I got this email the other day. Pretty sure it's a scam... 8) This is the email in full and it is unedited, apart from my email which I've taken out...

Email begins here:

Please I need your help,

How are you doing today , Hope you are in perfect condition? Please i apologies with you to exercise a little patience and read through my letter, i feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business , i know my letter will come to you as a surprise because we have never meet for the first time, but i really like to have a good relationship with you because i have a special reason why i decided to contact you, I decided to contact you due to the urgency of my situation here, My name is Miss Mary Kipkalya Kones,25yrs old female originated from Kenya in East Africa.My Father was the former Kenyan Road Minister and Assistant Minister of Home Affairs Lorna Laboso had been on board the Cessna 210, which was headed to Kericho and crashed in a remote area called Kajong'a, in western Kenya, After the burial of my beloved father, my wicked stepmother and uncle conspired there self together and sold my father's property which the shared the money among themselves and live nothing for me, fortunately one faithful morning, as i was cleaning my late father bed room i found an important documents which my late beloved father use to deposit huge amount of money in one bank in Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin so i travelled to Burkina Faso since is a nearby country to withdraw the money for a better life so that i can take care of myself and start a new life.


But on my arrival to the bank in Burkina Faso, the Branch Manager of the Bank whom i met in person told me that my father's instruction to the bank is that the money would only be release to me when i am married or present a trustee foreigner who will help me invest the money overseas, i am in search of an honest and reliable person who will help me and stand as my foreign trustee so that i will present him to the Bank for transfer of the money to his bank account overseas and i have chosen to contact you after my prayers and i believe that you will not betray my trust.


You may wonder why i am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, To me i will say that my spirit and mind convinced me that you may be the true person to help me, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate to your country because my stepmother have threaten many times to assassinate me due to her wickedness and jealousy’s because she has no issue for my father since she was married after the accident that killed my mother years back, The amount of the money deposited is($8.5 USD) Million United State Dollars, the Branch manager whom i met in person have confirmed to me that the money is there and that i am the next of kin but the only thing he told me is that my father's instruction to the bank is that the money would only be release to me when i present a trustee foreigner who will help me and invest the money overseas, and he advice me to look for a honest and reliable person who will represent me as my trustee so that their bank will release the money to me.


However, you will help by recommending a nice University in your country so that i can complete my studies. It is my intention to compensate you with 40% of the total money for your efforts and kindness services and the balance shall be my capital investment in your country. As soon as i receive your positive response showing your interest i will inform the bank that i am ready to present a foreign trustee who will receive the fund on my behalf.Please i want you to keep this only to your self for now until the bank transfer the fund. I beg you not to disclose it till i come over because i am afraid of my stepmother who has threatened to kill me and have the money alone ,I thank God today that am out from my country (KENYA) but now In (Burkina Faso) where the money is deposited.Thanks for your patient and understanding hope to hear from you .God Bless you.help me for the sake of God and humanity.We are anxiously waiting for your acceptance reply.





Yours forever friend,
Miss Mary Kipkalya Konse.

It's standard Advanced Fee Fraud scam.

Just delete it

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

We've seen the story of <firstname> Kipkalya and the Koneheads for years! To go along with Kones and Kericho, they ought to invent a character named Koshua :D but they don't have the sense to do it. It's a very common scam script.
