Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Get my inheritance out of the Bank of Africa before it is confiscated


Recent activity

HippieChick2I need to make this a priority!!!

Mr Fred Juma who is the director in charge of Auditing and Accounting section of Bank of Africa Benin in West Africa,and also a special account officer of Mr. Omar Ali has been trying diligently to contact me!!! It seems that Mr. Omar Ali was a Seasoned Contractor with Benin Cement Company in Benin Republic., who unfortunately died in the plane crash of Union Transport Africaines Flight Boeing 727 in Cotonou, Benin Republic on December 25,2003.

Before his death on 25th December 2003, Mr. Omar Ali had a fixed deposit account with the bank and no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and Mr. Juma’s investigation proved that I am the only next of kin!!! He has diligently searched for next of kin and lo and behold, I am all that is left!!! (I wonder if he is related to me on my Mom’s side or my Dad’s side) Mr. Juma wants desperately to repatriate the money left behind by my long lost relative Mr. Omar Ali before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank.

This windfall is valued at US$6.3 million can be paid to me and then I can share my windfall with Mr. Juma. He suggests 70% to him and 30% to me which seemed a little lopsided, but then he has been doing all the paperwork and diligent searching for me, so I guess I shouldn’t begrudge him compensation for all his hard work. He has all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim made. All he requires is my honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. He guarantees that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect me from any breach of the law. I need to hurry up and email my information to him.

Man, I thought this was just going to be another ordinary Monday!!! 5 years ago
