I want to invest in any lucrative business in your Country. I have a total amount of Nine Million United States Dollars (US$9,000,000) which i have mapped out for this investment. If you are willing to assist me in setting up this investment in any business in your country, on my behalf and take care of the investment till when i will come down to your country to meet you in 2 Months time, i will transfer the US$9,000,000.00 to your account and 15% of the total funds will be for you for accepting to assist me in this investment project. If this is okey by you, then reply me for more details. Best Regards, Mr Beniah Elemchuk Tel:+234-818-645-7822

Considering the username for the classifieds is 'gypsybitch', he called me sir

What is with the highlighted bit its not even proper english, its like a forigner is trying to speak english

It is very weird where they dont mention ENGLAND just YOUR COUNTRY

I dont know how people fall for these scams
To the world you could be one person,
But to one person you could be the world.

Sometimes the bad things in your life
open your eyes to the good things
you wasn't paying attention to before.

I don't feel there is any need to justify why we keep snakes.
I do feel there is sometimes a need to justify how we keep them.
