No Shortage of Strange!

Just like an any other ordinary day anywhere else in the world, I opened the spam folder in an email account I rarely use. By the looks of all the mail I have collected there, you would think I am hooked up with a Nigerian prince and all of his trustees, executors, and lawyer friends. It also appears that I have oodles of money ready to invest in my private space travels with nasty Russian women. But as a result of my apparent financial distresses, I’ve obviously turned into regular user of online drugs that I purchase through a third-party Korean transgender with assets from my offshore holdings. And with all that hidden wealth, I justifiably need to drive a dilapidated new car which is in need of 4 tires and constant repairs, just to stay under the radar of American Pickers. My alien abductorsย  have never returned to claim me, probably because of all my online watch purchases I’ve made, and because of all the ink and toner that I have collected and horded. I voted for Obama (more than once), I have no hair, suffer from erectile dysfunction and still, I have not joined enough lonely married women clubs. So, because my life has apparently become such a mess, I have emptied my spam folder and will start off with a clean slate. I was going to delete this account but now I think I’ll keep it and take another look at it again next year to see if I have changed my ways.

When you are retired, you can find all kinds of things to keep you busy…like reading unwanted spam for example!

  1. So we must be Nigerian brothers because I get those e-mails too. I also have yet to “cash in”. I’m waiting until I’m so desperate I can’t stand it anymore. Of course being retired now and not having much to worry about, except “Is there another beer in the refrigerator”, then I might have to wait until my next life time to cash it all in. In the meantime, I think I’ll empty my spam folder too.

  2. My neighbors son fell for one of those cons. He thought it was real because he was in Nigeria for a year as a volunteer for his church. I couldn’t believe he actually sent them money, not only once, but twice.

  3. John, I used to correspond with them and lead them on for days. I would waste so much of their time (and mine) that maybe it prevented them from scamming one more person. I usually always followed up with my final email sent from the “Internet Intelligence Agency” hoping to create a little nervousness. “We now know where you live and will be visiting soon!” he he ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. I want the e-mail address of the neighbors son. He has been awarded a month long, all-inclusive stay at a resort hotel of his choosing anywhere in the world. The only thing that needs to be paid is the taxes. They need to be paid in advance and the total amount is only (US) $702. All the details will be sent once the taxes are received.

  5. I have some old tools out in my shed that are sharper than him, but he’s my neighbors son, so,,,,,smile, be happy
