    I'm rich!

    I've received an email from the United Nations no less - it's got a picture of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon no less, so it must be true.

    I'm getting US$500,000!

    I must find time to send off for that form!

    (seriously, does anyone actually fall for a scam like this!)

    Despite the fact it was sent to Elsiegee, I've replied on her behalf and think we should split the money three ways. I've also advised the sender of the correct use of 'there' and 'their'.

    I'm loathe to mention this at school... they might want me to pay for the new printer we need... * wonders * "shall I bother going in at all tomorrow?"

    @chrbb; I'll agree to a 3 way split. There's plenty for all of us and totally approve of your pedantry!

    We're got ofsted tomorrow and wednesday, so I'd welcome my share of the money to plant a forest somewhere to replace all the paper that the teachers have printed in the past few days.

    Unless the other triplets aren't geeks and therefore Witch is the sole tripletgeek. Otherwise known as THE Tripletgeek.

    It MUST be REAL, as it uses CAPITAL letters to EMPHASISE words that it seems to think are IMPORTANT

    Yes, and frighteningly often.

    Joking aside, unfortunately a lot of people do fall for this kind of scam. Usually the elderley or people who are having financial difficulties.
