This ad has been playing on our tv quite a bit. There is a whole controversy about the farmed salmon, and I'm going to stay away from that, but I find the ad kind of funny.
I'm sure we've all seen those kind of emails. I'm not seeing so many any more, probably because my spam program is doing a better job. I just checked my gmail adress that is posted on the blog though, and there's a half dozen or so there, offering me great riches.
Last week we got an envelope in the mail addressed to Larry. It had this stamp on the front. And since we don't know anyone in Tanzania.....
And if anyone collects stamps and is interested in this uncancelled one, let me know and I'll send it to you.
Yep, here it is, offering Larry the promise of great riches!
Wouldn't you think they could at least send a decent quality photocopy, with a 'real' signature on the bottom?
Wow, the mail is slow coming out of Tanzania though.
If nothing else it was good for a laugh.
And then yesterday we saw this on the front page of one of our local papers.
We're not the only ones that have the opportunity to be rich in our neighbourhood!
A few months ago my mother got something along the same lines. Apparently they were searching for a long lost relative, due for a big inheritance. The interesting part was that the Spanish lawyer and the office mentioned actually did exist (the miracle of Google), but the contact information was different.
Just point me in their direction, I'd be happy to bite their butts
