Life has some strange twists and turns!
This is probably a bit of a shock to my readers, but not as much of a shock as it is for me. I always dreamed of being a millionaire. Now my dream is about to come true. In spectacular fashion.
I woke up this morning and checked my emails as usual. There was one from a lovely woman called Elodine.
The email started…
I know this mail will come to you as a surprise since we haven’t known or come across each other before considering the fact that I sourced your email contact through the Internet in search of a trusted person who can assist me.
Well, it was a surprise because I’d never heard of Elodine, but I was sure glad you chose me as her trusted person.
I won’t give all the details of her email, but here’s the gist of it.
Her father was a militia leader that died in fighting back in 2011. That left Elodine under the care of her stepmother. A stepmother that didn’t seem to like her at all. In fact, she took away all her documents, including her passport, so that she was unable to travel.
Luckily, the wicked stepmother didn’t find her father’s documents. Elodine held on to these.
It turns out that her father deposited $27.5 million in a bank in Burkina Faso with Elodine named as the next of kin. Unfortunately, she couldn’t collect this money, as she was classed as a refugee because of her lack of a passport.
This is where I come in. I will act as her trustee. The money will be transferred to me. I get to keep 40% of it, which is $11 million.
But wait, there’s more. Elodine will also travel to my country and start a relationship with me. I’m not sure how to explain this to my wife though. Maybe I can throw $1 million here way to placate here.
The thing that bothers me is how Elodine knows what country I live in. And how will she get a visa to visit and stay? I don’t think she’s thought this through properly.
Anyway, I’m not complaining.
So, with $11 million to my name, I guess I can give up writing. Once I get my hands on the cash I’ll buy all my readers a ko-fi. You can be sure of that.
I now have to reply to Elodine and she will explain the next steps to me.
I guess it will involve me having to send some money for administrative fees.
After that, I guess there’ll be more money to send, and then more after that. Will I ever get the $11 million?
Seriously folks, don’t fall for this kind of scam. It’s so unbelievable that I can’t believe anyone would, but people do fall for these all the time.
Back to writing for me.
