I got this email ok and it said this:

ATTN: Dear, Ayeka

Due to my careful search for an honest, reliable and
sincere business partner, I got your contact from the
internet and I ask if you can be trusted not to break
an agreement? Still, it took me time to make up my
mind to contact you and to offer you this proposal of
mine of which my whole life depends on.

Dear, my name is PAUL E .CAMARA the son of one
business man from Sierra Leone, late MR. TIMOTHY
CAMARA, I am 22 years old and presently residing in
DAKAR-SENEGAL in West Africa under political asylum.

My mother happens to be a nurse whom the late CAMARA
had an affair with during his life style as a play
boy, and the affair resulted to my birth, but it was
unfortunate that the late CAMARA did not marry my
mother legally and as a kind of settlement, for my
mother and I, my mother ANTOINETTE deposited the sum
of seven million five Hundred thousand USD cash ($ 7.5
million us dollars cash) for my life inheritance. My
mother stashed these sum of money and deposited it in
a Bank and my name appears as the next of kin.

After my father was killed by his body guard earlier
last two year 2002, and my mother died also earlier
last year just two months after my father's death, and
at the age of 22 years old, I am left with this huge
sum of money, and I need a partner who will help me
transfer this money to his account for immediate
investment as I have made up my mind to invest in your
country.

Your compensation for your immediate assistance is 5%
of the total money as soon as it arrives your country
while 2% will be for any local and international
expences that will occure during the transfer.


I will like truth and honesty to be our watchword in
this business.
Yours sincerely,
Paul Etienne Camara.

Please you can contact me with this email address,
paul630@myway.com. Or you can call me with this
telephone number 00221 57 333 87.

I sure hope its okay to post this. It looks more like spam but just in case.

:flowers: I just checked and I also got one of those emails at my yahoo address. It was exactly the same as yours, CGM3, and the subject was "CAN YOU KEEP AN AGREEMENT?"
I just marked it as spam and deleted it. :thumbsup:

It's weird though, I don't think it was from here. My email is private, and has been that way for awhile (although they could've got my address before I made it private :thumbsup: ), and there is nothing in my profile to give anything away.

Oh well, as long as there are spammers, they'll figure out a way to piss everyone off! :flowers:

Im going to report them into the FBI. I asked a few people who are really good at spam at thatcomputer guys forum and they said it was a bad case! So I might contact the FBI on them. It was totally spam with no remove at the bottom.

CGM3 I think that I read once, that you should not click on the link to have yourself removed from a (spam) or any unwanted e-mail. That only lets them know that it is an active address. Which gives them the upper hand. When in doubt delete. Do not even open them.

Yeah ive known that one! Figured out the hard way with my other email address!

I just did this:
I opened email

Never even read the whole thing.
Yes If you email them it gives them a yes that they hit a target!
They wont get me!
