MY DESK: MADISON - So, we've debunked on this site multiple times the idea that you're not going to hear from a long-lost, never-known, person who has millions for you.
The kicker to the email we're sharing today from Karen in Middleton is that while it shares the profile described above, it offers to give her that money with a catch: she's supposed to donate it.
Why I picked this email to share with you is because the list of things/causes/people she's supposed to give to made me chuckle as it encompasses many of the worthy causes in the world today.
Want to give to religious institutions? Well, Karen can upkeep churches, mosques and synagogues with the money from Mrs. Honoour Rosser. Further, she can help "widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially," but only if she's to be trusted.
I think she may have failed that test by sending this to me, but I'm inclined to give her a pass and think she's a pretty good egg by wanting to keep any of her neighbors from falling for drivel spam/scam like this. Thanks Karen for sending this in.
Just hit delete.
