I See Disaster On The Horizon, But Not The One You Think

Wow. Here’s an attempt at identity theft if I ever saw one. For those who think the rapture is coming, and they will be swept up to heaven, there’s a site who will send a farewell message to their non-believing pals 6 days after the rapture has happened. But that’s not all. We’ve seen that before. This time, the company is asking for 40 bucks a year, and for that bargain, you can encrypt all your personal data, such as bank accounts, social security numbers, etc. to be sent to 12 people after the big day.

Anybody see a problem with that? Hmmm? I sure do. Aside from the usual questions of why would you care what happens to your stuff if the world is going straight to hell, and if all the good folks are being shot straight to heaven, why would you give all your stuff to an evil person, I see a company getting access to all kinds of data that they could use for less than good purposes.

Apparently, the YouveBeenLeftBehind.com site looks like crap, and their privacy policy is less than inspiring. It is one sentence. “We won’t give any information to anyone, period!”

Hmmm. So, by that logic, no messages will go out after the big day of reckoning? Nice going.

Here’s another curious part of their description of services.

We have set up a system to send documents by the email, to the addresses you provide, 6 days after the “Rapture” of the Church. This occurs when 3 of our 5 team members scattered around the U.S fail to log in over a 3 day period. Another 3 days are given to fail safe any false triggering of the system.

So…2 of the team members are believed to be sinning sacks of shit? Would those be the ones running out and copying down all the subscribers’ info to commit mass identity theft? And, what’s with the phrase “by the email?” Not via email, or through email, or by the email system? By the email? Time to go back to English class, sparky.

Let’s face it. If the rapture ever happens, your stuff is probably screwed. It’s gone, destroyed in a massive disaster. Giving all that info to some unfortunate soul who’s still on the rubble heap of the earth probably isn’t going to help you or them. On the other hand, putting all your important stuff in the hands of a company in the hopes that it will be useful to someone left after the supposed rapture is probably going to lead to disaster for you. Let’s hope this company is nothing more than a hoax. If it is a real company, I don’t want to see it develop a subscriber base because if it does, those people are doomed no matter what.
