Please if you are willing to assist me and my only Daughter Linda Zuru, Telephone REMOVED Thanks and best regards . Madam Sonia Zuru
I've never priced a cocoa processing machine, but something tells me over $6 million is a little excessive. I'm also kinda disappointed. $6.5 million is pocket change compared to the scams I used to receive. I know the economy is tough right now, but it's not like these scammers are actually offering real money. Add a few more zeros to that and you might perk my interest.
