Maybe you didn't see the whole conversation. I never once was rude or attacked her until she first got nasty with me and called me an egomaniac who didn't belong here. I'm afraid CC is guilty of projection. I never asked her to leave. I never said I didn't like her, or that I wanted her to quit posting her links. I actually complimented her on her list until they became a solid wall of repetitious and never ending text. At that point, I politely asked her to post it every hour or so and not many times in a row. I asked her to use the link feature once in a while instead of re-posting the same thing 5 times an hour. That link feature doesn't go to another page off-site, but simply to a specific post. Simple as that. The next thing I knew, she was basically telling me to shut up and take a leap, she was here before me and I had no right to even make such a suggestion.

So. You can have this site. If you're o.k. with letting someone turn it into a static web page, knock yourself out. But don't fall for her lies. If you can find one instance of my asking her to leave or to stop posting her link page, I'll personally send you a new $50 bill. I'll check back in the next 24 hours. Other than that, I've had it with this nonsense. Plenty of local folks around here that need help.

Maggie, I'm happy to hear there are some windows opening up for you. Since that guy is in Canada, perhaps he does have some legitmate need for help in this country. I hope that's the case. $500/week does sound like a lot for that kind of work, especially if it's 5 hours and not the 20 hours you had mentioned before. It's pretty darn good for 20 hours too though. But to some people, $500 is pocket change. Here's hoping he's one of those people.

Sorry Christmas Cat got all bent out of shape and left over a simple technical issue, and more than a little disappointed that she tried to shift blame and lied about my wanting her to leave. It bothers me to see people who claim to be Godly yet lie so easily and with so little compunction.

Anyway, good luck with everything. I think I'm outta' here for good. I don't need all the drama and backbiting and it's too depressing to read firsthand accounts of what 35 years of trickle down economics has done to this nation. Even if the web had been around then, this site would probably have withered away for lack of traffic in the 70's or early 80's. Really sad to see the depths to which we've sunk. So take care and the best to you in whatever opportunity comes your way.

Hi keepingthefaithinfl,

What you say makes a lot of sense. We will reconsider our advice to Christmas Cat about how to post her links.

And we will try to come up with some improvement that will make it easier for members to hide (or "mute") the posts of another member if they don't like what they see (for whatever reason).

Thank you for your feedback!

Best,
AidpageTeam

Sailorman 13 ,Although I need the money I do not need to go to jail for it ,When I speak with him today I will ask him many questions so I can be a better worker for him.But realistically no one gets 500.00 dollars a week for 5 hrs work or maybe they do .He is in Canada and will call today. I have also been offered a job doing office and clerical work I will speaking with him today.and a minister of a church called and said the church is taking a vote on the church secretary job and will let me know .Yesterday I signed up two people with Direct TV and it was the only reason they didn't let me go and the Walmart managers asked if I would like to cashier for them. I am so glad to have a couple pf possibilities I had a nice dinner at taco bell 2.00 and got my doggies some food and a treat .It felt so good .and even better that maybe I can save the farm .Thank You for your intelligent input.I will try to be careful.The interview I went on the other day was so creepy .it was way out in the middle of no where, in these old storage sheds.For shipping and receiving clerk , But when I arrived the office smelled so badly and there were some pretty rough fellows there . there business was 10,000.00 dollars a day only 2 trucks a day came in and went out and they couldn't really say what all they shipped they just needed someone to handle the books .I am glad they decided on someone else .Thank You again Sailorman13

My first check for deposit would be 2000.00 and then 5000.00 and up after that I would be breaking it up for him sending money around the globe kind of like shipping and receiving of money .Sounds odd I thought a personal assistant kept track of phone calls and appointments and such .Maybe he needs a personal banker? I will talk to him today he is at one of his art galleries in Canada .Oh I wanted to thank you and everyone for all your help . Some how ,Some way I came up with the funds to save the farm .I have the payment for today .It just all came together and I will be speaking with someone about a possible position with their company Office work, clerical stuff today. And the minister of a large church has also let me know they will taking a vote on whether or not to hire me for the church secretary. it would be nice if I got one .The minister is female and she sounds very nice . I am catholic baptized by my belief is that where ever God is where I am.I look for the similarities. Today is my day of f from walmart .They did not let me go because I signed up 2 people so I am still selling Direct TV for now .I am so grateful for everyone support .This has been the lowest point of my life losing so much You and everyone's kindness has given me a reason to want to wake up .Thank You and Everyone here.Blessings to you and to all you love.MaggieM

Boo sailorman13, I think you are way out of line attacking The Christmas Cat like that. The Christmas Cat has so much compassion, consideration in the selfless act of reaching out to so many on here. I for one am not bothered, nor offended by The Christmas Cats posts, but comforted knowing someone was here, taking the time to greet and reach out to help so many. Save your rants to for the scamming spammers that post so often. The Christmas Cat is far from egotistical, if anyone is getting a perverse satisfaction it is you with your ranting.

Dear Aidpage Team, I know I am not The Christmas Cat, and I get why you think links should be posted to another post. From experience I can say a lot of people who pass through this site are not willing to click to other posts to find information. They want it there, given to them and easy to understand. I'm not sure if they don't trust other links or if they are just not taking the time to utilize the site, but they will ask over and over again the same questions or similar requests. You give them a link where there are other helpful posts and they don't want to go to it and read it.
Maybe it's stress, or impatience, I dunno. I think Sailormans post and complaint about/to The Christmas Cat was just unproductive and does not reflect what your regular users feel.
I look forward when I come on to see that The Christmas Cat, Woman In A Shoe or a few other regulars, have been on, have stepped up, greeted new posters personally and reached out to help them. It's very comforting, and makes Aidpage a place I like to visit and connect with others on.

We did not ask you to stop posting on Aidpage. We only suggested a better way to organize and share the useful links you post.

We just try to be helpful. There is really a better way to organize those links in a few posts... and then share links to these posts instead of reposting the full posts every time. It is simply a better way.

What is the problem with this. We don't understand.

Best,

I suppose it could be legitimate, but I'd be careful. What he wants you to do is exactly what people do when they launder money and have to split up lots of money between multiple accounts in order to prevent the bank from having to report large deposits to the government. If that's what he's doing, it would become pretty obvious the first day or two but by then, it's too late for you to avoid being involved. Of course, until it would become obvious to any reasonable person that something's fishy, you really can't be accused (or at least convicted) of doing anything illegal. Unless the law is hot on his trail, you could get out long before anyone knew you were involved and before you lost the ability to plausibly claim you didn't know he was up to no good.

I would ask him about those art galleries and verify their existence and his role, whether it's owner or manager or what. Consider where this guy lives. Where are his galleries? Why would he need multiple accounts in your area? Who and where will he be wanting you to send money orders to? Why doesn't he just use wire transfers or electronic funds transfers? How big is a typical deposit. Banks are required to report deposits of $10K or more. Money launderers generally make deposits in the $8-9K range to avoid suspicion.

But maybe he has a lot of local galleries and pays for purchases or forwards payment to artists via money orders. That's still kind of strange and it wouldn't account for the need for multiple bank accounts, but it's the only possibility I can think of now. From what little I know now, I can't see any real legitimate reason to shuffle money around in that particular way. You definitely need more information.
