my dear dear!
How was your night there in your country, I think we had a good night and that the atmosphere there in your country is very nice today? Mine is a bit hotter here in Dakar, Senegal.

My name is Mandi mercy n, i am (23) years, single (never married before), just on the skin, 1.73cm. While age does not matter in a real relationship, so I’m comfortable with his age, I’m from the city called Byumba northern city of Rwanda in eastern Africa, and am currently residing here in Dakar as a result of the genocide of the escaped civil war in my country some years ago.

My late father Dr Dion Mandi was a politician and manager of a [GOLD MINE AND INDUSTRIAL COMPANY] KIGALI the capital of my country, Rwanda, before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and a father in cold blood.

It’s only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a nearby country Senegal where I am living now as refugee.I want to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and what you are doing presently.I will tell more about myself in my next mail.Attached here is my picture.Hoping hear from you as soon as possible.

The Pastors Tel number is ( +221-761325986) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel. my condition here i don’t have any right or privileged to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.Please listen to this,i have my late father’s statement of account and death certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank in which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $3.5M(three Million five Hundred Thousand Dollars) So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.I kept this secret to people here the only!
person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.
So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don’t tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it. Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking. My favorite language is English but our language is French but i speak English very fluently.

Online Profits

Google Scam titled “Online Profits”,  this scam claims google will pay you to post links, and you will get money in 7-10 days.   However, I can assure you this is a scam.  Google doesn’t pay people to post links.  And as a full time internet marketer I can tell you Google pays commissions monthly as long as you meet the minimum payment threshold.  Here is a copy of the scam.

Hi ######,

Thanks for confirming your email and welcome to the Course!

Yes, it’s true, you can really get Google and eBay to PAY YOU
every week for posting website links.

No one needs to buy anything from you, Google or eBay in order to
get paid every week and you can work from your home computer (or
anywhere with internet access).

Read the detailed report at:

My results with Google have been astounding. Within four weeks, I
was generating $5,500 a month at home. All I do is post the links
Google gave me. I don’t even have to sell anything. Just post the
website links and get paid. You can do the same because Google is
always looking for more hardworking freelancers.

Here’s The Process:

Step 1:
Get Your Google Fast Cash System — Just pay s/h.

Step 2:
Get Your eBay Auction Success System — Just pay s/h

Step 3:
Once you receive them follow the directions for BOTH Kits. Cash
your check when Google and eBay send them out (usually within 7-10
days). You can also choose to have them wire it directly to your
bank account.

There it is, I told you it was simple.

Remember: I use this same system every single day to pull in loads
of money, anyone can do it including you, get your Kits today and
get started!

IPhone Virus

Rumor has it that there is going to be an IPhone virus released on Thursday.  While there is no need to panic yet, users need to watch out for unusual text messages and immediately turn off the IPhone if they get any. The bug which opens the door for IPhone viruses was found by Two researchers, Charles Miller and fellow cybersecurity researcher, Collin Mulliner.  The virus is transmitted through SMS.  As of the time of this article there is no security patch for it yet.  This virus will kill your IPhone.

This is for You Email Virus

We have received reports of a scammer on EBay selling a 2006 Big Dog Mastiff, a buyer caught on to him and called him out on the scam.  The scammer got angry and sent an email to them titled “This is for you”  when the buyer openned the email the icons on their screen disappeared.  Be very carefull when buying items on EBay especially if the seller seems overly eager to get the payment.  I believe the scammer contacted previous bidders who didn’t win the original bid saying the other buyer couldn’t make payment to by-pass Ebay.

Robin Quivers bathing suit photo

Are you for the Robin Quivers bathing suit photo?  Then you better check here first, the infamous photo is tough to find.  Robin is Howard Stern’s funny sidekick and there has been a tremendous amount of search looking for the pictures.  Well becareful because there have been scammers already targeting the search engines with the keywords and links that send the photo searcher to a virus.  So make sure when you find these pictures of Robin, they are on a reputable source.


It has been my experience when dealing with people, if they state something like this is 100% risk free and very legal, then usually it is not.  The my private email address email from Mrs. Hendrietta is a good example of an email scammer stating the same thing.  However, as the main writer on I tend to see a lot of those type emails which are just scams.  You can see the email below.
