    Looking for some insight...

    Discussion started by Grandola - Jul 17, 2003

    so, i have a san antonio graffiti based website...

    anyhow, i recieve an email from someone working with the government (the equal employment opportunity commission) that wants me to call them regarding a project. the number he gave me to call is a local one.
    i know he got my email off of my website, because everytime someone emails me from the website it includes my email and also my friend's email.

    would you call? or am i being paranoid? i doubt they could do anything to me because of my website, but who knows what the deal is... i've emailed him back twice already asking for more info. but no return.

    drop it like it's hot.

    If it really mattered to them (in a legitimate way), they'd contact you.

    It sounds like a waste of your time.

    exactly what kilo said..they would take time to email you back if it meant that much to them.

    Do you have a disclaimer on your website about no law inforcement bs?..

    The police set up a fake legal wall project that was really for kids murals. All the writers that called in got caught up. Hahaha that was some sneaky shit. Don't fall for it.

    well the email was from equal employment opportunity commission

    so its not like it was FBI or CIA... just a government agency.

    anyhow, he emailed me back... wants someone to paint a mural out in his ranch.... i think no.
