Caveat Procurator: Employers Beware Of Perfect Resumes Hiding A Scam! Part 2

These massive floor space purchases was not all she was announcing. Sally had this major sports star who had been after her for years, sending her first class tickets to her and the kids so they could fly across the country, stay at the Hyatt, and have front seats to the championship series, but she kept turning him down as she didn't want to have a sordid affair. Then she had this former employer who was offering her a six figure salary and a company Mercedes but she kept turning him down because she thought he was after her body. Then there was this golf tournament last year where she was sitting next to a major television star who told her that he had a home in the city and a half ownership in a major local "potential client" business...

This last one got Roger's attention as having this particular TV star be a part of the trade show would be a major coup, especially since he apparently had a home right in the city! So Roger dialed the number of his agent at the William Morris Agency in New York. Roger explained the connection with the agent's client, and asked if the star would be interested in participating in the trade show. The William Morris Agent thought Roger was insane. He had been the star's agent for years, knew exactly where he went whenever he left his house, and promptly informed Roger that not only did the star not have a home in his city, nor a part interest in any business there, but had never even visited that Canadian province in his life!

At this point, Roger started putting two and two together and realized that he had a problem on his hands. He called Sally and informed her that he wanted that cell phone company contract or he was going to erase the booking. She began to backpedal and claimed that Jay had been holding on to the national cell company contract since he was in arbitration with his partner at the local cell phone retailer! Roger did a little digging and discovered that Jay's partner had been trying to get him out of the business as Jay had been caught once too many times with his hand in the cookie jar.

So Roger started calling around. The national manager of Jay's national cell company, the guy Jay claimed had approved the big floor space buy, said he had never talked to Jay about any trade show and certainly had not approved any floor space. The other companies who were "penciled in" also had never agreed to any buys, and none of them had ever even met with Sally! However, other, much smaller Ma & Pa companies were calling. They wanted confirmations of their booth space which Sally had sold them... at less than 10% of the official cost! Then individuals started calling. They wanted to know when they could show up at the office to pick up their sales materials. Sally had apparently hired them on behalf of Roger's company, which was allegedly going to pay them $85,000 a year in salary over and above a 30% commission, nearly double the compensation and commission rate that was the standard maximum in the trade show sales field!

The best way to get unlost is to pull your horse out of the wall fixture and tell him to giddy-up! :)

My dear friend, I told you in the other Hub. I turned off the capability to receive emails through HubPages entirely. It was a safety precaution after my

unfortunate adventure. Therefore, I did not receive your private message at all, and thus I couldn't read it!

I will be happy to answer any question you have in public here if you like, though! :)

How come you still have the contact link on your profile?


Hal Licino profile image

I don't know of any way to take it off. But whatever message gets sent there disappears before I see it! :)

No worries. You are my fav HubPages author and I just thought I would stalk you for a while.

Take a number... I have stalkers waiting in the bushes outside my bedroom window... I usually moon them before I go to bed... it seems to keep the numbers down! :)

BTW, thanks for telling me I'm your fave! I appreciate it! :)

Ah, so the sight of the horrific clefted hirsute buttocks has finally left you speechless! I'm not overly surprised. There are few things in this universe which can provoke such sheer terror as the sight of my naked butt! :)

I would like to find springs for twin beds which could be used as bunk beds or setraape twin beds. They might have been sold by Sears? There are 2 wooden slats to hold the springs in place, which sit in wooden pieces on the bedrails. If I can find springs for these beds, I would like to pass them along to my granddaughter for her 2 daughters.The springs were not coil but elongated triangles fastened together with twists of metal.Do you know of a source for such springs which would not cost an arm and a leg to buy?Many thanks for your help,Aileen

Bev,I am sorry to tell you that your 4'6 flat bed-spring has little or no maortney value or a market place. They were an inexpensive widely sold type of spring popular between the two great wars and for a few years into the fifties. They are not more than a metal hammock with no support in the middle, but they do last forever, and maybe, just maybe, provide a less hospitable home to vermin than an upholstered box spring.Marshall Coyle
