As you all know by now I have been blessed with a new manager at work and it is amazing how tiered you get only by update, inform and explain tasks you more or less do everyday. So I can imagine how tiered the receiving part of all this must be after his first week. So, a well needed morning primal scream “TGIF!!!” for both of us.
So any plans for this weekend? Really, I wanted to have a haircut since I am now soon able to style my hair like Princess Leia. The supposed shorter parts of the hairstyle grown to fast as always. I planned for a cut when I am in Stockholm in a week but it’s really needed NOW. At the same time other things happening now in Paris. Both Atelier des Lumières and Le Musée Yves Saint Laurent present new exhibitions I like to see (OK not mandatory this weekend) and I also really need to clean the apartment including wash the windows before frost and cold days. It’s still none freezing outside during the days so… Let’s see how the weekend turns out, let me guess on Monday none of the above been executed.
Just remembered another thing I would like to do, just stay home doing nothing drinking a nice bottle of Vinho Verde. Might be the easiest plan to follow…
If a scam, turn out to be so stupid that no one falls for it they will be tried once and then “POFF” gone. This means that the scam, like the one below, actually works. People really fall for this. If not no such scams will turn up in our inboxes.
So, again, “Never underestimate how stupid people can be”
“I hope that this mail finds you in good health. I am Mr. Tambo Jacob a staff of a bank in United Kingdom. One of our accounts, with holding balance of £38,000 000.00 (Thirty Eight million pounds Sterling) has been dormant and last operated many years ago. Nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money. This is because the account owner has no family member or friends that are traceable. I have tried to locate the relations but without success and that is why I decided to find a reliable partner to move the money with.
My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and beneficiary of this late client, So that the proceeds of this account shall be paid to you, and then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. The funds will be released to you after necessary processes have been followed.
I anticipate your cooperation and utmost confidence. Awaiting your reply stating your willingness.
And no, It’s not a religious statement, the person to arrive today is the new manager at work. We are not many in my department at the moment so when he is here we will be 2 1/2 person (including the new manager). So lets say we look forward to some days with a lot of updates and training and then together we will take a deep breath and work.
As always, now it gets darker in the mornings. Not as bad here in Paris as in Sweden and Stockholm but still no fun. Winter is kind of the punishment for all bad things homo sapiens done since the dawn of time. Actually the only thing making me believe that religious people are in their right and there is a God. Not the nice forgiving one a mean one forgetting about “Let there be light” and go, “Let them live in a dark cold misery.
