I've screwed up again!!
That's peanuts. I recieved a email years ago telling me I was the only known surviving family member of the late Bill Gates.
I always wondered if Bill knew he was no longer with us!
Bah. It would prolly explode in the bag as I ran away leaving me with red dye running down my legs... :-)
Good one Ross!
I think everyone is missing the obvious, the evidence of him trying to give the money away are the thousands of emails to people stating that if they would just send them account information, fees and yada yada yada he would transfer it to them. The 27 billions is the amount he had scammed from those people over the 15 years. Just my perspective.
He could have mailed it to me..
Perhaps he was a T guy and that is just money he saved by not buying water pumps.
That's funny, Michael, but did you ever thing that there might have been another William "Bill" Gates?
I am so glad you are here, because I have to agree with you and probably would not figure it out myself.
Ummm, this is a meme...and they are almost always fake...this is one of the fake ones...in that it isn't 27 billion dollars...it's 100 million dollars taken in a drug bust. You cant see it very well from this picture, but those boxes on the left side are what they stow the money in.
Also Nigerian money the "Naira", is pretty much worthless compared to other world wide currencies...one naira is worth in American dollars 0.0028 cents (I think the bloody Peso is worth more than that). Which is why they try and scam you out of your money...because compared to them, even the poorest of families here are extremely rich compared to the anyone of one of them...just my 2¢.
There ARE 2 "Bill" Gates in the Greater Seattle area !
One's a dummy ID to throw folks off. . . . .
The Nigerian Naira is worth about three times that of the South Korean Won. So it ain't all bad.
DAvid D! You are back! How is the theater project?
WARNING: THREAD DRIFT!
Wayne: going well, but still occupying almost ALL of my time. I get a day off today! Well, mostly, I'll still have to drive down to the workshop to check on some rodent traps. And I hope to plaster cast an ornamental detail today, if I can get the mold set up. I'll take the camera and take a few pics to post here.
Here's the new ceiling of the organ chamber going in;
