Your honor, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this is irrefutable evidence that the defendant is, in fact, lying.

I bring to you today a classic in the annals of poor scamming.

So I wake up this morning and start sifting through my email and I come across a very important letter . Apparently Orville Rosario of the US Government felt it was imperative to write me and inform me that online tax ID had failed and I needed to contact them as soon as possible. Because I’m apparently supposed to be easily spooked and panicky because it’s HTML formatted I’m expected to click the link in the email. So I decided to be a sport about it and publicly humiliate the letter before I send it off to the FBI’s phishing department.

Let’s play find the typos!

and here’s your answer key.

    It would be easier to find the words that are spelled correctly!

    • Hahaha! Seriously. I was getting worried that they would muff “and ” and “to”.

  2. Dang! I found even more errors now that I’m looking at it while sitting instead of standing. Did you know you can spot more errors while seated? I didn’t know that until just now.

    • It’s like looking through a dyslexic’s eyes, eh?

      • By the way…you missed one of the typos…there is an additional “sytsem” in the second line of the warning section. Never mind the fact that the reason codes and Acts and Titles are probably wrong too!

      • So how many did you count?

  3. Hilarious, Ian! It must have been news to you that your tax payment to the U.S. Government had failed! I’m sure the Canada Revenue Agency is happy about that…

    • No doubt. I think I kinda suspected something foul was afoot when my name wasn’t even anywhere in the dang thing. XD
