Good morning my dearest,
How are you doing today, hope all is well with you over there in your
country, i hope you are enjoying the atmosphere of peace and love. With due
respect, i hope this message will find you in the best of your health. I am
happy to receive your mail today because, i prayed and fasted for seven
days unto God for his help to find a responsible friend, before getting in
contact with you. I really want to let you know that in friendship age
difference or distance is never a problem. I will like to have a good
friendship with you.
I have a special reason why i decided to contact you, its because of the
urgency of my situation here and like i said my name is Miss Hope Okom, i
am from Abidjan, the capital city of Ivory Coast in west Africa. I'm 24
years old, my birthday was 9th April 1990, fair in complexion. I am a
medical student in the university, i stopped my education in 2013.
Please i wrote not only to introduce myself to you, but also know that the
receipt of my communication shall be a great surprise to you, considering
the fact that we did not know each other or had any negotiation before now.
I deemed it necessary to introduce myself in detail to you and the need for
your assistance to claim and invest my inheritance for me. I was a
secretary to my fathers company, starting from my school level up till his
My late father Dr. Okom Ododo was a successful business man. He was
unfortunately assassinated last years by my wicked uncle in the midst of
the civil war and political unrest in my country because of the problem he
had with him concerning his company. As my father's elder brother, he was
assisting my father as the manager of his company, You know that this world
is full of wickedness and evil. My father helped him because he is the only
blood brother which he have, due to his wickedness and greediness, he
planed with high killers and killed my father and pretended that my father
was killed by rebels, but he didn't know that i knows his secret.
After some months he plan to kill me as he killed my father, due to my
mother was also not alive, she died when i was at the age of 12, i didn't
even enjoy my mothers hood. And after her death, my father was taking very
good care of me till his death. So my wicked uncle want to take all the
factory and the company alone, But one of his guard reviewed the secret to
me and i manage to escape from my country after i received some threats
that shows me that he want me dead so that he will take all that belong to
my father, because i am the only child of my father. For life is much
important than wealth.
So i managed to escape to the nearest country called Senegal where i am now
living as a refugee. Here its just like one staying in the prison and i
hope by God's grace i will come out here soon. I never like tragedy and i
never wish to witness it ever again in my life. Life is really so hard over
here and presently the Senegalese government have been so kind to grant me
asylum and i am presently residing in the refugee camp of this country.
Here is very restricted and one is never allowed to move out to the country
without this country's residence permit.
The only person i have now is Rev. Father Jones Martins, who is the priest
at the church in the refugee camp, he has been very nice to me since i came
here, but i am not living with him rather i live in the females hostel
because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women. I write
you through his office computer and the Reverend tel number is (+221 774
949 466) if you call, please tell him that you want to speak with me so
that he will send for me in the hostel. Call him from 12pm to 3pm GMT.
Please as a refugee here i don't have any right or privilege to anything 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 in
the university, before the tragic incident that led to the death of my
father took place. My favorite language is english but our language is
french but i speak english very fluently because i went to American school.
Bye, have a nice day and think about me. Please accept my best and warmest

Good morning my dearest,
Thanks for your respond of my mail once again, i really appreciate your concern and willingness to rescue me out of this situation. The most important thing i need from you now is your honesty and trustworthiness. I contacted you based on my present status here in Dakar, as a refugee under asylum. According to the financial governing law of this country, people under refugee are not allowed to participate into monetary transaction or operate personal bank account with large sums international or locally.
Please i want you to understand more about my present situation here in the camp, i am e-mailing you from the office computer of the reverend father, who is in charge of the church in the refugee camp. I have explained to him a little about my life, though not everything and he permitted me to access my e-mail through his office computer regularly. Meanwhile, life is just not easy, since i don't have anybody here to take good care of me.
Please i need to further my education, no access to clean water, nor good food here in the refugee camp, life has not been easy for me since i came here in the refugee camp. I am only surviving through the aid of the reverend father, who is like a father to me, Please just call this number (+221 77-4949-466) ,and ask him of Miss Hope Okom. Please listen to this, i have my late father's statement of account and his death Certificate here with me which i will send to you later, 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 $3,728,000 dollars.
I went into serious discussion with the finance institution where the money is deposited on how to retain my late fathers money, they advice and told me that i will have a capable foreign partner who will assist me because of my refugee status. the best solution is by soliciting for assistance of a reliable foreigner, who can assist me claim, receive the fund and invest it on my behalf as i wish. I then decided to contact you, because keeping quiet over this situation will never solve my problem, hoping that with your advanced knowledge and experience, we can be able to work together,over this transfer. so that if everything works out for us, we can then go into life partnership. Actually it took me time to make up my mind to contact you and offered you this proposal of which my whole life depends on.
I kept this secret to people here,since i came here, so in the light of above, i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to any one, for i am afraid of loosing my life and money if people get's to know about it.
Furthermore, i am putting my entire asset of my late father to your care, because i believe you are a God fearing person and i want you to be in total control of my fund as soon as the fund arrives your country, since i will be going to School in your country, to further my higher education programme, before joining you finally into business.
Please i will like you to send me all this mentioned particulars, in order for me to know you the more and know whom i am dealing with. Bellow here is what i need from you, so that i can then send to you the bank information, as well as my late father's account details.
Please reply me urgently your.
Direct Telephone Number...

I will soon be with you for more love and care, over there in your base. May the good God bless you and your entire family. Please remember to send me your current picture in your next mail.
