Wow.. Bmw recall letters avail on Craigers..

Was just scanning craigslist and came across this tidbit of info. I guess everybody has a price and I wonder how long it will last.


Cheers

Just thought that I would also mention that I am in no way affiliated. Still think I would spend the extra $125 and get the info from BMW.

I'm sure the 'internal BMW employee' will soon be an 'unemplyed BMW employee'

hmm. in these times, if you have a job with a company like BMW, why would you risk it like that? its only a matter of time before someone finds out what the guy is doing. then he loses his job, and cant find another because the economy sucks, and he was fired from BMW.... what a clown.

The insider has a job at BMW and in times like these gets greedy too!
I bet it won't take too long for that person to be on the unemployment line.

I'd go through the audit trail on his computer or the network printer and his goose is cooked...I have done this before for business owners...no way to hide this stuff nowadays

BTW>... If anyone needs forensics done on a company computer...let me know...

thats not the point. The point is they are stealing from the company that trusted them.
I don't know about anyone one else but the last person you want to steal from is the person who entrusted you with a job....and a livelihood..

One can do a lot with photoshop but I guarantee you that under a forensics investigation you can tell its forged...believe me.

BTW.....revenue canada is wise to people cheating on their taxes the same way...

I am not trying to be a do gooder only relaying my findings..

Thats all

Have a good day.
