I Won 50 million ‘Furos’!

I’ve been getting calls to update, oh dear! I’m working on something that might be a little controversial vis-a-vis my views of women and gender equality as I think it should be.

Just to assure some people I’m still alive, I’ll leave you with a quote from an e-mail I got two minutes ago informing me I had won some ‘furos’ in a lottery I never entered:

Dear Mr Zahymaka,

We are writing to inform you that you won the sum of 50 million furos in our internacional lottery…

    Sure thing . There’s more where that came from. Would you like me to put up your e-mail on a scam site? You’ll win tons of competitions 😀

    Chainreader
    Yay! Your comment’s in.

    Yeah!!! Which country’s currency is that? They should send the money to you without any obligations from you of a ‘processing fee’. But of course, I’m sure you already know its a bait for a scam thats about to be unleashed on you – only u’re wise to their game.

    Are you sure? I’ve been online all day today but haven’t seen you. The exam didn’t quite turn out the way I would have liked it — I’ll post about it when my result comes out.

    Temmy Tayo
    I’m not sure I do. Remember that 1 Furo = -0.01 Naira so you’ll end up paying me N5 million 😉

    Boso
    One would think that they’d run a spellcheck before sending stuff out.

    Belle
    Are you sure?

    Nilla

    Ha ha. I should have something up in the next one hour.

    Nyemoni
    Nah, I’ve got too much on my hands as it is. No point communicating with some hopeless idiot.

    Afropinay
    You this girl. I know your mind goes to naughty stuff that bears the slightest resemblance to whatever someone’s talking about. So what does furo mean?

    Bibi
    Well, they do come everyday don’t they?

    Mari
    What still amazes me is the number of people that fall for such scams.

    Vera
    True. I’m surprised you didn’t ask for your share, oh green-eyed one!

    In My Head and Around Me
    Of course I won’t. I gave Belle your share!

    It’s a joke. The person(s) who sent me the e-mail misspelt ‘Euros.’
