Better than Winning the Lottery!

Today I received some exciting news from the Department of Homeland Security that I must tell you about! It’s not as if tidings such as this come in every day (well they do, actually, but not from the trusty Federal Government).

It seems that Mr. (Jeh) Johnson, who left his post as Secretary of Homeland Security on January 2oth, still has a desk there. He says he’s been assigned by President Trump himself to rectify cases of fraud concerning claims to assets and to track down their true owners. It seems, he informs me, that my family and I are the rightful owners of 17.5M USD sitting in a disused Wells Fargo account that a Mr. Steven Tilley—whom I don’t know—falsely claimed belonged to him. Fantastic that they caught him at it. I hope Tilley goes to prison for a long time.

You see the letter below. It is extremely exciting news, and I’ll contact Mr. Johnson as soon as I get to the bottom of a few details. First, it’s a little odd that the letter is signed by John F. Kelly, the current Secretary AFAIK, not Mr. Johnson. Perhaps Mister Johnson just dictated the letter for Mr. Kelly to sign. Another thing is he asks if I will “confirm to me if truly you are
still alive or dead.” All I can say is it makes me happy to be alive, because it would be tough for me to confirm that I’m not. And I worry a just bit that his email comes from a gmail account, not a government mailbox, and that he got my name wrong: it isn’t Undisclosed Recipients, and he should know this. But you know the Department of Homeland Security; they do this cloak-and-dagger stuff, so this was probably just a prudent precaution to spare him and me from hackers and spammers.

I mean, he called my “My dear!” how sweet is that? So, unless someone who reads this comes up with a good reason not to claim my 17.5 million, I will tell Mr. Johnson-Kelly next week that I appreciate the work they have done on my behalf and go through the formalities to obtain the funds. God bless the Trump Administration for helping us to build our dream house!

Here’s the letter in its entirety. Don’t let the typos get to you; they must have many letters to get out and are probably short of proofreaders.

Homeland Security Mr. Johnson,
