Ummm... Boss? @Dave Have we been hacked? I just got this in my Tree Mail. How do we ban Aud111 from the site so this doesn't happen to other people? No, I didn't respond. I didn't even bother to read to the end.

Dear One,

I am Ms. Audrey Vanegas, the only daughter of late Mr. and Mrs. James Vanegas.

My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan; the economic capital of Ivory Coast, my father was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outings on a business trip.

My mother died when I was a baby and since then my father took me so special. Before the death of my father in a private hospital here in Abidjan he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of Ten million, five hundred thousand United State Dollars. USD ($10,500,000.00) left in fixed / suspense account in one of the prime bank here in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) that he used my name as his only child for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund.

He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates that I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where i will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management.

Dear, I am honorably seeking your assistance in the following ways:

(1) To provide a bank account into which this money would be transferred to.

(2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am only 19years.

(3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a resident permit in your country.

Moreover, Please contact me through my private email ID for more details (avanegass1@yahoo.com) and i am willing to offer you 20% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/ input after the successful transfer of this fund into your nominated account overseas. Furthermore, you indicate your options towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be concluded within four days you signify interest to assist me.

Anticipating hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Ms. Audrey Vanegas.

Not a hack. Somebody is spamming using the treemail system, though. As soon as @dave sees this I'm sure he'll ban the user (they just signed up today).
