Apparently I am a Private Investigator and I want me to send $2,500.00 to myself to pay Chinese contractors who seem to have uncovered some skeletons in my closet.

My Caller ID log shows that I have received phone calls from myself. The spoofers and spamers are getting creative.

At least it wasn't that Nigerian Prince who needed your bank account information, SSID, Credit Card and your Mother's Maiden Name.

Come to think of it - I wonder if that poor fella found someone reliable enough to send his money too...

I recently got an email from, of all people, James Comey at the FBI.

It assured me that it was safe to respond to the genuine offer of money coming my way.

Yeah right, of course it was a scammerspammer.

But it was the most creative one I've ever seen.

Some lady kept sending money to her scammer after the reveal because she liked him.

A couple months ago I received a phone message from the Chinese Center for Disease Control & Prevention

But I'm curious, if you attempt to extort yourself has a crime been committed?

I don't think it's a Federal crime unless you're across a state line from yourself.

I send emails to myself all the time. It's often easier to download a pic from my phone with an email than it is to find the cord, plug it in, wait for the phone to be recognised, and finally copy the picture to my desktop. Also an easy way to send me a link to a site found on my phone or laptop at work.

As for emails from myself as a P.I. that hasn't happened yet and I feel sorry for any fool tasked with following me. Because I am very much a creature of habit. Get home from work and take the dog for a 2 mile walk. Once he's tuckered out and empty I then go out for another 4 mile walk and I pity anyone following me on foot, because I walk at a 13:45 minute pace when not walking the dog. On the weekends it's Krogers and Home Depot on Saturday and on Sunday it's off to the range for 6 to 8 rounds of Skeet.


I've stopped counting.

No, my shrink told me not to answer the phone if I see that I am calling myself.

I have had that happen and regret no answering on the chance it was future me calling to tell me something really critical
