Had an interesting call from Florida on Sat. Telling me I had won this wonderful trip to Florida, inlcuding visits to Disneyland, Universal Studios, staying in the Hilton Hotel, all paid for.

Caller knew my full postal address, fact I am retired, that I had been to a rally in USA, where I am supposed to have completed this form, so winning the competition.

I had no recollection of entering any competition, so became suspicious. Allowed caller to extol the wonders of Florida, telling him I was going to be over there in June next year anyway.

He then went on to tell me that I all needed to do was give them my credit cad numbers, as confirmation that I was who he thought I was.

I told him I can verify that I am the person he was talking to, so as he had all these details, he must have my card details as well !

He became a littel agitated, and said I could not qualify if I did not give the card numbers. And if I declined, the offer wojld be given to the next person on the list. How many winners can win first prize ?

I wished the next winner well, and bid farewell.

What I was concerned about was the amount of information he had about me.

So, run a GOOGLE search using your name.

Mine came up several times, giving out details of my business & hobbies.

From that information, my phone number was disclosed.

GOOGLE the number, and it will tell who it is allocated to, and address.

So, big brother has truly arrived, just a little bit late after 1984 !

Just tried the "google yourself" thing - amazed how many Tony Joneses there are, even if I narrow it down to "UK sites" and add "+baptist" !!


I seem to be involved in churches all over the country, and have apparently written several books I've never heard of!
