Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Watch Out for a scam with this content

I received the following e-mail marked very urgent and I nearlly sent money to these fraudsters but thank God after a second thought I didn't. The guys were able to get my full name, my e-mail, my friend's e-mail and full name and his home address. If you receive anything like that it is fraudsters so watch out.

"Did you get my previous message,I sent you an email some hours ago, I had travelled to Nigeria for business purposes, Unfortunately for me all my money was stolen at the hotel where I lodged, I am so confused right now, I dont know what to do or where to go,I didn't bring my phone here, I have access to only emails,Please can you send me $1500 today through Western union so I can clear by debts here and get my flight ticket back home, As soon as I get home I would refund it immediately.Here is the information you need to send the money to me.

Receivers Name: Akayensu Akiola

location/Address: 40 simisola Street
Lagos , Nigeria ,23401

Use this as the text question and answer:
Text question:who is the receiver?
Text answer: David

As soon as you send the money please scan and send me a copy of the western union receipt or you just send me the mtcn number and the senders full information used when sending the money. I would be waiting.
thank you.
