    So I signed up with world-dating-partners about two weeks ago and they have a huge user base and a great forum with admin support, but anyway onto the point of this post. I recieved a message on my profile from a new user named Ejercito enriquez Estrada a person adopted by the former president of the phillipenes. Which interestingly enough checks out (beauty of wikipedia). So..read the message below and tell me what you think. I don't know what to think because that's qwuite the story to make up to sucker me into something and an odd place to post it seeing as how they would have to sign up to the network hunt down my name and message me..but anyways read it and post what you think. Thanks.


    Dear Friend,


    This might surprise you because we have not met neither in person nor by correspondence, but I believe that it takes just one day to meet or know someone either physically or through correspondence but believing you can be of great assistance in helping with guardlines on how to commences some kind of joint vanture in your locality with you if do not mind or mentored me how to go about that in your place.My names are Ejercito enriquez Estrada commonly called Madam Estrada Josephe Costal Rica origin, though adapted and brought up in the household of Joseph Estrada the ousted former president of Philippine, who was then the special courier mistress of the then former ousted president of Philippine(Joseph Estrada)now on political trials concerning financial misappropriation of his countrys national fund.

    While working for him as special courier protocol, Often at time,Joseph Estrada confided most of his foreign investment and sent me often to help him make deposit of metallic truck containing several million of united states dollars on his behalf as his courier protocol officer far in remote countries in Asia, Africa, and carribean he intended having large foreigh investment and properties away from philippine for reasoning ranging from insecurity in philipine and others.However ,I was used by him (Joseph Estrada )to deposit a metallic truck containing huge sum about Twenty million united states dollars in disquised of family valuable with a security firm in remote states in Africa in disguised of family valuable,according to him he said due to political reason and his political status he never wanted his names involve in this deposit overseas or his identity attached to the deposition of this metallic truck containing the aforementioned fund .

    Honestly speaking,he promised and bestowed a lot of pledges and promised to help me have some kind of investment in some country of my choice which he never fulfill, rather he suddenly resorted in plotting against me for fear of exposuring him to his country government placing him on some kind of trial for national fund misappropriation,considering my insecurity in Manilla -philippine here i have no option but to relocate from Manilla here to some peaceful country like yours couple with the fact that i would like to confide this into your hands and discuss ways how you can be of a liaisoning assistance or a kind of middle man in this by assuring me you can make good bussiness partnership with me so that i will discuss and give you some important deposit documents concerining this metallic truck i had being talking about to you, for you to contact this security firm holding the metallic truck with the aforementioned fund and discuss how it can be relocated to your country through special diplomatic shipment arrangement to your place without requiring you to travel there where the resident country of the security firm,please consider my proposal to you and drop me a line so that we move ahead with my fund relocation plans to your country for the joint bussiness investment partnership with you there in your country.

    I will be expecting to hear from you to this regard to enable me forward to you more details or guardlines on how we can go about this, i mean to give you the security firm contact details, related deposit documents and hint on what you have to tell the security company on my behalf as my foreigh bussiness partner whom i did discussed with them that my business partner shall be reaching them to demand for the relocation or shipment of the truck box to your vicinity on my behalf while i join you, i intended to commences the joint venture with you if you care,please be assure all expected of you is to help me be the middle man for relocation of this said truck box or liason of the shipment.The reason is that i have paid for the shipment before contacting you that was when thing was good for me and also for the Up keeping of the box with them till date,all you need to do is to stand on my behalf to make claims and l will join you.I will be very willing to hear from you again.

    Love,

    Madam ejercito Enriquez Estrada.

    Yeah... it's fake. Wikipedia works both ways. You were able to look up the name to verify - but so could he.

    Zach how young are you?

    Do you really need the opinion of others just to confirm that the email you received is a nothing but the same elementary crap scam?

    And even if youre still unsure, you could have just copied and pasted 2 sentences of the email on google and youll have your answer in 3 seconds

    Lets ALWAYS exercise our ability to THINK, its for your our own benefit

    Well I'm new to the game and I'm very young, 16. So my ability to think has not peaked yet and I was just being cautious so sorry for wasting your time reading this post. My apologies.

    Don't worry about it. That's why we all are here - to help and be helped. Don't feel bad for asking. :) Just remember that if something sounds too good to be true, chances are that it is.

    Zach, there's no need to apologies but live and learn by this experience.

    You're going to see this same kind of rubbish but with different wording, come at you from a thousand-and-one places. However, if you adopt GrotesqueGoddess' wise adage that if "something sounds too good to be true - it probably is;" you'll be well protected. :)
