I have received the following pm from a new member. I'm posting it so that nobody gets fooled by it. I have sent a message to SC.

Dearest One,

I have to explain myself to you first. I am Miss Linda Anthony, the only Daugther of Late Dr Kadiri Anthony, who was murdered in Bouake the commacial city of Cote D' Ivoire during the political crisis that erupted Cote D'Ivoire by the rebels. Before his death he showed me some documents which he used in depositing the sum of $8,500,000.000 Million US Dollars in a security company in Europe. I was able to made away with these documents when the rebels invaded our house and killed all the family members and burnt every where to ashes.

Right now I am in a church in Abidjan where I am taking refuge. I seek for your assistance to help me to retrive this box containing 8.5 million in the security companay in europe and transfer this money into your account so that you can assist me to come over to your country for us to invest the money in a good business.

Right now I am left with nothing, that is why I am soliciting for your assistance. I will give you %10 of the total money if you are willing to assist me to get this money out from the security companay in Europe. I will forward the informations of the security companay to you when I hear from you for you to contact them on my behalf.Please my dear you are advice to reply me through my private email address for more details and my picture. lindaanthonys@hotmail.com

Thanks and best regards.
Ms Linda Anthony.

Registered today, NO activity whatsoever, but doing PMs to defraud people.

Sounds like a violation of the TOS to me.

Oh, she's GOT to be kidding!? Does anyone actually bite on these scams?
10/11/2008 09:15:50 PM · #5
What makes these idiots think if we got the money we'd give the 90% back?

8.5 million.....WHAT 8.5 million?

I love the part where we would invest the money into a good business.

No kidding! It is inappropriate to PM people - she should post this in the "Business" forum.

Very sad & shocking news about Dr Kadiri Anthony - he was a close friend of my cousin's neighbor's babysitter's schoolteacher's pharmacist. I'm taking the rest of the day off as I am overcome with grief.

ETA: I actually got two of them.....same person.

Copied & pasted to SC.

Well, the account is now closed so I guess I'm left out also! I figured I had a better shot at getting rich that way than I do the lotto.
10/11/2008 10:10:42 PM · #16

Now we know where all the money is tied up, so that banks can't lend any now.
10/11/2008 10:30:52 PM · #21
Yeah I also feel special, I just got one! Now how do I contact them to get my money now that SC has killed their account?

Well, well. I'm sure we know someone on this site who has a habit of burning every where to ashes. Rebels, indeed. Just a thinly veiled attempt to take away the attention from the true villains: village-burners.
