Subject: DEAR THIS IS ALL ABOUT ME
firstly i thank you for your response to my email. How is everything over there, i believe that you are in good health and that the atmosphere over there in your country is very nice today? Mine is a bit warm over here in Dakar Senegal.
My name is Blessing Bacon i am (24years old) but age doesn' t matter in a real relationship so i am comfortable with your age, I am from (Ivory Coast in West Africa) 5.3ft tall, fair in complexion, single (never married ) and presently i am residing here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago.
My late father Dr. Philip Bacon was a politician and the managing director of a (Gold & Mine Industry) in Ivory Coast in West Africa before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my father and mother in cold blood. I know that i should have waited for our relationship to last a while before i tell you all this secret, but because of my situation here in the camp, and i don' t want to die here, please understand me.
Right now, as i am talking to you, i am the only person alive in my family, and I managed to make my way to a near by country (Senegal) where i am leaving now as a refugee under the care of a Reverend Pastor and i am using his computer to send these message to you now.
Please do not be offended for this message that comes from me, its just that i don' t know what else to do, because my situation here as a refugee is giving me a great concern, therefore i will like you to consider my situation as an orphan, and be kind with me, as i am putting the whole of my trust on you without fear, though i don' t know who you are before, but i believe that you can not betray it at the end.
I have contacted you because of my difficult situation here in this refugee camp, It' s 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, all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is the pastor ( Rev- Patric Devine ), who is the pastor of the ( CHRIST DE SAVIOR MISSION ), here in the camp he has been very nice to every body, but we are not leaving with him rather we are leaving in the hostel, which is divided into two sections, one for the male, and the other for the female.
The Pastors Tel. number is ( +221- 77-43-69793 ), if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me ( Blessing) he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here, i don' t have any right or privilege to anything be it phone or what ever, because it' s against their law.
My love 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.
NOTE; Please listen to this (please it' s a secret, even no one knows about it except the Reverend father that knows about it),
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 Foreign bank which he used my name as the next of kin, the total amount, is $6.7 ( $6.7 Six Million Seven Hundred Thousand USDollars).
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 to me.
So, i will like you to keep it to yourself and don' t tell it to anyone because 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, hardworking and GOD fearing people.
My favorite language is English and i speak French very fluently. Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said i have a lot to tell you, the attached are my picture. Have a nice day and think about me, awaiting to hear from you soonest.
Your beloved one
