I got one and did NOT participate in the Asian challenge.
I'm curious, did anyone e-mail her back and ask her what she wants?


Yes, poor thing, she wants our help to get her assets back from her evil in-laws. She will pay 20% for our help.

At last, I've got one :) The name has changed to joymm1.
01/13/2009 12:23:10 PM · #56
reported it / (this is my second .. )
nut cases are going to keep the SC busy for a while ..

possible fix is to not let PM's available for 30days(or whatever) past registration ..

I just got my second e-mail...I didn't participate in the Asia challenge. Maybe they're pulling names from "browse" under the Photos menu?
01/13/2009 12:44:30 PM · #58
yup she is back. just got 2 of them from her joymm1 via DPC. Someone from DPC needs to muscle up and tell this chick to knock it off! ...
01/13/2009 12:47:18 PM · #59

01/13/2009 01:02:51 PM · #60

I got an e-mail from her too, but not via the DPC PM system... it came from this e-mail address: patriciadaku01@yahoo.co.uk From Joy Daku Subject was: Greetings! E-Mail contained the following:

Hello my dear,
I know this mail will come to you as a surprise since we have not had previous correspondence, please bear with me. I will really like to have a good relationship with you, and I have a special reason why I decided to contact you. I am Madam. Joy Daku from Sierra-Leone now in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire.

I lost my husband when he went to Bouake (Northern part of Cote d'Ivoire)to negotiate for the establishment of cocoa processing factory by the rebels who wanted to take over the Government. Before his death in hospital, he briefly gave me information about the fund (US$10.5 Millions) he deposited with a bank here.

since the death of my husband, his brothers have been seriously chasing me around with constant treats, trying to suppress me so that they might have the documents of his landed properties and confiscate them.

They have successfully collected all his properties, yet they never stopped there, they told me to surrender all bank accounts of my late husband,which I did, but I never disclose to them of this deposit. Because my husband made the deposit in suspense fixed account with a clause attached to it for onward transfer into a foreign account.

Now that the situation is becoming uncontrollable because of pressure on me from the family, which I will no longer like to take more risk staying here with my only son who is just Seven year old, I am now soliciting for your help to stand as my foreign business partner to receive the fund into your account. You will help me to invest the money into real estate once I come over there with my son.

If you agree to work with me, I will give you 15% as your commission and also 5% for any expenses you might incur, all making 20% which you will deduct from the total money once transferred into your account.

I am waiting for your reply so that I will give you more details about this transfer. Call me on +22507143552,
Have a nice day,
Madam. Joy Daku


Yes, I posted the phone number... yes, it is on the internet... I figure she wants everyone to have it anyway, why not "help" :)

ETA: Note that his brothers have been chasing her around trying to give her "treats"!!! If this is the case, I am not sure why she needs my help...

Aaargh . . I've just joined the exclusive club of random recipients . .

The emails still appear to be coming from DPC : (
01/13/2009 02:13:48 PM · #64
I'm loved :D But how can I respond to the dear woman when her acct's been cancelled? *sob*
01/13/2009 02:16:49 PM · #65
I got one very similar to that a couple of months ago. On mine, the person actually did have one of the free memberships (they had just joined within a couple of days before I got the email). I just sent it to site council and they removed that person's account right away.

Man. The lengths crooks will go to lie and deceive people!

I just received my 2nd email from her... :S maybe I should email her with a virus attachment :P

01/13/2009 02:34:22 PM · #70
Is there any reason why we can't have fun with this? Would it be bad if we all bombarded her back with our own fake e-mails? Or perhaps have some sort of speed challenge; self portraits showing the expression on your face when you've found out that A) You actually helped this person get her treats or whatever it is she wants, or B)You actually found out you got scammed and you now want to go join up with her evil family members?
Just a thought.
