Life Opinion

Be polite when you’re contacting people and companies.

I’m at Whole Foods in Garden City, Long Island. I was using my debit card and it took a few tries for it to work. The reason is that the debit card is slightly scratched. 

I was sending a secure message to my bank and I thought I’d create a blog post about it. The following is the message I sent to my bank:


Can you please send me a new debit card with the same number? I still have my current debit card and it’s working. Don’t cancel my current card. 

Please just send me a new fresh one before the current one stops working because it’s a little scratched. If you require any additional information please let me know. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward, 

Mark Pine

I contact companies all the time via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the corporate support pages on their websites. Sometimes I’m in a rush. There are instances when I’m unhappy with the product or service. 

Regardless of what is going on I always slow down a little bit while I’m sending the request or information to the company. I make sure my message is clear. More importantly, I always go out of my way to construct the note to be ultra respectful. 

The same thing goes for when I’m contacting the staff and professors at The City University of New York. Anytime I send a message to a staff member at my college I go above and beyond to be respectful. I also take my time to make sure the message is clear so they know what I’m requesting. 

In my humble opinion, if you go through life sending half-written emails and messages to people that give the impression that you’re stressed out, people are not going to respect you. Moreover, you can potentially miss out on important details. 

Be friendly. Be polite. Be respectful. Be clear. You never know who is going to be reading your messages and emails. Furthermore, you might miss out on crucial information if you are sending out the wrong impression while reaching out to people. 

Regardless of what is going on, it’s safe to say the person fielding your messages didn’t create the problem you are inquiring about. If someone gives you an attitude, ignore it. Continue to treat the individual with the utmost respect, keep it brief and professional, then move on.

Someone giving you an attitude is not an excuse to act disrespectfully. Bring them up to your level and move on. 

College Government Law Enforcement Opinion

My new email signature at Baruch College CUNY.

This email signature is dedicated to all the victims of NYPD Alberto Randazzo. 

This message is for government officials and private organizations I contact about a situation I’m about to detail. 

This email signature is not for anyone at CUNY. I never bring up anything mentioned in this email with anyone at CUNY besides the Title 9 Coordinator, the CUNY General Counsel, and Chancellor via email. 

I don’t believe it’s appropriate to discuss any of this with anyone at school, although it must be included. Recently several emails were erased from my LaGuardia Community College email account. 

This time I’m going to include this information in every email signature so the same people can erase every email and say I never sent one email the whole time I’m at Baruch College. 

I treat everyone at CUNY with the utmost respect at all times. Including staff, professors, and students. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. 

I’m professional, concise, respectful, and serious. I do not get into anything about anyone’s personal life at CUNY. 

I grew up around major money in New York City, Nassau County, South Florida, and the Hamptons. People I know have been paying New York law enforcement to run scams for decades.

Long story short, they told New York law enforcement (NYPD, NCPD, SCPD, etc.) to tear me to shreds. 

I’m not going to keep quiet while people I grew up with and New York law enforcement devise one scam after the next to try and have me kicked out of college. I’m not going to keep quiet while rich people I grew up with are having brunch in Palm Beach and Amagansett while paying the police to have me tossed out of school. 

People don’t realize why some victims take years to report the crimes. The reason is that most, not all, of the police can care less. Also, when you report crime people are too busy with their own issues, and sometimes when you report a crime you lose more than you already lost. 

It’s really not a joke but I will make a small joke and say that New York law enforcement offers an amazing value for the dollar. The members of New York law enforcement and their civilian team who harass me should focus their energy on something positive because they are very talented. They harass me in ways that a regular person would not believe unless they say a video of it.

New York law enforcement has people try and pick fights with me, they had girls try to befriend me, they destroy my property, attack me, etc. 

I have been put on notice that New York law enforcement will be sparing no expense or resource to have me kicked out of school. 

When New York law enforcement harasses me, I take my headphones out of my ears and call NYPD 911 over and over until they stop harassing me.

The NYPD 911 operators all know me. I know they aren’t helping me. My thought process is at least it’s documented that I called. I shared my phone records with the Chancellor and CUNY General Councils’ office. 

I used to argue with the NYPD and NYPD 911 operators on the phone. I’m always polite to New York law enforcement in person. 

I have been notified that New York law enforcement is going to take the audio of me arguing with them and use it out of context which is their specialty. They are going to say the audio of arguments between New York law enforcement and me was directed at professors, staff, or students at CUNY. 

New York law enforcement also let me know that they will have multiple students say I was stalking them and trying to pick fights with people. 

New York law enforcement already has people crash into me, cut me off, and many other scams/ambushes while it’s being recorded. Especially when I’m in Manhattan and Queens. 

New York law enforcement also goes into all my social media and email accounts and sabotages them, erases emails, sends messages, and pretends it’s me. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t have a criminal record. 

I am a New York State licensed real estate broker. I also provide web marketing services for companies. 

About five years ago New York law enforcement chased away the majority of my web marketing clients and I’ve been homeless ever since. 

I have places to shower. I have a place to keep clean clothes. I sleep on subways and buses. I like to sleep on the 7 train. 

When I used to be busy as a real estate broker I helped so many people find apartments without charging them that I lost count. 

When I was active with web marketing I helped so many people without charging them I lost count. 

I’ll take my last bite of food and throw it to a bird when I’m walking around. 

That’s the type of person I am. 

I’m not saying all of New York law enforcement are criminals. I’m saying a fraction of 1% of them are and that is who is harassing me. 

I’m in the process of suing the NYPD and NCPD. I have contacted hundreds of government offices and agencies and I’m contacting more. I’m going through all the proper channels and it’s going to work out. 

Again, I’m not going to keep quiet while millionaires I grew up with pay police to sabotage me. They already took enough from me. 

I love college and I want to graduate. After 36 credits at CUNY, I have a 3.975 GPA. That’s studying and doing my homework on the subway steps while living on $12 per day. 

I used to enjoy dating. Now my face looks like a piece of spoiled roast beef and I’m missing teeth. 

Moreover, if a woman offered me $10,000,000 to hold her hand for 30 seconds, I wouldn’t do it because the police have me living so cautiously I’d think it was a setup. 

NYPD Internal Affairs and the CCRB have not helped me at all. 

Thank you, and have a great day. 

Government Law Enforcement Opinion

Extra phone number for insurance purposes.

Extra phone number for insurance purposes. 

People I know pay the NYPD, NCPD, and SCPD to torture me. I’m famous in the New York law enforcement and government community. 

My social media is like an evidence file cabinet. I post everything I do on the web to try and cover myself. The police go into all my accounts and erase posts and emails plus impersonate me. 

I was arrested in Nassau County because people I know pay the Nassau County Police to sabotage me. 

I was charged with one misdemeanor for harassing the police. Yes, the Nassau County Police with however many officers they have are saying I’m harassing them by calling and reporting that I’m being harassed. 

I quickly turned over my phone records directly to my Nassau County Legal Aid Attorney who is great by the way and the Nassau County District Attorney. I also filed a Notice of Claim with the Nassau County Attorney to sue the Nassau County Police.

One lie that the Nassau County Police made up is that I was calling them from another phone in addition to my main phone number which is 917 815 5415. I don’t have another phone number except for my Google Voice number and that’s not the number they said was calling them. 

Fast forward to now. Use this information at your own risk. Verify everything yourself. All information is subject to change. 

The police rob me all the time. They don’t care who I tell. Internal Affairs is a scam. The CCRB hasn’t helped me at all. 

I have insurance on my phone. If I’m correct I can lose my phone either two or three times per year and I get a replacement for a deductible. Needless to say, the police and their civilian team stole whatever the maximum amount of phones the insurance company will replace. 

The year for my phone insurance resets in April if I’m correct. I’m about to receive my student loans from college. I want to buy the new Samsung S21. If I buy it when it is released I won’t have insurance on it for a couple of months until my phone insurance resets. 

There is no way I’m going to buy that phone and not have insurance. A person who works for the phone company gave me an idea of how I can buy the phone now and get insurance. 

Basically, I have to add a phone number to my current account. If I add a phone number to my account for two months it will cost about $200. Then I can cancel the extra phone number in April when the insurance resets for my main phone number which is 917 815 5415. 

This way if I lose the new Samsung S21 in the two months before my insurance resets I get a new one for a reasonable deductible. 

I’m not going to make 1 phone call from the new number. I’m only going to use the new phone and number to create videos and surf the web. I’m going to keep my current inexpensive phone on me if I need to make calls. 

If the police know that I have an expensive phone that is uninsured for two months they will steal it. They don’t care who I tell that phone is gone before it gets here. 

The police can not resist a chance to rob me for close to $1,000. Then they can go back to the civilians who I grew up with and tell them what a great job they are doing harassing me and everyone is happy. 

One more time. I’m not going to make 1 phone call with the new phone number. Once it gets to April or May when my insurance resets on my main number I’m going to cancel the extra phone number and move the phone over to my main phone number.
