Cool.

A friend of mine in Hawaii who has several patents on 3D microscope technology actually was loaned some moon rocks by NASA a year or so ago. He said 2 guys actually flew out to him in Hawaii to hand-deliver them.

You would think stones so rare would be GIA certified, or at least EGL.

From Mr Dramane Yadi

From: Dramane Yadi - dramane.yadi@katamail.com
From: Mr. Dramane YadiAbidjan Cote D’Ivoire West - Africa
Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Dramane Yadi, I work in the Accounts/ Operations Department of a Prime banks here in Abidjan Cote D’Ivoire. I actually have an urgent and very confidential business proposal for you. I got your contact from Internet and decided to contact you immediately.

On January 10th 1994, An American Oil Consultant/ Contractor with the Societe Ivoirienne De Raffinage (SIR), Mr. George Norman Wesley, found a number of very nice moon rocks and Mars rocks valued at US$8,750,000 (Eight Million, Seven Hundred & Fifty Thousand United States Dollars). On investigation, it was discovered that Mr. Wesley died along with his family in a plane crash. On further investigation, I discovered that Mr. George Norman Wesley did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his Next of Kin proved abortive. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Wesley did not declare any Next of Kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper. These valuable moon rocks are just waiting for us!

According to the Ivoireinne Laws, at the expiration of 7 (seven) years, the moon rocks will revert to the ownership of the Ivoireinne Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. That is what gave way to this deal.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the Next of Kin to Mr. George Norman Wesley so that the fruits of this old man’s labour will not get into the hands of some government officials.
To facilitate the transaction therefore:

1. I would like you to provide me with a viable account details where this fund could be safely transferred into as Next of Kin of the former depositor.

2. We do not anticipate any risk/problem whatsoever, as all the loopholes has been taken care of and there is no risk involved in this deal. All the Computer work for this transaction will be done by me, including your name as the new Beneficiary of this fund.

You will be entitled to 30% of the total amount as your commission after the transaction. If you are interested and capableof handling this deal, please write. On receipt of your response, I shall then provide you with more details on how to go about it.

Please note that this is very confidential. And as I am still a staff with the bank here. I would not like to be known or mentioned as having knowledge of the deal but I will be giving you inside information on what to do.

Awaiting your urgent reply. Do not forget to include your direct telephone and fax numbers for further communication.

Faithfully Yours,

Mr. Dramane Yadi

FReepmail me and I will send details about how to get your own.

So, you're telling us that if we contact you in private you can give us information on how to obtain a moon rock?

Let me guess, this is a bait and switch plan designed to sell us some artifacts you've saved from Uranus..........No Thank You! That plan stinks!

I have several Moonrocks. Picked most of them up out in the desert. I don’t have any authentication, but they were cheap enough and I will let them go for just a small profit.
