Enjoy the update!
I realize many of you read these newsletters hoping to
receive an update on a MEG MOVIE. Good things are
happening behind the scenes, but until a deal is
done, I am being told to keep quiet. In fact, because I
have a habit of sneaking info to my fans, I am often the

for Goliath. Stay tuned

Please pass this on to everyone in your email
address book. It is spreading fast so be prepared
should you get this call. Most of us take those
summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough
people skip out on their civic duty that a new and
ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.
The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest
that you never received a summons for jury duty, the
scammer asks you for your Social Security number
and date of birth so he or she can verify the
information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any
of this information and bingo, your identity was just
The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states,
including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado . This
(swindle) is particularly insidious because they use

nationwide alerts on their web sites , warning
consumers about the fraud.
