What you won't see…

…on a Microsoft product!

This is the most security I have seen from Microsoft in a long time, and it is on a $5 check.

  • WTH?

  • How did you score the five bucks?

  • The owed that to me for a mouse I purchased last year. 8 months ago as a matter of fact. They tried to tell me originally that I didn’t fill out the rebate stuff correctly, and I photocopied the entire process, and double checked. They pissed me off so bad that night that any name you can think of, I called them that. This is all over $5. I am not going to cash the check, I am thinking of something else better to do with it. $5 won’t even get me to work/school and back ๐Ÿ™‚

    It makes me happy to see them losing quite a few million a day due to their crappy Vista. I can’t wait for the day that Ballmer just buries them into the ground.

    OK, I am going to get a drink, talking about them bastards still gets me upset ๐Ÿ™‚

    The difference between this and their other products? It’s actually worth money.

    What was on the back? ๐Ÿ˜›

  • I tried to take a picture but since they printed their security crap so small and in a very light pink color, it blends in with the check color. So you have to squint your eyes to be able to read it. Here is what I made out:

    The padlock icon is printed with ink that responds to warmth. Hold between thumb and forefinger or breathe on it. The image will fad and reappear.
    The security features on this document includa Microline printing in borders, a colored background, and an artificial watermark on back. (Held at an agnle to to view.) Absence of any of these features may indicate a counterfeit document.

    Yes, they even spelled “include” incorrectly as noted above. The colored background is pink, the printed text is pink, and now my head hurts from trying to read it ๐Ÿ™‚

    So according to Microsoft, maybe if you blow on your computer security will reappear ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You have any windows tax refund checks you want to scan? ๐Ÿ˜‰
