Spam scam - This spammer simply wants your account details to take your money. But incase you're tempted anyway by their story, here's my take on why it'd be a bad idea even if they did put money into your account like they claim....

It seems to suggest that money will go into your account. But, I'm sure, when you take on someone elses account business, you inccur their DEBTS aswell. So the plan may be for you to be setup a recpient who quickly transfers the money to their account. Only later, when they;re long gone, will your account be found to be responsible for the debt of the original account. (Bad explanation, but so long as u know it's NOT a good thing ;)

This is the one I got. The membername WAS mariam22, but may change, and so will the story itself, undoubtedly.
