Another reason to loathe email scammers…

Email Scam

As someone with a somewhat uncommon surname – in fact, I personally know ALL the other people in the whole world who share this surname – it always faintly annoys me to get emails like this…

The fleeting hope that such an email might be genuine — that I’m due some great, multi-million pound inheritance because some nice elderly chap has recently had the good grace to shuffle off his mortal coil leaving his entire estate to me (as his apparently favourite relative) and his pet cat — is always swiftly crushed by a sentence that runs something like this: “He [the deceased] is related to you going by the lineage, surname and country of origin.”

So much for my dreams of buying a private Caribbean island paradise anytime soon…
