Mrs. Anna-Maria Spitale
Normally I would not publish email addresses, but these people are special (and I’m hoping the spam robots will pick up the addresses and spam them).
I wonder if Mrs Vice President Spitale and Jim Edwards are Shirley Mathis and “supervisor”, the holiday by phone scammers I reported back in August? If so, it’s lovely to hear from you again, but I’m still not giving you my bosses credit card number…
