They would not do this kind of thing if they did not have some degree of success. Some one falls for this. That amazes me. Never underestimate the stupidity of Americans.

You guys crack me up. I must admit, I did think my luck was in for a micro second. I love the fact that he/she felt the need to annotate YAHOO.COM. I thought you only did that if you are talking over the phone or a radio to someone. What possible reason is there to do that when typing? The mind boggles.

Anyhow, first cup of coffee or not, they’ll have to get up earlier in the morning to catch me out.

Greg – I wouldn’t get out of bed for 15%. It would have to be a 60 / 40 split in my favour. She wants me to act as a mentor whilst she’s at university. That would mean I’d have to get the textbooks out and check all her work for the next three years as well as take her shopping at the weekends. Come to think of it, 60% doesn’t even sound enough if I’ve got to take her shopping!!!

Come on, Andy, you can level with us. This sounds like the beginning of some sort of Lumberjock soap opera blog you’re setting up. You’re just getting us prepared right? When will the soap opera blog start because I for one want to be a regular reader. ;-| What’s the name of the blog going to be so we can be watching for it? I don’t want to miss the first episode so will you make another announcement before it starts?

I just received this one in my email: These sons of bitches must be targeting lumberjocks

I Am Writing This Message From Hospital,

This is Mrs Kate Millen Abraham writing you from my Hospital bed, Therefore this message is very urgent. I have a donation to make which I will need your assistance to carry it out for me, I will be 62 years old this coming October, I’m a widow and a servant of the Lord for the past 38 years in Ivory Coast.

I inherited sum of ( $4.4 Million ) Four Million Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars from my late husband Mr. Millen Abraham, I want to give it out to Orphanages homes and Charity Organizations as a vow which I made before the Lord.

I have a serious lung and breast cancer and will be going for my third surgical operation next two weeks, though the doctor had already confirmed that I will only last for some months but I am happy and glad that the Lord has kept me safe and guided me to accomplished my desires here on earth, I will be happy to meet Him where He wants me to be.

I want you to contact my house helper, I have given him the documents of the funds and have directed him to a lawyer that will assist you to change the documents of the fund to your name to enable the Bank transfer the fund to you.

Frederic Rousseau Kouassi.
Address: Avenue 16, Wade Ave,
Abidjan 16, Cote d’Ivoire.
Email: fredric.r.kouassi@gmail.com

He will give you the documents and will direct you to the lawyer that I have appointed to him to assist you.

This is the favor i need from you when you received the money under your control.

(1) Give 10% of the money to Frederic Rousseau Kouassi as he has been there for me throughout my illness and I have promised to support him, therefore you will take him as my or your child.

(2) Give 60% of the money to Charity organizations, Orphanage homes and Churches e.t.c, on my name so that my soul may rest in peace.

(3) The remaining 30% should be for you and others that you may love to assist. If i did not hear from you in few days to come then i will be looking for someone else.
May God bless you and use you to accomplish my wish.

Remain Blessed.

Mrs Kate Millen Abraham.
