If Only it Were True

Why do people think we are going to fall for their tricks?

This email appeared today from someone I don't even know.

Who would recommend me as a project manager for such a large project?

Whilst I am capable of co ordinating the odd small building project I would think, if someone was going to recommend me for a job they might at least ask if I was interested first or if I had time????

Dear Sir/Madam,

You have been recommended as a reliable foreign investor and project manager. I am therefore seeking your

cooperation in building a Tourist Hotel or Real Estate in your country. I am sorry if this is not completely in line

with your profession. I need an experienced person like you to assist me set up,develop the project and assume

responsibility of ownership as chairman but will be bringing in profit /distribute profit monthly or annually.I shall

give you more information. Please get back to me immediately on my

private email:

Best regards, Gov. James Ibori.

NOW where do I start:

1. I wouldn't be the foreign investor if I was doing something in my own country!

2. What skill set does this person assume I have that is going to be useful for this type of project?

3. Dear sir/madam! If I have been recommended for a task wouldn't you think they would know what gender I am?

At best I am putting this one into the potential scam box and deleting it...So don't get caught!

Peace and Tranquillity

What is it about Platypus Park Country Retreat that is so relaxing?

Why does it attract people looking for a quiet relaxing place to stay at an affordable price?

It just does!
Set on 40 acres or 17.5 hectares Platypus Park Country Retreat in Bridport Tasmania just seems to be magnet when it comes to attracting the right sort of guests.
Perhaps it is the name, perhaps it is the location, perhaps it is the friendly voice on the end of the phone, perhaps it is the laid back 5th generation hosts..... Perhaps it is all these things.

Some remarkable people stay at Platypus Park Country Retreat

Thank you to Ian Clarke, a world renown creator of stringed instruments, and his delightful wife, who recently stayed at Platypus Park Country Retreat on a brief visit to Tasmania. Ian has been creating "stringed instruments of distinction" for quiet some time. From 1974 to 1977 Ian trained at the Newark School of Violin Making, graduating with "distinction", he was the first of a number of Australians to graduate from Newark.

Ian is one of Australia's most highly regarded violin makers, with his instruments being used all around the world. Professional orchestra musician, Anna Roach of TSO, has played a Clarke Viola since 1992. You can find out more about Ian and his quality instruments at
