Hello friends, there's one thing I wanna keep you updated. It's so nice to have your email published so that you get as more friends as you wished. People do take a very bad risk for doing so. Why? If your put your (or your friend's) email in public there's a high risk of having spams in your inbox. I have the same prob and this' due to some people putting my addresses in their websites to direct their clients contact me. This' annoying for sure.

The only and best way to publish your email is by typing as shown below:

mac-at-jambotanzania-dot-net

macATjambotanzaniaDOTnet

mac_at_jambotanzania_dot_net

or the alike.

Sample of some scams: (never reply to such mails)

Subject: PROPOSAL FROM ME MR ALISHYASHI


ATTN PLS:


My Name is Mr. Musa Alishyashi, a credit and finance manager with African Development Bank here in Accra Ghana. In my department i discovered an abandoned, funds (USD$ 20.5 million) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with his entire family in July 2000 in a plane crash.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm

Since i got information about his death, I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.


It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Six years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an Indigene cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. Your percentage will be declare to you as soon as you indicate your interest.

I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated once you have agreed to get this fund transfered through your account.


Therefore, to enable the immediate move of this fund to you arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating.


1.Your full name and address
2.Your telephone and fax number for easy communication.

3.Your company's name and address.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application .
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the movement of the money.

You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately. reply through my alternative Email: musa_01alishyashi@yahoo.fr

Yours Faithfully,


Musa Alishyashi.
