If she is so god fearing then tell her she will go to hell if she continues her current trend of trying to pick up strangers over the net :p

Quite surprised that there are still refugee camps 6 years after the Ivory Coast civil war ended....

dude,its a scam. I've seen this exact email in another thread. When I saw the name "Dr Paul Jones" I knew it :D

I'll bet if you respond to this mail, she'll say stuff like "My father was killed and I want to come to your country to further my education, can you help me with money" or "I have inherited money after my father was killed, can you give me banking details to hold it for me until I get to your country"

Haha are those real?

Mrs Marie Jeanne Keita, formerly of Saudi Arabia, now in Cote D'Ivoire, is dying of cancer. She wants me to assist her in getting her late husband's fortune, which is secured in a "matalic" box at a security company, out of Africa and use it to fund orphanages and such. She also wants me to take care of and raise her son. New York ad exec, Pete Moss has no time for Mrs. Keita's crap. unless of course, she can help him solve some problems of his own, which she does. Adult movie producer, Dick Wadd and his sales manager, Hugh Jass, eventually get in on the act and when Mr. Moss is brutally murdered by British hit-men, Mike Rotch steps in, but only to try to steer him back to Mr. Wadd.

Okay. I'm working on a hilarious response for dear miss Joy. And I'm going to send her a very legitimate picture of myself of coarse.
