Satellite Data is extrapolated based on well known and mathmatically quantifiable conversion formulas not some random application of guesses and adjustments done to surface temps which, against all statistical odds, happens overwhelming in one direction.

I tell them I wired the money and then give them a fake number to claim it. Then when they contact me, I tell them I turned two numbers around and give them another fake number. Love jacking with them. Sent one into a strip club in London to collect the money I owed him since I would was in town and would be there.

So would you agree that Taylor's article is misleading? While you reserve judgment on whether total polar ice has reduced for the perfectly valid reason that you want modeling to be better verified, he looks only at 2D polar ice extent and tells readers that Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat. He knows full well that ice extent is not the full story. (And he probably knows full well…

I doubt you'll see the police do much unless real money is lost. You have to get a warrant to trace the #. Then you're likely across state lines or countries and all they can do is report to another police dept to take investigate and care of it. And if no money has been lost there's not exactly a big payoff for them to investigate. I'm not sure attempted theft is even a crime.

Quincy grandparents center of a phone scam

Scammer used grandson to ask for money

A Quincy elderly couple received a call from someone posing as their grandson.  The scammer knew the grandson's first name, the grandson's cell phone number and knew the grandfather's middle name.  He also appeared to be calling from the grandson's cell phone number. 

The scammer stated that the couple’s grandson had been in an accident at an Illinois university, damaged a house and injured himself.  The scammer acting as the grandson asked for the couple to wire approximately $1,000 to Lima, Peru, which is where he said the owner of the damaged University house lived.

When the grandfather tried to call his grandson's cell phone from his landline phone, the scammer answered.  When the grandfather left to wire money, he tried to call the grandson again from his cell phone. The scammer did not answer this time, but neither did the grandson.  When the grandfather tried to call the police officer that the scammer said was handling the accident, the call wouldn’t go through.

The elderly couple arrived at the Western Union in County Market to transfer money. However, the employee told the couple the situation was a scam and refused to wire the money.  The elderly couple then contacted the grandson's father. Previously, the scammer who was posing as their grandson told them not to contact the father. The couple called anyway, and found out their grandson was okay, was attending school and there was no accident. 

Quincy Police say it appears the scammer used an application on a cellphone to call spof the victims and possibly answer some other calls from numbers.  However, it did not work when the victims called the same numbers using a different phone line.
