Nospetco accounts frozen

Or at least, that is the gist I have been hearing since I got holed up in a company retreat of recent. Actually, the pace of office work has been so frenetic the last few weeks that I don’t even have time to look at myself in the mirror.

Not only are Nospetco accounts frozen by EFCC, I also heard that the cousin schemes: Sefteg, Wealthsolutions, Treasure Lines also got the deep freezer treatment. The truth is, I don’t care if they are frozen, defrosted or smashed. All I know is that deep inside me, it is all scam. It still amazes me how people could be so greedy that they become gullible.

Somewhere on the internet, someone (a Dipo Tepede’s friend) wrote some articles which can’t be better written about this get rich quick scheme. You can link to the articles from here.

Marriage According to Nairaland

I was chatting with one of the few friends I made on Nairaland (before I left) yesterday and she told me she was getting married. Well, getting married is one of those things that have happened to all my friends. But this is different. She told she’s hooking up with one of the dudes she met there.

What is tripping me is that I never knew this kind of stuff really happens. I have seen stories like that on the net but I used to think they are hypes and falsies.

To cap it all, she said despite the fact that Nairaland is somehow messed up, she was still able to find love. If a messed up place can get you love, maybe it ain’t all that messed up after all.

I wish my friend a happy married internet life.
