Dakar Senegal. In this camp we find it hard to go out because we are not
allowed to do so, its just like one staying in the prison and l hope by
God's grace l will come out this soon. I don't have any relatives now that i
can go to, all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only
person i have now is Rev. Thomas Ba who is the Reverend pastor of the
(Christ the king Churches) here in the camp he has been very good to me
since l came to this camp, but meanwhile, l am not living with him rather l
live in the women's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men
the other for women. The Pastor's Tel number is (00221-763-43-80-11) if you
call, tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the
As a refugee, i don't have any right or privilege to any thing pertaining
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 place.
Honey, please l would like you to know that l have my late father's Deposit
certificate and death certificate here with me which l will like to send to
you to assist me,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money
in the Bank which he used my name as the next of kin. The amount in question
is $7.5(Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars).
So l will like you to assist me transfer this money to your account and from
it you will send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air
ticket to come over to meet with you. I can't withdraw the money my self due
to my refugee statues here in this country which does not permit me to,
rather the money can't be transferred in Senegal where i am in refugee
statues. I want you to send me your contact information's such as your
Bank Info ........................................
I have got in touch with the bank and made them to know about my plans to
withdraw this money, l also got them aware of the death of my father and
they have acknowledged it with all there confirmation. However, they advise
me to get in touch with a very responsible person who will stand on my
behalf and my trustee as regards to this money since l am presently of
refugee status over here and wouldn't be permitted to handle this amount of
money, they also let me know about the bond which they signed with my father
that they money will be handled to me in bulk amount which means that l
should decide on if l should continue with the bank or not.
I just have to let you know about this so that you can assist me to be my
trustee on this money. like l said l want you to call me because l have alto
to tell you.l 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. Have
a nice time and think about me. my dear, this is the email address of the
Reverend (firstname.lastname@example.org). l hope to hear from you soonest. l love
