SCAM ALERT!
Dear genuine Vanguard Online Community Members. I wish to bring to your notice that our revered community has been compromised by some unscrupulous individuals have decided to use this forum as a pad to perpetuate SCAM. I have one of such letters written to me to foster a relationship that I know will lead to disaster. This mail is targeted at successful men of 40 and above. (I am sure there must be one for women too)The first mail always reads:

''risa donatus has added you as a friend on Vanguard Online Community

Am Risa a lovely girl,and i drop at your profile,i love what i saw Please contact me direct to my email address for me to send my picture and further communications.
risa_41baby@yahoo.com

then a follow up:
Dearest,
How was your night over there in your country and the day,i believe you had a nice night and that the altmosphere over there in your country is very nice today? Mine was a little bit warm over here in Dakar Senegal .

My name is Risa Donatus i am (24yrs) but age ,distance, or colour doesn't matter in a real relationship,so i am comfortable with your age,I am from Cote d' Ivoire in West Africa ,5.4ft tall, fair in complexion, single,(never married ) and presently i am residing here in Dakar as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago.

My late father DR WILLIAMS DONATUS was the managing director of COCOA EXPORTING INDUSTRIES (Ltd) in ABIDJAN (the capital city of COTE D'IVOIRE ,my country) before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and my father in cold blood.
It was only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a near by country SENEGAL where i am leaving now as a refugee under a Revrend father's care and i am using his computer to send these message to you.
I would like to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes,your hobbies and what you are doing presently.I will tell you more about myself in my next mail.Attached here is my picture.
Hoping to hear from you soonest
Yours forever
Risa

These letters came through our community wit the photo of a beautiful girl attached.. Please beware of such and similar letters as I am sure the vanguard online community will not be to blame if you become a victim of such shallowfraud.

We are actually in Bamako and every single source (over 15 inlcuding Kalana, Atlas, etc has proven to be a scam with the exception of Mahara Gold. They have aggreed to deal with the attorney we hired and they have showed product. I guess time will tell but they might, maybe, could be real. I will keep Vanguard in the loop.

MAY WE BE WISE ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND WHEN A CONMAN KNOCKS ON OUR DOORS!
Thanks for your observation and timely warning, these 419ers think they can fool anybody. I've received series of such nonsense from scammers, its only a stupid man/woman that can fll a victim of such cheap tricks.
Thank you so much for this mail. i got a similar mail recently and was shocked that we could also receive such yahoo yahoo mail on a forum like this (not vangaurd's).

Awa pipol se no bi mai poshon but it's only when we are alerted like this that it will never be awa poshon bikos wen gai man fol, mugu go chop.

Not awa poshon. Thanks.
thanks 4 this. the same old stories by some foolish nigerians. spoiling our name all over the world. one day we will have another nuhu ribado to deal with them
I AM PURRO CARLOS,

I just want to talk on this matter and want to plead to any stupid person that dont have a job to do going on and condeming great companies that is non worldwide as a scam company why

this company MAHARA GOLD COMPANY SARL. is a respected and honest company i have ever seen and is the only Gold surcing company that has a good reputation in there act and transacting good and real business, please contact MAHARA GOLD COMPANY SARL for ur confidence business.
thank you
I got these kind of mails often from this same syndicate,the same story of losing her parents and all the nonsense,but i wonder why some people could descend so low in sending scam mails to people on a reputable paper like vanguard newspaper.The mails are purportedly always from these war ravaged countries in Africa,people should beware,it is sheer 419 thing.
i dnt know if the stigma of nigeria being generally tagged as a fraudster country will ever go away.
it's more like a leech now, everyone tagged wit it.
419 nation, naija!
shame!
Whoever is sending this mails must, to some extent, gullible. It's always the same pattern; lives in a refugee camp, late father is rich, has some money left behind, loves you and is ready to trust you with the late father's money, send your bank details etc. Always the same pattern. In fact, I think if anybody gets scammed then he/she is either a fool or is looking for cheap money.
