$12,800,000.00 dollar lead from Active Rain, Thank You!!

Some folks on Active Rain get a steady flow of clients from their blogging, mine are less frequent but when they pay off, they really pay off.

Today I glanced at my phone and noticed that I had a “potential lead” email from Active Rain, my first thought was an opportunity to help someone with a question they had on how something works in the rain, but then I clicked on the email and smiled for a different reason.

It turns out that Beatrice Coulibaly is looking to do some major investing in our part of the country and needs my help.

Though she is an atrocious speller, I am willing to find some fine properties to sell her, maybe some of my rentals will fill her needs.

But without getting too greedy, maybe I should offer some of this bounty to my AR friends.

If any of you would like to help them with a few properties, let me know, something tells me that Beatrice has a whole room full of friends who are looking for American agents to help them invest.  ;)

Bob - I think when you close that deal with Beatrice, we should have a party here on ActiveRain.  I'm pretty sure I've heard from Beatrice as well!

Couldn't help but notice one of your previous posts from the "atrocious speller" as you said! I hope for your sake I'm wrong, but this sure looks like one of those scam emails that came in to many agents at one time and maybe still.

Haha, I have gotten emails like that in the past, but they never send the darn check.  I get myself all ready for retirement, but the money never comes, haha.

You know someone is falling for this if they keep trying.  Honestly, it's so ridiculous it's hard to imagine the person who would fall for it.

Bob Crane - when it rains, it pours. However, sometimes the drops are not water drops - so be careful is what I can say!

(Of course, I love $12.8M lead - lot more than I have ever done.....)

Should I say, Good Luck?

Bob, ask her for proof of funds!  :-). Sou ds like she needs your help in "receive this funds" whatever that means.  Makes you wonder what these people are really up to, with this kind of spelling and grammar, everyone should recognize this as a scam.
