It Finally Happened To Me....
I received one of those scam e-mails asking to help transfer money over here.
I was really feeling left out until I got this:
FROM: HELEN KOLONGA
LOT 125 AV. DES
QUAIS RUE 7 08 BP 441
ABIDJAN-COTE D' IVOIRE.
I DO APOLOGIZE FOR APPROACHING YOU IN SUCH A MANNER,BUT CIRCUMSTANCES FORCED ME TO CONTACT YOU. I WAS FORMERLY A MEDICAL STUDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ABIDJAN, COTE D IVOIRE TILL MY PARENTS AND MY ONLY BROTHER WHERE KILLED BY THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT BECAUSE MY FATHER WAS AN OPPOSITION LEADER TO THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT.
BEFORE THE DEATH OF MY FATHER, HE HAS $4.5 M USD (FOUR MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.) IN A DOMICILIARY ACCOUNT WITH A BANK IN CTE D'IVOIRE WHICH I AM THE NEXT OF KIN.
I HUMBLY NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
1) TO HELP GET THIS MONEY TRANSFERRED TO YOU.
2) TO SERVE AS THE GUARDIAN
3) TO MAKE AN ARRANGEMENT FOR ME TO COME OVER AFTER THIS MONEY IS TRANSFERRED.
4) TO LOOK FOR A GOOD VENTURE WHERE THE MONEY WILL BE INVESTED.
I AM READY TO COMPENSATE YOU FOR YOUR EFFORT IN ASSISTING ME.
Gosh, where do I sign up?
