And yes the warning apparently is needed because there are enough of you falling for this that these folk think it is worth the effort to keep filling my inbox with these messages. And I don’t know where they got the idea I needed penis enlargement pills or viagra, but I think someone out there needs to zip it…
I got this email today, seems perfectly legit. I mean it is from a semi literate US Ambassador, so there is a good chance he’s a friend of DoubleYa’s. I’ve already sent my contact information and have my banking information at the ready awaiting the ambassador’s call. Seems like a can’t miss proposition, and it also benefits charities… like babies and kittens and stuff. Come on, who doesn’t like kittens? So who’s with me?
Embassy Of The United States Of America Cotonou Benin
Rue Caporal Bernard Anani
01BP 2012 Cotonou Benin
This is James Knight , the USA Ambassador in Benin Republic. I am writing to bring to your notice about the death of Muammar Gaddafi of Libya who was killed in his home country Libya on the 20th day of October 2011, you may be aware of this. Muammar Gaddafi was a very close friend of mine that he often visited me here in Benin when he was alive. Gaddafi was the world richest President as recorded He deposited the sum of US$39.3M in one of the Finance firms here in Benin for safe keep. His family does not know about this except me because of our close relationship irrespective of his atrocities. Therefore because of my position as the Ambassador of my country USA here in Benin, I cannot go for a claim. I am therefore writing to present you as the claimant to the fund at the Finance firm, for charity purpose to the less privileged in your country and some other countries around you. Some portion of the Fund US$39.3m will go to you for a job well done as you receive it , while some portion of it will be distributed to the less privileged in your country and beyond by you which is my main aim of contacting you, I will direct you when it is time.
