This landed in my catcher account yesterday
Quote:

Although I am gratified that half of the Nigerian government showed up for a meeting to talk about me, I didn't really want to bait this guy so for fun I wrote back:

Quote:
I think somebody made a mistake. Janet White [the name I usually see in this format] was the woman I sent. I don't know anybody named Tina Ray.



I don't know how anybody could say they are getting smarter. I got this back today.

I am not sure if the image at the bottom is supposed to be his ID card or some on-line business card. And I have no idea what the text on the right side of the image is about.

(Have you ever known a banker who wears a red bow tie?)

Surprisingly bankers do wear red bow ties as that really is Lamido Sanusi (no need to leet his name, it's all over the net) Chucky Saludo's replacement at the Bank of Nigeria.

Fashions and protocol shift and change, come and go in different bits of the world at different times, and banking is not usually synonymous with good taste anyway...

That aside, great business card. Maybe complain that it's missing a RSOT so how can you tell it's genuine?

Thanks for the link. At first I thought I was dealing with a lad with stunted Photoshop skills. But it's a case of a lazy lad copying the work of a lazy journalist.

@sunshine: I had a soft spot for Charlie Saludo. I will try to be just as considerate to his successor.

@manbiteslion: Maybe he is a real banker but the red bow tie and pin stripe suit makes him look like a guy who once tried to sell me a timeshare. RSOT? When he has his certification underneath the graphic? And who can question what looks like a watermark on the last line?

Laughing

So maybe I'll write back and tell him that his professional-looking graphics have earned him my trust.

Hi lakeside77

I'm gobsmacked that the ID is legit. Seriously thought it was a piss poor joke. Still do. (shakes head)

@ internationalchrysis - how did you manage to find the link to that CNN thing via Google? Cool trick to know ...

Even the Vanguard article looked whiffy. No wonder lads don't raise a sweat producing crap ID's. The legit ones look as lame as a three dollar bill.

BTW - the guy in the photo does look like a lad so maybe ...
Shocked

I think the journalist needs a slap more than the lad. Very Happy
