Subject: THIS IS ALL ABOUT ME DEAR I NEED YOUR HELP
I am more than happy in your reply to my mail.
you? How is your day ? hope is fine.?
Mine is a little bit cold over
here in Dakar Senegal .
In this camp we are only allowed to go out
from the camp only on few days 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 relative now whom i can go. To all my relatives ran away in
the middle of the war, the only person i have now is Reverend Clement
Johnson who is the Reverend Father 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.
Pastors email address is (rev.father_ClementJohnson@yahoo.com)
contact him if want to know more about me and his Tel number is
(+221-77-627-5986) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with
me he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any
right or privilege 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 death certificate and his deposit certificate here
with me, because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in
one of the leading banks in Europe which he used my name as the next of
kin,the amount in question is $7.1(SEVEN Million ONE Hundred Thousand
US 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 traveling
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
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.I want you to send me your full information as below (CV)
To assure me that you will not betray me in this transfer,mostly when
this money enter to your position.
2. For you to take me as your
sister or even wife as I'm still single and welcome me into your life as
i don't have anybody in this whole world anymore. With the assurance
given after going through this mail, then you send me your information
Full Names . . . . . Telephone
Number. . . .
Your Occupation. . . . . Your Age. . . . . .

I will then use them and write the
official letter to the bank, i will give you the contact of the finance
bank and the account details so that you will as well contact them
directly in regard of the transfer.My favorite language is English cos i
grown up in free town but we speak French here in Senegal Meanwhile i
