I had this offer in my mail this morning. If any of you want it you can have it.

I already have way too much money to spend and don't really want it, just remember it would be helping a feller out that needs a good God fearing foreignor as a podnuh.


Dear one,

Greeting, Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you.

I am Michael Yobotu the only Son of late Mr and Mrs Williams Yobotu from the republic of sierra loene. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote D'Ivoire before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal.

When my mother died on the 21st October 1984, my father took me so
special because I am motherless. Before the death of my father on 27th
June 2002 in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me
on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of $9.500.000 left in a security company here in Cote d'ivoire, that he used my name as his only Son for the next of kin in deposit of the consignment. Further more he also explained to me that it was because of this wealth and some huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him from the deal they had that he was been poisoned.

He then advised that I should seek for a God fearing foreign
partner in a country of my choice who will assist me retrieve this consignment and transfer this money and use it for investment purpose, then I would want you to provide your personal contacts including your phone/fax number for easier communication.

I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways.
1) I want you to help me retrieve this money from the
security company here and transfer it to your account for onward
investment in your country.
2) You are going to be the manager of this fund and
also my personal guardian until I finished my studies
as I'm just 21 years old..
3) You are going to procure admission for me to
continue my studies in one of the known university in
your country.
4) Moreover, I am willing to offer you 15% of the sum as compensation
for effort input after the successful retrieve of this consignment from
the security company here. And I am willing to proceed with you as soon
as I have your response.
Please try to contact me through my personal

email contact

Anticipating to hear from you soon.

Thanks and God Bless.

Yours sincerely.

Michael Yobotu.

Every time I see that bass ackwards way of talking it just makes me cringe because I know it's another one of those wonderful offers. Gag.

'May father took me so special because I am motherless.'

What we got here is different name, same sh11tt. I get these all the time. I'm glad I don't live close to anyone that would fall for this junk. If I did, I'd fear for my life, and the ones I love........gfp

Hey Burrhead, thought about exchanging with you some of the offerings I got this morning in my junk mail but it's too late..all was deleted.

Although, one of them was from a farm..

Burrhead don't be so unfriendly. Go ahead and send the guy you bank account numbers to help him out. I am positive that if you do this your balance will change.
Do you think that anyone ever responds to this kind of ad?

according to the news, somebody already has. a bunch of rich investors have dumped about $200 million into some guy who was supposedly trying to smuggle money outa somewhere. nice to know that money doesn't buy smarts, they're still dumber than us. :)

Lotsa that going around lately. Must snag a few suckers now and then 'cause they don't stop trying.
Thanks, but I'll pass on it. Don't wanna be greedy ya know.

Like you, I have money absolutely stacking up around here, and I just don't need any more opportunies to get rich. I'll pass, and let someone who has room in his wallet do it.

WhooHooo!! Thanks Burr Head, I'm gonna get in touch with this fine upstanding young man. Right now I'm a bit cash strapped since I bought that bridge in Brooklyn, New Yawk. But once I get my toll booths set up, and get my hands on my share of the this kindly foreigner's money, I'll be on easy street!!
