Nothing to worry about with him; he was just helping me with some trail work. We were building some rock steps. As you can see he isn't very good at picking out the flat ones, but he never tires of carrying them. :wink:

left in the bank. The total fund is Two Million Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars. (USD 2, 500,000.00). The money is still in the bank
and l am with all the documents.

Please I need your assistance in the following ways:

country.
2.To help me to come over to your country to continue with my education.

investment.

If you can help me with these three things, I am promising you 15% of the
total money as soon as you receive the money in any account of your
choice.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly valued.please reply urgent

This one is missing two crucial elements:

1- The country she is in is not mentioned. It needs to be a dodgy country for the whole thing to make sense.

2- Sir Given Edward did not die under mysterious circumstances/get assassinated by his nefarious enemies who are trying to cheat the daughter out of her inheritance.

At least they got most of the spelling right in this one. Usually, people from Nigeria aren't so well educated :lol:

Stop disrespecting Sir Given Edward's memory, you Bakersfield hick!

He ensured his daughter Isabella got a proper education from a strict Headmistress, OK? I know a thing or two about it, but providing a full account of such events would turn Site Feedback into a different kind of Forum.

That video mentions chicken heads, so I assume it is about climbing. Else I don't really understand it.

This guy has been regularly posting thinly disguised spam: http://www.summitpost.org/users/kelvinsmar/102655

eg. his final post at: loss-of-annapurna-circuit-t52344-30.html

I'm guessing he's a Nepal trekking agent.
