I have just received one of these messages by PM here (see below). If you receive one please note that they are a scam and if you are naive enough to reply then it is likely they will take you for a lot of money. Please delete immediately should you receive one.

Maybe a Mod can send a warning PM to all rather than have this message up ?

May the peace of GOD be upon you my name is Miss Mariam Musa the only daughter of late Mr/Mrs Mohd Musa . My father and mother were very wealthy farmers and cocoa merchant when they were both alive. After the death of my father,long ago, my mother was controling his business untill she was poisoned by her business associates which she surffered and died.

Before the death of my mother on October 2003 in a private hospital here in Abidjan where she was admitted, she secretly called me on her bed side and disclosed to me about the sum of four million five hundred US dollars thousand. USD ($4.5million ) she left in suspense account in one of the bank here in Abidjan, it was the money she intended to transfer oversea for investment before she was posioned. She also instructed me that I should seek for a foreign partner in any country of my choice who will assist me transfer this money in oversea account where the money
will be save and invested wisely.

Because of the current political problem here in Ivory Coast I decided to transfer the money to abroad where it will be save and invested. therefore, I am crying and seeking for your kind assistance in the following ways:

(1) To contact the bank were this fund was deposited and provide a safe bank account into where the money will be transferred for investment.
(2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am a girl of 21 years old.
(3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a resident permit for me in your country.

As soon as I receive your urgent reply via my email [email protected] indicating your interest to assist me to successfuly transfer the money into your yet nominated account i will give you more information.

Yours lovely,

Mariam Musa.
