Am I too untrusting?

A lady writes to inform me that I have been awarded US$200,000 by Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, for whose charitable giving she acts as agent.

At long last, a wealthy patron, about the only way left, I suspect, of funding blue-skies development in and round Conductive Education. $200.000 is not a lot of money today in the wider scale of things but it is a fortune to me, and more than is presently available within the field of CE to fund the sorts of activities essential for safe continuation of the conductive message into the next generation.

I shall not be replying to her. I received a similar letter from her in May. Actually, both letters came to me as messages on Facebook. I did not reply to the first and, I shall not be replying to this one either.

All she wants at this stage is my address and email. Oh well, maybe some other time.

Meanwhile, feel free to contact her yourself, on your own behalf. At best, you might end up trousering my £200,000. At worst, who knows where it might lead?
