It seems the million and billion are very popular words to be tossed around in these spam emails. Don’t they realize it might seem a little more legitimate it started off small? Burkina is also very popular.

Also if she only has two days to live and wants an urgent response, isn’t the phone quicker? Why not randomly dial a number and give them the information. Though I will say, at least she’s not taking any of it for herself, she wants me to give 50% to an ‘offernage’..anyone know where to find one of those?

Now that i am about to end the race like this,

I also have 4.5Million US Dollars at Ecobank here in Burkina Faso and i instructed the bank to transfer the money to the first foreigner that will apply to the bank after i have gone that they should release the fund to him/her,
