Okay, some of you may remember my sharing with you of a letter via e-mail which I received a while back: Dear God Could This Be For Real? Well, apparently... I was scammed! Yes! It's true! It was a scam!
I had no idea that reading that e-mail would constitute being scammed, but apparently so. Who knew?
I have wonderful news! A kindly gentleman in Africa by the name of Mr. Ban Ki-moon has been gracious enough to inform me of a nice compensation package that the United Nations has put together for me. Yes, little old me.
It's quite a package, may I add. I'll have money left over. I can finally pay off my house, my bills, buy some environmentally friendly vehicles that seat eight, I can go on vacation, I can take friends out to lunch, I can buy some underwear and bras and maybe some really cool outfits. The possibilities for me are endless.
All I have to say is, thank goodness I don't have to go to the slammer for anything. And... here is one prime example of how it pays to be scammed. Not to mention the fact that you don't need to be edumicated good to be in with the higher ups - though perhaps I shall use some of my small fortune to help educate my Mr. Ban Ki-Moon. )
Now, I hope you all will excuse me, I have some personal information to share with a Mr. Jim Ovia. (Crazy names these people have.)
