WE WON THE LOTTERY
I don't know about you, but in the past few months my in box has been flooded with "free offers". We have received free lunches, dinners, shopping sprees at Walmart and Home Depot. They want me to fill out a short survey to tell him how they are doing. Not to mention the latest scam, we are millionaires. I don't know how many emails I have received telling me, all I have to do is give them my phone number, my address, my full name and I can't remember what else, so that they can deposit 200 million dollars into my account. I learned that I have relatives I didn't know I had in another country who also want to deposit 10 or 15 million dollars in my account. Unfortunately I am also hearing from people who present themselves as the Pastor of a church, telling me one of the parishioners has passed away, and found me, a long lost relative, and they will be depositing hundreds of millions of dollars into an account in my name. Another one just today said Fed-Ex would deliver an ATM card from Africa. He also told me the President of "my" country had authorized me to be one of the recipients of this windfall. Well, don't call me asking for a loan, because we didn't really win the lottery. We're still like everyone else on the block, just happy to be alive and well.
