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
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.
I'm a web developer and here is the info she (not he) left on my "Request A Free Mockup" form...
I did call her as I did not know what this person was talking about and she was confused at best and was unable to explain to me what she was talking about in the request form.. I politely said have a nice day and hung up... If anyone has her mirror, please contact her... contact info below

Hey Mark, I thought you were an atheist? Don't atheists not believe in superstitions?
I don't know, hence my questions.
Mirror Mirror not on her wall ...whos got Jackies mirror...very odd indeed Mark
Well it seems to be an EMERGENCY, but she left no link or return address so......
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
There is an interesting story sleeping within this comment regardless of the sender's intent.
Apparently he/she gets around quite a bit.

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
Is this part of hubpages new contest? Or is somebody gone cuckoo in the head?

Don'tcha just love it when your middle-schooler could do better with both spelling and grammar?
Cracks me up.
I think my son would have done a better job in third grade!!! LOL
kinda creepy... in a chain letter kinda way.... but um, it does sound kinda urgent...
Crap! Jackie is getting close to finding me. Time to relocate the mirror. Again.
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.
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.
Nobody knows what can be found.

You guys, this is the weirded HUB I have ever read. Riveting though.
Congrats, Sir Dent! I won that same lottery yesterday for about the 5th time.
Why don't I feel rich?
I don't have any mirrors with frames that could hide papers in them, so I guess it's not me.
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?
For me there was no comment but someone mailed me from Hubpages asking me how to hack someone's email password
"i found your posts too much useful and result oriented and i sure u msut help me out in the manner of friendship and humanity too
well have to say that i want to know how we can get password, contacts and other info of any yahoo or hotmail accnt even the users nealy created accnt too that he din told me
i`m curiously w8ing for your kind reply
Sorry to say I did not answer his pray!
wow Mark...that is definitely a weird comment. And nope sorry I don't have the mirror so I can't give it to her lol
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?

I've been having issues with the comment box for the past few days. It actually 'disappears' when I am typing a comment. (Goes off screen, then reappears). Or it switches from full size to a kind of foreshortened view. Best way I can describe is it keeps flipping around. (Frustrating.) I am...

Do comments you leave on your own Hubs count towards your comment levels?Regarding the accolades, I was just wondering. We've covered that answers to questions do not count towards your "commenter" level accolade, but do the comments we leave on our own Hubs? When I get a bunch of...

Where did my commenting accolade go?Maybe I comment too much? Is it a glitch or am I being penalized? Just curious, wondering if they can take accolades away.

Hi! I haven't been in these forums for a long time. I was just wondering why some of my activity in Hubpages don't show up in the Hubtivity section. Like when I comment on people's hubs, one comment shows up in Hubtivity while another doesn't. Has this happened to anyone else?
