Hello, I'm The White Rat!
There are a lot of bad things (and bad or questionable people) in the world – scams, social injustices, rip-offs, liers, poor quality products, cheats, crooks, and even intentionally rude people. The list really pretty long.
No, I’m not talking about floods and earthquakes here – I’m talking about things that people do to other people (no, not muggings and stuff either – but that fits in the list too... well, sort of).
One day, it occurred to me that if I weren’t doing something then I was doing nothing. I just couldn’t see a gray area. I was, on that day and every day since, very tired of doing nothing.
This site is an attempt to bring some of this scum to the surface of the public pond in which we all swim.
Of course, there’s no way to address all the wrongs of the world but we can be on the watch for some them and try to let others know when they’re found. Sometimes information is enough. Sometimes not. But we have to start somewhere, right?
I decided to start with Phishing Messages – mostly because I see them all the time and hear from friends and family about them on a frighteningly regular basis.
Other topics will show up here as time goes by, I truly hope that you’ll check back to see what’s up.
If you have any ideas, let me know by dropping a note to me at
In the meantime, stand up for what’s right:
- Say something to that person who cuts in the line in front of you!
- Stop buying from companies that make poor quality products – if it doesn’t work then TAKE IT BACK.
- Support your local businesses – they work hard and could use your support. They're your neighbors, your friends, and help your local economy go.
