Subject: HONEY THIS IS MY FULL LIFE STORY AND TRUST
Firstly I thank you for your response to my email;Enline with the message I sent to you ,Do not be surprise or get offended for receiving this message from me please, Its just that I have been obliged to lay a mere trust on you due to my situation here as a refugee and I will require the best of your honesty after your knowing about me, I will really like us to have a good relationship inspite of anything because I have this feeling that you are not going to betray me at the end.
I contacted you because of the urgency of my situation here in the refugee camp, I am a single daughter of my step-mother back there in Rwanda( because i am from a poligamous family),I grew up in Rwanda my country, I had my college certificate in the year 2000, I was admited into the University in 2002 there I did my one year subject in business management before the political crisis in my country began,My father was killed by some rebels during the war,they accused my father of coup attempt, and i lost my mother during the war also and so many of my family members our house was burnt down, I lost all my important documents like / international passport / Birth Certificate / University ID card.
I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment i am receiving from my step mother in Rwanda since the death of my parents.She planned to take away all my late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved parents.
So,I decided to run away to any African country so i had to run to where I am presently seeking asylum under the Private charity organization for the UN Refugees here in Dakar, Republic of Senegal. I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship that may lead us to somewhere better if we work well on it.
My late father of blessed memory deposited the sum of (US$9, 700, 000.00) (Nine Million Seven Hundred Thousand Dollars) in one of the leading Banks in europe with my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you the contact information of the bank in europe and some documents for your confirmation in your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund.As you will help me in an invsetment, and i will like to complete my studies under you, as i was in my 1st year in the university, when the crisis started.
After the transaction you will arrange for my trip to join you over there in your country for us to share this feelings face to face.
We will invest the fund, or if you don't intend staying with me then It will be my pleasure to compensate you out of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only,for confidential purposes(you can call me today atleast to hear my voice and i hear yours too).
As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this relationship and transaction sincerely.
Awaiting your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this only to your self please I begg you not to disclose it to anyone untill i come over , once the fund has been transfered.
Meanwhile the name of the Revrend father that i am using his computer to send this messages to you is Rev Sylvester Thomas,his Telephone number is
(0022176 477-384 5 ) you can call him today and tell him to call me so that you can talk to me please because i want to hear your voice but don't tell him anything about the money,for security reasons,i trust only you and no body else.
Just tell him that you want to speak with Rose Cota
from Rwanda because there are so many other Nationalities who has one problem or the other in the camp here. I have attached another picture for you.
You can adopt me as a daughter or friend please because i really need your help to getout from here as soon as possible.
Awaiting to hear from you soonest
