Is the Universe mocking me? Two more e-mail messages from peddlers of variations on Nigerian-letter scams. They include another from “Adams Smith” of the “African Development Bank” who offered me a third of $15 million in exchange for my bank account numbers. (Question: Do all these con artists wink at you — while they’re trying to scam you – by using names that play off those of authors of famous books like Wealth of Nations?) I blocked messages from “Adams Smith” yesterday but he seems to have crashed the barrier.
The Secret says that you should envision what you want, not what you don’t. So maybe I made a mistake by blocking Smith’s e-mail and mentally writing outraged letter to appropriate authorities? Today I’m planning instead to visualize opening my e-mail tomorrow and finding only messages from a) friends, b) visitors to One-Minute Book Reviews, or c) movie producers wishing to option novels for sum equal to cost of Gulfstream V. Hope that no producer is named “Adams Smith” (in case e-mail block has taken effect).
Requested from Universe on May 1: $1,000,000
Received so far: $825 (hard labor) + $58 (lottery) = $883
Universe owes me (according to The Secret): $999,117 (at a minimum)
