From Helena Lambert
Abidjan Cote d'lvoire
ATTN: My Dearest One,

Permit me to inform you my heart desire for a business relationship with
you. I got your contact when I was searching for a foreign partner here
in Abidjan republic of Cote D'Ivoire on my search for honest and
reliable person. I prayed over it and decided to confide in you because
your integrity and educational background. I am helena lambert ( 22
years old ), the only daurther of late Dr Joseph Lambert. My father was
a very wealthy Gold/Diamond dealer in Freetown, the economic capital of
Sierra Leone. My father was poisoned to death by his close business
associates on one of their
outings on a business trip

My mother died when I was 10 years old and since then my father took me
so special. Before the death of my father in a private hospital in
Freetown, he secretly called me by his bed side and told me of a deposit
of 10,5 000,000, united state dollars (TEN MILLION DOLLARS FIVE HUNDRED
THOUSAND DOLLERS) he concealed in a metallic box and deposited with a
security company in SPAIN, not deposited as money but as a family
valuables.he used my name been the duarther as the next of kin when he
deposited the money. He told me that because of envy he was poisoned by
his close associates.

He also advised me to seek for an honest foreigner in a country of my
choice those associates will not hurt me as they have succeeded in
poisoning him, it has been difficult to know who is an honest person to
assist me in this transaction , and for me to continue silent over
looking for assistance while the DUMORAGE is increasing, i decided to
make a try from you, I arrived here (ABIDJAN) in a nearby country on
the 7th of NOVEMBER 2006 since my uncle wants to kill me because of this
certificate of depositsas he have suceeded in
collecting all my father's property left with this money;

They continuously mal-treated me, and have made life very unbearable for
me. The wife serve me a delicious poisoned rice meal , but for the
Devine mercy the daughter secretly whispered to me not to eat the meal;
i wasted the meal to the bin only to find ten dead rat on the bin the
following morning and that made me to run away immediately. And i don't
want to stay long here since i know nobody or much money to pay for
hotel bill.
Dear, I honourably seek your assistance in the following ways:

1.i want you To stand as my late father's foreign partner since my late
father deposited it to be cleared by his foreign partner and no name was
mentioned. 2.To provide an account where we can transfer this money. 3-To
help me arrange for better establishment. 4-To help me come over to your
country to further my education. Please my intention is not to disturb
your Peace,but because l am sincerely in need, And desperately need a
solution before my life is wasted because there is war in this country.
the most important thing is for you to be aiding me as parent who will
directing all my affair es and doings in your country. Lastly ,you will
promise me that you will not betray or deny me if this my money gets
into your hands , bank and country .
Dear, I am ready to offer you 15% of the total money for your help. But
if may
be you are not in better position to help. Please let me know. So that I
look for another helper. I am with the certificate of deposit upon
demand. I am
Looking forward to your kind reply.
Thanks and God bless you and your family.
Sincerely Yours.
Helena Lambert

I don't understand why this question was posted as it's like comparing a
Japanese family car (the Accord) to a Continental "pimp my ride" ... :-)

Hi jawajoe, I saw similar subject in the autoworld honda forum, however
it's phrased as "can 2.4 accord beat VolvoS40 2.4 on Highway?" Smile

Anyway, I don't mind the thread for discussion started by kenlairk on the
subject "can s40 2.4 beat accord 2.4 on highway?" Hopefully someone can
come out with brilliant, interesting and mind-boggling discussion on this
subject. Subject areas to discuss are plenty, for example handling,
comfort, safety, stability, etc, not only how fast Smile

first of all, don;t know why cannot post any particular question
here..this should be an public forum for open discussion right.. .whats
wrong huh..if yes, then just say yes, no then no..but why stopping other
to post le..the best way is to ignore the posting if you are not

Hi Jen888,

my experience after the test drive:

Handling: S40
Comfort: Accord
Safety: No doubt should be S40
Stability: both on par to me..
How fast: really don't know..as speeding both car max to 170KPH
before..and still can go for both..but no ball
liao..heehee....acceleration..s40 feel more ganas..accord smooth smooth je
but still ok..

Nothing personal but I would rather compare the S40 with the Mazda6 2.3L
as the S40 engine was co-developed by Volvo with Mazda & Ford.

Anyway....the Accord is of course more comfortable as the S40 is set for
semi sports ride :-)

Try the Mazda6 and feel the thrill of a Ganas Japanese mean machine :-)
