The perfect scam, a Craig's List story about concert tickets!
In todays world of scams you have to be more vigilant than ever! But sometimes things slip through the cracks no matter how careful you are. Earlier today I was scammed by someone that posted a Craig's List ad selling Dave Matthew's Band tickets. Their concert is tonight at SPAC (7:30PM), the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY. The tickets were for Section 1 Row J. Right behind the pit! AMAZING SEATS!!! I was one of the first people to view the ad after it was posted and I called right away to grab two of the tickets. It took a turn for the worst shortly after. The scammer called himself "Rich" and "Rich" was selling four tickets. One of the phone numbers he used was 313-878-7078. Listen to my podcast to hear the entire story in high detail. Everything unfolded earlier this afternoon. I want to help others avoid the same mistake I made, let's create scam awareness together. Sit back, relax, listen and enjoy!
Oh by the way, for search engine purposes here is "Rich's" other telephone number involved in his Craig's List scam =), 770-906-2414.
Flashback to the 80's and 90's
Sometimes inspiration finds you when you least expect it. Join me in this exciting podcast episode as I walk us back to the era of growing up in the 80’s and 90’s. The pre-internet childhood and what we did for fun. Life was simply simple. I like saying that lol. Say it to yourself or out loud and you’ll feel it resonate like I did. The inspiration behind this episode came after a friend of mine rediscovered or resurrected his blog on WordPress called Totally Bogus Dude. I forgot all about a couple of blogs that I wrote on his page a number of years ago. I’m not really into blogging. I would rather talk, I’m a talker. That’s why I have a podcast. But occasionally I'll make a blog. Sit back, relax, clear your mind and listen to my show. This was a fun episode to make. Enjoy!
New York State Vanity Plates!
A few weeks ago I was looking up vanity plates on the New York State Department of Motor Vehicle website and to my surprise PODCASTS was available! I had to get it. I could not believe that combination was available, I was shocked. Within a few minutes I ordered it and my transaction was complete. They arrived in the mail last Friday! They looked absolutely beautiful. This is the story about my vanity plates as well as other plate combinations I found that you may find very interesting. Oh, I also talk about how accomplished I felt taking the old registration sticker off and putting the new one on perfectly! Anyone that has done this knows exactly what I'm talking about lol. You only get one shot to get it on right.
A Campfire and Train Ride
What a beautiful night to have a campfire down at the creek. The railroad tracks are right behind us and the dark old rail tunnel isn't very far away. The moon is so bright, the air is so cold and crisp and the water is flowing pretty good in the creek from all the rain we had recently. With a little imagination you'll be able to feel the heat from the fire, the smell of the train and see the reflection of the moon as you listen and relax to this podcast episode.
Captured Rail Trail Audio
Recently I took some of my podcasting equipment to the Rail Trail in Voorheesville, NY. It was a gorgeous night. Plus it was nice and quiet. The sky was clear with a big bright full moon and a great view of all the stars. There's a perfect little area where I can setup my stuff. A big pavilion and a little one. I was under the little one near the railroad tracks. It would be an amazing spot to interview people. It has a lot of foot traffic and bike riders. Maybe I'll do that in a future podcast! For this podcast I used the Aston Origin microphone, it's a high-performance cardioid condenser mic. Perfect for picking up ASMR sounds off in the distance and up close to the mic. It was my first time using this mic to record all the sounds. I made adjustments to the mic as I recorded.
Cobra Kai on Netflix is AMAZING!!!
Cobra Kai on Netflix is amazing! It has so many moving parts. Tons of references to The Karate Kid movie from 1984. The writers have done an amazing job with the series. You can't afford to miss even one minute of this show. I have one more episode to watch in Season 1. This is my review and thoughts so far up to this point in the show. Special guest appearance by Bridget G. with her Cobra Kai commentary here at Huba Studios!
Helped me avoid a Craigslist Ticket Scam
I just was about to buy some tickets on Craigslist and searched the sellers number to double check it was legit. Saw it on this podcast, listened to it, and noticed the Craigslist post was almost word for word at the one in the podcast. Just saved me from a scam and a huge headache! Thanks!
