Quitting my day job..
Cause I'm rich!! An e-mail this morning...

"After several attempts to reach you on phone, I deemed it necessary and urgent to contact you via your e-mail address, to inform you that I am a delegate from the United Nations Human Settlements Programme and I'm here to notify you finally about your outstanding compensation payment of $2,811,041.00 USD with identification number xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx...

Take note that you will pay a shipping/handling fee of $95 USD for delivery of your compensation check.

Thanks for your attention"

Make sure you send that money in certified funds, may want to also send them all your bank accout #'s just in case there's a problum.

Doc Holliday 10-23-2012 08:42 AM

Maybe now you can buy that you always wanted......:laughing:

Good for you! I qualified as well, and although it turns out that there is a little more to it than just the $95, I at least know for sure that it is going to be worth the time and effort. I actually got my email a couple of weeks ago, and was a little skeptical at first, maybe like you were, but decided to go with my gut, and sent my $95. And, sure enough, as soon as they got it, my new friend Bawaki called, and filled me on on the details. I obviously haven't met him yet, but will when he comes to visit some of his family over the holidays, and am looking forward to it because he sounds like a really great guy. Anyway, it turns out that things are pretty much the same all around the world, and, as honest as Bawaki is, the organization still does some goofy things, not unlike when you go to buy a television, vehicle, or whatever else; they set you up for one thing, and then only have the higher priced model in stock, or there are a few minor costs attached, which aren't presented up front. Well, the latter is how the organizarion that Bawaki represents works, but because he is such a great guy, I am willing to look beyond the way that the organization represents itself. Anyway, long story short, Bawaki is working very hard to get the check to me, but due to international exchange rates, daily bank changes, etc., and the fact that he is personally checking security at each and every point along the way, it is taking longer than I imagined, and there are naturally costs attached for all of his time and trouble, but he is very good about calling every day, and instructing me as to where to send any additional monies. It's only a bit over $10,000 now, but, on the other hand, I would not have referred to it as "only $10,000" a few weeks ago, whereas today I feel much more comfortable, financially speaking. As the excitement builds, there are times that I wish I could call Bawaki, just to make sure that everything is moving along okay, but, unfortunately, in his line of business, there are a lot of people trying to take advantage of him, so I understand the reason that he prefers not to give his number out. Anyway, again, that's great! Sorry if I bored you, but, like you I am sure, I am just so excited, and I figured that I may as well give you some insight regarding what I have learned as far as how the process works.

Two million? Is that all you're getting? Heck I'm getting $13,000,000................just as soon as I send the $10,000 to help the dude pay off the Sandinistsas........................ or was it the Al Qaida? :thumbsup:

I was singled out for my Christian values and am not only getting $57M of my own but in return for taking on the 17 year old daughter of a government official who was poisoned, am being entrusted with her trust accounts as well.

Meanwhile I have a package waiting at O'Hare that cannot clear customs until I advance funds to the solicitor who sent it on behalf of my long lost relative.

I have my problems though. I got a final warning from FBI Agent Ross suggesting that a warrant has been issued for my arrest and that I must send bank account, social security and birthdate information to sort out an identity issue. I did that today since the return address was a yahoo address. I figured if Agent Ross was taking time to email me from home the least I could do is be more cooperative.

All of this has taken so much time though I have not had a chance to review all the attachments I opened and then saved for more careful review later. And since I am not greedy, I have stopped claiming the international lottery prizes.

Wow! What are the odds that so many on this forum have become rich? Woo hoo! It gives me hope that one day I too will get a notification of millions of dollars owed to me.

But what if the email comes and I'm too busy working to read it? We can't have that! The best thing for me to do is to quit my job and wait in front of the computer day and night.

This is so exciting!!!

oh'mike 10-24-2012 07:17 PM

Many years back ,in the days of pagers and pay phones, I got a 911 page from my oldest daughter--

When I called she was excited to tears," Dad, Come home!! You don't have to work any more!! You just won a million dollars!!!!"

Yep, Publishers clearing house------Ed McMahn (might) be bringing me a check----

Give customary two weeks unless you are contracted. Trust me. I do not know how to share the wealth since I stopped being cynical, careful and dumfounded at times. I never thought I could be rich and no offense to black people in my life, including my stepbrother, I never thought they would pick me.

Hey look, I am so overwhelmed and somewhat limited in mobility these days. I have dealt with customs brokers all of my life and with people that pick up shipments at docks and airports. This one offered seems special though. There are inheritance documents attached to it. I always knew my parents royal pains in the ass but to find they are actual royalty? I need someone I can trust to go claim the inheritance. You may have half. Even though I do not know you. And you may be so busy you ignore this offer.

The trust account of the Royal Prince of wherever should be directly deposited any day now into my account. I gave all the international transit information needed and I bank with Chase. I found it weird I had to send airfare her royal majesty, Princess Gotahaveet. She is from an African country that poisoned her Father so I want to be supportive. The airline did nail my credit card for a seatbelt extension so I think she is coming in matching US standards for young women these days. And not the photo offered when I negotiated this deal.

Trust me. I did not believe in the offers with email addresses that did not match organizations names until I found the FBI agent willing to help me sort out the person using mine. From his Yahoo address.

I am jealous. Of the millions I have made just this week in Euros and British pounds just to start, only kicking out $20-30K US in fees, I have never yet been offered participation in a foreign language of any kind, let alone Arabic.

You da man Chris. You may paint wearing no pants and be into crabs but clearly you are also a man of the World. I do wonder what sites you visit to attract such offers though.

With regime changes, maybe the MidEast just really wants someone who can patch bullet holes and rehang tacky looking wallpaper quickly.

What I want to know is where are we going to park our yachts?
