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™‚

    haha

    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˜‰
