Apparently there are 250 people born each minute.
Based purely on personal observation I would say the sucker percentage is about 5% of that.
(Of course in PT Barnum’s day there were something like 30% less people around).
I wondered why mine didn’t work...

A Rice Puller is an imaginary object, usually metal, that has the magic property of attracting grains of rice off a plate or on a table (it does not yank rice off the field). It is completely useless, but thanks to its magic quality, it is used as a device to magically extract money from unsuspecting people that think they have an easy opportunity to get rich.

In many cases, the metal iridium is supposed to be a required ingredient in these Rice Pullers.

Since people are sometimes a bit thick, they then search the web for iridium-related companies, find the company that I work for, which produces avionics that work with the Iridium satellite constellation, fake an ID badge of said company, and present themselves as the official representative of the company to broker iridium-the-metal deals.



This goes well until somebody e-mails me and then we have a brilliant discussion.

The Compliance and Legal folks in India said that even a previous email with “police” documentation was poorly done.

It is an ongoing nuisance for a few years now. No joke.

Fascinating, Hoppie. I love how your story starts with fake rice pullers, circles through satellite constellations, and ends up with fake ID cards for your company. Go figure.
