I am well impressed. I have created a gmailaccount for myself a while ago. (thank you Charlie!). I haven't been using it a lot yet. I am too attached to my Yahoo, which has given me 100mb as well. So far since the first of july I have received the huge number of 23 e-mails. I get double the spam every day on my work account. The 24th mail arrived today. And I have to admit, I was surprised. Mr. Baba Bello must be incredibly fast. I have sent even less mails from my gmail, but apparently somehow he managed to get hold of my address. Not only was that a huge effort, but he wants to reward me as well.

Dear Sir.

How are you and your business? I am very interested in doing business in
your country, therefore I would like to seek your assistance and help. I
am particularly interested in properties but your advise on other areas of
private sector would be appreciated. I got your contact at the world trade
center here in spain and I am of the believe that you would be of great
help in guiding me to a successful exploration of the investment potential
of your country which grantee good capital returns and human security. As
a result of this, I can take you in confidence basically because of the
source of my fund hereby believing that your assistance will be of
profitable advantage to us.

I am Mr.BABA BELLO formerly of United Libration Army of Northern Angola
{UNITA} under the military leadership of Gen. Gonas Savimbi. My comrades
and I sensing the weakness of our Libration movement and loss of
confidence in facing a better trained and equiped fedral gorverment Army
towards the last one year. We decided to escape with some fund under our
care. We deposited this money with a private security firm in Spain, it
was deposited as a family treasure so as not to let the company know the
real content.

This was made possible, true special arrangement. South Africa however not
being safe for me because of it closeness to Angola, I escaped to spain
were I'm staying at the moment as a refugee. I would therefore like you to
help me in every possible way in securing this fund to your country since
I intend to live and run my business there. The amount involved is, FOURTY
million five hundred thounsand united states dollar {$40.5m}

Sir, I would like you to understand my modesty in imploring for your help
which is categorically due to my lack of business experience and exposure.
I also want you to ackwnoledge the fact that I am a carrier soldier who by
virtue of the war was opportune to posses the amount of money with me.

This fund being the basis of my future and business ambition, your
friendship, assistance and advise will be immensely appriciated while your
effort will be rewarded by parting with some 30% of the total fund
to you. Be also assured that you stand no risk of any kind as it was an
event during a war situation and I look forward to your urgent reply.

best regard.

Mr, Bababello aku

So no risk of any kind, yet I can make 12 million dollars? Very tempting. I am considering going into business with him, if only for the fact that he managed to find my gmail. Unless one of you needs the money more than I do, please do feel free to contact Bababello. I'm sure that if you tell him I sent you, he is more than willing to negiotiate with you as well.
