New one for me

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Hmmm. I suppose if I printed and sent enough out some people would surely pay them rather than question them. :)


On another note years ago I got a parking ticket from a little suburb of chicago. Called them and the story was the meter maid was old with bad eye sight and would write down the wrong license number.... It was their story! lol

BTW, it's a scam - they don't email you tickets.

Sounds "scammy" to me. I'm guessing most places of real local gov'ts (village, town. metropolis) would have their mail directed to the Clerk of Courts, or something similar, with a real address, instead of just a p.o. box. I'd request the traffic officer's name , badge #, etc. and all kinds of info.....................just to see if they respond. Or, mail an envelope with a blank piece of paper to the "address" provided, and see if "they" respond.
