what I can't believe is that you'd HAVE TO ASK! Is this a serious thread, or somebody just wanting to see how many people would post? I can't believe it's a real thread, it's such an obvious answer!

But: just in case the OP is that naive... BLOCK & REPORT THE GUY IMMEDIATELY! JEEZE!!

and one more! i noticed that for many of these, the 'to' email address 9which would be mine) isn't showing, which means the email was sent bcc to who knows how many. in this case, the person sent it to themselves, then got to me bcc, obviously, since it isnt showing my email addy?

but some of them do email one person at a time, i noticed that also. i guess they try different scenarios to convince u that 'this one' is real...


From: "Bridggie Williams"
Subject: From Mrs Bridggie Williams.
Date: Mon, 19 Jun 2006 2104 +0000

From Mrs Bridggie Williams.

Dear One,

For sure this mail would definitely come to you as a surprise, but do take
your good time to go through it before disposing it, as I mean well.This is
not one of those unsolicited SCAM emails ln briefy introduction, l am Mrs
Bridggie Williams a nationality of Philippine .

I am married to Mr. Chima Williams who worked with Filippino embassy in
Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2001. We were married
for eleven years without a child. he died after a brief illness that lasted
for only four days. Before his death we were living together in good

When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum ofUSD$6.5Million (Six
Million Five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) in one of good security company
here in COTE D' IVOIRE. Presently, this money is with the security company.

Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months
due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having
known my condition I decided to donate this fund to Orphanages (less
privilages) or to an individual that will utilize this money the way I am
going to instruct here acording to my desire. I needed good and God fearing
partner that will use this fund for the helping orphanages, Research centres
and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God
is maintained.

I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this
money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and never loved me for
once through out my marriage expereince with my late husband. therefore,I
don't want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't
want a situation whereby this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence
the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I
know where I am going to.

I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health
as my Medical Doctor advised and because of the presence of my family
relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security
company who will assist you and work with you concerning the deposited money
in the security company. I will also issue you a letter of authority that
will empower you as my partner and the beneficiary of the money. I want you
to always pray for me, My happiness is that I lived a life of a aged mother
and worthy Christian.

Any delay in your reply will give me room in looking for contact for this
same purpose. Please assure me that you will act Accordingly as I stated

Thanks and God bless,
Mrs Bridggie Williams.

One of my neighbors passed away several years ago. Two months later, I received a letter from a prestigious law firm in my city. It indicated my neighbor had left me a small bequest for my kindnesses throughout his last illness. I was to call the attoney that was the executor for the estate for an appointment in order that he could fulfill the bequest. The difficulty was my neighbor had eight children, and I knew his eldest was an attorney and the executor of the estate. I called the legitimate executor, and he said several of his father's friends had received the same letter. I agreed to keep the appointment, and as requested, took a cashier's check for $895 to cover administrative costs. In return, I was given what appeared to be a cashier's check for $5,000, supposedly the amount of the bequest. The attorney claimed to be at the courthouse that day and asked if we could meet at a coffee shop. I handed over the check to law enforcement officers in the parking lot, and as the bogus attorney left, he was arrested. The guy had been pulling the same scam for several years. The moral of my tale is that con artists can be everywhere.

So, is Toni waiting to get more responses from those of us that are neither naive nor insecure or any of the other terms people used on here, because Toni is really that guy from Nigeria who's been sending those e mails and messages and is simply compiling a list of people he couldnt otherwise convince of his stories?
All kidding aside, Toni, Tony, Tone'... Please don't feel you need to buy anyone's love or attention and don't ever let anyone intimidate you to the point of questioning your suspicions, gut feelings and decisions, they are there for a reason.
p.s. when you are paying for it, there's actually another term for it, and it's not love...

Obiously your feelings are invested. I had the same situation twice from the same country. I just put them on the unwanted mail list. Do not chat with him,and in that way he can not ask you for money. Are you rich or something? If yes, help the children or the animals that can not help themselves. This man has some nerve. Does not even deserve an explanation. What are you going to say " sorry I work for my money, and you are a snake using the internet to manipulate lonely women who are desperetely looking company. I am not that desperate. I can find it for free". I think totally ignoring these so called "wise guys" is the best thing to do.

TRUST ME!!! From one woman to another, tell him the only thing you'll give him is the ' ping' sound from your aluminum baseball bat!

A woman's best friend is her bank account. As cynical as it may sound, it's the truth. DO NOT send this guy money! In fact, tell him to piss off and never contact you again!

nigeria does not even appear on the instant message thingy

No one is attacking you or your country. I think most people on here are sincere and adult enough that they would not hold your nationality, culture or family tree against you. Never be ashamed of who you are or where you come from. Be loved for who you are.

These men identify themselves as being Nigerian/or being in Nigeria. Put Nigerian Money Schemes into your computer search engine and/or call the American Embassy and they will update you on the reasons for the attitude of all the ladies on here who have been duped by these guys. The reason they transfer money through that country is because there are no laws of protection between the two. These men could be from anywhere. They just launder their money through Nigeria.

I've rethought this.

I think you SHOULD give him the money.

Just think. If you do....the 83,500,382 emails he sends out every day will then stop. So please. Reconsider. Give him the money. Take one for the POF team and help this guy and in turn, all of us out!

Thank you so much!

i have had a similar situation on yahoo, i was messaged by a guy who said he was american and in nigeria and didnt like it there and wanted help to get home, and could i send him money. For last 5 months on a daily basis i get messages off i think the same guy but changing names all the time with different scenarios but he is aways in nigeria, from the amount of messages i have seems like the population of usa are in nigeria working on contracts lololol, i know its a scam, but its a pain when people now message me and i think its him on a diff name. Now i just say im an immigration officer it seems to work

Hahhaha these scammers say they are either US or British, but they type in pigeon english, you can tell staight off they are not american or english, from the way they type. I smell a rat now straight away, i used to think it was just the one person mailing me on different names but after reading all of this i can see its big business. I have been to nigeria and i have to say it is very third world there and very very poor, but nigeria is mostly catholic and christian but no morals when it comes to money and living. They all want to come to US or UK, they know the visa bride thing doesnt work so good now regarding immigration, so they are using the scams, but like someone said earlier, the vulnerable on here who maybe do not come to these sites to read, may be taken in by these as with the good looking pics they send,the offer of love etc and protray themselves as american/bristish, some women/men on here might actually believe them, but how do you stop them on here? block yes but there are hundreds of these a day.

The next time he tells you that you're not very Christlike - tell him that whe Jesus was in the Temple - he overturned tables and shouted in anger - and upset everything. Then tell him you might take a hint and overturn everything in his life if he doesn't let you alone LOL

BUT if you happen to send him $$, I could use some too! LOL
