I am glad reading your mail, How are
you today ? I hope you are fine. I thank God for you, your message
was a total relief to me. I love the way you sound to me, and I
promise to be with you and I will like you to help me to come out of
this camp so that I come to your country and have a free life. In this camp, we are many living as
refugees and our freedom is restricted because we do not have any
traveling paper.It is just like one staying in the prison and I hope
by Gods grace I will come out of here very soon.
At the moment, I do not have any
relative whom I can go to, all my relatives ran away in the middle of
the war.The only person I have now is Rev. Ezekiel Abdalla who is the
Reverend Minister in charge of the church here in the camp (Apostolic
Catholic Church). He has been very nice to me since I came here but I
am not living with him rather I am living in the women hostel because
the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women. The
Pastor's telephone number +221774451197 Please feel free to call me
through his number because i have told him about you.If you call,
tell him that you want to speak with me, he will send for me from the
hostel to come and answer your call.
As a refugee I do not have any right or
privilege to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against
the law of this country. Meanwhile, I am communicating with you
through the Reverend's computer because this is the only means we can
communicate to each other. Again I do not work or do anything for
living as a result that eating is very difficult as we are given food
ones a day.
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 Africa here which
he used my name as the next of kin, the amount in question is $5.8
Million U.S Dollars (five million eight hundred thousand US Dollars).
Meanwhile, I will like you to help me process and transfer this money
to your account as my foreign partner which was the bank's condition
to get the money transferred After transfer. The fund will be shared
at the ratio of 51% for me, 45% for you and 4% will be set aside to
cover any expenses and tax in your bank, From it, you can send me
money to prepare and get ready my travel documents to come over to
I kept this a top 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. Meanwhile, I am communicating with
you through the Reverend's computer because this is the only means we
can communicate to each other.
My dear, let us plan on how to meet you
now, in your country because I had a conversation with the Reverend
today about how I can meet you there in your country. According to
the Reverend, I need to have International passport in order to
warrant and secure my departure from this camp. He said that with the
passport, I will have freedom to visit you in your country. I will be
waiting to hear from you.
Here is the Reverend's contact:
Name: Rev. Ezekiel Abdalla
So in the light of above I will like
you to keep this information to yourself only, do not tell it to
anyone for I am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people
gets to know it. Your thoughts is my reasons of trusting in you, I
believe you will always be sincere and will never hurt or let me down
in any way. I'm looking forward for your positive response so i can
give you the full details. contact.Of the bank in Africa here. Have a
nice day and pray for me. I awaiting to hear from you soon.
