email

Do people actually EVER fall for this crap? I searched google for a couple of lines from the letter and it seems that there are a lot of different “from” and “reply-to” email addresses used, which tells me it is likely used to verify working email addresses.

I wonder if the actual Lawrence K. Wilson knows that a scam artist is impersonating him?

Awesome video, but I don’t think it is a very effective way to promote their service.

The message of the video is that “You don’t need a gun to protect your kids” from child predator scumbags. First of all, like I mentioned in previous posts I do not give a shit about the lives of murderers, rapists, child predators, etc… so saying you don’t need to shoot them, and that you should instead sign up for an email notification service that AmberWatch provides, and that will protect you kids seriously makes me ROFL.  I say shoot them all the first time they do something that makes them a danger to society.

Riddle me this… so you get an “alert” from AmberWatch which says that a man in a fake icecream truck tried to abduct 2 girls on the other side of the city where your son or daughter is.  What happens next?  Does batman work for Amberwatch? Or do you drop everything you are doing and race through traffic at 80mph frantically trying to find your kid.  All i’m saying is that their business plan seems to have some holes in it. Another big one being the fact that it appears that anyone can submit an “Event” to their website.  Is there any quality control?  The main AmberWatch foundation website says that the alerts are “Vetted And Authenticated by the AmberWatch foundation”, but I really don’t see how.  Do they know where every danger to your child is, but are just waiting for someone to lodge a complaint? I doubt it.

All that said… if I were a parent I probably would sign up for the service, but it would be supplementary to my gun… not instead of it.

One last thing… I hope no one sees that video and trys shooting dual guns in the air.  Not a great idea considering you have no idea where those bullets are ending up.
