I have a new friend.
the contents of Aardvark's "million-dollar ideas" notebook
are revealed for all to see!
His name is Mr John Ogbu and he's a top official of "the Federal Government of Nigeria
contract Review Committee."
Mr Ogbu is going to make me very rich -- and I know it's true because he told
Now how could I, or anyone, resist an offer like that. Hell, I bet there
are even a few former bankers who'd just love to get in on this great
money-making idea -- right?
Well, always keen to take advantage of such a golden opportunity, I fired off
a reply to Mr Ogbu,
expressing my interest in his offer.
Within a few hours, and despite the fact that his shift-lock key was obviously
giving trouble, Mr Ogbu sent me
I shall be responding to this kind-hearted civil servant today, giving him
a fax number to which he can send more information.
Oh boy, I'm excited -- I think I'll go pick up some holiday brochures and
introduce myself to the local BMW dealer!
Don't worry Aardvark readers, as soon as I get more information from Mr Ogbu,
I'll let you see what he says.
Aren't you all just so jealous?
Oh No, Not Another One!
Yesterday I received a copy of an email that had been sent to someone
who'd registered a local .nz domain name.
The email read in part:
"You are receiving this email because you have been selected to
receive the opportunity to work with us to develop your site or future
sites. Obviously your business has recognised the importance of an Internet
presence and we would like to offer you our services in getting your site
Boy, it looks like I'm not the only lucky one these days eh? Fancy that --
being lucky enough to be selected for such an opportunity!
Of course this was spam -- so I contacted the aspiring web designer to see
if he was stupid or just naive. He claimed the latter but promised that
he'd never do it again -- admitting that he'd only sent 50 such emails to
companies whose email addresses he'd plucked from the Domainz website.
Unfortunately, despite the apologies and claims of ignorance as a defense,
such a dastardly deed can't go unpunished -- so I present
this evidence to show that
perhaps he ought to polish up his web-design skills as well as his online
marketing knowledge before he makes any more pitches to clients.
