Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed. If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage
to read more about 419 fraud.

I am glad to write given the opportunity now. Hope you are fine.Mine is
a bit okey here.I thank God for you. May God protect you for me.Happy
to meet you
In this camp we are only allowed to go out from the camp only on
Mondays and Fridays of the weeks.Its just like one staying in the prison and
I hope by Gods grace I and with your help will come out here soon.We
don't have any relatives now whom we can go to all our relatives ran away
in the middle of the war.
The only person we have now is Rev.Livinus Mathew who is the Reverend
Minister in charge of the church in this camp ( CHRIT DE SAVIOR
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's hostel because the camp have two
hostels one for men the other for women.The Pastors Tel number is
(+221-2016-057) Feel free to call me through his number. If you call
and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the
hostel. pls my love try call me today by by 4pm senegal time.
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
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 Europe which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in
question is $5.3(Five Million three Hundred Thousand US Dollars).
So I will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and
from it you send me money to prepare my travelling documents to come and
live with you to continue my studies. 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 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, understanding and God fearing people,truthful
and a man of vision, and hardworking.
My favourite language is english but our language is french but I speak
english very fluently because both my father and mother studied in
