    Well, isn't that special!

    Didn't know I was so helpful!

    I got the following as an anonymous (because it was somebody without an account - they actually provided and email address) as a message to the board!


    Hi there, I was doing some research and ended up on one of your articles about american retirement savings, appreciate the info!

    I just finished putting together an infographic which talks about the the average state of retirement savings In America In 2017. I’m not nearly as confident in my retirement planning as I was prior to finding this data. Turns out, the amount someone has stashed in a retirement account will vary by age, wage and geographic location. However, nationwide, the decline in overall retirement contributions is alarming.

    Given your past work on the topic, I thought this might be of interest - please let me know if you want to check it out. In any case, keep up the great work!

    Thanks,
    Megan

    Gosh, Megan! Sure glad I could help!

    Except......I never wrote an "article" about retirement savings. For that matter, I don't think I ever posted anybody else's article about retirement savings. If any was mentioned, it was incidental to the rest of the post. My past work on the topic? What past work?

    I won't give her email address, but this was in it and might be a clue: investmentzen.com. Must be a site she created right after reading the article I never wrote because my non-existent past work on the topic got her so worried she had to do something about it.

    Hmmm.....I wonder if maybe she's trying to trick me out of some money.....
