RICHYou guys, I just got the most exciting email!  It’s from a guy named George Afari.

I don’t know him, but he has no reason to lie about wanting to make me his next of kin and giving me money!  I’m gonna be rich, thanks to George!

According to his email, I’ve come into a “very huge amount of money.”

It appears as if my good friend George sent the email to “undisclosed recipients” although I’m sure it doesn’t mean it’s a mass email to random email addresses.

money going into piggy bankNope.  I’m sure it just says that because he wants to be super secretive about transferring this large amount of money.

I don’t want to count my eggs before they’re hatched, mostly because we use Egg Beaters, but this could be big.

My gut is telling me this email is totally legit.  My gut is also telling me I should have ordered more Girl Scout cookies.

Below is the email I received, which I cut and pasted for your review.  I know you would doubt me so I wanted to prove I’m not lying and am totally gonna be rich.

I’ve removed the email address of George Afari, as I don’t want you guys emailing him and trying to collect my “very huge amount of money.”

I like you guys, but I don’t trust you that much.  Here it is:

George Afari

I know what you’re going to say; “But Lisa, this could be a scam.  He may be contacting you to get your banking information and then he will wipe you out.  Don’t do it.”

In response to that, I say “Don’t be a hater. You’re just jealous I am going to be super rich and you’re not.  Deal with it and maybe I’ll give you a piece of the pie.”

Yeah, like I’m going to actually give you a piece of pie.  It’s pie!  Hmf!

change1In response to your jealous inquiry about whether this is legitimate,  allow me to also respond by pointing out that he says he has “all the legal documents to back it up.”

So yeah, don’t you feel stupid?

Would George Afari lie to me?  Why would he?  He sought me out individually to tell me about my very huge amount of money.

He doesn’t have anything to gain by giving me money.  It’s not like he would get my personal information and exploit it.

Come on guys, let’s not be so hateful or judgey.  Once again, you’re letting your jealousy get in the way of good judgement.

The fact that he sent this to me at 3:18 A.M. also bolsters the belief this is a totally real and legitimate email.

I mean, did we really think he would send it during regular business hours?  Um, no.

He sent it during stripper-working hours.  I suspect it’s most likely to avoid any jealous hackers coming onto my page and stealing the money.

George is thoughtful that way.

twenties hanging upI hope you can be happy for me, dear reader, as I’m excited for my new life with “a very huge amount of money.”

I suspect with this kind of cash, I can buy a condo in Florida and just chill at the beach, fanning myself with $1,000 bills.

I don’t know if they make those, but if they don’t, I will have them made…because I can.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to price Lamborghinis.  I need to be an educated consumer, as there are a lot of shysters out there, and I don’t want to get scammed!

Don’t forget to apply to be in my entourage.  You don’t have to complete the full application.  Do what you want and send it in.  It’s gonna be awesome.

  1. Have I told you lately that I love you? And I’m not just saying that because you’re coming into a huge amount of money.

  2. Lisa, love the humour in your blog! Thanks for visiting my little Blog Tips blog – you might also enjoy my main blog Carole’s Chatter. Re the DVR – easy to do – just grab the nearest 5 year old! And get them to reset clocks etc while you’re at it. Cheers

    • Aw, thanks for stopping by, Carole! I also appreciate the recommendation to ask a 5 year old. I’m not offended, but bummed I didn’t think of it.

      I’m sure as I get older, I’m going to have to enlist random neighbor kids to help me with normal things, as I can’t seem to figure anything out. If I didn’t have someone else set up this blog for me, I’d probably be writing a response to you right now on a note card and sending it via courier pigeon.

      Thank goodness I don’t have to do that anymore. Can you image how much bird poop you’d have at your house with all the pigeons hanging around waiting for a job to do?

      Thanks for reading and commenting! 🙂

  3. You’re totally going to share it with me, it looks like you forgot to mention it but you totally are.

    • Just leave it on your face! I hear that’s coming back and it’s gonna be a thing.

      It’s also great for your complexion…and your sense of humor.

      I’m so glad you love my sarcasm. Some people totally don’t get it. Those people make me sad, but then people like you come along and make it all better! 🙂

  5. Oh lordy…I can’t believe people are still sending these things out!!

    Thanks for linking up with the Bloglovin Collective!

    • I also can’t believe these are still going around, but it makes me think people must still fall for these. Why else would they send them?

      These scammers really need to learn they’d be a lot more believable if they used proper English and grammar. Wait….I don’t do that…

      Thanks for stopping by. I just learned what a blog hop was and it’s made me a very unproductive worker at my job.

      So many blogs, so little time!

  6. Okay, this is obviously legit. Do it.

    • I knew you’d understand and be supportive. Just remember that I won’t forget that it was you who were so supportive.

      Oh, and with this newfound money, I can totally buy you a ticket, hotel, etc. to Blogher13! Happy faces all around!

  7. Lisa- this is a scam. I just wanted to make sure you were aware. Sorry to let your hopes down.

      Can you believe people actually fall for this stuff? Obviously they do or these scammers wouldn’t keep sending out the emails. It’s crazy. But, you know, this time it’s different, right? Yeah, it’s my time now. 🙂
