Word Bank

Talk about the Nigerian 4-1-9 scam in all its many variations, such as bogus checks sent from Nigeria to purchase used cars in the U.S. and many other variations of this scam.

Word Bank

Postby Arthur Rubin » Tue Feb 24, 2015 5:05 am

I just got one from the Australian Human Rights Commission saying I have a US$2.5 million account at the Word Bank. (I've been told I have a good vocabulary, but this is ridiculous.)

Other names mentioned in the spam are Chief Justice Roberts (supposedly the contact, @outlook.com), Secretary of State Kerry, UN "President General" Ban Ki-moon, and Prime Minister Abbott.

I've always wanted to make a withdrawal from the Word Bank, as long as it isn't in Microsoft Word®.

I am a fan of the NPR quiz show "Says You"; and among my favorite parts of the show comes when one of the team is given an obscure word, such as "frass". One of the three team members is given a card with the correct definition; and the other two are given cards which read something like "please fake a definition". It's a lot of fun to try to guess whose definition is correct -- and it's also difficult, because the panelists are all intelligent enough to come up with some excellent bluffs.

Maybe if I could make some withdrawals from the Word Bank, I could increase my percentage of correct guesses -- although the kind of words appearing in "Says You" are probably fairly expensive.... :thinking:

I'm curious, does the bank pay interest in vowels or consonants?
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

What do you call an interbank transfer from the Word Bank?

A vowel movement.

Sorry. :naughty: FRN's are awful money. The Court only accepts Quatloos, but some days, gold dust, hens eggs, tequila (Patron preferred), roofing nails, barbed wire or cigars are acceptable substitutes. (It depends what the store is out of.) 8)
