How was your day?
I am a 23 year old lady who wants to love and be loved. I have grown to understand that the road to a successful relationship is bumpy but with
honesty, love and dedication to the one I call mine,the journey will not be hectick. I seek a long term relationship with a family oriented person with the intentions of establishing a family where children will grow to be happy in the future.
My name is Miss
Favour Jones from ivory coast in west Africa and presently I'm residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar as a result of the civil war going on in my country..My late father Dr Paul Jones was the personal adviser to the former head of state before the rebels attacked my house one early morning killing my mother and my father.It was only me that is alive now and i managed to make our way to near by country Senegal where i leaving now, i know it will sound strange to you but it is the whole truth and nothing but the truth and i am promising you that if only i can trust you,you will never regret knowing me.I want you to take me as one of your friends or sisters,and to take care of my affairs and inheritance.I am sorry to tell you that since the death of my parents i have seen hell.
In this camp we are only allowed to go out only on
Mondays and Fridays of the weeks.Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.I don't have any relatives now whom i can go to his or her house, all of my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Rev Dickson David who is the pastor of the (Christ The King Church) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the women's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women.
The Pastors Tel number is (+221-768-662-408) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with (Miss Favour Jones ) he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any right or
privilledge to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country, i want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.Please listen to this,i have my late father's statement of account and death certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank in Europe which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $7.9M(seven million nine hundred thousand u.s dollars)
So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.I kept this secret to people in the camp here
the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.
So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it.Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking.what i need from you is, for you to see that the money is transferred to a good account and also to make arrangement on how i will come over and stay with you and continue my life and education.
my choosing you is a question i knew you must ask and i think it is a good question.I have two reasons for choosing
you, i choosed you because it is the will of God.And i believe knowing you will bring hope back again to my life..the day i wrote you first,i picked up three addresses from a dating site and i prayed over it with my Reverend.He brought three pieces of papers and wrote three email addresses on them and fold them,he asked me to pick one and i picked your email address,then i decided to write you and i also believe that it is the will of God.
I will like you to send your pictures to me.And attachment here is my picture for
you also the pictures of my dead parents.
let me know how you will help me out of this plight, then i will send
bank information to you in my next mail..
Be a good man and God bless you..
Yours Truly Love
Miss Favour Jones.
