I didn't answer emails for more than a week. I've been trying to catch up but apparently I overlooked one from this impatient fellow:
SUBJECT: SECOND NOTICE!!!
from: Brian Walters email@example.com
date: Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 4:45 AM
THIS IS FOR YOUR ATTENTION.
We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of 10,600,000.00GBP (Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. (Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you). We contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore can present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance.
We therefore reckoned that you could receive these funds as you are qualified by your name identity. All the legal papers will be processed in your acceptance. In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward to us your letter of acceptance; your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding address to enable us file necessary documents at our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money.
Please contact me via my private email so that we can get this done immediately.
Hmmm, now which relative with my "surname" would this have been?....Uncle George Gringa, rich cousin Fred Gringa, Grandpa Bill Gringa? Whoever it was, may he rest in peace. Nice of him to think of me. Ten million pounds? That's about 20 million bucks, isn't it? Or about 378 million Honduran lempiras. Sounds good to me.
Does anyone really believe these things? Oh, and don't ALL attorneys use hotmail addresses? Pull-leeze.
