My name is Awa Gukama I 'm 22, from Ivory Coast in
West Africa,5.11ft tall, Fair in complexion,(never
married before )presently, i am residing in the
refugee camp here in Dakar, as a result of the civil
war that was fought in my country.

My late father! Dr, Frank Gukama, was the managing
director of Gukama and Associates (Ltd), and he was
the personal advicer to the former head of state,
before the rebel's attacked our house one early morning
they killed my mother, also with my father in cold blood.

It was only me that is alive now,but I managed to make
my way to a near by country Senegal, where i am living
now in a refugee camp,and this computer is belonging
to a revrend that has the church here in the camp.
I would like to know more about you.Your like's and
dislike's,your hobbie's and what you are doing

I will tell you more about myself, in my next mail.
Attached here, is my picture.
Hoping to hear from you soonest,
Miss Awa




the second email:


How are you today?
I believe you are doing fine,
I am more than happy in your reply to my mail.
mine is a little bit cold over here in Dakar Senegal. Its 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 our relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is (Rev. Ken Kamaga) who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the women's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women.

The Pastors Tel number is (+221-357-35-49) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilledge 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 traggic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place, i will be execpting your call today by 3pm gmt time.

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 $9.7M (Nine Million seven Hundred Thousand Dollars). 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 travelling 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 Revrend 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 and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking.
My favourite language is english but our language is french but i speak english very fluently.Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said i have alot to tell you.
Have a nice day and think about me.
please i am waiting to hear from you soonest
Yours in love,


The third email:

Awa How are you today?,
I believe you are doing fine!
As for me i am fine here with all hopes to meet with you immediately after the transfer of my money to your position for a better life.
God will bless and reward you for every effort you are about to make to see me out from this horrible prison called refugee camp where i am living today as a result of the untimely death of my parents(may their gentle souls rest in peace).
I will be waiting for your call today by 3pm my time at the church office located in the refugee camp where i am living at moment with this number (+221-357-35-49)
I thank God for the life of Rev Ken Kamaga the pastor of the church located in the camp where i recieve and send emails to you.
He is like a father to us here as his church assists united nations here in Senegal in taking care of refugees. When you call tell him that you want to speak with me so that he will send for me from the females hostel totalk with you about what i am going through here.
Here is the contact information of the bank in London where the money was deposited by my late father is as follows,
TELEPHONE NUMBER IS +44--70-31-94-76-86
FAX NUMBER +44 871-715-25-14
Already i have informed this bank about my intention to claim my late father's deposit of which my name appears as the next of kin. The only thing the bank told me is to look for a foreign partner who will assiat me in the transfer due
to my refugee status here in Senegal,as a refugee i am not allowed direct claim of the money but through an appointed representative as the united refugee law
governing refugee all over the world states.
Based on this information i will like you to send an email to the transfer department of the bank today with this email addrress ( (
Attentioned MR LEED HANSON the foreign transfer officer of the bank telling him that you are my representative and that you want to assist me transfer
my 9.7 million dollars deposited by late father of which iam the next of kin after which you call me on phone today.
God bless you as you do this today,

Her from my own side I had tried to contact the bank to see the last of their lies and they had told me to prepare these papers:

The replay of the bank:
Mrs For your attention,

I have been directed by the director of Foreign Operation/Wire Transfer to write you in respect her mail we recieved today

Actually,we have earlier been told about you by the young lady Miss Awa Gukama that she wishes you to be her trustee/representative for the claim of her late father's deposit with our bank.
Late Dr. Frank Gukama is our late customer with substantial amount(US$9,700,000.00) of deposit with us.

Hence you have been really appointed as a trustee to represent the next of Kin.
However before our bank will transact any bussiness concerning the transfer of the fund with you , we will like you to send the followings:

1.A power of attorney permiting you to claim and transfer the funds to your bank account on her behalf. This document must be endorsed by a Senegalese resident lawyer which she can help you to get one.

2.The death certificate of late Dr Frank Gukama (Her deceased father)comfirming the death.

3.A copy of statement of account of the account issued to Dr Frank Gukama by our bank.

Note that the above are compulsory, and are needed to protect our interest,yours, the next of kin after the claims. These shall also ensure that a smooth, quick and successful transfer of the fund is made. We promise to give our customers the best of our services.

Should you have any question(s), please contact our foreign transfer officer Mr. Leed Hanson for more directives/clarifications on this telephone number 0044-70-31-94-76-86

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Jane Lewis.

Presently i have my late father death certificate and statement of account with me here which i have given to the lawyer to send to you  when you contact him and here is the photo of it which i attacth here.
The only problem we have now is the power of attorney which the bank said that it will be issued by a lawyer here in senegal for me to sign my signature on it.After reading your mail,
I discussed it with Rev Ken Kamaga and he gave me the contact of this lawyer BARRISTER Paul Okwuta.He is one of the lawyers working with the unitednations here in dakar senegal.I will want you to contact him on both phone and email telling him that you are my foreign partner thatyou need his services to prepare a power of attorney that will enable you transfer my 9.7 million dollars from RABO BANK OF LONDON to your account on my behalf due to my refugee status.His contact informations are as follows,

The fifth email:

Now it is the lawyer turn:

Attention Sir,

Sequel to your email on how to prepare a power of attorney for you and your partner Miss Cintia Gukama . Your partner Miss Cintia was in my office with Rev Ken Kamaga to discuss about the issuing to you an authorisation letter that will enable you stand on her behalf to transfer her money from RABO BANK OF LONDON to your account in your country or elsewhere.

Prior to my enquries from the bank and high court,I understand from the bank that there are three documents required by them before the transfer of the money to you.

1.A copy of Death certificate of Dr Frank Gukama.

2.A copy of His Statement of account.(WHICH I HAVE ATTACHED TO THIS MAIL).

It is now remaining one document. Which is power of attorney which will enable the Bank to deal with you on behalf of your partner.

From my enquiries, it will cost t he sum of 1050Us Dollars for authentic ation of the power of attorney at the high court before it becomes valid and 300Us Dollars for notary stamping at the notary republic My legal processing fee of 200Us Dollars total (1550Us Dollars)

To speedy the process you are to send these money to me today through western union money transfer system.(which is the fastest way of sending money to enable my noble office prepare and validate the power of attorney here in the high court and notary republic respectively.

You are to send the 1550US Dollars with my name Barrister Paul Okwuta

The sixth email :

Awa My Darling,
How are you today?.
I believe you are fine.
My love i am doing well with all hopes to join you for a better life immediately
after the transfer of my money to your account for a better life with you.
God will bless and reward you for every effort you are making
to help me come out from this prison called refugee camp.
My Darling, immediately reading your mail today i went to the lawyer office  with the Rev Father to know how he make a mistake on my name and i know if the power of attorney is ready so that i will sign my signature on the power of attorney for the bank to transfer my money to your account.

The lawyer told me that a sum total of 1550US Dollars would be paid as his charges before he will prepare the power of attorney for us.
My dear please i know that this money is very big but i am pleading that you should help me to pay the lawyer this money as you will get your money immediately after transfer.
As you are aware that it is just this power of attorney  that is delaying the transfer of my money to your position.
As soon as this is prepared the bank will transfer my money to your position for me to come over to meet with you for the rest of my life.
My Dearest, I so  much believe in you, In you i fully rest my hope upon, So every hope is lost?  How can i live to remain in this type of situation?  What shall i do about this unexpected disappointment please help me, I know that things are very hard as it is now but you have to think about my condition here and bear it in mind that what ever you do for me will never be a waste.
I don't have any body and any money to give the lawyer for the issuing of the power of attorney. I am a refugee beside i don't know any one here except our Rev father who has been give some little little assistance. He is a man of God working under church ministry and he don't have money of his.
He eats through the ministry and also from church offerings, He don't have any other business that fetch him money. Please my dearest don't abandon me. Remember that both of us are going to live together in fulure. The money belongs to me but in other way for you too. Tell me what you want me to do for i m getting it to hot now and don't know if can survive the situation.
I hope that after going through this mail i will have a good result from you.I am for you come rain come shine.
May i beg to stop here, Awaiting for your reply as soon as possible.
Love always,
