    Blimey Lenny,
    Close call...makes your blood boil doesn't it? Strangely enough, speaking of scams, I won a lottery that I never entered the other day! all I had to do is give them my bank details and they'd send me the money! Luckily for them I had actaully heard of this scam (I saw that because you can't get blood from a stone!)
    Hope all gets sorted with your damaged car and I hope you're getting SOME sleep with little Jack. Is this your first?
