I have gotten numerous emails from Barrister Bill Kennedy who WILL NOT leave me alone saying that I have been left $31 million. He is from the UK but is Nigerian. Unfortunately he has gotten me for some cash and I did finally turn him in. This started back in Sept in '09

Posted by: Judy | Apr 29, 2010 9:52:00 AM

I have all of Kennedy's emails back and forth to me and I also have one of his cohert's Micheal Harry who claims to be a diplomat (yeah right). Do not ever give any $$ to either of these two idiots because they are nothing but liars and scumbags. I am waiting for the FBI to contact me for help again.

I am currently in the midst of dealing with this scam and would really appreciate it if anyone who has been contacted by Bill Kennedy or Michael Harry to contact me as soon as possible as we are building a dossier to aid Interpol in the capture of these two. The more substance behind this dossier the bigger the priority. Our client has lost over $50,000 so far and was supposed to wire a further $10,000 this week. Even if you have not lost money to either of these people, we would still like to hear from you. Please note we will not be requesting any funds from anyone and though we usually make a small charge for our services we have not made any charges to our client.

Thanks Mavis
