  1. Require that he sign a promissory note (for the price of the book) notorized by an attorney from a reputable law firm that can be reached for varification. And include re-payment terms or, change your email address.

  2. Hi Vald
    Just block this guy. Surprised you haven’t done it yet.

  3. heh, unfortunately in countries like ethiopia, i highly doubt that anyone could be held legally responsible for signing pretty much anything. this guy lives in a village that doesn’t even have electricity… there wont be any attorneys running around there trying to round him up!


  4. well, he’s actually sent me 3 emails so far. the two asking for money that i posted here, and one wishing me a merry christmas. i responded to the christmas one wishing him a merry christmas too.


  5. yeah, i’m sure i’ll block him eventually. in a way, i’m actually kind of interested in hearing what he has to say though…

  6. Let me save you the time and trouble.

    “Please if you are my friend, send me money or send me stuff that I can sell for money. thank you rich american who I want to feel guilty for me living a poor life and you live a rich life. I just want to better myself through education (or by selling the stuff that you think will help me). Thank you rich american friend.”
