Today I’ll write about something that I didn’t realize until this past weekend. For years I’ve struggled to get a ‘newsletter’ going. If you’ve been on my list you’ll know that I’ll write something once in a while then fade off. Bad business I tell you.
You have a full-time job but on the side you have a small business catering for events on the weekend. You get up one morning, get ready for work and in the process you grab your phone to check your email. On the summary you see a new email from an unknown sender:
URGENT: COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT NOTICE, YOU HAVE 14 DAYS TO PAY P20 000
It was around 7:45pm and apart from restaurants, businesses were closed
This was in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg.
We had just finished dinner and were on our way to the car.
I looked across the road and the bright and gallery-like display of the office was screaming my name.
I went with the intention to look through the window because I didn’t think anyone would be there.
I quickly crossed the road much my husband’s disdain and marched up to the building.
