Henry Witherspoon, retired, going a bit funny with dementia, lives alone. His favourite things are his tartan slippers, his brown woollen cardigan and, of course his cup of tea. An email comes:
The email is headed INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND & FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.
Addressing me as HONOURABLE CONTRACTOR it promises to resolve the long delayed payment of my contract.
A paragraph in the middle said:
'Nigerian Government pointed out that recently there was speculation that your fund was as a result of over invoicing of a value of contract based on the gravity of your contract fund. (Gravity?) However during our 10 day submit (summit) , we carried out diligent work on your file so as to discover the root causes of the non remittance to your fund and we ended up ascertaining your fund to be free from the above allegation.'
It is signed Donald Duke but requests that I contact the Rev Jimmy Clarke.
