Re: hello im new here....

this is not a begging forum. Maybe they have to stay there until you earn enough to sponsor them?

Re: hello im new here....

Hey my name is Prince <insert BS name>

I'm from <insert poor african state here> and I'm looking to put some money into a swiss bank account for a few weeks. Are you able to help me?

If you send me <insert stupid amount here> I'll double your money, and I'll be forever in your debt.

Please feel free to send me an e-mail as much as you like and I'll keep you updated.

Meanwhile I'll be counting my piles of money other gullable folk have sent me.....

Re: hello im new here....

I can confirm the OP is posting from an apparent consumer IP address in this country but the answer's still the same - get the job, sponsor your siblings yourself.

And I don't think 400 would cover it per month.

Re: hello im new here....

Private Eye magazine in UK used to have personal columns full of adverts of people asking for money to laze on the beach in Antigua and similar.

As thes cost money to insert , you do wonder : they must have had some success...

Brilliant!

I've heard several really good stories about people scamming the scammers back.

400 Swiss a month takes you a long way in the Phils...

Re: hello im new here....

Well, I might be able to help. But only CHF 350. Send me your bank account details, full name, address and specimen signature and I'll see what I can do
