Not even trying, part 7
I have a soft spot for emails from the widows or daughters of deposed sub-Saharan dictators with suitcases filled with diamonds which they want me to have in return for nothing at all. I also like correspondence from shadowy lawyers in the same region who say they have plucked my name at random from a “register of good persons” because I sound like a person who’d like to offer my bank account as a home for the vast fortune of a man who died intestate of some terrible affliction.
What I don’t like are emails like the one I received this morning.

No tragedy. No ridiculously convoluted story, nothing at all to suggest they’ve put any effort in to the mail.
Sometimes I think these 419 scammers hearts’ aren’t in their jobs any more.
