Not really related to the typical email I get from people who read the tech talk board but thought y'all would get a kick out of it.
Since i have been more lurker then participant over the past year or so I can only presume that the reason i recvd it was due to my recent posts. would mean it came from a server in France
Eric what you been up to? Image

Any who ....

Dear sir,

My name is Daniel Savimbi the son of late
Unita rebel movement leader of Angola,Mr Jonas Savimbi
of the blessed memory.

I am 21 yrs old and a student of abidjan university
here in cote d’ iviore,my mother is from Lisbon in
portugal,but she died of heart attack when I was a kid
3 and half years old.

After the death of my mother my father took me so
special because I was the only child he got from that
marriage untill his death on feb_2002 and I became an

Since the death of my father things have not been the
way it used to be in my life,my step mothers and
their children never believe tht I am their brother
any longer,even the little wealth the Angola
government gave to the family from former Unita
deposit,they sheardit among their selfs and nothing
was given to me,all they used to tell me is to go back
to portugal and treace my mothers birth place and I
have not been to portugal before but now I have
decided to go because if I waste more time it is
going to be my funeral.

Now I have one problem,which I need very
urgent personal assistance,my father kept a secret
deposit of $16.5m cash for me in a security and
finance company
here in abidjan with all the documents intact with me
in my hostel.

The only problem is that I have to attained the
withdrawal age of 32 yrs and I don’t want to wait
untill I am 32 yrs because any thing can happen before
that time.

I have been to the company and they advised to look
for trustworthy and honest person whom i will do the
change of ownership with his name as my gurdian and
come with him to the company and the deposit will be
released to us.even the company does not know the
contents of the deposit because they where deposited
as family valuables.

I decided to look for assistance out side Africa
because almost very body from this part of the world
is corrupt and I don’t want to take chances because
this is the only thing I have to live on for the rest
of my life.
As this case stands I am ready to give you 20 % of the
total amount for your assistance,and you can reach me
My email address is
Waiting for your urgent reply thanks and God bless.
Best regard
Daniel Savimbi
