A Valleys man has inherited $6,0000,0000 after he found out by email that his long-lost Nigerian uncle, Rev Father August Goodluck had died.
Glyn Jones, a plasterer from Troed-y-Rhiw, picked up the email on his way to Asda last night.
He told WalesOnCraic:
“I was on my way to Asda I was butt. I’d heard that they had a special offer on the pizzas like and my fat missis likes a pizza on a Monday night. So I gets there like and my phone beeped and I looked at it and this fella had emailed me to say that my long-long Nigerian uncle had died, leaving me $6,0000,0000 which was nice. All I had to do was provide my bank details so they can do the transfer.”
Rev Father August Goodluck, a diplomat by profession, died earlier this month in a car crash. Mr Jones was unaware that he was related to such a wealthy uncle.
“To be honest, I’d never heard of him but I’m happy to take the money. As it happens, I could have done with it before I checked out at Asda because the missies wanted some Coke to go with her pizza and I didn’t have enough.”
Mr Jones is still waiting for his inherited money.
