The Great Solomon Mupesa of Dubai

Have you ever felt so messed-up that you actually found time read through one of those scam emails?

Today morning, not only did I read through an email from a certain Mrs.Hilda Mupesa, wife of late Ndoga Mupesa of Chiweshe ward in Muzarabani, Mashonaland, but I googled for Mashonaland(Hell it exists!) and Hilda Mupesa as well. That is how I ended up at Africanscam.co.uk. No references to Hilda Mupesha to my disappointment, but her son was definitely within reach according to Craig McAteer – and here is the scoop, in Dubai of all places.

On 20th April 2003, Under the false name, Steve Arthur Thomson, Craig interacted with this Mupesa guy through emails (a must read), promised him the money (and an expensive watch) and even managed to meet him here in Dubai. Refer to the link for photos and details.

Although the Dubai Police was alerted, I presume nothing came of it and as far as I know the Mupesa guy is still at large from the email that I received today. Or perhaps this is a gang using the same method to fool people – not a well laid plan though.

So here is the guy. The Great Solomon Mupesa. If you happen to meet him somewhere in Dubai, you know what he is upto.
Btw isn't that the Dubai Creek in the background?

This is becoming familiar; eve now you started to hear Arabic Names, with actual contact numbers with actual names and some of them are very well known names. What I can’t understand is how people can believe or trust these things! im really shocked about that. and it’s so obvious that Solomon or Moses or whoever is not someone you can easily trust. anyway, excellent Blog, I really like it.

These are real people? I thought these were bots?

Just wishing I could filter these pesky emails from my inbox.

Small world - Craig McAteer is a mate of ours, he'll be coming out to Dubai again in a couple of weeks to help Team Saluki at the UAE Desert Challenge. See www.teamsaluki.com - he's there. I'll make sure he knows that his fame has spread!

Cheers
