I got this e-mail today. It is very funny, because if she got my address from this forum, as she says, does she REALLY think I'm going to fall for it?



From Miss Shantal Koneal.
Abidjan. Cote D'Ivoire,
 
Hello dear,

With profound respect and humble submission,I got your contact on http://forum.skeptic.za.org and I beg to state the following few lines for your kind consideration, I hope you will spare some of your valuable minutes to read the following appeal with sympathetic mind. I must confess that it is with great hopes, joy and enthusiasm that I write you this mail which I know and believe by faith that it must surely find you in good condition of health. My name is Miss Shantal Koneal , I am the only Daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs Joseph Koneal. My father was a highly reputable business magnet who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days.
It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on the 20th May 2007. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of mine who travelled with him at that time. But who knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6yrs old, and since then my father took me so special.
 
Before the death of my father on May 2007, he called me and informed me that he has the sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$10,500,000.00) he deposited in a private Bank here in Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire.. He told me that he deposited the money in my name, and also gave me all the necessary but legal documents regarding to this deposit with the Bank

I am just 22 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. Now I want an honest partner overseas who I can transfer this money with his assistance and after the transaction I will come and reside permanently in your country till such a time that it will be convinient for me to return back home if I so desire. 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 my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I also want to invest the fund under your care because I am ignorant of business world.
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 me from your heart?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the fund has being transfeered to your account and i come over to meet you ?
 
Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Immedaitely I confirm your willingness, I will send to you my Picture and also inform you more details involved in this matter.
 
Kind Regards,
Miss Shantal Koneal.

It must be great to be in that position - "oh, I have so much money and don't know what to do with it. After living with my father for 22 years I didn't realise he had all this money and couldn't believe it when he phoned me (Luckily just before he died). He told me that all the legal documentation for the bank account was under the pillow in the spare bedroom (Can you believe that - right next door to my room). Please can I give you my money and you can look after me?"

It does sound very realistic doesn't it?  Grin

Maybe it's this member that recently joined? http://forum.skeptic.za.org/index.php?action=profile;u=162
Indeed, not very smart to try an old email scam like this on a skeptical forum Grin
