MY DESK: MADISON -

I spend a fair amount of time online these days, whether it's research or work-related or last night, for example, I was fixated on a sports trivia web site and stayed up way too late in the process.

However, I have never heard of the "yahoo tourist search" that apparently has led Ms. Hellen Mbogo to me. It's non-existent on line with the exception of numerous scam/spam email warnings regarding emails strangely similar to mine.

Here I was thinking I was special, that Ms. Mbogo had searched long and far to find "some one whom i will call mine," and yet, it's a chain email. She may "really like to have a good relationship with (me)," but I'm going to pass and I'd recommend you do as well if you get one of these.

Just hit delete.

Have a great weekend.

Adam

Subject: Please My Dear I Really Need Your Help!

Dearest.

I got your email address from the yahoo tourist search while looking for some one whom i will call mine,I will really like to have a good relationship with you, and i have a special reason why i decided to contact you. I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here ,I am MissHellen Mbogo Edwards 24years old girl from Liberia the only daughter of Late prince,Mbogo Edwards the deputy minister of national security under the leadership of president Charles Taylor who is now in exile after many innocent soul were killed,

After the burial of my father, my stepmother and uncle conspired and sold my father’s property which the shared the money among themselves and live nothing for me. One faithful morning, I opened my father's briefcase and found out the documents which he have deposited huge amount of money in one bank in Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin. I traveled to Burkina Faso to withdraw the money for a better life so that I can take care of myself and start a new life, on my arrival in Burkina Faso since is a nearby country , the Bank Director whom I met in person told me that my father's instruction to the bank that the money would only be release to me when I am married or present trustee foreigner who will help me and invest the money overseas. I am in search of a honest and reliable person who will help me and stand as my foreign trustee so that I will present him to the Bank for transfer of the money to his bank account overseas. I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray my trust.

You may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, To me I will say that my spirit and mind convinced me that you may be the true person to help me, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate to your country because my stepmother have threaten many times to assassinate me due to her wickedness and jealousy’s because she has no issue for my father since she was married after the accident that killed my mother years back, The amount is( $8.5 Million U S D )Eight Million Five hundred thousand United State Dollars, and I have confirmed from the bank in Burkina Faso on my arrival. You will also help me to place the money in a more profitable business venture in your Country. However, you will help by recommending a nice University in your country so that I can complete my studies. As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will inform the bank that am ready to present the foreign trustee who will receive the fund on my behalf.
I am a Christian and I believe in God. Please do keep this only to your self for now until the bank will transfer the fund. I beg you not to disclose it till I come over because I am afraid of my stepmother who has threatened to kill me and have the money alone ,I thank God Today that am out from my country(Liberia) but now In (Burkina Faso) where my father deposited these money with my name as the next of Kin. Thanks for your patient and understanding hope to hear from you .God Bless. Please reply me with this Email___  (hellen.mbogo@yahoo.com)

Yours Sincerely,

MissHellen Mbogo.
