The Conspiracy Theory Of All Conspiracy Theories?

By Breaking News

Bible The Conspiracy Theory of all Conspiracy Theories?

Conspiracy theory: this term has become more widely used and understood recently as “information” about what really happened during certain events or at certain times in history that have come to light.
The funny thing seems to be that more often than not the “official story” or “talking points” that are put out by the news media, government spokesperson, and so on seem increasingly to be the real “conspiracy theories!” What are billed to us by these same talking heads as “conspiracy theorists”, ” tinfoil hats” and so on are often the ones who are dispensing the REAL FACTS. We know this is not the case 100% of the time but I think we can agree that, especially in recent history, this seems more frequently to be the case.
Let’s first take a look at two cases of this phenomenon straight out of today’s headlines to prove the point and then we will look at quite possibly “The greatest conspiracy theory ever”.
Case number 1.
THE BOSTON BOMBING

“Official Story”

Two lone “Muslim terrorists” placed a simple bomb made of a pressure cooker into a backpack and planted it at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Afterward they apparently robbed a 7-11 convenience store, got in a gun battle with police, the younger brother ran over the older brother in an attempt to escape, the younger brother then gets in a second gun battle with police where he was trapped inside of a boat and then in an apparent suicide attempt shoots himself in the throat!
WOW, that sounds like something straight out of Hollywood! As it turns out, it might be just that.

What’s On Your Mind • New Scam – Beware

By Frank Jenkins The following was sent to me by a friend:

Just when you think you’ve heard it all. Here comes another scam.

WOW, WHAT NEXT?

This scam is very clever. Be very careful out there! One could easily fall
for this – beware of people bearing gifts

There is a new and clever credit card scam. Please circulate this. Someone
it happened to says it works like this:

Wednesday a week ago, I had a phone call from someone who said that he was
from some outfit called: “Express Couriers” asking if I was going to be
home because there was a package for me, and the caller said that the
delivery would arrive at my home in roughly an hour. And sure enough, about an
hour later, a uniformed delivery man turned up with a beautiful basket of
flowers and wine. I was very surprised since it did not involve any special
occasion or holiday, and I certainly didn’t expect anything like it. Intrigued
about who would send me such a gift, I inquired as to who the sender is.
The deliveryman’s reply was, he was only delivering the gift package, but
allegedly a card was being sent separately; (the card has never arrived!).
There was also a consignment note with the gift.

He then went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol, there
was a $3.50 “delivery charge” as proof that he had actually delivered the
package to an adult, and not just left it on the doorstep where it could be
stolen or taken by anyone.

This sounded logical and I offered to pay him cash. He then said that the
company required the payment to be by credit or debit card only so that
everything is properly accounted for.

My husband, who by this time was standing beside me, pulled his wallet out
of his pocket with the credit/debit card, and ‘John’, the “delivery man”,
asked my husband to swipe the card on the small mobile card machine which
had a small screen and keypad where Frank was also asked to enter the card’s
PIN and security number. A receipt was printed out and given to us.

To our horrible surprise, between Thursday and the following Monday,
$4,000 had been charged/withdrawn from our credit/debit account at various ATM
machines.

It appeared that somehow the “mobile credit card machine” which the
deliveryman carried now had all the info necessary to create a “dummy” card with
all our card details after my husband swiped our card and entered the
requested PIN and security number.

Upon finding out about the illegal transactions on our card, we
immediately notified the bank which issued us the card, and our credit/debit account
was closed.

We also personally went to the Police, where it was confirmed that it is
definitely a scam because several households had been similarly hit.

WARNING: Be wary of accepting any “surprise gift or package”, which you
neither expected nor personally ordered, especially if it involves any kind
of payment as a condition of receiving the gift or package. Also, never
accept anything if you do not personally know or there is no proper
identification of who the sender is.

Above all, the only time you should give out any personal credit/debit
card information is when you yourself initiated the purchase or transaction!

Pass this on, it may just prevent someone else from being swindled. No
