You probably remember me telling you about my former staff member – living in Iloilo – hooked up with my other friend (formerly living in Davao)….? If not… here’s the link; http://www.philippinefailblog.com/the-perfect-unsuccessful-scam/
Just got a nice letter from my man – which I copy-paste and post here. I was written in partly English-Danish, so I composed the following in a draft for you.
Dear Friend Across The Oceans.
Just write to tell you how happy I’m living my life back home. You will not recognize my house and surely not my bedroom, after Elizabeth moved in.
I write you to tell you about all my “new friends” i got when retiring back home.
My Danish State pension arrives every 5th in the month – and should that be on a Saturday or Sunday, rest assured my money are here the day after. All work after a priceless clock….. and so do the visits to my home.
Following your advice and with the help from Elizabeth, my pension from your company are always paid in to a different bank account than that of the State Pension from Denmark.
That’s why my “new friends” and part of my family (only) think I get about 31.000 peso in pension every month. The rest of the money are kept and saved for me and my family, so I can enjoy it with them and Elizabeth.
We talked about this before so you know what’s it’s all about when telling you, that when I came back here, I knew I had 5-6 good friends. Suddenly…and mostly after the Danish State Pension started to arrive on said dates, my “followers of friends” just grew and got so large, that not even I could count them for sure. Be assured that my real friends are still here with me, but the numbers of “new friends” just grew every month.
The “new friends” never visited me on the 2nd or the 4th of the month. NEVER…. They always came on the 5th in the month. It was so accurate on the date I always wondered “who needs a calendar…?”
Over the years my 5-6 regular friends was now growing to a flock of 30-40 different men and women. Yes, I did know them, but why did they know me….? I decided to put it for a test. On Thursday 5th May 2016 the regulars was in, some even came so early I think they woke up my chickens…hehehehe.
Yes, I did feed them, bought the beer, lending them some money, bought more food and beer, but at the end on every visit I handed them all with this message;
“Dear Friend. You are always welcome to my home. I’m always happy to see you and to enjoy our time together. I’m writing this note to you because I have a problem. My Danish State Pension will not come any more, so this month I got my last pension from Denmark. The reason for this is that I claimed for my Philippine Military Pension. Since applying for AFP, my Danish State Pension has been suspended, awaiting the outcome of how much I can claim every month from the military pension fund. Therefore i beg for your help. I will have no income for the many month ahead until all matters are settled. Please help me and bring me some food and money for my bills. For you who borrowed money, please repay me sooner than later”
To My Dear Friend In Denmark…. I’m happy to tell you I still have 6 good friends. One handed me some food in June, gave me a piglet in July and the same friend even baked bread for me. Another really good friend came along with beer for me – and invited me for a chicken-fight – where he paid for my bets. My sister came by with balut – I really enjoyed that day. My friends and my family have never been more close to me as they are now.
Do I really have to tell you that I lied to all my “new friends…?????
Yes, I did lie… and my man… I really liked to do that. My Danish State Pension will never stop – actually it increased here in August. My “new flock of friends” believed me and now think I have no money at all – and show me how good friends they are by staying away now I’m lost for a income from abroad.
How lucky can a man in his old age be…hehehehe.
How are you my friend.?”
I’m still having a good time reading this letter from my friend.
Have you ever have “friends” who disappeared when your money runs out…?
