Uhm…Yeah…Ok…Sure…Perhaps they want a Visa or MC number for confirmation too.

Just thought I would call this scam to your attention if you haven’t already had the joy of chuckling at this garbage.

  1. YOU ARE SO LUCKY! I never get emails like that. Everybody else gets them, but not me. I guess I’m just a big loser since I never win any lotteries. And Nigerians never ask me to help them get their money out of the country. All I ever get are offers to make my penis larger…and I don’t even have one of those. This makes me sad.

    Hi OB! That’s why I adore you – you have that same demented, sardonic sense of humour as I! Ha! You know…I should send you the other one that accompanied it (actually received it before the London scam)…Apparently, “aliens” from the Earthling Bank have decided that I should be the owner of 10 million dollars! Oh yes…perhaps they can pay this out to me in Vulcan Spocks or something (I hear that the exchange rate on Vulcan Spocks is rather juicy these days…). Miss you OB…Hopefully, I’ll be around a little more these days!….Cheers…xoxox

  2. it always amuses me when i’m told i’ve won a prize in some competition i not only didn’t enter, but haven’t even heard of!
    the sad part is there are people who actually believe this garbage! and send all their details, AND their bank account details!
    um…HELLO!!!

    Hi Mummy! Yes…I get especially angry when I hear of senior citizens getting taken advantage by such scams (“Oh sure Dear…I’ll give you access to my bank account and pension…”). Some people just don’t know any better. Makes me sad. Stupid scammer people.

  3. Hi PM,
    I get these all the time, but I must point out something important here. Is this a direct reproduction of the email? If so, I’m shocked. It seems to be spelt right.

    Anthony! Lol! Clever, witty man you are…I tell you. I thought something was “wrong” with this email…and now you’ve pointed out what it is! They must actually be using spell-checker on these things now! Too funny….!

  4. OH boy! One of my friends is going to strike it rich?? Yay! Maybe you can pay for us to all travel round the world so we can meet up for coffee and tea!

    Congratulations!

    Peace and BS.

    Roobs! I’m tellin ya…As soon as I win the millions (or make them), I’ll pick all of you up in my private jet and personally whisk your little bums off to whichever little nook or corner of the world you care to visit…! 😉 Just need to write that book and make those millions first! [will you be my editor?!]…xoxo

  5. Hi PM,
    On a serious note, I want you to look at my icon on the ‘recent comments’ (right) and read what it says.
    I categorically say ‘no.’ 🙂

    Categorically?! Lol! All of you have made me laugh this afternoon! Thanks for that!
