No the ear is not sorted yet.
This morning I was back once more for another episode of ‘hoovering’!
Mind you, it felt more like drilling a new coal seam as Elly’s granddad did many a time, over one hundred years ago. Or maybe it was the beginning of a tunnel to the centre of the earth and out the other side to Australia.
So what has me dancing like a whirling dervish?
Today I had an email that would ensure a wealthy retirement for me and half a dozen generations after me. Wonderful. I might start by hiring my own jet, a team of pilots and stewards to cater for my every whim. Visiting every country all the way round the globe.
You do not believe me?
Here is the proof:
Dear Sole Beneficiary,
I am Charles J. Colocino Jr., a senior officer at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (USA)
I have contacted you regarding an abandoned diplomatic consignment box and the x-ray scan report box revealed some US dollar bill in it which could be approximately 12.5 Million dollars and the official paper of the box indicates your contact details. To confirm you as the authentic beneficiary and also for security Purpose, do send me your full information for crossed checking of your details with the information stated in the office.
YOUR FULL NAME, YOUR HOME ADDRESS, OCCUPATION, GENDER, YOUR HOME/MOBILE TEL NUMBER AND NEAREST AIRPORT CLOSE TO YOU,
Kindly click reply and get your correct and valid details to me as soon as you get this email. I will give you a call after my confirmation.
For your information, the box was abandoned by the diplomat who was on transit to your city because he was not able to pay the Airport clearance fee of 3,800 dollars.
I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned box so that we can transact this as a deal and share the total money 70% for you and 30% for me. As soon as I get the requested detail from you for verification.
I will pay the clearance fee and make arrangement for the box to be delivered to you which can be concluded within 4-6 hours after confirmation is made and upon your acceptance and willingness to co-operate. All communication must be held extremely confidential to ensure a successful delivery.
Wait now… let me think this through…
- My name is not Sole Beneficiary.
- I had only one relation who went to Chicago but his name was not O’Hare nor was he part of any Diplomatic corps.
Oh well, time to pick up the knitting and stop the dreaming.
