You've Got to Be Kidding Me Man...

Some Jackass contact me on the Yahoo IM with this message:
yaandni : How are you doing pls
activemode : I'm doing just fine... Are you alright?
yaandni : Yes
yaandni : Am Prince Adama Andni of the Northern Part of Ghana
yaandni : and u?
activemode : I'm just a Programmer.
yaandni : Location pls
activemode : Florida
yaandni : Do you have access to email pls
activemode : why?
yaandni : My dad was the late king (YAA-NAA-ANDNI)

At this point, I stoped and blocked the sender. 
For one thing, this person types very good english for someone from Ghana.  They also seem to have a habit of contacting common people, that are not of Royal Blood like myself.  Also, why is my location important, if your sending a message to me announcing your Royal Status?  And finally, why would you have to type out a pronunciation of the name of your father? 
Notice when they typed:
yaandni: and u?
yaandni: Location pls
They use an abbreviation for - you and please - This is un-becoming of a person of Royal Status.  They would have typed out the whole word.
This is obviously a scam. 
The person that sent it, is probably some Broke Bald Guy with no friends, living in his mothers basement in Ohio.  Otherwise, it could also be a Lonely Old Woman looking for a way to suppliment her income or pay for the young men that she buys sex from.
