By you fucking idiot - 19/12/2013 17:20 - United States - Union

Today, I found out the money my husband's been funneling from our bank account wasn't for drugs or gifts for another girl like I thought. It was for a guy he stupidly believed was a foreign diplomat, who supposedly needed to bribe officials in order to send us several million dollars. FML

It's okay, OP. You'll soon have that money back, plus millions. You just have to wait for the guy to be able to leave the refugee camp, and you're all set.

Foreign diplomat? Wow, your husband must really be a fool. Now if you excuse me, a Nigerian prince is asking me if I can lend him a couple of thousands.

I never did get it why people fall for this shit. I mean, ok you're gullible, but if the guy really had all the wealth, why the hell would he want to share it?? Mainly talking about the Nigerian prince (which they don't even have royalty) scam which actually got a guy in the Navy imprisoned for embezzling and sending over $250,000! Fuck's sake...

Shouldve left it at drugs...

Nigeria has many small "kingdoms" inside of it which are ruled over by "royalty". Technically everyone in Nigeria is somehow related to "royalty".

People still fall for that kind of stuff? That's pretty fucking sad, full OP.

You know one of these days a prince from Africa will try to donate millions of dollars but that message will be marked as spam.

Yeah it happens. My aunt sAw an ad for a job and applied for it thinking it was real. The people sent her an email and fake application. They told her she had to send them $2000 so they could buy the material she'd need for the job and then send it to her but they would send her a check and she'd need to cash it and then send them the money. So she did just that. She then received a phone call from the back saying the check had no funds in it or something like that. So now she's in debt with the bank. It sucks :/

Maybe it's a good thing the million dollar thing was fake. He might have spent it all on drugs, or even worse, gifts for another girl.

I like the way you think.

When's the money coming?

as soon as you send me $200 for using FML. Remember to do it in unmarked, non sequential bills. No paper trail.

Foreign diplomat? Wow, your husband must really be a fool. Now if you excuse me, a Nigerian prince is asking me if I can lend him a couple of thousands.

He said something about how there's a diamond mine with my name on it that just needs to clear customs, for an extra $5Gs of course....

track that person. and file a complain... i hope u will het ur money back .. sorry OP

It's easy, just hack the mainframe!

What the fuck are you saying?

...Your husband does not have many brain cells.

I haven't decided yet which scenario is worse..

I think we're all trying to figure it out.

bet a cheating husband doesn't sound too bad now huh? ;)

Correct. Divorce over one stupid mistake is the only option. I'm glad we have such clever 17-year old kids who know so much about mature relationships giving advice here.

Forget violence is always the answer, here on FML the only correct response to a problem is to sue or dump.

That's so accurate I can't even handle it

I see no mistake.

#38: That's because you're wearing sunglasses inside, bro.

Yea I had eye surgery so had wear eye protection from light.

Actually, the husband made an important financial decision without the OP, and it was presumably their joint bank account. This goes beyond stupidity and I do think divorce would be a suitable way of dealing with this. Clearly he has no concept of being in an equal partner relationship.

Deloria - How long have you been married? If the answer is "never", then you have no basis nor right to give such stupid advice. Spouses make financial decisions alone all the time. We don't buy houses without our spouse's consent. What the husband did was stupid, but this isn't a "large" decision.

10- You see no mistake because....... You one what, forget it. You're too busy being dumb to waste my breath explaining this.

It really just depends on if wasting large amounts of house funds is a habit of his. If this was a one time stupid mistake then divorce isn't necessarily the answer. But if he is habitually wasteful with their money to the point that it affects their financial stability... something like this could be the final straw. Money is one of the leading causes of divorce for a reason.

Your choice: cheating husband or one who has no common sense? No common sense it is!
