I was just looking at the two toolkits Suzi has listed (and her join date) and wondering what garage sale she went to!

Her carbs are offered by Erik Black on October 13th...

Her other ads seem to be lifted from the samba site.

SCAM is the first thing that came to mind when I saw the toolkits.

Probably some ugly criminal using a disarming name like Suzi as part of the ruse.

Yeah, the scammers on Pelican have all been using strange British sounding names, practically calling themselves David Copperfield, or Oliver Twist. I guess they figure a guy with a fancy British name isn't going to rip you off.
I always need stories for my Barn Find column in the magazine, if you have a good story to share, please let me know.
