Hi,Good morning
Hi,Good morning,

Please read this mail attentively. A France Based investor from your country who was a business tycoon,a cocoa Merchant and a contractor with Ivory Coast Government who died in a plane crash on Tuesday August 16, 2005 in Venezuela has come to the limelight in our bank because since 2005 that he died his portfolio and investment of 9.8 Million Pounds has not been touch because no name next-of-kin was found in his bio-data form, If you are familiar with Investment Banking affairs,those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity with some levels of detachment from conventional processes - now this investment has generated a huge accrued interest to the amount of 1.3 Million British Pounds after this end of the year general auditing because he was operating a pounds account. The bank management has therefore authorized me as the Funds Manager/Managing Director of the Investment Banking Division of this Bank - Standard Chartered Bank (www.standardchartered.com)to locate any living relative of this investor to apply for an inheritance claim so that the accrued interest can be paid to the family of the late Depositor which is inline with the banking rules, ethics and operatives. This is where your name came in and this mail is at your door step.

Pls contact me immediately so that I can furnish you with the detail. Mind you, I do not care whether you are truly related to this investor or not but for the fact that you know nothing about this money before and I am the one that comes to you - we are sharing this money 50/50. and it didn't end there, the bank will only as of this moment based on your request release the accrued interest of 1.3 Million British Pounds to you as the next-of-kin which simply means the investment will still remain and every year you will be collecting the interest on the investment which we will be sharing 50/50 subsequently, I will see to it that this arrangement work-out perfectly cos it is risk free as I have taken care all necessary steps before contacting you. Pls if for any reason you are skeptical or see or consider this classified information contained in this mail to be scam, spam. junk or hoax simply delete it and forget I ever contacted you because this is a God given opportunity but if you understand my point in this mail and ready to work with me to actualize this project to claim this God blessing, send to me in your return mail your most direct telephone number.
Note ;my email ( mrdidierkone1@yahoo.com )
Remain Bless,

Didier Kone.

Nope, I didn't get one....If there was a post on the boards, we can certainly delete that, but I have no idea how to stop them from PM's?? At least we know that was a spam message and to just ignore it.

I was hoping the offending person would at least be warned.

On the top right of the private message is an icon to report a spam private message.

Use that and the admin. will see it and delete the offenders access to the site.

Once someone actually registers for the site they can send private messages. Can't stop that unless we ban/delete their account.
