I’m Rich!

I’m Rich!


Movin on up!


This could possibly be my last posting to this scrap-heap of a website.

It has been fun while it lasted, but soon My Odd Sock will be filthy rich.



That is, according to the email I received below…


Greetings you have been gifted $5 MILLION USD From Mr. Bill Gates. Contact me at this email for your claim:GATESFoundation17@outlook.com”

You read that!  Five Mill from Mr. Bill F-ing Gates!

And you know it is legit because of the email address for the Gates Foundation! 

Who knew Bill Gates used Outlook!

The email continues…

“I hope this information meet you well as I know you will be curious to know why/how I selected you to receive a sum of $5,000,000,00 USD, our information below is 100% legitimate, 
please see the link below: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_%26_Melinda_Gates_Foundation”


That explains it because EVERYTHING in Wikipedia is fact!

“I BILL GATES and my wife decided to donate the sum of $5,000,000,00 USD to you as part of our charity project…We prayed and searched over the internet for assistance and i saw your profile on Microsoft email owners list and picked you.”

Young me. First grade.



(Must have been my cute picture from 1st grade that captured Mr. Gates’ heart!)



The email goes on…

“Melinda my wife and i have decided to make sure this is put on the internet for the world to see…not getting any younger and you can imagine having no much time to live.”


Another fact.  I did some research and verified Melinda IS IN FACT the name of Bill Gates’ wife!  

This deal is getting sweeter by the sentence!

Though I’m not sure I understand what he means by…“having no much time to live.”

Please explain further, Mr. Gates…

“i am no longer strong am sick and am writing you from hospital computer. And me and my wife will be traveling to Germany for Treatment.”

WTF!  Bill Gates?  Sick?  (I wish the hospital computer had Microsoft to correct his punctuation & grammatical errors!)


“I am hoping that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously over there in your City.”

(He must have noticed my 2007 Honda Fit with 132,000 miles.)


In closing, the email says…


“Thank you for accepting our offer, we are indeed grateful You Can Google my name for more information: Mr Bill Gates or Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Remain Blessed
Mr Bill Gates”


He’s right!  I googled his name & all checks out!  I am rich!

So long, suckers.  I’ll soon be living on easy street…once I supply Mr. Gates with some personal information.  (That may sound risky to you, but a mere trade-off for FIVE MILLION DOLLARS!

So bite me, Nigerian prince…I’m getting my coffers from none other than Mr. Bill f-ing Gates!

Life IS good.

  1. After you receive your $5,000,000, I have some oceanfront property to sell you in Colorado! We are going to miss you MOD. Now you will have enough money to buy a PAIR of socks :-).

    1. Yes, Margaret…you can say “You knew me when.” Probably be moving to FLA to live near your gated community (When will they let you out, by the way?).
