Free Talisman For 500 people


In the Sun newspaper today 24 August 2007 on pg 36 (The Classified Section), "famous clairvoyant" Marie Callas offers 500 talisman for free. This offer is made through an advertisement approximately half a page large.

"I am offering you a genuine talisman which could change your life"
(And it won't cost you a cent) she was quoted saying.

According to the advertisement, all you have to do to obtain this talisman is to fill up a form with personal details and answer a list of questions, then send the completed form to a PO Box addressed in Singapore.

Wait ! Before you rush out and get the Sun newspaper, please read what the Western Australian Government for Consumer and Employment Protection has to say about her -
Read about Marie Callas

Please submit your comments about this.

It is a P.O BOX in Singapore? Do you have a link or scan version of that ads? I would like to show it in my blog.

Yeah Ive heard of this talisman thing before. There are also others, of course. So, Caveat Emptor !. Nice blog, taking a rather different slant.

I hope no one has fallen for the scam. Bitch!

Hi,

I've been following your blog for a while and I think you're too good for this.

Frankly, I like to read your own creative writings more than the long paragraphs quoted from The Star :)
.... especially the earlier ones about the "No Chicken" hotel, the urinal and the toilet bowl .... darn funny/creative.

Why don't you just go all out and create your own site/domain ... and ur own 'brand'. :)

I've got a couple of other non-blog sites... if you decide to have your own domain, I'll be happy to link to you and promote ur site.

Cheers. Have a nice weekend.

wow thanks for the info.. i wonder how many people actually fall into this scam..

The Malaysian Life on August 24, 2007 at 6:05 PM said...

Vincent - thanks for the support and compliments. I must have the right "mood" and be in the right frame of mind to do the creative stuff. I'm not particularly ready to brand my site yet. Will do, when the time is right. BTW I just posted a long comment on your blog - the difference between a warranty and a guarantee.

Sunshine - people fall into scams all the time. I hope my post can alert some people. Anyhow, Ive visited and posted at both your blogs. Your post here links to your old blog - shouldn't it be to your new blog ?
