The latest scam making the rounds is the coca cola car wrap scam.

Actually, it could be any well-known company but, at the time that she sent me the link over in Facebook Messenger, it was coca cola.

Confession of a Welfare Queen

Story of a Mom attempting to survive on social service benefits while working her way off.

I have a confession to make. Something that only my real life friends and family know about me.
