed their instructions and emailed the IC3- FYI: Their form is long and asks for too much information as it is totally generic. I clicked submit and this is the splash screen that appeared:
Almost immediately I received this email:

Just moved my WordPress Blog to JanLandy.com and am hoping that this will finally be the motivation I have been looking for to write a daily or if not daily, weekly, or if not weekly, monthly blog.
Lets see what happens. Today is day one. June 1, 2015.
This week I had another birthday, it’s a good time to think about your mortality. I thought it was kind of clever to think about your mortality and not mine. However, that’s not true, what I meant to say is my mortality.
For those of you who know how old I am, then you will look at this photo and say man he looks good for his age, for those of you who don’t know how old I just turned, then you’ll just think guy looks pretty good.
I feel pretty amazing, thinking about it that two years ago I was using a walker because I had back surgery. I feel very lucky and very fortunate.
Why is it that whenever we go to celebrate our birthdays with someone or a group of friends all of the things that we celebrate with our either immoral, illegal, or fattening.
I mean here we are celebrating the achievement of one reaching a certain age and their friends and family acknowledging by their presents, their presence, and their participation by joining and wishing A person happy birthday, and that you mean something beneficial to my life or in my life.
So my question is why is it that we want to take our friends add to an amazingly nice restaurant with nice and fattening foods, instead of joining that person, on a run or swim in the pool or a visit to the gym, or watching a documentary on TV about good health.
This year, I had someone make me a pound of cookies, which I must confess were delicious and I ate them all, another friend took me out to a pizza restaurant, A group of friends join me at PF Changs, a Chinese restaurant, and finally a good friend took me to Hank’s steakhouse.
Here’s the kicker, in the last six months, I have done everything I possibly could to get an excellent physical condition. First I started going to a counselor and lost 70 pounds, then I started to vigorous workout program, and thirdly started playing tennis again 2 to 3 times a week.
So I wonder why, that my good friends decided that I need to celebrate by gaining back some of that hard fought weight that I lost. I must confess though I had a great time and the food was delicious.
And I also wonder why celebrations are not as much fun without the activities being illegal, immoral, or fattening. I love the good life.
This is what I looked like before I decided to take my life back
Today, I will be traveling on a plane again. Seems I am spending quite a bit of time in them these days.
I could not have planned a better time to have visited NY. The weather was a great surprise on how warm and dry it was. No snow or rain. Amazingly good weather and totally contrary to the normal NY winter weather. I wish I could take credit for it.
I had one of the best times and accomplished a ton, from business meetings, visits with friends and family and seeing the sites, eating great food, and not to mention getting to see the number one play on broadway. Thank you New York the place I was born. I understand what it means “You can take the boy out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the boy”. I will take my NY accent with me proudly.
I was watching TiVo and CNN and Brian Tong did a “How To” on Mobile Phone blogging, I was particularly interested in the iPhone apps and of course WordPress has an app that supports the iPhone. I downloaded it on the spot and found that I need to start an account, so here I am, and so I am addicted.
Tonight I refuse to stay in the house all by myself, when the whole town of Las Vegas is celebrating the death of Jesus. I think I might join them and go to the Rockabilly event over at The Orleans.
If you haven’t done so already, read my profile. I can wait.
