Mr Adrie Kone (scam alert)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is about as short as a “mystery scam” message can get. “Mr Adrie Kone” (or is it “Adrien Kone”?) says there is $5 million dollars waiting for you. Alas, if you reply, you’ll find he’s just another scammer trying to pick your pocket — and he figures a short message is just as good a way to hook you as a long one.
