Windfall, Yea Right!
Now a days most of us would love to have this happen. A Five Million Dollar Windfall falling out of the sky right into your lap. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Just like winning the Lottery. There’s that old saying! If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Not true that is. I don’t know how many of these emails I have deleted. But they just keep coming. There’s another saying that comes to mind as well. There’s a sucker born every minute. These emails are fun to read. If it’s not this one it’s the one from soldiers in Afghanistan that are looking for someone to give the money they found in banks where the whole family has been killed. Most likely by them. All they need is somebody that maybe a long distant relative so the Windfall money can be released by the bank. Or not even a relative because they will give you all the documentation to assume some false identity for the bank. Little do they know. We already have a false identity with the legal name and birth certificate. Hey, fraud is fraud.
Or the one about some young girl looking to come to this country that needs an honest person to help her move her large Windfall sum of money over from some war-torn country so she can get an American education. She would be happy to invest in your business. She will even send you pictures of her in case your interested in a young wife. I often wonder, If she has all this money why can’t she buy a plane ticket and come here on her own. Oh, that’s right she needs us to pay for something which she will give us a check for and pay us back. Good luck on the check clearing the bank. Funny how they never send you cash. Because sending cash through the mail is illegal. And they are good honest people. LOL, Just another Windfall Scam.
It appears these idiots think Americans are stupid and that we always want their money when in fact, it is they themselves that are stupid and need the money from us. They offer us a Windfall but before we can get it we always have to pay for something. Plus they want all our personal information. The only thing they don’t ask for is the S.S. number. However with the S.S. number they can open a credit card account and get a credit card on-line using the information you just gave them. Guess who the banks are going to come after for the payments.
At times I Am tempted to fill out their request for information with a bunch of curse words and bogus information then send it back to them but that would just be a waste of my time. Deleting is much faster. Here’s the latest Windfall scam I just received today so I felt I would have some fun and pick it apart just for grins and giggles.
I AM retired. Another word for jobless. So wouldn’t you know it, I have some time. I will put my comments in purple Italics ending with an exclamation point! Just having some fun, well because I Am retired, and that’s not like a recap.

Yea, your disclaimer makes this look real alright. Oh what is the employee’s name? I would like to ask him/her/it why they sent this email to me. I know, I will contact Aaron Smith and give him a link to this post that way he can gather all my information from it!

Oh you missed unauthorized reading by some government organization. And of course banks never accept any liability for anything they do. Just like you, they use our money to make money and give us nothing in return. Speaking of viruses, your kind is a major corrupt virus on this world. To bad the world doesn’t have a virus checking procedure, scanning and deleting you and yours that would make the world a better place. Presto! you’re deleted!
Well that was fun. And they think we are stupid. This email is so full of holes. Why would any bank or world organization offer five million dollars to somebody that never knew they were owed a five million dollar Windfall. Wouldn’t they send a letter to your personal address from their list? Maybe it’s because they are kind and honest. And emails are so much faster and safer and more secure. In a world where (Greed) is the virus. People that have caught the virus (Greed) are simply looking to infect somebody else. Is that somebody else you?
It’s difficult for me to believe that people would fall for a scam like this. I Am not saying I have never been scammed. In truth I feel we all have to some degree. I have just learned my lesson. Not to believe a word that comes out of anybodies mouth. Believing that money will solve all the problems if I only had more. That’s the problem with belief. Hear let me break down this word for you. Belief.
(Be) nothing wrong with being unless we are being something we are not. Unfortunately most are being something they are not. What I mean is are you really a Doctor or Lawyer, or bus Driver or even a stay at home Mom?
(Lie) will that one is self-evident. That’s exactly what this email is, a lie. It appears lying has become the the new norm, as every few know what truth is. We have been lied to our whole life. It just occurred to me. If somebody believes a lie does that make it truth?
And (F) well, what’s the first word you would say after being scammed out of your hard-earned money on this scam? Yep, Fuck. What if the word was spelled this way beliefuck. This system is all about money and the system will do anything to get it.
The concept of money is simply that. A concept. When in truth money, or some form of money, has caused all the problems this world and humanity has and is facing since it’s conception. Can you name one problem in the world today that doesn’t have money involved some how?
Can you even imagine a world without money where all your needs are met? Needs being the keyword. Where we all work for the Spiritual uplifting of Mankind. How about for the Spiritual uplifting of you? Just by you being a Spiritual being isn’t the world a better place? That’s Spiritual not Religious. There’s your Windfall.
