How to Check if a Hoax is Valid

The Snopes website is a very useful web site that looks into hoaxes urban myths etc, posted on the Internet to see if they are true or not
According to Snopes “The “Can you hear me?” scam for now seems to be more a suggestion of a hypothetical crime scheme than a real one that is actually robbing victims of money.”
It is always a good idea to check on Snopes before forwarding warnings, If they describe it as a hoax or “not proven” it is probably best not to pass it on.

Reply to Brian V. Regarding Snopes.com:

This is the entire Snopes team. David and Barbara Mikkelson pictured above; are from San Fernando Valley of California. They started their website  ‘Snopes’  about 13 years ago. After a few years it began gaining popularity as people believed it to be unbiased and neutral. But over the past couple of years people started asking questions when ‘Snopes’ was proven wrong in a number of their conclusions. There were also criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the ‘true’ bottom of various issues, but rather asserting their beliefs in controversial issues.

 Brian, what evidence do you have to suggest Snopes is trustworthy?  It is run by a husband and wife team – that’s right, no big office of investigators scouring public records in Washington, no researchers studying historical stacks in libraries, no team of lawyers reaching a consensus on current caselaw. No, Snopes.com is just a mom-and-pop operation that was started by two people who have absolutely no formal background or experience in investigative research. A simple review of their “fact-checking” reveals a strong tendency to explain away criticisms towards liberal politicians and public figures while giving conservatives the hatchet job. Religious stories and issues are similarly shown no mercy. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax or True, and yet you can go to Youtube and find many video examples with proof of  Snopes  getting it wrong, exposing Snopes’ errors and biases. Here are links to some articles about their operation.

Police and The Better Business Bureau documented cases of the “Can you hear me?” scam as reported on at these sites, with award winning investigative teams, something Snopes does not have. Despite the Snopes denials, these calls are now being reported in Virginia – with criminals asking the question, “Can you hear me?” “Usually it has a familiar area code,” Officer Jo Ann Hughes with the Norfolk Police Department told WTKR-TV. “That kind of warms you up,” Hughes told the station, warning that those on the receiving end should hang up the phone immediately. In many cases, scammers will play back a person’s verbal confirmation and threaten to take legal action if they try to deny the charges.

Services- Physiotherapist recommended

I highly recommend Sylvia Bowyer, physiotherapist.  After 5 or 6 sessions I’ve had a permanent reversal of chronic neck and upper back stress-induced arthritis and have found it no longer cracks or locks, this, after living with the issue for 10 years now, notably painful for the last 5 years.
This has also improved my sleep as I’d often wake with my neck locked and have to crack it to relieve the pain to get back to sleep.
Sylvia practices a gentle yet extremely powerful technique called the Bowen Technique.  I’d highly recommend this for any soft tissue work and also bone realignment amongst many other issues including a range of chronic illness, chronic fatigue etc. and would definitely suggest this style  above and beyond any harsher styles of therapy that force the body back into shape.  Sylvia is truly gifted and to get such results without any pain or discomfort, just relaxation, for the client is just incredible.
For the past 5 years I’ve tried many forms of physical therapy for my arthritis: different styles of massage , another form of physio (which gave relief for a week only and never resolved my neck issues), three different chiros, and absolutely none of them have been able to work on my arthritis, so I just assumed I would have to live with it.  It’s been over a month now since I started with Sylvia and even though I’ve been under work pressure, the stress just hasn’t sunk back into my neck and shoulders again.  AMAZING!

If you want any details from me on my experience, you can email me at: sjanedresser@gmail.com

Sylvia works in Laguna Beach area, Torrox Costa Tues to Fri

from medieval manuscripts to the silver screen –

all this in less than an hour !

All Welcome; Meeting Starts at 11.00 am.

Please arrive in plenty of time.

New book available by local author:

This romantic tale is about the history of one of the ‘pueblos blancos’ of the Axarquía.

It is a history of Spain, the region and the pueblo of Sedella, factual events interspersed with fictional stories to bring life to the known facts.
The protagonist of the story is the village itself as it travels through the ages – from the Bronze Age to the present day. The narrative includes the Gothic period, the Roman age, Arab Spain and the reconquest, the Civil War amongst others. One of the chapters is a story of the myth of how the village got its name, an account recorded on the shield of the village – ‘SÉ DE ELLA’.
You can now buy signed copies from me at home in Sedella or in the bar in the village.

You can email me on john.sedella @ gmail.com or phone on 951069997 to arrange a time. I hope to have copies in local bookshops in the future.
It can also be purchased from Amazon as both an EBook and paperback – www.amazon.co.uk/-/e/B00IKIYBJ0.
More details of all my books can be seen on my website at www.johnhardybooks.com
