They offer me lotsa money--lotsa, lotsa money. Somehow I have been selected by a number of wealthy dying people to receive their entire estates. The lawyers have stumbled upon my email address at the last possible moment and I can receive the entire fortune for a small fee --mailed promptly to a post office box.
I also have apparently been placed on a list of reliable money handlers. I can make money by simply receiving and forwarding money -- for a small initial fee, of course. (Late breaking news: this morning I leaarned that I won the UK lottery. The UN will release the money to me if I send all of my personal information and of course a small fee.)
Are people really gullible enough to fall for these scams? I suppose if people want to believe something bad enough, or they are desperate enough, they will send in their money to receive-- nothing.
There is one inheritance list that I know I am on. In fact, the inheritance is already in my possession. I draw from the rich resources daily.
I pray that the eyes of your heart
may be enlightened in order that
you may know the hope to which he has called you,
the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
which he exerted in Christ
when he raised him from the dead
and seated him at his right hand
in the heavenly realms,
far above all rule and authority,
power and dominion,
and every title that can be given,
not only in the present age
but also in the one to come.
This inheritance is eternal and free. No investment or wiring fees required. AND no time limit -- it is timeless.
