Miss Young, I just wanted to provide my last two days of these emails in a
more timeline oriented format. Its unbelievable that people actually fall
for this kind of obvious scamming. Thanks for all you do!!!! And I give you
permission to post on your site if you feel the need to show that not
everyone is a sucker;) I just ask that you omit my email address. Keep up the spectacular work!!!!!!

residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar as a result of the civil war

Sounds like a sad Story girl. Unfortunately I am broke as a joke so If your
looking for help, or you are per chance some sweaty guy sitting on the other
end of this computer trying to pry american dollars from my ever tightening
fist, then you should probably move on to the next sucker. If not I'd be
happy to chat with you via email as I can always use another friend. Good
Luck Glory and if that really is a picture of you congratulations your
beautiful but loose the hat. If its not and your that sweaty man in the
afore mentioned reference, you should be ashamed of your self. Internet
scamming is a crime, And you will be reported. Have a nice Joyful and
So at this point I do a search for Sullivan Keita and Koneh and associates,
lo and behold a scammer site pops up so I do some reading and find that his
scam is all to familiar to a bunch of people who got taken. Not that I
wasn't already ahead of Glory in the outcome on this one. I wrote her back:
You people are so pathetic, I guess you think that every American is a big
fat sucker but guess what, using the internet anyone can find out that your
claims are a huge farce. Hey sweaty guy are you really this stupid or have
you been trying exceptionally hard lately? Follow the provided link if you'd
like to polish up on your previous claims and names.
p.s. your ability to swindle pales in comparison to my three year old trying
to squeeze an extra cookie from me at snack time. Oh and in closing you had
better hide, I think I hear the rebels coming for you!!!!!!!
Thanks for all the good times!
Not your Shuga Daddy.
Thinking that was that I kinda for got about it untill....you guessed it

Subject: my love here is my full life story please i need your help
How are you today?
with fine in good health.
Mine here is very hot at the moment and like you know i am living in the
refugee camp here in Dakar . In this camp we are only allowed to go out only
on mondays and fridays of the weeks.Its just like one staying in the prison
and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.
I don't have any relatives now whom i can go to as all my relatives ran away
in the middle of the war. The only person i have now is Rev.MATHEW UKPONU
who is the pastor of the (Living Spring Christian Church) here in the camp,
he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him
rather i live in the females's hostel because the camp have two hostels one
for men the other for women.
The Pastors Tel number is (+221-77-24-99-304) if you call, please tell him
that you want to speak with me so that he will send for me in the hostel.
call 3pm gmt today . please as a refugee here i don't have any right or
privilledge to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the
law of this country.I want to go back to my studies because i only attended
my first year before the traggic incident that lead to the death of my
parents took place.
Please listen to this,i have my late father's statement of account and death
certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was
alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank in London which he
used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $9.7M (Nine
Million Seven Hundred Thousand Dollars). So i will like you to help me
transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for
me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with
I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows
about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me. So in the light
of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone
for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know
about it. Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i
deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of
vision , truth and hardworking. My favourite language is also
english..Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said i have alot to
tell you. Call around 3pm gmt time.
i have a lot to tell you.
YOUR BELOVED ONE.
(please call me i want to speak with you honey
||So now laughing my ass off I reply to my darling Glory:
I guess you didn't read the email where I called your punk ass out for being
an internet scammer. This story that you keep Vomiting out to people and
expect them to eat it without regard for common sense is comical at best. I
have already reported your intent to defraud. After a few days you will find
that your email address will no longer work either. As far as your life
story, I've read it many times on Miss Youngs website where your workforce
of fraudulent employees attempt to steal money by using greed and sympathy
as a catalyst. I'm sure your local government will be very interested in the
illegal activity that you are involved in. Oh and by the way your even lying
about the weather in Dakar, its not hot, its only 72 degrees, again I use
the internet to prove your lies!!!! Bwahahahaha ! Hey visit
http://419.bittenus.com/stories.htm your picture is the fourth one
down.....I didn't know your name was also Maureen Wilson. You guys might be
fooling some people but Im most definitely not in that percentile. Buh Bye!
So I guess it has comr to an end for Miss Glory for you, but I'll keep you
updated if she decides that shes still smarter than a fifth grader. Hope you
all enjoyed my little story.
||Eric never heard from her again.
