    I'm rich! I'm rich!

    I just now discovered that I too have received this "unapproved visitor message" on Pet Talk!

    --------->
    My Name is Mrs Betty Jim from Unites State I want to tell you this because I don't have any other option than to say it, I married to Mr. Jim Benson who worked with Unites State embassy in Ghana for nine years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for eleven years without a child.
    He died after a brief illness that lasted for only five days. Since his death I decided not to remarry, When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$ 8.5m (Eight Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars) in a bank in Accra the capital city of Ghana Presently this money is still in bank. He made this money available for exportation of Gold from Ghana mining.
    Recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last 1 months due to cancer problem. I decided to hand you over this money to take care of the less-privileged people, you will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here.
    Hoping to receive your reply: in my mailbox: [betty_jim42@hotmail.com]
    From Mrs Betty.
    -------

    AT LAST! I can get that Porsche I've had my eye on for years!

    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    Yes, I remember.. I couldn't find it yesterday, but I'd forgotten it was in Town Hall. I thought it was here in General.

    Just wanted to add to the merriment...

    Phesina, you are a perfect person to do some good for animals and the people who love them, using Mrs. Betty Jim's $8.5 million!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Well, Elyse, since you're getting it from Mrs. Betty Jim too (http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthre...isitor-message), we can share the wealth and distribute it to our PT friends and animal shelters and caretakers worldwide!

    Congratulations on your windfall, Pat! Here's a great idea for you - - invest and become a major stockholder with the Haggis In A Hurry Shoppe. Then it can become a national franchise earning millions a year and increase your new found fortune. Not only that, haggis could soon become the new American favorite. Your possibilities are endless and the Catmobile kitties will find a Haggis In A Hurry Shoppe wherever they go.
