Spam is evolving!

Hello My Dearest,

 I am writing this mail with tears and sorrow, hoping that my situation will touch your heart for you to come to my rescue.  Firstly I am emailing you from the office of the Reverend Father Denis Mongolo in Saint Mary Catholic Church, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. My name is Joy Kipkalya Kones, 23 years old originated from Nairobi-Kenya, East Africa, Female, tall, slim, and a very good looking girl that loves travelling and dancing, a student, that loves to be loved, I want you to also understand that your Age, distance, Religions does not matter to me, kindly permit me to contact you through this medium, I am compelled to contact you via this medium for obvious reasons which you will understand when we discuss details of my proposition.


My father was the former Kenya road Minister. My Father and Assistaant Minister of Home Affairs Lorna Laboso had been on board the Cessna 210, which was headed to Kericho and crashed in a remote area called Kajong'a, in western Kenya . The plane crashed on the Tuesday 10th, June, 2008.


You can read more about the crash through the belowsite:


After the burial of my father, my step-mother has threatened to kill me because of the money my father deposited in one of the banks in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in my name as the next of kin before his dead which amount is ($9.4 USD) Million United State Dollars. I travelled down to Burkina Faso to withdraw the money so that I can start a better life and take care of myself.


On my arrival, the Branch manager of the Bank whom I met in person told me that my father's instruction to the bank was the money will be release to me only when I am married or I should present a trustee who will help me and invest the money overseas. I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray the trust I have on you. But rather take me as your own daughter or your Sister. Though you may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, well, I will say that my mind convinced me that you are the true person to help me stand as my trustee since i have not married.


More so, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate in your country because my Step-Mother has threatened to assassinate me. Also be informed that I have confirmed from the bank in Burkina Faso that the money is still unclaimed. You will also help me to a place were the money will be establish a more profitable business venture in your Country. Moreover, you will also help me by recommending a nice University in your country so that I will complete my studies.


It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment. As soon as I receive your interest in helping me, I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely. Please do keep this only to your self. I beg you not to disclose it to anybody until the money transferred into your bank account and then I will come over to your country. Meanwhile as i am talking to you, my step-mother don't know i am here in BURKINA FASO .


I am waiting to hear from you soonest,

Yours Sincerely,

Miss.Joy Kipkalya Kones.

#140conf | Sat 19th June 2010 | 0830-1230hrs | NaiLab, 4th Floor, Bishop Magua Centre | Ngong RD, Nairobi

The real-time internet has and will continue to cause disruptive shifts in our lifestyles. Not only is it affecting how business is being conducted, it has also greatly impacted day to day processes and communication. Recent disaster reporting and resultant humanitarian missions have been centred along the real-time internet as in the case of the Haiti and Chile earthquakes and the post election crises in Kenya.The real-time web has exponentially democratised information production and consumption. During the Iranian election crises, the world was informed of the happenings in Iran and vice-versa despite an information blackout imposed by the ruling elite. The web is inherently social, and the real-time web connects like minded people in an instant. The Obama campaign was pretty much influences and energised by the real-time web. At this #140conf meetup we'll have some of Kenya's leading faces on the real-time web enlightening us and exchanging ideas on how we can add value to our country via the real-time web. The theme for this meetup is 'Social Causes on The Real Time Web' and will feature leading social media gurus in the .ke scene such as Juliana Rotich (@afromusing), Paula Kahumbu (@paulakahumbu), Marvin Tumbo (@marvintumbo) and Victor Ngeny (@ngeny). It'll definitely be a great networking and idea sharing forum

Online Registration -

Regards, Phares
