I would want to invest it in your country and also to complete my education under your care which i stopped because of the crisis. I want you to stand as my father's business partner in claiming the fund from the bank as i am still under age to claim the money from the bank before it is too late. I am ready to compasate you with 10% of the total sum if only you will assist me to transfer the fund from the bank to your account and assist me also in investing the money in any lucrative business and 5% is set aside for any expences that will arise during the transaction. I will give you more details and forward all vital information as soon as I hear your positive respond,this is my private e-mail address ( Best Regards. Vicky

ChinesePod seems to be a nice place to spam around, and CPod seems to do nothing against it, or?

What do you think - should CPod fight back and automatically purge such stuff?
