#Divinehell - Fraud

Tony smiled as notifications of more payments into his bank account came in, all from OAPs paying a monthly fee for identity theft protection. It made him giddy, it was amazing how gullible people could be. All his brochures and sales pitches were a lie, he did nothing for them, in fact if he wasn't so lazy he would be doing a bit of identity theft himself.

Walking though the park he saw an easy target, an old man feeding some pigeons. Plopping down on the seat, the old man took no notice of him and carried on throwing bread crumbs.

“Fine day today, isn't it?”

“Very much so...” said the man, turning towards him, his face changing into a spitting image of Tony's.

Tony screamed and ran, but not fast enough, the pigeons descended on him. Pecking and tearing at him until there was very little left.


  1. Beautiful ending. Despite knowing that things had to end bad for Tony, the manner of his demise still managed to surprise.

  2. For great justice! I guess Tony didn't realize that stuff catches up to you sooner or later.

    OAP? Old-Ass Person?

  3. Evil pigeons! Yes!

    For some reason the detail of there being "almost" nothing left really stood out to me, and made his fate seem almost crueler.

    Yeah, it isn't hard to wish or imagine horrible retribution on the fraudulent.

  4. Luckily I like pigeons and know they're gentle birds, otherwise I'd have nightmares.

    When Tony saw the old man I guessed he'd be Tony's demise, but the face changing caught me off guard.
