Okay, I know it’s a scam, even my email program recognized it as such, but I had to just laugh. I have been so overwhelmed with responsibilities in my own life lately and today I get an email entitled: My Last Will and Testament It then goes on to state that: “This is Name Withheld though I was tempted to not, I was led by my good spirit to use you as a partaker of my Last Will and Testament. I know it may sound unbelievable but this is just the truth and I honestly do not want anything from you in return. Please, get back to me for more
Mr. Name Withheld against my better judgment”
Is he freaking serious? He wants me to be responsible for his last will and testament. Dude, if I didn’t want you to know my email address was real and that I was real person I would have written you a nice email telling you where you could stick your last will and testament. I have enough responsibilities these days thank you very much. I don’t need you and your last will and testament, I have my own life to live. Geesh, some people think they can just die and someone on the Internet will probate their estate for them for free. Are you serious, dude? Die on your own dime. I am busy raising kids and an old woman over here. Too busy making beds for my guinea pig and trying to keep a car running. Too busy trying to figure out if I should stay home or go back to work. Probate your estate, haven’t had time to make my own will lately, must less read yours. Geesh! I’m sure if I read the email, he left me $80 bagillion too, and all I have to do is give him my checking account number. Heck, I could do that right here, it’s empty already, so you all could empty it out all you want. There’s not a drop of money in it anyway. I have three kids. One in college, one headed that way, one wants to cheer and be in the band. Dude, you are three scams too late. The laughs on you.
Sorry, but this scam just got me. Did he seriously think I’d want to read his will? That I’d go, oh look he left me $80 bagillion without ever meeting me. And all I have to do is put his will through probate. Yeah right. Like that process is cheap or easy. And the name which I blocked out is as common as John Doe, but more real. Where would I find his death certificate and how would he let me know when he’d died? If someone else is going to inform me, couldn’t they probate his estate? I mean seriously, didn’t he think I’d think this one through, before I corrupted my hard drive or worse yet, let him wipe out my checking account. But again, these guys must make money or they’d stop, so someone out there some where has replied to his email. What I am saying is DON’T. Let him probate his own Will. And may it be soon.
