It’s not every day you get an appeal for urgent business assistance from a princess, and given that the below mail has every sign of being a 419 mail, I probably haven’t got one yet. But I like the tone in this mail, even though the scammer posing as princess Kamara has quite a lot to learn about how to use capital letters when writing in English. But it’s nice to have a profile that has been prayed over.
