    I have just had the most odd comment left on one of my hubs:

    "I need help in locating a mirror that belonged to my grandfather, Joe Harnois/Beauharnais. The person who has the mirror does not know that there are important papers inside the frame of the mirror and LOCATING THESE PAPERS IS AN EMERGENCY!!!

    If you have any bulletin boards, please post this message.

    I live in Oaklawn, Illinois."

    By Jackie Harnois (no link left)

    So, if anyone has her grandfather's mirror, please own up big_smile

      Sounds like a mutation of the Nigerian bank account scam. Next thing he will tell you he knows where the mirror and the "important papers" are and he will ask you to help him get them, all for a nice percentage.

    Important papers hidden in the frame of a mirror - it's just has to be a treasure map!

    That is hilarious Mark!   Mirrors are VERY important! And I hope this is not hijacking this thread, but check out the comment I got on my TLC's What Not To Wear Hub a couple of days ago (someone must think I am the host of the show.. LOL!!!):

    Just was wondering if you could help me with a 50th Anniversary for my folks, and I'm one of 20 children.. And was wondering if you could get me a small make over, and an outfit for the party. Party is August 16th 2008. There are 6 girls and 14 boys maybe you would help us girls out... Just thought you might be able to do something, and my daughters and I love your show..Keep up the good work your great

    Makes me both worry and the evil part of me giggle.. this is a comment this person left on some I dream of Jeannie website:

    THERE IS A CONSPIRACY TO MURDER ME! Please contact Trish who was married to Chuck Fager, Vice President of Chicago Sun Times. Trish was a friend of Sue Kelly (Mary Susan Kelly) who married my dad, Jack Harnois. I need Trish to locate Sue. After my dad's death, she remarried John Hood (Hood Construction Co.), Prescott, Arizona. Ask Sue Hood who has Joe Harnois' mirror. She does not realize that papers are stored inside the frame. These papers are regarding treasures stored by my ancestors, The DuHamels. One of these treasures is an ancient Holybook (pages of gold with jewels on the cover). I believe that it is the original Old Testament. There are writings in this book that are not in other Bibles. The Bible has been altered. My name is Jackie Harnois and I live at [an address] Chicago., IL My e-mail is [anemailaddress] However, since yestereday, I cannot get on the screen in the Chicago Public Library. THIS IS URGENT Will try to send another e-mail

    Well I didn't realize she was so prolific but the really odd thing was that there was no contact link or address, so even though she was quite correct. I do know where her mirror is - I have no way of getting it to her. smile

    But to get the documents, I have to break the mirror - so I am wondering if they are worth the seven years bad luck that is sure to follow. big_smile

    I don't have any mirrors with frames that could hide papers in them, so I guess it's not me.

    Ghost32posted 13 years ago

    Hm.  Poor mirror-seeker's been looking for 16 months now.  Too bad I don't dare 'fess up to breaking it when I looked in it.  Didn't realize the papers were important; used 'em to line the birdcage.

    Don't tell anybody,  okay?

    Well, while you're finding her mirror, could you please help out the family that wants to move from the States, and left a message on my Peace River hub asking for a listing of job opportunities available to them in Calgary.

    ...and could you please help those nice girls in the Ethiopian refugee camps who are looking for sponsors to send money to them and their families?

    Thanks, Mark!
