Dear Ms. Young
In the past four weeks I have received numerous e-mails from someone calling himself Professor Soludo. I was very curious to say the least. I answered the e-mails with vague answers and the good Prof promptly sent another e-mail with promises of great wealth. I am an old man who has been a banker since I was 35 years old. I had thought I had seen it all.
About a month ago someone must have put my e-mail on an international succors list. I have received several e-mails from Africa, Hong Kong and the Philippine's. All more or less promise the same thing. Many many dollars for a relatively small fee for Credit Cards, Diplomatic Couriers etc etc.
I will start sending you all of the messages I received from the good professor. What it boils down to is that he wants me to send him $30,000.00 to have a diplomatic courier bring boxes filled with cash through customs in New York. RIGHT!!!!!
Here is the second e-mail by Soludo. I inadvertently deleted the
