Here is yet another attempt....wow!  LOL

Reply Back through my private email below From Ruth Ndri United Nations High Commission For Refugees Camp . Abidjan Cote D' Ivoire             Dear One,
Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you, After reading your profile, I decided to confide in you this simple and sincere business.  I am Ruth Ndri the only surviving daughter of late Mr Gabriel Ndri who was killed by the Government  of Laurent Gbagbo. My late father was accused of having hand in sponsorship of the troup that tried to overthrow his government,He was arrested and beaten to a comma and was later thrown into prison where he was secretly murdered . My late mother was also mudered by the then government alongside my only sister leaving me, I survived this because I was in school outside my country Cote D'Ivoire.
But during my one of my visits to the prison where he was incacerated before his death , he disclosed to me about the deposit of Five Million Five Hundred United States Dollars ($5.5M) he made with one of the banks here in Cote D' Ivoire, he told me where to find all the documents covering all the transactions he made and the documents covering the deposit,he also told me that the deposit was made with my name as the next of kin and the beneficiarry to the fund. I wish to request for your assistance in investing this money in lucrative venture under your directives and guidiance in your country. I want you to assist me for the transfer of this sum of Five million, five hundred thousand United State Dollars (USD5.500,000) to your account in your country hence I will give you the contact of the bank where the money is, so that you can contact them immediately and discuss with them since I do not know much about financial issues. I will gladly give you some resonable percentage from the total sum for your assistance while I pray that you do not betray me at last. Please it is important you contact me immediately for more clearification on the next step for smooth conclusion.
Awaiting your immediate response and God bless you.
Yours Sincerely, Miss Ruth Ndri Email: (r_ndri001@yahoo.co.uk Email: (r_ndri002@yahoo.co.uk

Here you go!  It looks legit...but don't believe it!

Dear Lo,

My name is Michael S. Smith and a Playwright Artist by profession, I am 40 years old Christian, single and based in Lagos, Nigeria but have close to Sixty works [film Storylines and scripts] to my credit with best intention to get them produce in USA. Warner Bros., Paramount Communications, Twentieth Century Fox, Taurus Film Company, and Odyssey Distributors, Inc were the Production Companies that want to sign me in for production contracts and thatís why I employed the service of a famous Matawan based Literary Agent that represent my work from year 2000 till date.

I saw and read through your profile via net at ------ and found it interested then decide to contact and establish a serious relationship with you and with the hope that you will not disappoint me or to turn my request for friendship upside down. I believe that I donít have to start telling you juicy story in order to win your heart and love but I believe that when time comes you will know and understand me better due to the fact that when time comes, you will have access to my US based agent and you will be able to see and read some of my Sixty works that I have with her in her agency.

Kindly be informed that you donít have to start judging or condemning me because of Iím not an American Citizen or because Iím living at a far away distance to you or because of the immoral attitude of some among our citizens in your country due to the fact that human beings are not the same in behavior or character. Iím assuring you that when time comes you will know who I am, the type of person I am, what I can do and what I cannot do either right away from my country here in Nigeria or when I come to start dwelling with you in United States because I will open your eyes to various lucrative businesses that you can do and that will be profitable to you, and I will likewise reveal the mode and shady deals that some of our citizens used to do in order to dupe foreigners of their wealth so as to prevent you and your people from falling into their traps.

I will be very much glad if you could please put this into consideration and accept my proposal so as to enable me establish a serious relationship with you, and I promise you that you will not regret knowing and establishing a serious relationship with me and likewise you will not feel or have any disappointment from me after establishing a serious relationship with each other. Please you are to tell me your full name, e-mail address, contact address, and phone number in your reply for easy communications Thanks in anticipation of your prompt and positive response to this request.

Sincerely Yours,

Michael S. Smith
