WARNING: Con-man impersonates Ace Cool in London

Con-man impersonates Ace Cool in London

We noticed and was intrigued by the story below which relates to a conman using big wave surfer Alec "Ace Cool" Cooke as a front for a scam. It makes a change from receiving emails from Nigerian "Generals" and Ghanain "Ministers" asking for help retrieving $25m from a US bank account! This one is a lot less ambitious and is targeting a most unlikely group (surfers) using a most unlikely surfer. Ace's most notable acheivement was paddling into a reputed 35footer at Outside Log cabins in 1985

Surfers Village: BE WARNED - Ace Cool (Alec Cooke) is alive and well on the North Shore this very day and is nowhere near London UK. This is confirmed to Surfersvillage today by reliable North Shore sources.

Below is the email message circulationg;-
