    Default Free ring from China

    Looks like I am a lucky guy. Got a free Cartier ring from China today.

    A few weeks ago I received from a Chinese freight forwarding company in Sydney an unsolicited USB stick in the shape of a yellow rubber aeroplane.

    Thinking it might be a way to hack computers I gave it to my son who works in IT security and he checked it out and said it was OK.

    Last week I received (again unsolicited) a plastic USB rechargeable powered personal fan in the shape of a "pink bear" from the same company?

    I'd prefer to get stuff like the set of ER32 collets I got a couple of years ago, again unsolicted.
    These came from Germany.
    Annoyingly I had a few months before bought a set from CTC tools.
    They were a cheap set so I gave them to a mate.

    I also received an SMS that said something.
    "You have paid $4995 for an XYZ mobile phone with ABC Gb of RAM and yadda, yada, yada, . . . .. If disagree call .... asap. etc"

    Yeah right - I check my credit cards for any dodgy transaction - nothing.

    My son says it's best not to acknowledge receipt or contact these people in any way.

    The package I received had a label that was almost completely faded. I could make out my name and address only because I could fill in the blanks but the sender details cannot be read. Googled free ring from China and lots of that sort of thing going on. Obviously a fake worthless ring but looks good.
