----------------------------
From: ally555

Greetings,

Please allow me to intimate you with a business transaction that would benefit both of us. My name is Allison Claude, I am the director of the project and engineering division of SODECI (Société de distribution d'eau de Côte d'Ivoire). I will want you to assist me in the claim and transfer of Seven Million Euros.

This amount was realized from over-invoiced contract amount awarded by us in 2009 to expatriate companies. The Contract's Amount was deliberately overestimated to read more than the actual cost of the project thus leaving a surplus of Seven Million Euros. However, as a staff of SODECI I cannot claim this money without a foreign partner who will act as the contract beneficiary and as such, entitled to receive the funds as payment. This is why I am contacting you to allow this money to be transferred into your account and to be my custodian for the money.

If you are willing to assist me in this transaction please get back to me at: (allyyc@msn.com) so I can give you further details about this transaction. I am willing to give you 25% of the total amount after the transfer, the rest will be held and released to me when I get to your country. I look forward to hear from you.

Regards,

Allison.

I just got 1 from "clad1" with this message. Over to you for fun.

"Greetings,

I am sorry for the disturbance and sorry for contacting you through this medium. My name is Mr Allison Claude, Personal Assistant to Mr Desire Tagro the Interior Minister of Ivory Coast who was accused of embezzling government funds.

I managed to dislodge the sum of US$8.5 Million to a safe depository company in Spain. This money was part of the US$134 Million paid to Ivory Coast government by oil shipping firm Trafigura for out-of-court settlement after the 2006 dumping of waste in Abidjan, the capital city of Ivory Coast. You can read it in full through this news link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10366945

Right now the interior minister is under house arrest and all of us involved in the embezzlement are being monitored. All I am asking you is to help me secure this deposit from the depository company in Spain to your country for investment. If you are willing to assist me please get back to me at (allyy44@gmail.com) for more details and to discuss the modalities involved. Please be assured that everything is SAFE.

Thanks.

Allison. "

Both EUPROMO and Clad1 have been disabled and I`ll be seeing if any link can be made between the IPs to prevent future spam.

True love or scam? Laugh

Has anyone else got that? Its interesting that it is written in two languages, english and something that kinda resembles german. Do they actually check the users locations now, or does everyone get in also in "german"?

And BTW: any chance that this thread (or another one) gets stickied, so that we have a central spot to report those nice people who just want to love us?

Or a button on their profiles to report a user as a spammer? Or maybe a button on messages to report it as spam?

I had the message verbatim even though there is nothing in my profile or posts to indicate I'd have a shot at the non-English section.

It should be
"Iche gegangen a-kopf und behindert die benutzer"
Or somthing like
"Ich ging voran und behinderte Nutzer."
Laugh

But a button would be helpfull!

You are going about this the wrong way.

Here are a few ideas on how to properly handle these types of situations : http://oddorama.com/...t-419-reverse-scams/
