MARIAM has never made a post and claims to own a 2005 Bronko in Abidjan (Africa).

sounds like he is fishing......someone should contact him, see what scam he is trying, then turn him in to the online fraud website the FBI runs.

Bob, where the hell do you find some of that crap!?!

I got the email too. Was about to email Chrisitan and ask him to look into it. Fortunately ya'll seem to have things well in hand. Carry on..

Oh, and BTW, I think the guy who plays Danny Concannon on the 'West Wing' had a small speaking role in Bill Murray's 'Stripes'. I think he was one of the soldiers that shot the mortar round off target and took out the platform Sgt. Hulka was standing on. ... Just in case anyone was currious.

Edit: I'm right this confirms it!

Dearest One,

It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I and my Son Mack,intend to establish in your country,though I have not meet with you before but I believe,one has to risk confidence to succeed sometimes in life.

There is this huge amount of Four million U.S dollars($4,000,000.00) which my late Husband kept for us in a security company here in Abidjan, (Cote D'Ivoire) before he was assasinated by his body guard.Now I and my son Mack decided to invest these money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Africa for security and political reasons.We want you to help us claim and retrieve these fund from the security company here and transfer it into your personal account in your country for investment purposes on these areas:

1). Telecommunication
2). the transport industry
3). Five star hotel
If you can be of an assistance to us we will be pleased to offer to you 10% Of the total fund.

I await your soonest response.

Remain Blessed,
Mrs. Mariam Kabila.

I think this exact same thing was on Prime Time Live last week. The reporter baited them on for a while and finally met them in Canada. Turned into a complete fiasco.
