    Banana weird email, just got this has anybody elso gotten one, what is it


    I hope my mail find you very well and in good condition. How are you? I hope fine by Grace of God Almighty. I am also well here in Ghana. I am Michael KAGAME from Ex-Congo, but right now living in Ghana with my Mother.

    I came to get your e-mail contact through the Net but going through your profile I release that you are honest and God fearing person who I can trust and put my confidence in.

    Please, really I donít know you well, but I want you to give me your full contact include your telephone number so that I can call you on phone for one on one talk to discuss matters with you.

    Please, the main reason writing you this mail is that, I need your assistance to assist me invest my fund in your country. But without knowing me well and by my side too, I hope we can not do business together, that is why I want you to give me your details and tell me a little bit about yourself so that Iíll let you know what to you and explain more to you on my next mail. As charity, I wanted to deal direct and in private with you only so that we can come up with good solution; because this is very confidential and I hope my Mother will tell you more when you call me. Please, tell me how I can invest my Fund and what type of business?

    Please, Iíll not go far but in my next mail after receiving your reply Iíll tell you more. I count on you and hope to receive your prompt reply very soon. You can call me on my mobile number 00233 244 544038

    I see he has migrated to Ghana, now.

    These scams have been around for a while.

    I always get the Nigerian ones.

    I get the Nigerian ones too, like "Hope Konora."

    There's a bunch of threads dealing with this.

    Sooner or later they will start using English speakers to compose these e mails.
