Dearest One,
Good thing to write you this mail. I have a proposal for you this however is notmandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will, Your profile pushed me to send you this mail. I am Usman Kenzo 20years old and the Son of my late parents Mr.and Mrs.Kenzo. My father was a highly reputable business magnet-(a cocoa merchant) who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days,

My mother died when I was just 6 years young boy and my junio sister mariam was 4 years old, since then our father took us so special. Before his death he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of Eighteen Million U.S Dollars ($18,000,000.00) left in one of the leading bank hear Abidjan CoteD’Iviore and the money was placed in a fixed deposit account. He further told me that he deposited the money in my name,

Dare I am just 20 years old boy and a university undergraduate and really don’t know what to do now. This is because i have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory Coast, The death of our parents actually brought sorrow to our life. Dear I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards, Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.

Now permit me to ask these few questions

1. Can you honestly help us out as your brother and sister?
2. Can we completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will  be good for you after the money is in your bank account?

Please, Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible for more explanation through my private mail box.(

Thank you so much and may God bless you.

Yours sincerely One,
Usman Kenzo.

  1. TechPaul,

    I like the part, “Can we completely trust you?”…

    • Rick,
      Yes I agree. Sadly, the simple trick of reversing the trust issue often works on the naive and trusting.

  2. Bait them!

    Say something like “YES BUT I WANT 100%” in reply. They’ll never spam you again!

    • Adrian,
      I am all for any idea that would end spam. (And I am pretty liberal with the use of the word “any”, there…)

      While I am not interested in playing the game of scam baiting.. those who are (or who are simply curious inre the idea) should visit
