    decentralisation in ivory caost.  

    My late husband Mr Emile Boga Doudou was assineted at
    the time d’une tentative of blow of d’état dating from

    $ USD (thirty five million dollars).  

    To be able to invest in Europe in order to build the

    I can't believe people fall for stuff like this. The very first time I got one many years ago, when I was young, dumb and gullible, I was excited for all of two seconds before I thought, &quot;Hey, wait a minute! This has got to be a scam of some sort!&quot;

    Many have tried to con me with &quot;free&quot; things over the years, but there's always one thing to send up a red flag for a scam artist. They claim to want to give you free prizes or money, but for some reason, they need you to give them some money or a credit card number first? Come on now!

    I got these about once a month. Then, I responded to one, told whoever it was that I did not have a bank account because I couldn't afford it, but if he would send me $500 cash, I would be happy to open one so I could help him. Never got another offer.

    When I get those, usually I delete 'em. HOWEVER... sometimes I get a 'wild hare' idea to mess with 'em.

    I use a @yahoo.com account with some strange return name so they don't know who it really is. Then I ask 'em what they need. They usually want the front page/picture of my US Passport. So I give 'em one.. (Not a real one, natch!)

    It is a US Passport with a picture of William Shatner in his Captain Kirk uniform (the new one with teh white piping on the shoulders) and it has &quot;Captain (ret) James Tiberius Kirk with his fictional home town in Iowa, birthdate, etc. on it. (Relaly looks official!)

    I tell them that I'm retired fromt he military and am interested.
    They always reply to 'James' and entice me. I tell 'em bout my home and toss a bunch of stuff that I recall from 'Star Trek' along wth names and locations of various characters.

    I even had ONE person wanting to know how they could get a 'corbomite device' and use it. I had another one wanting to knwo how the 'Tantalus Field' worked. But usually after a while I tired of it and told them that I have been recalled to service and must return to the Enterprise and resume my 5 year mission.

    I even told one guy I couldn't leave the US due to the imposition of &quot;General Order 7' which is the only death penalty offense that we have on the books.

    I know THEy didnt' get it.. but I had a laugh, none the less
