God bless you and thanks,
how are you? Happy to meet you. I got your contact via this site, I seriously have interest to invest on a profitable business in your country, the money I want to invest was acquired from my church member, and then I was his financial adviser. The amount to invest is ($14.5 million US dollars) presently, but I’m the present Catholic Church leader in my parish, if you will like to assist me as a partner, you must have the fear of God? Kindly indicate your interest, and all other details relating to the funds will be revealed to you as we progress on. Confidentiality contact my direct e-mail address ([email protected] or [email protected]) also indicate your direct telephone number, when replying this mail, God will guide us and with good health Amen,
God bless you and your family,
Rev, Chris

scary to think that they can intrude on gransnet, open an account and do that, crazy!

I think this is the 3or 4th thread on this subject I think it's been dealt with.

Yes, tanith , it probably has been dealt with, and it does seem like a pretty obvious scam, but you keep reading stories about people who have been conned out of lots of money, and so I think it doesn't hurt to mention scams now and again. Particularly if they are being sent as PMs on Gransnet! It's only friendly to let us know; thank you Serkeen

Sorry, tanith, I hadn't realised that there were several threads today about this. I thought you meant over some time. [goes away to read all the active threads list properly]

Your welcome Wheniwasyourage x

I did not realise either and I always choose last day posts ? ?

Anyways it happened to me today so when you say it has been dealt with I am confused because if it has been dealt with why did I receive this message yesterday thanks smile

Yes I got this one. I decided that I was nowhere near God fearing enough so I had to ignore it. grin

I received it too. Deleted it straight away. Noticed it said 'grans net' as sender.
