55 Flash Fiction Friday - The Text Message

This meme is hosted by Mr. Knowitall.

So I was trying to figure out what to write for today's Flash Fiction Friday and was coming up blank.  Then I saw the above Tweet show up in list for #librarianproblems and knew right away what I would write!

“Hi how can I help you?”
“I won some money and I need to go online to fill out the paper work to claim the money. Can you help me?”
“Ok what’s the web address?” She hands me her phone and I read the text message. “This is a scam.”
“But it says I won!”


  1. Once I got a phone call telling me I'd won a brand new car and all I needed to do was sent them $1500 for taxes to claim it.
    They seemed very surprised when I told them I wasn't interested.

  2. Ha!
    I always say that inspiration comes from the strangest places.
