I was quite surprised to open a PM here at Pattern Review today and find I had received a scam email. Here is the text if it:


"From Mrs JOY KONE
16,Rue des jardins Cocody
les Deux-Plateaux
Abidjan Côte D'Ivoire
please reply me with this email joy_kone00116@yahoo.com

Dearest, Chosen Partner

I am Mrs. JOY KONE from Ivory Coast. I am a widow being that I lost my husband. My husband was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death . He was assassinated by the rebels following the political uprising.

Before his death he made a deposit of Ten Million USA Dollars uS$10,000,000.00)here in Côte d´Ivoire in security company .This fund he intended to buy a cocoa processing machine. I want you to help me for us to retrieve this fund and transfer it to your account in your country or any safer place as you will be the beneficiary and recipient of the fund .

I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial production. This is my reason for writing to you. Please if you are willing to assist me and my only son Francis,indicate your interest in replying soonest.
Thanks and best regards .
Mrs.JOY KONE .
please reply me with this email joy_kone00116@yahoo.com"


I am hoping Deepika or soemone else can find where this came from and prevent these scams from being done on our wonderful community. This person does not show up as a member, so how did they access the PM?

Yup, I got it too. Interesting they waited until Dee wasn't around.

I think someone should post a warning in the misc section as it will get more viewing there.

People here are so good hearted, I fear someone will fall for this.
