I just received this e-mail
You're invited to: PLEASE MY DEAREST ONE I NEED YOUR HELP.
By your host: Princess.A Omarou
Date: Monday 28 September 2009
Time: 0:00 - 1:00 (GMT +00:00)
Street: Dearest One, I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you aboundantly and you would never regreat this.I am a female student from University of Burkina-Faso,Ouagadougou.I am 27 yrs old. I'd like any person who can be caring,loving and home oriented.I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you.I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me and my brother transfer this fund out to your country. Well, my father died earlier two year ago and left I and my junior brother behind.He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death.I was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my junior brother is still young and my mother is not literate enough to know all my father's wealth. He left the sum of USD 10,500, 000.00 dollars (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)in a security company.This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Shell petroleum development company(spdc)and chevron oil company operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town.Now,I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your bank account and I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely. I am ready to pay 30% of the total amount to you if you help us transfer this fund and another 10% interest of Annual After Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over.If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund, kindly reach my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) please,note that this transaction is 100% risk free and I hope to commence the transfer as quick as possible,I will send you my picture as soon as I hear from you.I am waiting to hearing from you.Yours Sincerely,Princess Aicha Omurou.
Will you attend? RSVP to this invitation
What?...You will not rescue this Damsel in Distress? Ride in on a White Horse and rescue da money!
LMAO, this one of the funnier ones I have read.
I feel so cheated... I thought I was her Only dearest one
Now I need to go find myself another royalty friend...and that's not gonna be easy as Princesses don't just grow on trees...don't ya know
Haven't seen one of those in almost a year. Give them your account number and Wham! You are stripped of all you have.
Oh yes! Aks for a photo!I want to see the junior brother, too!
I admit I am no expert on royalty. But what kind of country has a princess that they don't allow to have money?
Hate to put a damper on your enthusiasm, Tantrum, but I would be cautious on this. She might be a golddigger
We are all having fun of course but there really is a serious side to all of this.
Last year alone Americans lost over 100 million and Canadians about 30 million to stupid scams like this. I am pretty sure the recession had something to do with it. people get desperate and will do anything.
believe it or not there really is a need for education in these types of things.
i received this kind of scam on my email - mention i that i won i lottery for £2 million - then i just replied back - to them - you can have my scam 2 million £ LoL
i would write back, all innocent
"sure, tell me what i need to do" then pretend to do it, giving a fake account number, etc. keeping her busy for hours, finally asking her to call me and give her the number to the FBI.
MY oh my scammer just don't know what to invent anymore. Tantrum please be careful, can be a hacker on the other end waiting to get all you info.
I'm not giving any info. Don't worry. I wasn't born yesterday
Tantrum, I don't comprehend--how do you rate getting a princess? Mine are always dudes!

Hubpages tried to pay me and they encountered this error. I've already contacted PayPal regarding this and they've told me that there's nothing wrong with my account. While I'll contact them once again, I'd be very helpful if you guys could help me figure out what it is. Has anyone ever ran into...

JP Morgan Chase is considering capping debit card transactions to $100 or even $50. It's all about fees they charge per transaction, currently $.44 and proposed to be slashed by Congress to $.12.That's a big hit for banks, yes.But after years of "training" us to swipe our debit cards...

I transferred money to my bank account from PayPal. I thought it would only transfer on business days, but the status went from pending to completed. Does that indicate that the money is currently in the bank, or is it just some kind of verification, and it won't be in until business days?

I have been hearing from a lot of friends online about Paypal closing down their account because they had started making big money online. This is scary because not only are you at the risk of losing all the money you have in paypal but also a few clients as Paypal is the most preferred online...
