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…

    It’s been a while since i’ve been here. just catching up on your posts, and wanted to see if i could finally post a comment. if this disappears again, ……….

  3. Azuka says:

    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 😀

    Yay! Your comment’s in.

  4. Calabar Gal says:

    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 😉

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

    Are you sure?

    I’m still working on them…

  11. controversial? good…. tell us how you really feel…

  12. Nyemoni says:

  21. Azuka says:

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

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

    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?

    Well, they do come everyday don’t they?

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

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

    Sure. Hit delete!

    Just two? You’re lucky! I’ve got 5 e-mail boxes I check everyday and I get about one every hour.

    Well, it’s going to be lamer than I thought.

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

  23. Daddy's Girl says:

    Crass scamming prats!

  24. wait is this for real. I doubt it somehow…..

  25. Azuka says:

    You enh!

    Daddy’s Girl
    Nobu? Where’s Nobu?

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