The Herald interviews Owen Glenn:
Most outrageous request received in a letter/email, asking you for money?
“Please send me Fiji dollars 10,000 my Auntie is sick.”
I had never met Auntie but I sent the money regardless and then four weeks later I receive another email, “Auntie died and I need another Fiji dollars 100,000 for her wake, can you help?”
This confirms what I thought would happen.
