Subject: To You,
Attn: To You,

Good-day, I am sure health speaks well of you today?, It is my humble pleasure to contact you through this medium, I am Sam Nana, I was the legal adviser to late Engineer R. Gerald, a citizen of your country. He was a contractor worked with Government Constructions Companies Togo for many years.

He died by heart attack over six (6) years ago in this country, and he supplied Cements Products to the Government of Togo since over nine (9) years ago, and the Government of Togo announced to release his contract balance valued at US$25,500,000.00 (United State Dollars) through the Ministry of Work Togo.

Then last week a mandate was issued to me by the Ministry of Work Togo, to provide the relative of my late client before 14 working days, to apply and receive the contract balance, otherwise the Government will cancel his contract payment, hence he was dead and nobody comes for the claim of his contract balance.

Therefore after my several attempts to locate any relatives of my late client without any success, I decided to utilize this life time opportunity by contacting you, hence you bear the same last name with him, to assist me claim the contract balance, and me and you will shall share the contract fund 50/50. I will inform you more once I receive positive response from you, view this email:

May his soul rest in peace Amen.

Please, kindly contact me for more details. Email:

Thanks and Remain blessed. Hoping to receive your response soonest.

Best regards,
San Nana

and now i decide to use it for the help of the lesprivilegdeslikepoorwidows,ophans,disables and build result of my short stay on earth,since we couldnt produce any child to enherit the money as next of kin and our properties.Now i was touched in spirit to donate the money to you for the good work of God.

" Yep - get then all the time. At the bottom of any DS page there is a link that says "Report Abuse". Feel free to use it. The only way we can keep the site free of scam artist is to turn them in and get them banned...

" That is such a SCAM!!! But you know that by now. The scam people love to target senior citizens, or older people living alone (they think)

Well, you got some excellent advice, and handled it correctly. I never recieved any in my box, but I have been called fro the last several months, on my blocked, unlisted phone number.

What is so stupid, on their part, is that on my caller ID, it comes up DOM REPUBL CALL. I never answer, and they never leave a message. I did double check with the operater and she confirmed the calls were from the Dominican Republic, and to turn them in to the Texas Attorney General, which I did.

Not much they can do until they scam me tho, but they need the info in order to keep track of them.

She said scamers love senior citizens, especially if you have money and might be lonesome, or willing to help a stranger,.

I am to Onery and do not trust such things. But lots of folks do...especially if it looks like money might be made.

Take care
BJ "
