Soda Strange

Perhaps it is written somewhere that, how you are perceived by others, is a measure of when they think of you and what they do about it.

In my case, I'm screwed.

A former colleague of mine got herself an authentic, genuine email scam.  Yes, she did.  And soon as she read it, she thought of me.

Thankfully, not as the writer of it; April Fools ain't here yet.

At any rate, here's what she got:


> Dear,

> I am Kola Dare, an Attorney by profession from Republic of Togo, Senior Advocate of Togo, (S.A.T). It might interest you to know that I have a deceased client that bears the same surname with you, came to Togo in 1988 and was working with Shell Development company, Lome Togo.

OR koladare@yahoo.fr
>

> Barrister. Kola Dare.
> Senior Advocate of Togo, (S.A.T).

 

So that is how a colleague received the initial effort to give her the business. Except that she wasn’t interested in getting the business; particularly not this business.


So immediately she thought of me.


It says so much about me that when someone thinks of me....they forward me their scam emails. And that might be the nicest thing they forward me.


Yeah, I probably do know where I went wrong, and repeatedly so, but I digress...


So, what to do with an email scam the likes of this one? Wahl, lessee what I dun widdit:

But that is not why I am written to you today. It should be, because it's
fucking awesome, but it isn't, dammit.

In fact, this whole email has been a colossal waste of my time and in-grown
nose hairs. That's kinda yukky to think about.

So far, nothing from the land of email scams or righteous indignation from soft drink makers.  But the week is young....
