Just received this Treemail from grace4all2020
Good Day,my good friend my name is. Grace Michel,24 years old medical student, I am the only child of late Michel Akah. i prayed before contacting you in this transfer of my inheritance, please for God sake do not see my mail as embarrassment to you as we do not know each other for the very first time.

What i am saying is that i want to transfer (5.5million Euros) into your account. Will it be possible for you to receive this money into your account without telling me any story when the money enters into your account? This transfer is a risk free transaction.( [email protected]

I inherited this money from my late father Mr Michel Akah may his soul rest in perfect peace. I don't want you have double mind about this transfer because it is legal i have all the legal documents of the deposit. Waiting for your urgent response as soon as you receive this message for more details of the transfer if you will sincere to me.

Yours sincerely,
Grace Michel.


No need to worry about me responding but perhaps it is a new member that needs to be stopped?

Have you guys ever seen the youtube video of the guy who actually engages the spammers who make calls like this on the phone and keeps them on the line BS'ing them so long that THEY finally get exasperated and hang up? I can;t remember how I found it but it was a hoot.

Gee, she refers to all of us as good friends and said she prayed before contacting us.

Just for the fun of it, I googled the name of her deceased uncle, Michel Akah and info comes up about the scams. Green Grin!

I hope you didn't "write back" to their yahoo email address or you may continue being contacted by her/him. Blinking

Green Grin! But my account is so full... there is no room for more plants. Hilarious!

Apparently, I will have to share with everyone... and here I thought I was special. Whistling

I got the same mail from grace4all2020. I call if fraud and already copied it to Dave. I'm sure he will take care of it. Thumbs up

I was just thinking... I thought that a new member was limited to how many treemails they can send and wonder how they were able to send that to so many??
