I know I need money just like the whole world needs money, but do I have sucker scribbled across my forehead in big, bold letters?
Apparently, the spammers think so because this week I have won the UK National Lottery no less than five times. Millions of pounds, mine, all mine! I also won an OxFam Cash Grant Donation. Thank heavens! OxFam has finally realized that the third world developing country that is my fiefdom is in need of a gifantic cash tranfusion! Now I can couchsurf into retirement with a huge box of bon-bons and never glance back.
All I have to do is send my personal data via email and agree to accept this bounty in a direct wire transfer to my personal checking account. What are we waiting for? The answers to all my financial woes solved!
The universe is abundant, but like the NY State Lottery jingle goes: you gotta play to win. And since I haven't been playing, it's not likely that I'm winning. I'm lucky, but I'm not that lucky.
I smell a big stinky scam. The shame of it is that there will be people out there who are so desperate to believe that they will get snagged.
