Bad Ideas: Using Gbagbo for email fraud

I’ve seen some bad email pitches before, but this has to be one of the worst that I have seen.

I’m not quite sure how anyone can think that using the name of Gbagbo to perpetrate fraud would work. Am I really supposed to trust the son of an egoistic dictator responsible for all sorts of violent and criminal acts? Am I supposed to want to help him and his son?

Here is the message I received today:
