Inflation is clearly catching up with the dear departed. These days I won't even get out of bed for less thatn $10m. Just as well the late Brigadier Amer Ali Nayef was filthy rich then, otherwise I might have had to stay in bed all day.
Brigadier Nayef, naturally, died an untimely death. Ok, it wasn't natural, he was shot along with his son. The scammer forget to arrange an untimely death for his wife - how careless. Sorry - this story just won't stand up as a Booker prize entry!
Did this come from HSBC? Do I need to ask? Of course not, it came from an educational institution in Hsinchu in Taiwan. Yet another college who fail to keep their students fully occupied!
