Konan "The Scamarian" writes to me about his dead parents, $16M and the fact that he wants me to help him invest this non existent money.
I always find it a little off putting, when sounding out potential "business opportunities", to learn that a person involved with the venture has been "poisoned to death" by his colleagues.
It rather taints the proposal, as far as I am concerned.
From Steve Konan
Of The University

I know that my message will come to you as a surprise since I don’t know you in person or met with you before, but I am of the believe that you would be obliged to come to my assistance after hearing about my situation.
I was, until recently, a Medical student of the University of Abidjan, Ivory Coast West Africa.
I am the only Son of late Mr Frederick Drogba Konan. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast. He was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business last year.
When my mother died on the October 1987, my father took me so special because I am motherless. Before the death of my father last year, in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has a sum of US$ 16,500,000 left in account in a bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name for the next of kin in deposit of the fund. He also explained to me that it is because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates.

2)You will serve as the guardian of this funds since I am a Boy of 20 years.
