From john kone
Abidjan,Cote d` Ivoire,
West Africa.


Dearest one,

It is my pleasure to write you after much consideration, since I can
not be able to see you face to face at first, please I need your help. I
am john kone, the only son of late JOSEPH KONE, from Cote d'Ivoire (I
am 22years of age.)

My father was a liability Cocoa and Gold merchant in Abidjan , Cote
d'Ivoire before his untimely death.After his business trip to Tunisia,to
nagociate on a cocoa and gold business he wanted to invest in Tunisia, a
week after he came back from Tunisia, he got an accident with my mother
of which my mother died instantly but my father died five days after in
a private hospital. On that faithful afternoon, I didn?t know that my
father was going to leave me after I had earlier lost my mother, but
before he gave up the ghost, it was as if he knew he was going to die.

He my father, (MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE) he called me to his
bed side and told me that he deposited the sum of ($10.5m) Ten Million
five Hundred Thousand US Dollars in a bank here in Cote D' Ivoire.That
the money was meant for his cocoa and Gold business he wanted to
establish in Tunisia, according to my father he deposited the money in a
fixed suspense account using my name as the next of kin, He instructed me
to seek for a reliable and trust worthy business partner for my life
time investment abroad. Now I have succeeded in locating the deposit
documents and the bank where this money is here in Abidjan,Cote d`Ivoire.
Due to war in my country Cote d'Ivoire, I am now seeking for your
assistance to help me transfer this money out from my country C?te d?Ivoire
to your account abroad so that we should invest it in any meaningful
and lucrative business in your country because this is my only hope in
life. I am willing to offer you 15% of the total fund if only you can
help me out of my present predicament.

Dear one i seek your assistance in the following ways honourably

(1.) To provide a bank account where this money can be transfered into.

(2.) To make arrangements for me to come over to your country after the
successful transfering of this money into your account, to come and
further my education.

(3.) To help invest this money in a profitable business since I am only
22yrs of age and do not know much about business.

(4) To sponsor me transfer this money into your account,

(5). I want you to promise me that you are not going to betray me after
the money gets into your account.

The worst part of it is that my uncle is trying to kill me over this
money because i refused to hand him over the documents covering this
money, He has sold all my father's landed properties including his cars
which rightful belong to me and now he want me to hand over the banking
document of my father in my possesion which i refused.Now he said that he
will have this money by all means even if it means killing me, so
because of this I ran away from home and hide in a hotel,pending when this
money will be transfered so that i can leave the country for my safty.
please reply me to my private box at (
thank's and allah bless you.

Yours sincerely,

The real Maxwell Edison is such an

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Red vs Blue

Upstanding character I wonder if someone should reply that if Maxwell doesn't get this money straight away he's likely to bring out his Silver Hammer and bash the fool to a slow painful lingering death?

Actually the same people who click on anything because it's there and offering something for nothing are the types who would respond to this type of thing.

The one that I got last week was far more honest it was someone from Africa asking for money to finish his education he only wanted 200 British Pounds. not even an offer of any money.

But Maxwell is such a nice person who doesn't want to take up this generous offer as it isn't even Petty Cash to him he's posting it here for anyone else who's interested in helping this poor fellow. Isn't Max a Nice Generous Fellow at heart? Now all he has to do is remember the spots to hit with that Silver Hammer of his to do the most pain. This would prevent this fool posting something like this again but we would have to stop Max before he killed him as Maxwell would be having way too much fun. :^0

Sorry Steffi

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Yes

But that kind of reminds me of the Cat In The Hat books and every time I see the Green Eggs & Ham I just want to belt the Pu$$y to death with the closest thing handy.

Anyway I don't think that it's currently safe to be on TR as I can see that Poor Neil is being ganged up on by the Terrible Trio GG, Shelly and Steffi May God Have Mercy on His Poor Soul!

Maxwell you are a lucky bastard you know that don't you?

Just give him your Bank Account Details and once the money is transfered into it forget about him and make out that his uncle has managed to find & kill him. B-)

Yes I know the entire thing stinks to high heaven just forward the original to Beth and she'll delete that account and that will be the end of everything. ;\

I don't know some people just get all the luck and us plebs get offered nothing. :_|
