I got the email below this morning. I feel sorry for Mrs.Kadi BALLA, and I feel sure she’ll reward me for helping transfer $7,500,000.00 USD here. Hell, even ten percent would be $7,500.00. I could buy a used car. Must have a lot of money there in West African. I want some.

Why does she look like a man? Why did she pick you, I’m jealous?
Thanks for the comment, J. But I think you’ll get one, everybody does. It’s the Nigerian way. Or is that West African?
I think the picture was of her brother Tony.
dulum diyor milletin iştahı kabarsın sonra para çok akıl gidiyor iyi dolandırıcı afrikanın hepsini satsan bukadar para çıkarmı
Thanks for the comment and for viewing my post. It was written to be humor and to get a laugh.
But real scam is out there in all countries. Nigeria is just the cliche you need for comedy. And that email I received is real, Nigerian or not.
I do not speak or write Turkish. Translation sites on line give your text in English as, more or less:
‘Did you mean: dulum diyor milletin iştahı kabarmış sonra para çok akıl gidiyor iyi dolandırıcı afrikanın hepsini satsan bukadar para çıkarmı’
“Widow says the nation’s appetite, then the money goes to mind”
Which does not sound like a valid translation.
But thanks again Mr Altun. As we say about attempting humor, “Comedy is difficult, Dying is easy”. That is especially true these quarantine times. Stay safe.
