  1. Hi guys, I don't post very often but I got this email the other day & wanted to give you guys a heads up...Watch Your Backs!!!!

    this is his original email-
    Dear Sir?Madam,

    Am Mr Kaley the leader of HEAVEN ON EARTH BAND in
    Accra Ghana west Africa.I saw your studios contact
    address on the internet whiles searching for a
    studio to go into contract with to record our
    albulms.I saw your studio as the best whiles I
    searched through most studios.I would like to visit
    your studio and inspect the equipment in order to be
    must sure about the recording.Please let me know the
    prices you charge per day

    Please contact me very early since we wantto make
    the contract very early.

    Your's Sicerely,

    Mr Kaley.


    I thought this to be suspect but I emailed him a generic response of our daily rates & inquired further about his project. No harm, right?

    I then received this email from him-
    Thank you very much for your kind email.I believe your prices are affordable to us and would to fly in and make a contract for two years to record.I would like to come with my assistant .We would like to come this febaury so let me know if you will have time so we can come for the recordings.
    Willing to hear from you soon.
    Your's sincerely,
    Mr Kaley


    both of these emails had "Mr. Kaley" in the signature, but had
    "raymond cole" in the email addy.

    I just thought about it & did a Gooogle search on "raymond cole" & found that this name is one of the primary names in the Nigerian schemes that have been circulating thru the net for years now. Look here for more info on his name http://mugubaiting.nm.ru/raymond.html

    I guess they have begun to personalize the scams now far beyond the "I am the president with 50,000,000 blah, blah, blah..."

    Just watch out guys.


    peace!

    Very interesting, I wonder where the scam is. This week past, I could have helped someone bring out $Ms from Africa and I won a dutch lottery. The boys haven't given up.

    So have you gotten the email yet from a foreign country about someone and his family having died with the same last name as yourself? and they have millions of dollars that if you don't contact them, will go back to the corporation? I read it and laughed.

    I haven't got that one but it sounds pretty amusing. Here is a great website where the guy actually responds to some of these scams to see where they lead. He includes an email trail so you can see what happens, really entertaining stuff. Enjoy..... http://mugubaiting.nm.ru/

    :cool:
