From frank kufo.
frankkufo0@yahoo.fr
Abidjan,Ivory Coast

Dear one,

I am frank kufo, The only child of late Mr and Mrs kufo, My Late father was a very wealthy guitar distributor based in abidjan, the economic capital of ivory coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal.

When my mother died on the 21st october 1990, my father took me so special because iam motherless. Before the death of my father on 24th januery 2004 in a private hospital here in abidjan.

He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has 100 parker fly classics left in a music studio in a local record company here in abidjan, that he used my name as his only son for the next of kin for title to these splendedly crafted machines.

He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, that i should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where i will export these machines and use it for musical purposes ,(such as writing Ivory Coast traditional ballads in d minor). Dear,i am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways .

1) To provide a music studio where these machines would be transfered.
2) To serve as the guardian of these machines.
3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education at Berklee College of Music and to secure a residential permit for me in your country.
moreover, dear, i am willing to offer you 20 Parker Flys as compensation for your effort input after the successful transfer of these machines to your nominated location oversea.

Hoping to hear from hearing you soonest.

Thanks And God Bless.

Best regards.
Frank Kufo.





Now- I might have fallen for that version....

All forums have weak points where spammers can get in. If it's a human spammer, there's pretty much nothing that any forum software can do to prevent it. The administrators simply have to delete that user and ban them, etc.

I have frickin spammers annoying me at my own forum, too. I need to do those mods to prevent that in the future... [:0]

It's been over two years since I got spammed, that record is now gone thanks to this forum! I understand the complexity and impossibility of being 100%, so don't fret it Parker. I'm still a forum fan, I just hate the junk! [xx(]
