My Future Business Arrangement with Mrs. Charles Jewel Taylor of Liberia

Dear American Digest,

We have also been recieving emails from the Taylor family asking assistance in relocating their money. I was questioning how they recieved my email address and personal information. Please contact me if you have any more information as to the legality of their propositions or what needs to be done.

Thank you very much,
Ellen Calentine

Dear American Digest,

I have been receiving email from John Richardson Garba asking for transfer of money as well. Please post any information about the validity and legality of this letter. Thank you.

And curiously, I have checked his name on the internet. He has been numerously and repeatedly indicated for a scam. How did these letters became a scam and how will they affect us if we replied to their mail? Are they all criminals?

Thank you again.

Dear American Digest,

I received an e-mail today from Jewel Taylor
requesting assistance to transfer her money
into my account....she suggested she would
assist in opening a BodyTalk Clinic in the USA.
(BodyTalk is a holistic method of healing which
I currently practice). How she got my name and
e-mail address I do not know.

Thank you.

THIS IS A SCAM. I repeat...SCAM. I found this site because I received this specific letter today in my email as well. You probably know this already, but for those who dont,

It is a simple extension of what is popularly referred to as the 419 or Nigerian Email Scam. You send them negligable amounts of money in hopes of getting a huge sum at the end...

Only they always need more and more small amounts (small = 1K-20K, nothing compared to the millions you are always promised), to bribe officials, get documents, etc. It never ends until you wake up poor realizing FINALLY that you've been scammed.

More details at these websites (sorry I didn't see an option to edit as html so they're not linked, just copy & paste):


Do NOT give these people any money or personal information. Seriously, as a couple comments say above, why the heck would Jewel Taylor contact lil' ol' you anyway...EXACTLY.
