I'm getting this letter all of the time on my e-mail from a Prince Johnson. Who's family is being held in a refugee camp. His father had $8 million american dollars in a Security Company in Ghana Africa. His family is offering 20% of the funds to anyone who offers assistance in converting the money to an outside of Africa Banking facility.
Why does this whole thing seem fishy? Is anyone else getting this? I have been getting this for over 2 years. And it's getting old. I've tried to disconnect from getting them but they keep getting thru.
Talk to me folks!

Just delete them it's a scam. I get them on occasion and just delete it. I think they want your bank account so they can supposedly wire the money in when in reality they want to wire your money out.

Also look out for ones about French Dwarf Monkeys being held against their will in fortune cookie factorys in Georgia. It's a scam.

I thank you all for telling me this. I'm just tired of getting trash like that every other day. I wondered why someone would start something so off of the wall like that. And to use a common name like Prince Johnson. I would have thought it would be more origional than that.
If people would use their time to do good instead of trying to use someone else they could do alot of good. What a waste.

Fortune Cookie Factories in Georgia? Hummmm, na it's real.

MDF (alias, Mr Bond) glad to see you are back in one piece.
Your next assignment is to check out the Fortune Cookie Factory.
Should you accept that assignment, Peckery will blow up in 30 seconds.......(boom)..........oops, watch must be fast

People who run confidence scams like this rely on P.T. Barnum's theory:

According to someone I know in the FBI, they don't even investigate this type of scam any more unless someone falls for it, and starts trying to recruit others to the scam.

Hey Sis, You might try the FCC. That is suppose to be one of their jobs if I am not mistaken.
