Greetings dear,
I am Mrs. Rosaline Jonas from Togo, My late husband deposited U$1.2 Million dollars in a Bank here & being diagnosed with esophageal cancer and knowing my conditions now; I want to donate this fund to you so that you will utilize it for charity purposes on orphanages, disables, widows and also propagating Gods word since I have no child that will inherit it after the death of my only child eight years ago. Assure me that you will handle it well and reply me at jrosalinex88@post.com for more info. Thanks & remain blessed.

Rosaline Jonas

That's very nice of her. Why not agree to help but keep all the money yourself? ;-)

Nick.

It is an old scam, any attempt to do what you suggest results in demands for money to pay fees or bribes required for the donor to release the money to me or you or anyone foolish or guilable enough to be drawn in. Many cases of individuals who ended up paying huge sums, which mounted up from the constant seemingly understandable requests until they were so far in withdrawing not an option, but never a penny ever arrived.

I've received my request from her. Will be sending a reply which contains some good old fashioned Anglo Saxon words, phrases. :-)

Nick.

Yes we received the same message.  She must think we came off the last banana boat.

Pity these sort of people spoil a nice friendly forum.

Rosaline I know you will read this - I know where you live and if you don't send me 75% of what you steal I will send the bogey man to sort you out.

Yes I got this message earlier today. Site admin should block her messages and remove the registration, which was made a couple of days ago!

Be a bit patient please as Ross is Admin and he's away without internet connections. It'll go once he returns. This is the first we've had on here for many a month and normally they're gone in an hour or so.

Alan, I am sorry to see you have missed out. However, I am sure you would have put the money to excellent use in the world of Oval Circuit.


For this reason, I am offering you a second chance. By great coincidence, I am actually the Lord Mayor of Birmingham and I left my trousers on the train to Euston. If you would be good enough to send me £50 then I will reward you by selling you Birmingham at a very good price. Except Edgebaston.

I cannot wait for your kind and warm-hearted generosity to spill all over my bank account. By servicing me, you will live to be 100. Possibly.

Just a quick note to say all is well, I have received an up front payment of £20,000 from Rosaline I have sent her all my bank details and £300 so that she knows I'm a genuine person, she seems really nice. I think Ross is staying with her for a few days. I'm going to buy a new motorhome with the money and a new flying pig.

I received this message a few days ago and have tried to pass it on to Ross but heard nothing so far. The cheeky devil claims to be a member.
I do recall this form of message several years ago but very sadly believe that, to make them worthwhile, some people still respond to them for whatever reason.
I doubt Ross can do anything about them but he could ban her (or him) as a member I suppose.
Alan
