A ma grande surprise la personnem'a adresséune demande d'aide. Avant de lui répondre j'ai essayé de faire la recherche sur son profil mais rien n'a été trouvé.Mais j'ai trouvé lemême message sur gloogle écrit depuisle 21 vfevrier 2013
Jéappelle mes consoeurs membres du réseau de faire attention.
Voici en annexe le message qu'il m'a envoyé avec une photo

Dear one, Please be honest with me I am orphan ?

I am writing at this hour because of my status as a refugee in Dakar Senegal And I am an orphanage child , as a result of the assassination of my parents by rebel group which left me with no one except me that survived by the help of Red cross team that brought me to Senegal

And my father was chairman managing director of Larry & Sons Industrial Company Ltd in the capital of my Country Rwanda Central Africa, before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed he with my mother in cold blood

He deposited 4.5 million us dollars in bank .and I have written to the bank to claim the money as the next of kin because of my deplorable condition in Senegal and the bank replied that due to my refugee status that I am not qualified to claim the money that I have to look for a reliable foreign partner to claim the funds by signing a check of the total sum in your names for me that is the only condition the bank gave me.

And now I want to know if you are honest and reliable because if I lose this money I will suffer all my life on earth and I will not finish my education any so be honest to me if you will betray me please tell me ,and I want you to treat this with the absolute confidence
and hold it to yourself without somebody knowing for my safety.
If you are able and honest to help me please reply back so that I will
give you the bank information for immediate contact.

My name is Faith John and my father's name Dr Larry John so let know if I will give you the email ids of the bank's transfer department and the phone numbers,
And send me these your following information

Your Full Name............................

Denouncing an act of piracy on our network

Dear all,

I’ve received an email from someone who has seen my World Pulse profile and they asked me to write them to that address, which I did.

To my great surprise, this person requested for my help.
Before answering, I tried to do a search on their profile but I couldn’t find anything.
I however, found the very same message on Google, written on February, 21st 2011.

I call on my sisters of this network to pay attention.
Hereby the message they sent me, along with a picture.
