My Dear,

There is this huge amount of Seven million Five Hundred Thousands U.S dollars (7.500.000.00 which my late Father kept with a Fiduciary Fund Holder in Abidjan before his death Now, I have decided to invest this money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Africa for security

and political reasons.

I want you to assist me claim and retrieve this fund from the Fiduciary Fund Holders and transfer it into your personal account in your country for investment purposes on these areas: 1).Telecommunication 2). the transport industry 3). Five star hotel If you can be of any assistance to me I will be pleased to offer to you 20% of the total fund.

I await your soonest response here please at ellychid@yahoo.cn

Respectfully yours,

Ms. Ellen Scott

I received the identical message via the private message function here. I received a total of three messages (identical), and haven't seen any additional messages. The names used were "Honeybird" and "Ellachild". They have been suspended. If you see anything, please let us know.

That is an old lamer, there. The Internet Cafes in Nigeria are especially well known for these scams. Unfortunately, many are not as goofy as this one. There are some major league scammers out there.

My bank once emailed me, with a link to their site, to verify my password. WOW! It looked exactly like my bank's login site, but it wasn't.

Shortly after, my bank upgraded their security ... someone got rich on that one.
