출근을 해서 메일을 확인하던 중 뜻밖의 메일이 있음을 알게되었다.
그 이름도 유명한 스팸편지함에 있던 메일인데...
내용인즉슨 이렇다.

Hello, I am Mrs. Safia Farid Ahmed from Khurdish tribe of Iraqi, 72 years by age and retired teacher, I will need your assistance for investment of the fund deposited by my late Husband before he was killed by the insurgent, kindly let me know the procedure of Non Citizen investing in your country, after reading your info through web site by my Son Ali, we decided to contact you, kindly let me know the best business interest in your country and get back to me through this mail xxx@hotmail.com and xxx@rediffmail.com I wait for your urgent response. Amount for investment $3.8m.

380만 달러라면... 한 번 생각해볼만한 가치가 있으니까, Ali가 누굴까하고 생각해봤다.
해외 경험도 거의 없고... 해외 친구는 더더욱 없는 나로썬 도저히 생각나지 않았다.
혹시, 인도네시아에 있을 때 같이 일했던 사람 중 한 명일지도 몰라 곰곰이 생각해봤지만... 모르는 이름이었다.
그래서 요즘은 이렇게 사기를 치는구나라고 생각하기로 했고, 간단히, 답장을 보냈다.

그랬더니 답장이 또 왔다.

내가 영어로 메일을 주고 받다니.... ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
이거 꽤나 재밌네 풉.
또 답장을 보냈더니, 얼마안있어 답장이 왔다.

이 할머니가 꽤나 적극적이다.
그래서 이번엔 폰 번호를 알려줘볼까 생각중이다.
정말 전화가 올까? 후후
