A SEA OF JELLIES...AND THE TROPIC OF SCAMMERS...
The sea jellies are coming... the sea jellies are coming...
Thought you'd all like to see a jelly orgy.
Now I have to apologize. I discovered that I am a scammer. Yes it is true.
I am responsible for all those LOTTERY-SWEEPSTAKES-LUCKY WINNER notifications.
I just got this email.
Dear Ms. Wood,
I have received a notification that I have received a significant sum of money from something called the Patricia Wood Awards Sweepstakes. When I rang a phone number before I would give any personal details, I was told the sweepstake was attached to your name. I was told I had won 350,000 Euros. As you can appreciate, it sounds too good to be true.
Could you verify whether you have any knowledge of this sweepstake organisation in your name? It runs out of an office in Madrid, Spain.
Thanks for your time,
okay. It's time to come clean. My minions are collecting money from unsuspecting readers.
And you all thought I was just a novelist.
MWA HA HA...
I must go now.
I have a 140 million dollar inheritance that must be claimed in Nigeria.
