I just got a private message here at Catsailor from..."the son of a wealthy Nigerian banker..." You know how the rest of it reads.

Was I the only one who got spammed or did he crack the entire user list? How do we block him? Thanks Rick/Mary.

Here's the entire load of crap:

From:Nethan Konan.
Abidjan , Ivory Coast .
West Africa.

APPEAL FOR URGENT BUSINESS ASSISTANCE.
Dearest One,

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you. I am quite aware that my message will come to you as a surprise because it is indeed very strange for someone you have not met before to contact you in this regard.



I am Nethan Konan the only son of late Chief and Mrs. Johnson Konan. 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.


My mother died when I was still a baby and since then my father took me so special. Before the death of my father in a private hospital here in Abidjan he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of (nine million, five hundred thousand United State Dollars).USD ($9,500,000.00) left in bank here in Abidjan,and he used my name as his only son for the next of Kin in depositing of the funds.


He further explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, that I should seek a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate or hotel management. Dear, I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways:
(1) To help me rieve the fund in bank.


(2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am only 16years.
(3) To help me come over to your country to further my education and also to secure a resident permit in your country.

Moreover dear one, I am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as in showing appreciation towards your efforts and to cover any expense you incur in getting this transaction achieved. Please indicate your willingness to assist me as I believe

that this transaction would be concluded within seven (7) days you signify your interest to assist Anticipating hearing from you urgently.

Please do reply me back through my private email adress via ( konan19kn@gmail.com)

Thanks and God bless.

Yours Sincerely,

Nethan Konan .

Get the header info, forward the message and paste the header info into it.

Forward the message to the spammers email service. In this case it was gmail. They will delete the account.

It may not be a big deal but it will slow the spammers down.

Strange you would get it PM. I don't hear anyone else talking about it, nor have I even received any in PM.
We keep the site pretty secure. Had a vandal a few years ago, but made some major changes and been clean since.
Keep me up do date on this, Timbo

That's what I thought was strange too, the PM part. And it shows he registered today, under number of posts it says 0.

Well, it must be legit, so as soon as I can get him into our country, I'll ask him...Man, I can't wait to get my hands on 15% of his money, I mean his Dad's money...Maybe I can get that custom Farrier 36 I've had my eye on!

Hey, I got a phone call the other day saying I had won $3.5M plus a new Mercedes, as third prize in a national raffle which I had been anonomously entered into. They promised I would receive the check and car keys within two business days after I paid the brokerage fees, to Liberty Enterprises in Fort Lauderdale.

Do you know these guys Timbo?

Why yes I do, you see it was I who entered you into that raffle, so after you send them your money, you have to split the $3.5M with me.

I get to use the Mercedes on odd weekends too...right?

I should have told the caller that I really don't like Mercedes, so they could keep the car to cover the brokerage fees, and just send me the check.

But if it means that much to you, I'll pay their fees so you can use the car.

Tell you what, I'll sign the $3.5M check over to you if you'll send me your $1.75M first.
