I got a personal email from Mr. Bernanke – head of the Federal Reserve

It’s the price of success: people start to think you’re omnipotent.
Ben Bernanke

How special do I feel???

Today I received a personal email from the head of the US Federal Reserve, none other than Ben Bernanke himself!

Now, I found the following things a little strange about the email

  1. He uses hotmail. Come on, Ben! Are times so tough that they have shut down all the .gov servers?
  2. He personally gets involved in financial transfers
  3. I was unaware that people actually had accounts with the Federal Reserve Bank. I didn’t know it was like a real bank.

But thanks to good old Ben being so diligent, once I give him my personal banking details he will release $10.5 million to me! Woo hoo!

I got a personal email from Fed Reserve head Ben Bernanke - he'll help me get $10.5 mil from Nigeria!

For those of you that haven’t figured it out – this is sarcasm. This is a spam email. If you get an email like this delete it, or blog about it. Just don’t hand over your banking details.
