Miss Lyna Loes,
DEAREST ONE, ASSIST ME PLEASE
"I am miss Lyna Loes.the only Daughter Of Mr and Mrs Usman Loes. from Ivory Coast.", "to help me for us to retrieve this fund and transfer it to your account in your country or any safer place as you will be the beneficiary and recipient of the fund"

Have you received an email from "Miss Lyna Loes", who says

"I am miss Lyna Loes.the only Daughter Of Mr and Mrs Usman Loes. from Ivory Coast. I am an Orphan being that I lost my Parents.My Father was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death.He was assassinated by the rebels following the political uprising. Before his death he made a deposit of Eight Million USA Dollars ($8,000,000.00) in the Bank Here in Cote d'Ivoire."?

And what follows is a convoluted sob story of one misery after another, along with a healthy dose of gibberish, spelling errors, terrible gram, syntax and punctuation, not exactly befitting an extremely wealthy person. And now, poor bereaved "Miss Lyna Loes", needs YOUR help:

"to help me for us to retrieve this fund and transfer it to your account in your country or any safer place as you will be the beneficiary and recipient of the fund".

Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think?

Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.
