Subject: Dear This is brief information about me, i will also like to know more bout you.
I really thank you for responding to my little invitation for friendship. l hope you are very fine and enjoying yourself.
name is Miss Goodness Joseph, I am from Somalia in Eastern part of
Africa (Horn of Africa) and I am presently residing in a Church
Orphanage Home here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the Civil War that
was fought in my
Country some years ago which has restarted again recently, I was born
on Tuesday, the 1st day of March, 1988 (twenty-four (24) years old),
single and never married, 5ft 8 inches tall, 55kg weight, black hair and
brown eyes. I love singing, watching movies. I also love sharing ideas
I lost my Parents during this deadly Political War that
damaged thousands of innocent souls in Somalia. My family was among the
first target of the rebels because my Late Father was a successful
Businessman and also a politician who was an active supporter of the
Government at that time.
Because of the War, all the members of
my family were murdered in a cold blood and our family house was set
ablaze. I was lucky and escaped death because I was living in school
when this deadly incident took place. I am the only one alive as I
managed to make my way to a nearby Country called Senegal with the Help
of United Nations Officials. I have vowed not to return to my Country
again as going there will bring back the ugly memory of the past to me.
is something which has been bothering me and I kept it to myself for
long because, I am afraid to disclose it to anyone, to avoid betrayals
and somebody taking advantage of me. But if you will promise me that you
will stand by me as a friend then I will open
up to you.
I would like to know more about you and what you are
doing presently. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail.
Attached to this mail is my picture too, may God guide and protect you. I
will be waiting for your reply. Have a wonderful day.

Bank to transfer the money to me and the Bank replied that since i am

transfer it to me if i am married or if i can present a foreign Partner
