Looks like Continental Broadcasting Network has a new URL. They were so darn impressed with me they sent me TWO announcements about my awesomeness! On the first one they  “announced your candidacy” and the second one, a day later, they were “alerted of your candidacy”. I’m so flattered! I can’t believe little ole’ me is getting this kind of….hey, wait a minute here.

I got my email today, telling me of this prestigious honor! My deceased uncle I never knew about (a Nigerian Prince, no less) who left me millions of dollars if I just send his attorney my bank account number would’ve been so proud! Oh wait…

I received the letter from the prestigious CBN, Inc. announcing that because of my credentials and professional rankings and associations, I was selected as a candidate pending approval for induction into their prestigious directory.

Today, I received a call from a man who said he just wanted a few minutes of my time to interview me and discuss my background. I played along out of morbid curiosity, as I had never heard of their well-respected directory that professionals the world over consult for networking opportunities with other fellow professionals who qualified to be included in the prestigious publication.

When we came to the part of the interview when he asked me about my education, where I received my degrees from, etc., I asked him, “Don’t you already have that information?” He hung up. Scam.

I received a call from Thomas Callahan of the well-known CBN today asking if he could set a date to interview me for inclusion in the “Who’s Who of important people in the U.S.” because of my authoring and editing experience with Greenleaf-Underhill.
The fact that I am a Canadian, born and living in Canada did not seem to be a problem for CBN; it is for me.
I had to decline the ‘honour’.

Mr. McKay,
As was explained to you during our brief conversation, this is a GLOBAL publication for professionals WORLDWIDE. I am certain you understand this concept as we have professionals who are employed by companies in Canada that conduct global business. If this was of no interest to you, which I understand and take no offence with, then why bother even responding to the invite?….to waste other’s time? The professional included here for the past 21 years we have been in business, at least know how to treat a person with respect, dignity and courtesy
