In the past week I’ve inherited unimaginable sums of money from Nigeria, won several lotteries in England, been asked to re-key my financial information into my bank’s records so the ATM system wouldn’t toss me adrift – you get the picture.
Actually I am no richer than I was. I just finesse these wonderful opportunities to cash in.
How come I treat every strange piece of email as if it were spam? Why do I constantly suspect that someone out there is trying to steal what money we have?
Am I becoming paranoid? Perhaps.
On the other hand, it just could be that this heavily spammed world of the internet is getting everyone a bit edgy. Distrust is contagious and habit forming. And in these cases justified.
What a joy when you find people you can trust.
