Hey guys! Here is a pm I got today that I'm sure is a scam. Just wanted everyone to be aware....
[quoteFrom Mrs. Elodine A. Bamba. Abidjan, Ivory Coast, West Africa.
Dearest in the lord,
I am Mrs. Elodine A. Bamba, from Sierra Leone . I am married to late Mr. Alfred Bamba ,who worked with Sierra Leone Embassy in Ivory Coast for Sixteen years before he died in the year 2006, after a brief illness that lasted for only five days. We were married for Eighteen years with a duaghter (Stella) who later died in a motor accident. Before the untimely death of my husband, we were both born again Christians (from Muslim to Christianity). And since after his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home because of the love I have for him . When my late husband was alive, he deposited the sum of (US$1.2M) One Million Two hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in a General Trust Account with a prime bank here in Abidjan,Ivory Coast . Following my ill health, being a victim to cancer , I have decided to donate this fund to a Christain organizations (Church or person) that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct herein,according to the desire of my late husband. I want this fund to be used in Christian Activities like,Orphanages, Christain schools, and Churches for propagating the word of god and to endeavour that the house of the lord is maintained. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and do not know about this deposit . I am not afraid of death since I know where I am going. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that "the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace". I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health situation as well the presence of my late husband's relatives around me . I don't want them to know about this development/wish of my late husband hence I want it to be fulfilled . As soon as I receive your reply, I shall give you the contact of the bank here in Abidjan and would introduce you officially to them. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life as well commit me into your daily prayers. Contact me on this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible since any delay in your reply will give me room to source another Church/christian for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply immediately.
Remain blessed in the Lord. Ello A. Bamba. Avenue 4 Marcory residential 14 bp 211 Abidjan 14 ][/quote]
You got this as a pm from here? Or in your personal email?
Through Embryo Adoption I have learned: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. Lamentations 3:22-24
Yes, it came through here. Here is the rest of it:
