were you expecting a golden envelope, Jason?
Yes, Jason, quite odd. He needs to learn to read the fine print.
And he’s supposed to be the smartest in the family.
Is that Quincy who’s eyeing it hungrily?
I feel the same way every time I get an email from the exiled Nigerian Minister of Finance.
(small print): that’s what we might be saying IF, etc etc etc…
Of course the official-looking envelope is gratuitously labelled IMPORTANT.
After my father died I would get phone calls at 0200 AM from my mother telling me she had won all these sweepstakes. I demanded that she read the letter to me and she refused. At some level she knew they were all a scam but she was so desperate to win that she tried to go to the bank to get money to “pay the taxes” on the supposed large winnings. I had to take access to money away from her before she sent it all away.
Wait until he gets to the part about being over 21.
Sad but needed.
You won’t win 10 million dollars without a reason.
Everybody’s already guessed the ending!
I had one on phone call, what was my mom’s phone number that was transferred to a cell phone and she’s been gone for 2 years, knew nothing of computers. The call male claimed from PCH asked for her, red flag, I told him this a scam, he claimed no not a scam. I was suspicious, I told him she is gone, I had husband speak to him, and then my daughter, it was a scam, he said he go to next caller. I hung up. PCH does not make a phone call.
Somehow Publishers Clearing House dropped me from their mailing list years ago. Wish I knew what I did to make that happen, I’d be willing to share it with all of you.
I have started getting slow-mail spam in official-looking envelopes that look like the government ones that you have to open by bending and tearing off the sides first.
