Mr. “Ibrahim Lamorde” sent my sister, SalGal an email the other day. The subject line read, “OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY/BE CAREFUL OF THE HOODLUMS”
Here is the first paragraph:
“Based on the findings of this investigation department, we wish to warn some touts. We have been informed that some touts are contacting you on the collection of your fund in the total sum of $35 Million U.S. that was long approved in your favor through the WEMA BANK PLC.”
Here is my question: Do these people (usually from third world countries) think that we in the United States are all just complete dumbbells? I mean, some of us ARE complete dumbbells, but there are a WHOLE lot of us who know a scam when we read one, except that Sal and I can’t even figure this one out. Do they want to give us money or have us give them money for arresting the ‘tout’s who have stolen our $35 Million U.S. Do?
Thank God for our spam agents out there in cyber space tracking down these “hoodlums.” I think it’s pretty safe to say that Mr. “Ibrahim Lamorde” is not going to be upset or think about suing me for liable because I’m talking about him in our very public blog. As a matter of fact, I would wager all my egg money on the fact that this is not his real name. What do you bet?
How many times have you all won THE U.K. LOTTERY in millions of pounds sterling?? I think we’re all RICH! I’m going to wait to spend my money until the check has cleared. It WON’T clear, you say? Pish posh. Why I’ve won more merchandise than just about anyone I know, including all the “touts.”
Please, let’s all thank our spam agents for saving us from the Ibrahims of the cyberworld, and if you know of anyone who falls for this malarky, please confine them to a living space without access to mail or email or telephones!
