Proper Rich

How’s this for a ‘rags to riches’ story? The UK Herald reports that two homeless brothers have been living in a cave on the outskirts of Budapest, occasionally visited by some charity workers, and have now found out they are to inherit a US$7 billion family fortune.

“If this all works out it will certainly make up for the life we have had until now — all we really had was each other — no women would look at us living in a cave,”

Apparently a lawyer had contacted the charity and asked them to find these brothers as they were to inherit a lot of money.

Come to think of it, I have about 20 e-mails in my junk folder that mention long lost relatives trying to off-load their fortunes and wealthy South African business men looking for someone to take all their money for no apparent reason. Maybe I should start replying to a few of these.
