sincere business .

Abubakar. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan , the
economic capital of Ivory coast, my father was poisoned to death by his
business associates on one of their outings on a business trip .

special. Before the death of my father on october 2006 in a private
hospital here in Abidjan he secretly called me on his bed side and told me
that he has the sum of Ten million,five hundred thousand United State
Dollars. USD ($10,500,000.00) left in fixed / suspense account in one of
the prime bank here in Abidjan ,that he used my name as his only
daughter for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund. He
also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was
poisoned by his business ssociates.

where i will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as
real estate management or hotel management .

transferred to .

compensation for your effort/ input after the successful transfer of this
fund into your nominated account overseas and 3% for any future expenses
that will be made during the transaction.

I get those kind of spam all the time(but not from Winamp Forums), and they always change the story. Last time I inherited some kind of fortune and they needed my info.

Silly spammers.

Red VS Blue rocks.

There are some videos on YouTube of another series that uses the splinter cell multiplayer. It's funny, but not even close to red vs blue.
