Once in a Lifetime


‘We’re going to be millionaires!’ Tom said, showing his wife the email. ‘It’s a one time offer. A lucrative deal, all I need to do is put in my bank account details and my mother’s maiden name, and they’ll send me a form to be an on-line sales person.’

‘Maybe not, you click on that link, and it will be more than our bank account details they will steal.’

‘But I haven’t got any money in my bank anyway.’

‘At least you haven’t got a virus on your computer. Remember last week, when you said Prince Nambubu needed your help, and he would pay you back triple when his gold supply was reimbursed. It’s a scam pure and simple.’

‘What about the one saying I am going to get a tax rebate, surely that’s on the level?’

‘No, you don’t even work or pay tax. You got to be careful who you reply to, especially on the computer. If you really want to make some money, why don’t you look in the job section.’

Tom gave a scathing look, and re-read some of his emails. Surely nobody would try and scam him, he was much too clever for that.
