I got the following through PM..

Dear one,

Greeting,

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship

with you.

I am Christoper Amata the only Son of late Mr and Mrs Williams Amata 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 *** fearing foreign

partner in a country of my choice who will assist me r

etrieve 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 19 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

christoper_amata@yahoo.com

Anticipating to hear from you soon.

Thanks and *** Bless.

Best regards.

Christoper Amata

i reckon we should wind him up, and even try and scam some money out of him..

did anyone see that documentry thing on last week, where this reporter went along with the scam and started to wind him,, they met the scammer at some national park and said the money was buried, they had drawn up a cartoon style X marks the spot map and off they went searching for it,, eventually the scammer gave up..

Awww c'mon. There in Africa, as if there going to come all the way to the Uk just cos you strung them along...

And even if they did, what are the chances of them landing on your doorstep???

I think the key thing is not to give any personal/truthful information away...

And if you read my post in GOLD, you'll see how im getting around the problem..
