Subject: More About me
Im Happy to Read from you,Well here are some things about me I’m 27 years old, Single and l,I
want you to ((SMILE))!, Anyway i’m half Nigerian and Half American, i
was born and raised in Los angeles, California,
Mom’s Nigerian and my Dad is American, But he passed away a very long
time ago, I miss him so much, you know we used to go hunting together,
we had so much fun((TEARS)), My Mom met my dad when she came to the
states on Vacation, I have a Nigerian accent cos mom always spoke her
Nigerian Language to me, And i got my skinned color from her, She very
beautiful, Well mom and dad had a big fight some years back and it made
my Mom leave to her home country Nigeria, She never came back but
always sent me letter and in it she says to tell dad she loves him, Dad
always missed her, but he wont let anyone know he misses her, Some
years passed by and dad passed a ways in an auto accident, he was drunk
while driving, i’m pretty sure he was trying to drink his thoughts
away, after his Death, his family sold out his House and never thought
about me, I had no place to Live in, So i had to get an apartment for
myself with the money dad left for me in his account, a month ago i got
a call from Nigeria saying my mom is ill, She has Breast Cancer,
Well i had to rush down to Nigeria to be with her, and thats where i am
now, With my beautiful Mom here in Nigeria, Wow! its so hot hear in
Nigeria, So have you ever been to Nigeria before? I’ll have to wait
here In Nigeria till mom gets all better, I cant leave her now cos i’m
all shes got, i pray she recovers pretty soon so i can come back to the
states and meet you in person, I just cant stop talking to mom about
you, You’re one Handsome man,
Anyway its dinner time and i have to go see what i can get for mom at
the grocery store, and when i get back i’ll go check her In the
hospital, I’ll talk to you later….hope to read from you soon
Well, that’s one big bunch of “Scammer Grammar”. The parent always dies, she gets almost nothing. Of course since they are scammers in Africa, they know nothing of the legal process in the U.S. She is also setting the stage for the money request for her Cancerous Mother. Also, her IP address originates in Ghana, not Nigeria.
