The Road to Riches

It's a dangerous one and you have to pick your opportunities wisely.  Here are a few I had to pass up since I am committed to be a starving writer...or a dieting one anyway.

Princess Anita Mungo, I'm sorry but I can't help you.  4.5 million dollars is a lot of money but I am sure you will find someone else who will protect you from your thievin' relatives for a percentage.  I can't even pronounce the name of your country.

Mrs. Miri Jonado, shame on you being a bank manager and all.  I will not split some dead client's money with you.  26 million is a lot though and I admit to a little daydreaming before deciding against it.

Now I have to go because the Microsoft Windows Live Team is emailing me for my user-id and password so they can keep my account active.  Do you think they really need my mother's maiden name?

FYI: Keep your eyes open for this scam.  The nerve of some ducks.

Have you noticed an increase in these types of emails?  Or am I just checking mine too often?


  1. I love the picture!

    Marsha, I suggest you skip the penis enlargement offer as well. It won't do you any good.

  2. LOL - Oh, what sacrifices you've made! :o)

  3. Yes, I am highly familiar with those scams. They LOVE me. *sigh*

  4. The SPAM filter is our friend. Though if we get to be hungry enough artists we may start eating the spam. :P

  5. Wow! I don't get any of these!

    I feel so left out. I want opportunities, too.

  6. Yes!!! I've got so many dead relatives in Nigeria! Who knew?

  7. I stopped using Microsoft Office Live when it went berserk and started requiring you to have Office 2010 for it to work. We stopped using it at work, too. I don't know what Microsoft is thinking with that!


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
