NEEDLESS TO SAY I NEVER RESPONDED. PRINTED OUT THE LETTER AND REPORTING IT TO THE FBI.

Now this letter came after I had signed up to roommates.com and got a response from a monica olly who said she was in Australia, director of activities for a retirement home....she wanted me to set up yahoo IM and I did. Then she tells me she is in UK, not England, taking minutes at a meeting. Her post in roommates.com was very well structured and excellent spelling. Her emails were not. She wanted to send me a check or cashiers and asked for my name and address and telephone number. I gave her that. But as I felt she was being evasive...I get this letter from so called MR Mark. I emailed her and told her of the letter and that I felt she was coming to US to set up some kind of business receiving money. I told her to never contact me again...blocked her email and I thought Yahoo IM. The other nite..he she comes...I put her on ignore.

So be very careful with roommates.com which I reported this to them. I discontinued my membership.

My son has received an email from south africa wanting to transfer 6.5 million us dollars to your bank account. some sob story. Her name is: Miss Chuganzani Jennifer Jabulani.

Then I received an email saying they had viewed my resume on the database of Monster. Offering me a job as paralegal for $60,000. Again, I didn't reply and called Monster to confirm it is a scam. I sent the letter to Monster via email.

This is enough. I am tired of this whole thing. I am told it is getting terrorist money into the US.

So that is my story.

You need to watch out when you put your ad in the paper any more. My mother put an ad in to sell some puppies and a scam artist from Nigera (they said they were from France) called inquiring about the puppies. I checked the ip address where the email came from and it was Nigeria. They sent money orders (more than what asked for "for the handlers") which I called and verified that they were fake. I was surprised that the lengths that they went to by searching our ad that was placed in the local paper which they found on the internet, then called us using ip-relay and then continued with the scam using email. I tried contacting the newspaper and a television station about it but they never returned my call.

I have not provided my email since I do not want spammed by bots.

I was contacted by WAMCO TEXTILE LIMITED and fall for this Fraud. Not sure if I can do anything about it but I am also being contacted by other companies to do the same thing. I have the Fake Money Orders back from the bank.
